It pisses me off to think that one of those anchors that Lou signed may very well block this kid this season.

Some of the contract can go to Ahl and not hurt the club... a few others will only cost a couple mil on salary cap so i am not concerned with alot of the contracts this off season.. you play the best players.. i guess we will see if there is a culture change or not.. i sure can hope not betting on it

I agree. Lou talks about culture and he needs to back it up. Would be nice to find out about young talent like Bellows and Toews this year. This does not seem like a Cup or bust year.

I can think of alot more then a couple questionable contracts that pisses me off.... why in the world did we use a 1st round pick to protect our lineup during the expansion draft... I know i know we had just made it to the 2nd round but if we protect core could afford to let a fringe player go

Bellows doesn’t look out of place tonight. Toews needs to play with the big club there’s no reason for him to go to bridge at his age. He needs to develop at the nhl level at this point. One of the reasons signing hickey to me was short sighted for FOUR YEARS besides him being terrible.

I’m rooting for Bernier to make the team and Bellows to get sent down. 😃
Man there’s some worthless shat on this team that I can see making it hahahaha

Toews better make it. I’ll never understand Lou’s offseason moves and I doubt Einstein could.

Thanks. Just dug up an article from aug 23rd, at that point he hadn't skated in a while. That sucks. Hope he gets back soon so we can see what he's got.

He’ll be in Bridgeport it would be nice to have a goaltender work out for once. We can use it.

It's likely one of him or Aho (if not both unfortunately) will be watching from pressbox or in BPort. I say if things aren't looking so good after 10/15 games play the young guys. Things will prob not look good and they still will likely not get their chance to play but who knows...

I figure as much but still looking forward to see him play. Between him and Sorokin it's a big (frank)ing tease.

No doubt. Would be great if Greiss could get back to where he was a couple yrs ago too.

The way things are looking right now they may send him down past the ahl straight to 7’s world class talent league he’ll never come back from that.

Nelson with a weak shot, doesn't even come close ... if the guy would skate just once he wouldn't be such a pile. i hope we trade him before season starts

That makes sense. I can't see them not giving the vets a chance, and I won't flip out if the opening night roster leaves off a couple of the young guys. I also don't think it's terrible to tell a young player, "Nice camp. Now light up the AHL and you'll be back here in no time." But, yeah, if we're 10-15 games in and some coasting vet is still blocking a young guy who's tearing up the AHL because that vet is cool with Lou or whatever, then I'll start getting impatient.

He did and I think Toews earned a spot with his play tonight. At least I hope so.

Devon Toews logged 22:31, including 7:26 on the PP with an assist, a shot and three attempts blocked. Barry Trotz said defense prospect is "making a case" for himself.
By the way, ditto for Kieffer Bellows (goal in 11:02 with four shots).
