1 player on a conditioning stint in the AHL (Ward)
How long is the maximum amount of time a player can be sent on a conditioning stint? I believe it's 7-12 days, but I could be wrong.
If Brisebois and Perreault come off the IR, then there's 24 players on the active roster. Someone would need to be moved.
It's been mentioned that Dykhuis was an emergency callup, and can be sent back down without passing waivers. Does anyone know if Dykhuis was indeed an emergency callup? Regardless, even if Dykhuis is sent down, there's still going to be 1 player too many when Ward is recalled.
Who goes? My guess is Audette, unless Perreault can be traded. I think Audette is finally done here. Dagenais seems to have found his fit with Ribeiro. He's certainly looking better there than either Audette or Perreault, and Julien seems to be confident in the Ribeiro-Dagenais trio.
With the way Gratton was used last night in taking important faceoffs, and playing the PK, it leads me to believe Julien's confident in Gratton's play and was 'showcasing' his abilities to Gainey, so they can see what they've got in Gratton. My guess is that his strong faceoff ability will make Perreault seem that much more expendable. Best guess is this is what happens:
why does cj keep putting rivet and the cube together all the time they are brutal together i dont understand.
because he was playing before with Markov , and Markov was playing brutal too.At least ,Julien is trying to build the confidence of Markov , who is playing better hockey since is not playing with Rivest '' the -9 ''
