You guys will like Thomas. Good guy and a good player. He should fit very well on the bigger ice where he doesn't have to play as physical and can rely more on his natural skills.

Seems like some room is being made for our upcoming prospects going from the CHL to the AHL.

Looks like the Avs brought back Van Der Gulik for another year.

Lake Erie hired Randy Ladoucer as their new assistant coach. He's been an NHL assistant for 10 seasons in total.

They also hired a goalie coach themselves in Jean-Ian Filiatrault

The Monsters are somehow going to play outside before the Avs.

Patrick Roy is going to send down the entire AVs roster for a "conditioning game" in protest of the AVs being passed over for so long.

Making the 5 hour drive to watch the Monsters in Rochester... can't wait!

Forgive my ignorance, but is Bordeleau a full time NHL'er now, or is there any chance I'll get to watch him in Cleveland again??

He's ours, we just gave him a mil per year contract for three years.

This should be a really interesting year in Lake Erie as well. With Siemens and Elliott being reunited on the first pairing in front of Pickard/Aitto with Sgar and hish in the team up front. With how well both Elliott and Siemens finished the year I think they're in for a big year together again.

Really like the way LEM will be built in net and on D. Pickard and Aittokallio form, arguably, the best goaltender tandem in the Western Conference. A defense of Siemens, Elliott, Stollery, Lauridsen, and Beaupre is a great start and leaves just one spot open for whoever shows up to camp.

The concern will be goal scoring. If Hishon can stay in the lineup, he'll certainly help, but the team needs help on the wings for Agozzino and Sgarbossa. Mitchell Heard should be around to add some sandpaper. Saw Garrett Meurs when I went to visit a buddy up in Michigan and we went to the Whalers game. Hopefully he'll be in Cleveland.

Looking forward to it. It'll be a fresh change to watch a team with good goaltending and a good defense corps.

I think the D will be Siemens, Elliott, Holden, Guenin, Lauridson and Beaupre with Stollery as the 7th or playing with the Fish. Of course, I can see Lauridson, Beaupre and Stollery getting some playing time with the Fish if there are some standout free agents that sign tryout contracts with LE (like Goers did in the past)

Someone had made some good FW lines a few pages back (or even top of page) after which some discussion ensued about e.g. Carey's and Smith's place in the team.

EDIT: Sorry, it was actually in another thread completely.

the way stollery has played for the monsters he's going to have to play his way off the team to not be considered a top 6 guy on the team.

Certainly the way he ended the season yes.

Forgot about Holden and Guenin. If we're looking at them as locks to make the team, Stollery would play over Lauridsen. Stollery was regularly the team's best defenseman last season, especially when they were without Barrie and Elliott for long stretches. By no means is he flashy, and he's probably a 6th/7th D at best at the NHL level, but he was very consistent and reliable in the games that I saw. I went to probably 20 games.

In fact, if there were multiple injuries or if Elliott was hurt, it wouldn't shock me to see Stollery get the call over Holden/Guenin.

I like Lauridsen and I'd hate to see him scratched or sent down, but he'd be the likely casualty of the numbers game. Beaupre and Siemens have a higher ceiling than Lauridsen, so their development would take precedence.

It's nice that the Monsters have options and should have some better depth this season. The injuries to Colorado's D really hurt Lake Erie at times last season. They should be better equipped to handle that this year.

Assuming Elliott earns a spot in the NHL like I think that he will:

Siemens-Stollery
Holden-Guenin
Beaupre-Lauridsen
Tam

Assuming Elliott is sent back to Lake Erie:

Siemens-Elliott
Holden-Stollery
Beaupre/Lauridsen-Guenin
Laurdisen/Beaupre
Tam (in CHL)

I'm getting Cohen-Shattenkirk ptsd here. Not because I expect it, because I'm terrified I won't be able to handle how bad our defense would be if it does happen.

If that's our bottom pairing in 2014-15, I think we'll be in pretty ok shape.

I hope you're only half right.
