I wonder if the Coyotes will grab him back? I remember hearing talk of that when we grabbed him.

He still needs considerable work on his skating to make it in the NHL. Since there's only so much room he's likely to improve on his skating he probably more importantly needs to develop the sense and experience for how to be successful in the NHL with sub-average skating ability. There are lots of talented shooters that have been able to do that, but probably more that haven't.

I suppose we've seen enough of him and with Stapleton and McArdle on the roster right now, management obviously likes them over MacLean.

I think it's a safe bet they will since they can send him to the AHL without waivers if they're the only team putting in a claim. I doubt at this point any other NHL club will put in a waiver claim if the Jets are cutting him loose.

I think it was pretty clear that MacLean doesn't fit well into a bottom six role. He isn't a defensive player and doesn't fill the checking roles that would be expected of him. In a way I wish we could have nabbed him on waivers next season, when Scheifele would be expected to be on the roster and we could have provided MacLean with some offensive support.

But oh well.

Heh, that sounded wrong didn't it? Sorry 'bout that.

Another swag at it: He couldn't make the NHL roster in Phoenix when it seems like his skill set was a major need for the club. He gets claimed by a Winnipeg team that could also use that skill set and again he can't make the NHL roster. I think at this point any other teams even if they haven't scouted Mac heavily are probably going to give Phoenix and Winnipeg the benefit of the doubt in evaluating that he isn't ready for the NHL yet and pass on claiming him.

I know what you meant
Just busting your chops haha
He has had two shots at NHL rosters this year and didnt make it.
Phoenix wanted him in the A... so they will probably get their wish after all

Why bother claiming him if you were not going to give him an honest chance. Do not like this move one bit

I think we have enough goalies in the system at this point. We have enough issues trying to get icetime for goalies in St. John's.

If we claim him we have to keep him on the main roster. If they try to send him down, he would have to clear waivers again, and Tampa Bay would just claim him right back and send him down (at that point he would not have to clear waivers if TBL was the only team claiming him back, which would be likely). So waivers is not the way to get the guy.

I agree this was stupid why claim him if your not going to give him a shot, where not going to be that competitive this year why not give him a shot. NYI might give him a go I can see him working well there.

They probably didn't know he was this soft a player, he can't skate and he is poor defensively.

Why would you even waste ice time in St. Johns on this guy, he will never be an NHL player.

1. AHL teams are not entirely composed of players who are being groomed for the NHL.

2. You need players like this in the AHL to be called up in emergency relief.

Soft, because he was always crashing the net? Or bad defensively when he was leading the team with a +1 before last game? Not a great skater, no, he was pretty much always in the right position. This move makes no sense, with plugs like Stapleton, Jones, Meech, McArdle still taking roster spots and we get rid of a legit goalscoring prospect. One game tricks the Jets into thinking they suddenly have an offense?

Wonder if this is to make room for Hainsey coming off IR.

There I just made the team better

I think you may be right.

He didn't travel with the team to Philly but should be meeting up with them soon.

Really don't get the hardon for Maclean. At what point does a player stop being a prospect. He's almost 23 and in 3 years of pro hockey hasn't shown enough for the Coyotes (who are far from an offensive powerhouse) to play him more than a handful of games.

Yeah they're gonna send Jones or Meech down over Maclean. Thats nonsensical.
