I think Kubalik will be next. When Umberger gets traded on Monday.

Might as well. See what he can do down the finish line.


So, are Carter and Vermette the guys the Org wanted to shield from the young guys?

Exactly why I said that.

On-topic: Hoping for good things from and for Cam.

This should be fun. Welcome to the spring cleaning Atkinson, there will be a fresh and clean smell in the locker room.

i'm not really happy about this move. he (on a personal note) is going for the scoring title. (on a team note) they (springfield) can still make the playoffs. why not have him finish off the year down there and worry about prospects and ahl personnel after the season? hey if cam can score then he should've been up here from the beginning. its like the cbj brass are saying thanks for the money for this throw away season and now we will try to build a real competitive team for the final two months. howson has to go before i blow a gasket.

Agree on all points. RyJo isn't even playing Center yet, why bring up Cam? And yes, Howson must go.

He's earned the call up. Nothing else needs to be said IMO.

earned-yes. sent down to springfield early in the season-maybe. but if ryjo isnt playing center and has faded as the season has went on, and isnt going back to juniors. and we have went through this season without another sniper, then why now? i want to see what cam can do with the big club, but why now? couldn't we have used his goal scoring the whole season?

To me, when deciding what to do with Atkinson, Johansen has no part in that thinking. What position he is playing has even less to do with it.

As far as why they didn't call him up, we can only speculate. Arniel didn't want him exposed to the suck. Arniel is gone. Was that just Arniel or was Howson involved?

You are thinking way too much about this IMHO. Atkinson is not on a sliding rule ELC, so there is no harm in letting him play out the season. He's earned the call up. My sympathy to Springfield, those are the fans that have any real reason to gripe.

Is Atkinson suddenly going to help us win games? Well we traded two veterans and we still have a lot of AHL talent up here. We are probably going to lose another player or three. We could suddenly become very thin on veteran forwards. I'm not afraid of us suddenly running off on a 100 point pace the rest of the year. Teams are going to be desperate for points.

You act like Cam would have saved us from being 11 points back from the other worst team in the NHL.

The way Cam has been playing, he deserves a call-up. Whether he should stay, I'm not so sure. Keeping him, Kubalik and the rest of the prospects in Springfield for a playoff push likely would be better than meaningless NHL games. But whatever would help prepare the prospects for next season.

In a few weeks the Falcons should be getting some of the college/CHL prospects whose seasons are ending too. So they'll have at least some help if there are more call-ups.

I just hope Howson isn't showcasing him in preparation for a trade

I doubt it, Cam has not been a contributor to CBJ losing this season, he's a depth player as of now with an upside to become a smallish yet solid NHL player.., he needs to play at the NHL level to find out and this is a good time for him to get some NHL experience.

Oh boy. Two games before the deadline should be plenty of time for scouting.
