Indeed. Its all good here. I knew what I was getting into when I responded. Hahaha
But, Im still not seeing it. If we had a 4th lune spot for him to work for, ok. But discussions of 3rw for a guy who has doesnt have thw upside of other prospects, is not appealing to me. We gone down that rabbit hole all to often. Id much rather see a proven NHL'r than a guy whos only positive attribute is hes good 5on5. Im not even suree where that stat come from, fantasy hockey?
I think this sends a good sign to anyone playing in the AHL and specifically to a guy like NAK he didn't get PP time and it went to others but he was a good soldier and took the minutes he was given and made something positive out of it.
And that is what sends a good message not everyone can play on the PP but that doesn't mean you can take your role and play it to the best of your abilities.
Just put your nose down and go to work the rest will handle itself...and that is
It just makes sense to play the prospects you developed, especially if you can't bring them up and down from the AHL to NHL anymore.
We played Lehtera and Weise and they didn't really amount to much during the season, if N.AK wasn't a positive at 5 on 5, I could see the hesitation in bringing up a player like that, but he is a positive force and helps in cost control as oppose to bringing in someone and blowing over a million AAV for someone we have as a prospect that should be better or ju
