Ithink given a true chance to do what he does best that is generate offence. He could be another Steve Sullivan but a team has to give him a chance not said him down he needs a look of at least 40 to 60 games. Will the Preds do that I don't know, St louis and Sullivan both took a while to come along because until they have a fair shot you will never know. My guess is if he gin=ven 40 to 60 games he won't look back in 5 season 70 pts.

i truly think gamache could make an impact....that is IF he could get time on an offensive oriented line....the problem with the predator situation is there's no room on any of the top three lines to give a young wing a shot...(kariya-walker, erat-sullivan, hartnell-hall, and then guys like upshall-shishkanov-radulov pushing down the road).. that's the problem gamache faces with the preds,numbers and therefore an opportunity to show what he can do

The only real chance I'll think he'll get on a scoringline is if Trotz decides to put him at center. I'd give him a shot there. His game is more suited for the center position, IMO.

He would have a hard time with the defensive aspect of what Trotz expects from his centers. Also we have too many small guys already, we don't need to get any smaller.

I really wish we could turn this guy into a center. He may not have the size we want in our much-needed center, but has some play-making ability and is no hack on defense. It would allow him to get more playing time, and help us fill a void. But, when you toy with someones position, it could totally throw him out of wack. I'd still like to somehow get him in the lineup, somewhere in the top three lines for sure, if not top two at one point or another.

announced in the local paper this morning that gamache,smithson and fiddler had all renogiatated their minor league contract figures of their contracts down to 75K... of course this gives them the ability to be called up and not have to clear waivers under the new waiver "call-up" rules

Any less than I would Greg Johnson? But that is why I made the comment afterwards saying that he is a little small for that role.

He's one of our prospects. Lead our minor league team in scoring last year and was top 5 in the minors for scoring as well. Only knock on him is that he's small and slow.

I agree. Give him a shot... if there proves to be no room for him trade the guy (like Calgary did with Martin St. Louis) so at least he gets his chance. He's got nothing else to prove in the AHL.

Maybe the Blues would be interested as they have next to no scoring behing Tkachuk and Weight as well as no room under the cap for a proven scorer. A conditional pick is fair IMO.

"here you go, division rival that we could be competing with for a playoff spot. give us a no-risk draft pick, and you might be rewarded with a dynamic scorer that could help push you over the edge!"


proooobably not.
