Yup. Had to be qualified for Syracuse's roster by the TDL and, as far as I know, he wasn't.
As Malone gets involved again, and with Pyatt playing out of his mind, I think we might see Kucherov scratched more and more as we get into the intense late-season games. That's sad. I would love to see him get a shot at a real scoring role, maybe with Stamkos, once his confidence returns.
Maybe it's time to change your main team and username.
Can I change my username? I've been a bad boy because was devestated over the Callahan trade, and did not take it well, especially with the ranger fans bashing him so threw some punches. But looking to turn a corner now, and like I said have a house south of Tampa, am a Dolphins fan for over 25 years, so I already have one foot in there. lol. I will be upset if he goes to Buffalo with no chance to win.
I really enjoy watching these Lightning games, and the Tampa Bay fans are awesome!
It's a good time to be a Tampa Bay fan. We have a boatload of promising rookies, so it's like getting in on the ground floor and watching these careers unfold. Some of them are real Cinderella stories.
The vibe is good. If I'd told you a year ago that within the next twelve months we'd fire a coach, buy out Vinny Lecavalier, Steven Stamkos was going to break his leg, and then we'd trade Marty St. Louis, and the vibe would STILL be good? You'd think I was crazy. But that's the situation we're in.
Says who? Everyone thought Connolly would be on the team to start the year especially after the camp and preseason he had. He was waiver exempt just like Kucherov will be next year.
If we don't move Purcell/Connolly/Panik/Brown it makes no sense to keep him up and either play him bottom 6 or scratch him. If the Killorn-Stamkos-Johnson line works, we resign Callahan that makes the top two lines set. We have Drouin needing minutes so Kucherov just becomes a victim of numbers.
