Saw that, interesting move. Hopefully someone other then Barrie is scratched. Anyone else think that this might be a gambit by Sacco to keep his job? This could be him feeling pressure and needing to do something. Especially since Elliot was just injured and only played 1 game since becoming healthy.

Hopefully he plays tomorrow. Looking forward to seeing both Barrie and Elliott in the line up.

Not sure on that.

It could be that Sacco and the Avs had plans to recall Elliott and then he got injured, so they had to wait for him to get healthy?

I get the sense the Avs were more mad about not scoring on the PP that would've gotten them the lead at 5-4, than losing a 3 goal lead, LOL.

After playing just one game after returning from injury? Sacco must be really pissed. Hopefully he will play and not sit in the press box.

They should call up gaunce as well then trade away Orr'Brian and O'Byrne. Let the young guys get some experience since they probably are better than those 2 bums.

Sure, call up the kid who's had all of one game to recover from a serious knee injury.

Desperation move if there ever was one.

I think both Elliott and Barrie plays. Perhaps not tomorrow but Wednesday. I bet they want to see how it looks with two strong transition players there.

He has played 2 games since being injured. Not that 1 extra game is a huge difference.

I hate the timing of this move. Give Elliott some time to find his game in the AHL again. He just started to play again and he wasn't good before his injury this year. I like Elliott a lot and I think this isn't good for his development. As a Gaunce fan I'm also frustrated because Sacco seems to have forgotten he exists.

Yeah this is getting ridiculous at least Gaunce can play steady defence. I'd feel it's a slap in the face if Elliott got called up after just getting back from injury before I did if I were him.

But that's not my main concern. I don't know why we haven't yet waived one of our sucky dmen. At the moment, they all know that they can have a bad game, get scratched a few times, and then just get drawn back in. It was a mistake signing that many bottom pairing ones and worst to keep them all. Sherman's badly dropped the ball on the D.

I seem to remember someone, quite possibly even TPS himself, saying that Sacco doesn't think "too much" of Gaunce...which is strange because in his limited games he played I didn't think he did too badly last time around.

Actually he was starting to look good before his injury, think he had something like 8 points in the 14 games before his injury and was a + player in that span.

I dunno, I think this could be a good move.

Hopefully its a sign that if Elliott does well one of our boneheads on Defense will be shipped out.

Hope SOB sits for him.... Everyone rips on Obyrne but I think we still need him to help kill penalties with Hejda, and I hate SOB

Gaunce looked quite bad in many of the LEM games I saw during the lockout. I don't think he's NHL ready. He might never be.

He's pretty slow and seems to run around a lot in the defensive zone. Pretty much the last thing Avs need right now.

He wasn't noticeable the last time which was in 10-11. Which is a good thing because ROB/SOB/Hunwick/Zanon are constantly noticeable for the wrong reasons usually. I haven't seen a LEM game in over a month though but I've seen Gaunce play plenty since junior and I know he wasn't this bad even 3 years ago.

Why do I get this sinking feeling that Sacco is going to stick with his "veteran" bums and sit Barrie tomorrow for Elliot?

So, who gets benched? I'm hoping O'Byrne, but it won't be.

Hoping this is the beginning of the bottom Dmen purge. Trade deadline fire sale of O'Byrne, Hunwick, and Zanon. Any prospect/pick valued at 4th rnd or higher would make me happy. End the season with

EJ-Wilson
Hejda-Barrie
O'Brien-Elliot
Gaunce/Pock
