Welcome back, Taylor Beck

After the Hendricks trade, the Preds had room for another forward, and it looks like Taylor Beck is getting the call.

About damn time. He played well enough last year I thought to have a spot on the roster.

Nice to see him get the call up, but I don't think he or any 1 of the Milwaukee kids will help any.

Posted this in the Minors/Prospects thread but since he's back up, I'll post it here too.

Good story on Taylor Beck

while Beck could end up being a decent 3rd line player I was hoping Watson would get called up. I see a lot more potential from Watson than I do from Beck. Hope he does well though but I wouldn't expect much honestly.

Watched some Ads games this season, Beck really impresses me. But I have also been really impressed by Salomaki and Sissons, watch out for those two.

Forsberg should really be in Nashville too tbh.

I thought he projected as a 30-20 type top sixer

Beck? Nah. His skating would have to improve 10 fold to be a top 6 NHLer. I do not see that happening but a solid 3rd or 4th line NHLer I can see him being.

It would be a waste to have him play 7-8 minutes imo. Will be interesting to see if he breaks into the lineup next game. Hope so.

Really? I thought he was a 2nd line pwf type. At worst, 3rd line. I don't envision him as a grinder though.

I think you're underrating him quite a bit. He could definitely play in the top 6 if he reaches anywhere close to his ceiling.

You get the Gold Star!

Some of the other posts are borderline whacky.

Beck's biggest problem is lack of consistency. If he can finish better, he could be a force in the NHL. I could see him as a 20 or so goals and 30 assists per season guy, given the right line mates.

Forsberg needs to round out his game. That won't happen in Nashville playing 2 shifts a period every other game. He can play in all situations in Milwaukee and grow here.

You are correct about S & S. They have caught fire. I thought that Salomaki was going to get a hatter last night. Sissons leads the team with 15 goals in 39 games.

Always glad to see the young guys get a chance, especially considering most of our old guys don't exactly set the world on fire most of the time.

Watched a Preds game for the 2nd game in a row to watch Beck, but it looks like he's getting the same 'treatment' as Forsberg was.

You mean scratched. Trotz has to go. He couldn't find a spot for Wayne Gretzky!

Beck was brought up as the 13th forward in case something came up on the road trip, not to dislodge anyone from the top nine and doesn't really fit on a 4th line. He isn't getting a "treatment".

Welcome to the bench Beck. We only called you up in case someone lost a tire!

They only called Beck up because they wanted an extra forward on the road trip in case of injury. Trotz has the don't change the lineup if we are winning philosophy. After the loss against the Flames Beck will probably play against Edmonton.
