Thomas Hickey’s return from a suspected concussion is going slowly — he’s back to skating on his own after participating in group workouts last week — but when he does return, Trotz and Lamoriello have a real decision to make. Pelech was a healthy scratch on Saturday after a brutal game in Madison Square Garden two nights earlier; does he become the No. 7 and Sbisa the No. 8, with one of the extra forwards going on waivers or sent down? Would Sbisa be waived, with the likelihood that the Isles would simply terminate his deal since there’s no room in Bridgeport for another veteran?

Toews is here to stay and that’s all that matters. After Saturday’s performance Sbisa should just retire. He is done

Same guy who abused me when I said Cap lived in Garth's basement, Zuc having Severe head trauma after hit barely able to speak, JT's wife getting a job at hospital in Toronto, Martin was offered same contract he eventually took from Toronto by the Isles but thought he could do better.. ... is the same guy who laughs at that statement.. riot.

Yeah, but you paint a picture of the kid being an arrogant jerk who thinks he's smarter than everyone else. Niteislander says he's actually met him and that he's a nice kid who takes the time to sign autographs, etc. IMO, he sounds more like a space cadet than an arrogant jerk. A space cadet could also have "issues at every level" by virtue of his tendency to space out during team meetings or on the bench.

I'm curious to know how his teammates view him. Is he a locker room cancer? Or is he another Uncle Leo? I think it's time for some nugz...

- JohnScammo

No offense to niteislander but just because he met him and I’m guessing talked to him for a couple mins and he was nice doesn’t diminish what’s been going on with this kid since juniors. I mean I’m speculating on what everyone knows and drawing a conclusion obviously so I’m not saying I’m 100% right but if I were betting on this that’s where I’d put my money just from what we’ve seen/heard. Just an opinion. Believe me I hope it’s wrong love for the kid to work out we can use the help.

He did look good at times last year and held his own for the most part which was impressive considering he shouldn’t have been up there to begin with. Can’t wait to see what he’ll look like in camp next year. Maybe like Toews start in BP and then come up?

Fair enough. We need some more nugz to settle this one.

I thought he had others. I'm not sure and I can't find it quickly online. I wish one of the stat sites would include injury history.

- Vukota

Sbisa should be put on waivers to see if anyone bites (nobody will) and then placed on unconditional waivers for purpose of a buyout. There's absolutely no point in having him here anymore.

Toews forced their hand and now they're going to have to make some not-so-difficult decisions on how to handle Pelech/Sbisa. In the short-term Pelech needs to be the odd-man out, as far as the top-6 defensemen go, but in the long-term they gotta find a way to dump him. He's got two years left on his deal after this season and dedicating $1.6M in cap space to a 7th defenseman is a waste of money. You'd have to think someone out there would take a chance on him in a trade that was dirt-cheap.

I don't recall any but I'm not super confident in that, so it's entirely possible.

I’m not saying the kid was late again let the record state. I’m just saying he has an authority issue like not being able to take direction for whatever the reason. Wouldn’t surprise me if he were late again but I’m not saying that or backing it up with any BS. Signals get crossed on here too easily.

I guess I wouldn't be surprised if they kept Pelech @ his $1.6M cap hit for the last two years on his deal. They gave Sbisa $1.5M and he is a literal garbage can on skates. I just think that they could pay some washed-up vet $1M or less to take that role.

Just my opinion, but I think it would be a lot more prudent to clear out another body to start making way for the other talent in Bridgeport to get a shot.

To me Toews is no different now than in training camp. He belonged here then. When did Adam Pelech become this top 6 mainstay? Easy decision...
