Random question...why is Jake Gardiner in the AHL?

Wasn't he supposed to be 'the next one' according to many Leafs fans and media?

Not sure but the conspiracy theorist on the leafs board seem to think Carlyle isn't crazy about him.

Granlund really wasn't fitting with the Wild's style of play this year, which has been physical and defense first. He was a very good two way player when he left Finland but he was playing on the third line (if at all) for the Wild and clearly wasn't yet up to the pace and physicality of the NHL grinding game. And most importantly, the team has been winning without him.

He should be fine.

That was last year, this year is all about Kadri, just as next year will be about Reilly.

He had a bad concussion and struggled when he came back so they sent him back down. Maybe part of the learning process, his defense needs work for sure.

Good thing Rask is a RFA, expect him to get a big fat raise with his numbers this year. He should get a contract similar to Price's. Bye bye cap room for Bruins.

They have 7.2 in cap space right now and Horton + Ference are off the books for another 7.25 million

Also Savard still counts against their cap at the moment, they'll put him on LTIR and get an extra 4 million. They will be fine

17 game 'conditioning stint' for Gardiner. Right.

They can't afford for him next year, don't worry. Seguin, Marchand and Lucic all have extensions that kick in next season, extensions which represent like 6 M more total than their current cap hits. The room they have now under this year's cap will go towards those extensions. Savard's money will go on LTIR to fit under the new 64.3 M cap.

They are most likely losing Horton already and will only have around 2-3 M to replace him at most. CP is right, Rask is definitely going to get paid, probably at least 5 M per year on the cap, hopefully more since he's a year away from UFA status.

As for Gardiner, apparently he's down to his last 3 NHL games or so before he becomes waiver eligible, so that may be another reason why he's still down. Once he's up, he has to stay up for good. They are also already sitting a similar player to Gardiner in terms of style (Liles) while playing Kostka/Fraser/Holzer instead, so clearly Carlyle does not see the rush to add another PMD.

Kind of dumb. He was on waivers, what, two weeks ago?

Already 2-0 Bruins over the Pens.

It seems like the only teams in the East who don't crap their pants when facing the Bruins are the Habs and Capitals.

Oh and the Sabres too.

I wonder how many of those 11 points in the last 5 games Letang would have without Crosby.
