Maybe FLY's speculation that he is not 100% may be true

The thinking is probably that, despite the season Cally is having, Dawes gives you better finishing for a team that needs goals wherever they can find them.

suit up Dawes

For Orr, they do not need Orr Sunday and need Dawes legs and ability against the fast Hrrricanes..

I wonder why they have Liffiton up also...

Does the call up of Dawes and Lifton count against the four call-ups they can use after the trade deadline?

This is Roberto Duran and Duran Duran. Especially if they got married and Duran Duran decided to keep his last name and add Robertos after his own, like Duran Duran-Duran.

Dawes was sent back down before the game and played in the Pack game.

I remember watching alot of Dawes back in the day when he played with Canada at the WJC. I always thought he would be a solid player in the NHL someday, hopefully he's not too good now though, we need you guys to lose so we can squak into the playoffs.

Great post!

And look at Pck. For 2 years he have been in the middle of discussions. Renney were the anti-christ for not playing him over ROSZIVAL in last seasons camp. Renney were the anti christ for not playing him right out of camp this season. Now when he is played, after every game, there are post like "Pck is the worst D in the league".

It have been obvious for a long time that Pck defenitly have his flaws, and he have struggled allot in certain areas in HFD.

Its always the same, if you even hinted that Poti were better then Pck you got jumped on here last season.

I haven't heard a lot of those sentiments. I think most people realize what Pock is and are still happy with his role and contribution. I am.

On the subject of the youth movement, I would say a good argument could be made regarding who's been promoted, for how long and how/whether they were used. There's more to the discussion than just the average age of the roster in the last game.

Eh, I'm not so happy with Pock's lack of offensive production...because without adding some of that in, he's nothing more than a mediocre defender.

However, it can be said he hasn't been put in a position to use a lot of that offense.

Couple of things:

1) I don't think anyone ever said that Pock was better than Poti. There were people who felt that giving Pock a look in place of Poti. The feelings were it would not hurt to play Pock in place of Poti. And playing him would be beneficial long-term in that the team would at least know what they had in him. And, for me, that thought process hasn't changed.

2) I don't think Pock is the worst defenseman in the league.

3) I have long said that I don't think he's an NHL player. And I have not seen enough for me to reverse that opinion.

I've seen enough of Pock to know this....he gets burned to the outside all too often, and his offensive game is not all its cracked up to be. I won't shed a tear if he isn't here next season, Rachunek is a much bettter player than he will ever be.

Great post JAS, if only becasue we are in toital agreement....

I am also not that impressed with Pock and, in retrospect, I can see the reasons why Renney was not very comfortable in playing him early on..The kid is just a little sub-standard when it comes to defensive abilities and, IMO, his offensive instincts AS A D-MAN, also don;t seem the greatest...OK, with limited ice time but my bet is Tomas Pock will be in another uniform next season...
