I think you mean 10 pim.

Aulie usually takes a lot of time to get his gloves off, lucky for whoever was getting tough with him last night.

Unluckily for Condra, imo. He started laying the hits on Condra with those bricks on his fists.

I think we've got a decent amount of enforcers/backbone in our line-up now between Malone, Thompson, Aulie, Crombeen, Hall, Vinny and Hedman. Would be nice to add one more to our third line, aka Brown when his collarbone is fully recovered.

If the gloves came off sooner and punches were thrown, the linesman may very well have let them go.

You're right, I meant to say 5 minor penalties (=10 PIM).

There really was no point at such a late stage in the game. The linesman was right to break it up and just let the game play out for the final 10 seconds.

I know, and Condra is probably better off because of it.

If Hedman is an enforcer the Bolts are in trouble

It would really depend on what Purcell would bring back. I wouldn't want to trade him unless an offer we couldn't refuse came our way. He's just like Stammer right now (I hope). Shaking the rust off.

We have several bottom 6 centers in the system, no need to add McNeill. We need Stamkos to work on his faceoffs instead of his one timer and playing with his dad.

Another thing with Purcell is we have plenty of cover for him in the system. Connolly, Panik and Kucherov are more talented as nd younger. We need a LW with Malones size and grit but more talent. I just don't see him moved until the offseason, we need him this year and hopefully he picks up his game.

I#ve only seen the NHl highlights, but at least 2 big problems because of Lee, sorry thats to much.
I would really like to see 6-4 wins all the time, it's much more fun to watch then a 2-1 Offensive hockey is the most entertaining hockey.

Purcell: What about trading him and Lee for Subban? Maybe add prospect or a pick somewhere. Well I know it's not gonna happen, but I would do this trade. Just think about a top-4 like Hedman-Salo and Carle-Subban with Brewer coming up for injurys

If we don't make the playoffs, either Malone or Purcell will be gone. Thwy are owrth to much on TD to pass over a trade. And I can really see Killorn becoming Malone 2.0 well and replacing Teddy shouldn't be that much of a problem with those guys in Syracuse.

I'm starting to wonder who of the SYR guys might be the poor guy, who will not get a chance, because IF they all develop as fast as now we can't bring them all up in the next 2 years. I simply can't see all the Connollys Paniks Browns and.... on the 3rd line, eventough I would love to play 9 top-6 guys, would even be unreal firepower by our standarts

I doubt Purcell leaves unless Connolly or someone takes his spot next year. Even though he is a hot/cold player he is still a top 6 forward which we need. He doesnt take over games but he helps his linemates most nights. We dont need him to find the scoresheet every night, just to help create some offense.


I think we need a 3rd line center, and another top 6 winger. Both of those are somewhere in the system, we just need some time. Killhorn/Namestnikov/etc and then Connolly/J.T. Brown/Panik. All of those guys could earn spots here soon with some development, no need to rush to a trade IMO

If you read carefully, you'd see that some are enforcers some have what I like to call "backbone". Hedman falls into the latter category.

We don't have one capable of logging serious minutes. Pyatt is awful on the draw, while Thompson and Hall are both fourth liners.

Lol one of the top 20 defensemen in the league for Purcell, Lee and a throw-in prospect or pick? You'd have to add considerably more!

Can we stop referring to Killorn as a Ryan Malone replacement? He isn't.

I'm really not understanding people wanting to trade Malone or Purcell right now...

As long as we continue to do well this season I don't see a need to move anybody. Right now this team is doing just fine aside from 2nd periods.

Another poster was just musing and asked what would be a suitable return for Purcell. I don't think any of us were serious about trading any of our players right now. In a shortened season, I don't think any trades are necessary and we can wait until next year (re: Purcell) when Connolly should be ready for the bigs.

I haven't seen much of Killorn so I don't know who to compare him to, from what I heard he sounds like a really good two way center with ok size who plays a physical game. What do you see him as?
I don't want to trade either this year because I see us making a playoff run. I just think Purcell is to hot/cold and we have replacements so I wouldn't mind getting good value for him if we can.
Malone is more valuable to us than what we'd get for him. I just think a lot of people want to get maximum value for a player before the retire or decline like you can in a video game.

Yeah, but why even consider trading Purcell at all? There is nothing wrong with having top 6 talent in the bottom 6, and we don't have any glaring holes to fill.

Basically what you just said, although he might play winger instead of center in the NHL. He's smaller than Malone and doesn't have the fighting element to his game like Malone does. If anything, he's like a more physical version of Purcell (with less natural offensive talent).

What is "good value" for Purcell though? Would trading him improve the team at all? I doubt it. (same for Malone)

On the Killorn thing. I think he has more playmaking ability and better vision than Purcell. His release isn't as quick as Teddy's, but his shot is damn good really. Cooper put him on a line with Angelidis and Wyman and it became a scoring line. Was crazy to watch actually. Grinders + Killorn = 2nd line for any other team in the AHL.

I don't think so. Killorn is real good in that regard for sure, but Purcell is a notch above him IMO. (at least at this point anyways).

Let's assume we have a bunch of guys ready to make the jump next year, is having the following lines a bad thing?

Connolly // Stamkos // St. Louis
Conacher // Lecavalier // Purcell
Pouliot // Killorn // Malone
Pyatt // Thompson // Crombeen
Hall

Hedman // Salo
Carle // Brewer
Aulie // Gudas (for the love of god, yes plz to this pairing)
