oddly enough im doing concussion testing at 5pm tomorrow (i dont have one, its required for fau hockey) lol and i absolutely loveeeee markstroms new pads!! hopefully bjugstad heals quickly, he was gonna play in SA either way to start. and im extremely happy to hear versteeg will be ready to start, hopefully bergy too, jovo out is kinda (unfortunately) a good thing, robak and gilroy will probably be that 3rd line.

i'd say it's extremely unlikely that he starts with the big club, especially now with his concussion

we have gomez, goc and matthias locked in one one-way deals at center, and barkov sounds like a lock with how they're talking. that leaves no spots open for any centers.

there's always a possibility of moving matthias to wing if one of bjugstad/shore/trochek have an incredible camp....but now with this injury that doesn't seem likely IMO.

How on earth did Gilroy become so hated by everybody? Is he really terrible?

He plays worse defense than a traffic cone.

Barkov just showed some serious puck control in the corner against Petrovic... And I've thought Petro, along with Kuli have been the best D so far in this group.

Markstrom a pads definitely seem smaller.. His 5 hole looks way smaller. I like the way he's covering down low.

Also.. I think Gomez has looked petty good. Along with Cornet, he will be solid for San Antonio. It also surprises me How late we got josh brown, he's got serious size, a decent shot and isn't that terrible of a skater.

Watching Barkov is making me feel a little better about passing jones. Even though this is just a small sample size. And I can't stress how good markstrom is looking. He looks so much quicker down low with the smaller pads, it's noticeable.

Interestingly enough, this was my favorite addition for the Rampage this offseason. I am incredibly excited to watch him this season.

Tbh.. The difference in what Weiss brought us and what Gomez is going to bring... Isn't that big. He looks pretty similar.

They play similar styles, plus Weiss was completely useless since our playoff series vs. the Devils, so having some production vs. none will be good.

I also think boyes will be great for us. We're used to having 2nd and 3rd liners as our first liners. Boyes is a legitimate NHL player, who has put up more points than anyone else on our roster in the past. His skills should make him look superior to most of our players, and I could see him getting a first line spot on our team if he plays well.

Seems like the line in this second unit is Kopecky-Shore-Boyes

They said his hip was still recovering.....I guess they might be being extra cautious?

We're on the same page. I don't think we'll be as bad as people think.

Switching rinks... Upshall, Shore and Howden have all been kinda disappointingly rusty. Gudbranson has been very good, very physical. Trocheck hasn't done anything really to catch my eye. Robak, Weegar and Caruso have all been pretty solid too.

I just think Howden isn't a top 6 guy, he's gonna be Radek Dvorak.
