If there were no problems with Waivers, I'd bring up Connolly.
He, along with Kadri and MacArthur made quite an effective line last year, albiet for a short period of time(what we need here).
As an added bonus, he also owns the Hurricanes in his Career.
I also wouldn't be against calling up Gardiner to play on the wing with Kadri, just to get him back into the NHL and the NHL speed. Worked with Kaberle a few years ago, ironically, also against the canes lol.
I would consider bringing up Connolly as a temp replacement. Even if we did loose him on waivers Oh well or do the Leafs consider that bridge burnt?
Unlike the tank morons, I am looking to see how the team does without its #1 goalie, 2 of its top forwards and Gunnar... this is serious character building stuff. If they can stay afloat and be still in the race after this, we might have something here.
I was feeling pretty bad about all of our injuries and then Karlsson happened...felt bad...and then the news on his injury popped up. I felt good about our team..
I feel as thought Frattin isn't THAT much of big deal to lose. He is doing great and is arguably one our best players thus far, but without Kadri centering him or getting lucky bounces he wouldn't have as many points as he has. Kessel gets chance after chance and is trying to make things happen... Frattin just gets easy bounces. So I wouldn't look too much in it. I'm going to get ****ed by you guys so im sorry in advance.
