There is no one on this planet who could replace him, but I could see Kalinski given the chance to try.

Probably Powe, but honestly, nobody replaces Lappy.

Nodl is about as helpful as Cote. It's probably gonna be Kalinski.

I'm really curious to see what the lines will be.

Nodl is less useful than cote, because at least cote can absorb like 50 punches to the head before he blacks out. i dont see nodl being able to take that punishment.


hopefully kalinski is willing to throw himself in front of pucks

Since this deal a big blow to the PK does this mean that Hartnell needs to be stapled the bench so he can't take stupid penalties?

I'd be shocked if Kalinski doesn't get a shot now.

If its Boston imo:
Maroon, Kalinski, Leino for Lappy, Gagne, Carter

If its Washington imo:
Kalinski, Leino, Bartulis/Syrvet for Lappy, Gagne, Carter

I'd break expensive things if Cote sniffs the ice in the playoffs...

Kalinski. They're the same player, except Kalinski lacks the veteran instincts and hockey IQ Lappy has.

I'm sorry but they are not close to the same player.

I don't think Kalinski gets called up, even though I disagree with the move.

Yeah, they really aren't. Just because they may fill a similar role doesn't make them the same player. Kalinski's a much better skater, and has surprisingly decent hands. I don't know how well Kalinski can handle himself on the PK(I'm betting he's pretty good at it), but I can guarantee that's what will really set Lappy apart from him, as that's what sets him apart from most players in the league.

Honestly, if it weren't for Lappy's PK contributions(well, his vet presence is worth noting too)...he'd have been the guy I would have been sitting throughout this year when we had 13 healthy forwards at times. Rather than having discussions about whether to scratch Asham or Powe, I'd have been scratching Lappy. He doesn't have very good hands and provides about as little offense as anyone on the team. He's generally not as good of an option as other guys to move around the line-up if necessary. He plays in an energy/checking role, yet he's not exactly a fast or particularly good skater. He's certainly a smart player and reliable defensively, but he just doesn't bring the speed, energy, and ability to really get in on the forecheck and bang bodies the way I like to see 4th liners do. He does a good enough job...I just don't think his contributions in his role at even strength are ideal. I like guys more like Powe and Kalinski for that role. It's a pretty simple issue...the big thing for me is just being a very tenacious and physical, speedyass mother****ing ball of energy out there...and let's face it, that's not exactly what Lappy is. He's got the physical part down, but lacks in the speed category. And this isn't any kind of attempt to bash Laperriere either...bear in mind, he's pretty much my favorite player.

Legein has been mentioned as well. Dare we actually do it:

Carcillo - Richards - JvR
Hartnell - Briere - Leino
Legein - Giroux - Asham
Powe - Betts - Kalinski

Have a little faith

Though this does feel like 2003 all over again, only instead of a lack of defenseman, it's our forwards crumbling. Is it time to convert Danny Syvret to a winger?
