If the organization wants to develop Bulmer's offensive game, they might leave him in the AHL and call someone else up instead of giving him 4th line minutes (as we're setup to slot callups into 4th line spots and slide NHLers).
Time is running out for all of them to establish themselves as NHLers. With all the moves Fletcher made this off-season their jobs in Houston aren't exactly safe either. Wouldn't have shocked me to see another one go to Europe like Almond did, as now might've been a good time to get some security(multi-year contract).
Not high on any of them. Two were basically given to us by the Devils(McIntyre/Palmieri, separate trades), one is 26(Palmer), and the other can't produce(McMillan). McMillan/McIntyre can play 4th line shifts and fill 4th line roles but they were constantly shuffled last year while Peters/Ortmeyer remained constant with the Wild. Not very promising if you're 23/24 and can't earn line-up spots over 30 year old career minor leaguers.
