I haven't beed on the boards to post in ages , but i have to say boyce in for dupuis is what I've been waiting for all season long , i think dupuis was given too much credit because he was an off season signing . This move improves our GA right away ! I'm Pumped .
Kadri still in the minors and rightfully so, Boyce will provide the elements required to keep us headed towards a playoff game. Unless Kadri is secretly a phenomenal penalty killer (hint, he's not) then this is the right move. We aren't losing games because we can't score goals, and since that's all Kadri brings to the table (which is comical to say given his numbers in the NHL so far, but absolutely true) he should stay in the minors. Wilson has this team headed for the playoffs, it has been a long time since we've been in the top 8 of the east late in december. I'll trust his coaching decisions over anything the turds on this board have to say.
I'd take Kadri just for the fact he is good against Boston, Buffalo and Ottawa.
I trust Wilson to say: "Let's GO" every now and then.
Wilson is using the top six more for the PK. Perfect time to bring up Kadri. You gonna love this kid. He is going to be great.
Adding Kadri to this lineup would seriously cripple us defensively. Boyce is the man for the job without question. Kadri will probably get his chance as a late season call up if he's still with the team after the deadline. Let him be hungry for a while and let him earn it.
We are in our defensive zone most of the game. hint hint Imma get at you dog!
No but everyone you just mentioned is significantly better in the defensive end than Kadri. Thing about Kadri is that he could help us but he could also really hurt us as well.
I think a lot of people are letting our quick start blind the real skill level of this team. We are normalizing now and are going to spend the rest of the year battling. There will be roster moves to better the team but they will be bigger than rushing your best prospect. That is the one thing we should avoid at all costs. Kadri is almost ready, almost.
have you watched any games this year? This team doesn't play defense at all. They play a run and gun prefect for kadri.

You mean our last place Pk right? Out doesn't matter who's out there Wilson can't coach the Pk.

Because Boyce would definitely be the answer.

Like I said earlier, every pro, former coaches, players, analysts have really liked Frattin's play of late(you didn't take up my challenge, so clearly you agree), but here we have some dude in his basement named Zeke who really knows what time it is.
Funny. BTW, you'd have some credibility if you could at least acknowledge improved play, rather than just the usual "he stole my guy's reserved spot" routine you've been on and on and on and on and on about since October.
Frattin is making a fool out of you, game by game....
Kadri is better then frattin so I don't know where you're going with this
Looking at this Roster we have now those prospects may as well be getting NHL time. We don't have much other choice. I don't really care how great the team is this year but I want them to improve the PK and at least push for a playoff spot.
Colborne + Kadri = Should be on the team right now.
Frattin = Should be playing with them. (The Kid line)
My personal theory is that if they start now working together in the NHL they could move up in the future. They should be learning defensive strategies in the NHL right now anyways. Need to improve the two way game but Wilson has no defensive strategy so maybe a bad idea...
