I have to think that Boikov's growth has pushed Geertsen out of their plans.

Indeed. At some point there are only so many spots on the big club for bottom pair defensemen. Once enough prospects leapfrog you, you really don't have much of a path to the major leagues. This was his year to take a step forward. He didn't, and Boikov and Lindholm did. He'll be a valuable AHL defenseman for a while, like Siemens, and then we'll move on.

You're not wrong, but that's what has the best chance of happening. Geertsen still probably has some NHL potential as a lower end defender, but good chance it won't be with us.

I feel like he always had a 3rd pairing ceiling. He was always in ridiculous shape for training camp so his tires got pumped a little too full at times. He's definitely a project that is likely to get passed over if other guys are having success faster than him.

I'd imagine EJ, Zads, Barrie, Lindy, Bigras, Mironov (when he signs) are all firmly ahead of him and Meloche will be sooner than later. He has plenty of time to work on things behind them if the org and he stick it out. I'd put Siemens ahead of him too but who knows what's going on there between him and the Avs.

Geertsen had a good last year in junior, looked like his tools were coming together. For whatever reason he just hasn't picked up the pro game fast enough.

anyone else watching UND-BU? Jost's showing off his hands but he's also getting knocked over by bigger dudes pretty often

Yeah, he's standing out in a game with a lot of skilled players. Those hits are penalties most of the time.

I'm watching. Looks like we're going to get to sign Jost sooner rather than later

Can't wait to see Jost suit up for 10 minutes a night with Mitchell and Comeau. Need that veteran leader in Comeau to help bring him along.

Don't worry, he'll be suiting up to play next to Greer in San Antonio for a few more weeks.

Not very fair to Bawston having to play at NoDak as the higher seed. Oh well, great game!

A Jost signing will have to wait.

Apparently Craig Wolanin's kid is pretty good.
