Does this mean the Preds have thrown in the towel?

I've seen him play several times in Milwaukee. A decent defensive defensemen with a bit of a mean streak, he should be a regular #5 or #6 in Springfield next season.

Or perhaps the team is opening up a spot and we are now about to hear a predatory Gonchar trade rumor from a Nashville country music station.

Looks like Feaster got his "impact player" without sacrificing anyone from the roster! Way to go, chief!

timo was, by far, the worst defenseman in milwaukee(since smrek and beckett left). i guess he's an okay farmhand, but he'll never see the nhl. this, more than likely, is to make room for whomever gets sent down, since neckar will be activated tomorrow, and we're not carrying 8 d-men.

Ha Ha

Touche.

I seriously doubt he even considers this in the realm of a deadline type deal.

TB's AHL defense corps consists of Pascal Trepanier, Gerard Dicaire (who's a frequent healthy scratch in Utah but has a bright future) and Jeremy Van Hoof - who's an ECHL regular and an AHL call-up. The guy they wanted to be ready this year, Andreas Holmqvist, is in Pensacola struggling to adjust to the NA game.

AHL defense depth was in need of help. Cullimore was knocked out of a game recently with a leg bruise. He was back the next game, but perhaps this was an alarm to Feaster that should injuries start to hit, they need some help.

Perhaps, also, Poile looked at TB's AHL dman depth, needed a roster spot for someone in Milwaukee, and initiated the deal.

According to today's Tennessean we are.

Quote:
The Predators have been rotating Jamie Allison and Robert Schnabel at one defensive spot, as Allison has played in five of the past nine games and Schnabel in the other four.

But Trotz said the team has no plans to reassign either Allison or Schnabel now that Neckar is healthy. Neckar has been on the Predators roster since he was assigned to Milwaukee, which gave Nashville the maximum 23 players allowed.

''We plan to keep all eight,'' Trotz said. ''You can never have enough defensemen, and that's an area where we could use some more depth.''
