Adams

Letang
Despres

Orpik
Martin

Nisky
Engo

Bort
Lovejoy (are we really going to carry 8?)

I say Shero trades LOVEJOY or Bortuzzo. Engelland is too solid and Niskanen is solid as well.

No way in hell is Adams the 13th forward. Come on Chancellor, you're better than that.

Hopefully Bennett's the first call up and we get to see him later in the year but for now lets hope he keeps performing well in the AHL.

Any interest in Redden now that the Rangers dumped him?

Unless we are dumping some of the defense for picks, I would say no.

...why? We already have too many 6/7 defenders as it is.

Just to see IHWR's reaction, then cut him loose.

You are right but the 6/7 we have are so young at least Redden is a veteran and wouldn't have to trade for him.

And those youngsters will never get to be veterans if we keep pushing them out of the picture.

True good point you think Redden is a wash? He was really good with Chara on the Sens awhile back.

He was never paired with Chara in Ottawa, you can go ask Sens fans. It was Chara and Phillips

Thats the way I wrote it up last night too. I really don't think Bylsma has it in him though to sit Adams

That was forever ago in hockey terms. Redden has been a mediocrity in the AHL for a couple years after being a sieve in the NHL. Anyone signing him would be signing him to be a spare defender/injury replacement. We don't need that.

You can't even make the argument that at least he's game ready considering the Rangers told him to stay out of Connecticut this year too. So what you have is a 35 year-old defender coming off a lousy year in the AHL who hasn't played a game or practiced with a team in 9 months.

Thunder Bay produces solid hockey players. Maybe not always flashy, but solid, hardworking, and get the job done.

Marc Staal, Jordan Staal, Eric Staal, Patrick Sharp, Ryan Johnson, Greg Johnson, Norm McIver, Trevor Letowski, Tom and Taylor Pyatt.
That's just a handful, and they are all hardworking, effective players.

Bortuzzo will be a great bottom pairing dman. He's what we need. Big, strong, long reach, takes up space and can be that crease clearer we need. Think a mobile Hal Gill down the road.

Do people realize that Tangradi would get snatched up on waivers in a second? It came down to contracts & Bennett isn't waiver eligible. It would out right stupid to lose Tangradi for nothing. Especially if he does turn into a Malone type player & we lose him because we were impatient.

First forward injury Bennett will probably be up.
