Between COVID and visa issues, neither of the newbies will suit up.  Risto is out with UBI. So:

 

Giroux-Coots-TK

Farabee-Bressard-Atkinson

Lindblom-Laughton-JVR

Max Willman-Thompson-NAK

 

Ellis-Provorov

Sanheim-Braun

Yandle-Seeler

 

Hart

 

LGF!

True, but my bigger concern is the mindset and overall game of Carter Hart. He HAS to be better.

And the Sabres beat the Canadians 5-1.   This is why we don't get all crazy about one game. 😄

I, for one,  am focused on this season.   As was pointed out they had two barely serviceable AHLers filling in last night.   That's not because Frost "sucks" as much as it is it is better for him to be playing the offensive role he is suited for than the bottom six mucker role they had "good story" and "who?" In.   With Ristolainen out we were told that meant more of Braun  That's a loss from the jump. Braun is a barely serviceable NHL player at this point.  

Fordyce and Hall think York will be a regular by mid-season due to need and Braun's aging. Hayes' return will bring more shuffling. I suspect the squad on Black Friday will have different faces.

Sorry, strictly unintentional. 

 

BTW, this season is critical for AV and CF.  I would say non-playoff ends their tenures. The same may hold for a first round exit.

Not making the playoffs is a death knell for them, sure. But a "hard fought" loss in the first round to a "Cup Finalist" would be a good sign*.

 

 

* it's not going to be a good sign. This team needs to get past Round One.

It is critical for AV, most certainly. I think Chuckles has a bit more time, if simply for the reason that his dad is good friends with Robert Earle Clarke.

That may be better than Robert Esche....shoot, maybe he could suit up if our tandem has problems.
