Hudon and Lindgren on waivers. Hudon needs another chance elsewhere. He might still be a productive player but he's not a fit here. Kinda slow.

Lindgren might still become a solid backup, but it just takes time for goalies. More time than the pre-waiver process allows.

I feel like I should start a new thread before this one collapses under its own weight, but what the hell: FUCK THIS TEAM 2019-2020 EDITION

Tatar-Danault-Gallagher
Lehkonen-Domi-Suzuki
Drouin-Kotkaniemi-Armia
Byron-Thompson-Weal
Cousins

Mete-Weber
Chiarot-Petry
Kulak-Fleury
Reilly, Folin

Prinkaid

So Nick and Cale make it, Poehling gets to heal his mushy melon in Laval. Le Titan...errr...Rocket are gonna be really fun to watch this year.

On paper, I think they're about where they were last season: competing for a playoff spot. They've got youth and legs on their side, and Kinkaid already looks like a major upgrade in nets so CJ won't be afraid to give Price more nights off. That said, they still don't have a working powerplay and they're not elite up the middle...yet.

I like how lean the team is: no one really on the back end of their career, and the two old guys are still productive. There's no one who doesn't really fit the lineup, and while I still think they're missing high end talent, there's enough versatility and mobility with the lineup that guys can move up and down as needed.

It's really just a matter of whether the young guys are ready to lead. They might struggle big time if Kotkaniemi, Poehling and Suzuki aren't at least solid contributors.

Same with the defence: they're dependent on Mete improving and Kulak repeating. If they don't start fast, Bergevin might move quickly.

Even though it was solely because he got a concussion and missed camp, Ryan Poehling is mad he got sent down.

Bergevin said he won't be in Laval long.

Agreed, and wasn't this D supposed to be an upgrade over last year, not that this D is that much better.

We're two games in, so we'll give him time to adjust to the East, but Chiarot is definitely a step behind the competition so far. And he really can't move the puck at all. Crossing my fingers Bergy didn't buy another Alzner.

Kulak was brutal against Toronto and got benched. He was solid last season, but some pointed out cracks in his armour when competition got stiffer in March. CJ dropped him to the third pairing so he'll need to rebuild trust.

Yes we are only two games in, but I guess I too am worrying about another Alzner in Chiarot, but again, it's only two games.

Kulak I think will get better as the season progresses, especially as a third pairing.
