  1. I think it depends on his 2+ months in the SHL. if he can come out and play like bokk post WJC, he has a shot to make the roster. If its before WJC Bokk, we probably see him stay in Sweden, if preferred, or go to Chicago.
  2. Since we may not start until January, we’ll probably see a 45-50 game schedule then playoffs. Granted its based on fans being allowed.
  3. Yes he will have to clear waivers to go down much like Forsberg last season.
  4. It’ll be interesting. Players will want to play as many games as possible to earn as much pay as they can and at the same time not take years off their career.
  5. We can’t creep into the Olympics. So that will force us into a regular schedule the following season. They plan to cram as many games as they can between January and April with playoffs is the assumed plan. Carrying 22-23 players will be a necessity. They will be playing so often guys will need to rotate out.
  6. Sorry. I can’t count. Bokk maybe. I guess we count Lorentz as the 7th.
  7. This is the down and dirty of the situation. Waddell said Chicago is different in that they will help foot some of the bill of AHL veterans (who I would presume is our preferred call up targets). This idea is beneficial to us in a few ways. 1. we can leave prospects in Europe longer before bringing them over and starting their ELCs (also no transfer fees!), cheaper for us with veterans, prospects in Chicago have some mentors, and we arent wasting precious development time being an extra / 8 minute TOI, 12th forward in Raleigh. We will see a very heavy veteran team this season because we have 7 prospects in Bean, Keane, Ned, David Cotton, Smallman and Mattheos in the AHL. That is it. Prospects will begin flooding the scene this coming April / whenever the CHL and Euro leagues end with Suzuki, Rees, Bokk, Sellgren, etc coming in to join the AHL affiliate. I think we will see a Chicago roster in 21-22 that is at least 10 prospects deep.
  8. Its flipped. The FO wants Svech locked up long term but I don’t think we will offer the money to entice him. So, he is going to want a bridge deal to bet on himself. A three year bridge makes the most sense but the timing of the contract doesn’t. Unless we sign to a 3 year with full commitment that we extend him before his 3rd year is over. Or committed to extending Aho / Turbo before their are up.
  9. They said December 4th but folks have speculated it will get pushed into January
  10. We can bring European folks that are on loan without a transfer fee. I doubt that anyone is brought over until camp is known. AHL probably gets pushed back as well.
  11. Sign Devin Shore to a 1 year, 2 way deal. A former Panthers 2nd round pick from 2009. He played in the KHL and Swiss league for the last 3 seasons.
  12. Nordstrom was always a great 4th line player and good to watch. Too bad we asked him to play more than that.
  13. Couple of interviews with Bokk with him being transferred to SHL (his previous league) He has gotten about 6 minutes of ice time in his first two games. That could be expected with him joining them just 2 weeks ago. He is getting scoring chances. Some points: He fully expects to be in Carolina's camp and wants to play in the NHL this season. He understands that he is on loan and that it is best for him to keep playing. Coaches are asking him to take control of the puck and create. He was training with the German national team before coming to Sweden. Germany has a worse situation with COVID and never trained with the whole team. He is working on driving the net harder and becoming stronger with the puck. one of the Bokk interviews
  14. I think we’ll see a 2 year bridge for Svech. I don’t think the front office wants to pay a winger more than their franchise center. So, Svech will bet on himself and want a bridge deal. 2 year makes the most sense for the organization. Gardiner’s and Staal’s contracts will be done at the same time, it will be before Aho’s & Turbo’s deals are up, will save enough for us to fix our contracts before giving him big money, and we will have control of him through 31 years of age, his best years.
  15. a zoomed in look at the hit, I like. one of the big hits for Nikishin. Teams stayed away from drafting him because of his condition but he was a 1st/2nd round talent. We’ll see how it works out. his goal and hit
  16. Yes 4, finally cleared. Goal, a couple of highlight hits.
  17. Winnipeg would block our number. Gardiner isnt worth a buyout but he has very little value. Winnipeg is wanting Pesce and Necas for a return.
  18. If the main reason that Laine wants out of Winnipeg is because he is not getting first line time then he will not be a match here in Carolina. Rod requires you to earn it and if Laine doesnt earn a top line spot, he wont get it. He'll be an issue here too.
  19. yep. Expecting an above PPG performance from him being over 18 and playing with a bunch of young fellows and the Q is the worst of the 3 for defense.
  20. Ponomaryov has 2 goals and an assist in 4 games so far.
  21. Update: SHL/affiliates Bokk was transferred to the SHL from the DEL. DEL starts in two weeks but the SHL team isnt good. Maybe Bokk will get plenty of ice time but he may not put up a bunch of points. He didnt score in his 1st game Nybeck was transferred to the J20 team and have 4 goals and 2 assists in his 3 games there. He seems to be in a weird spot where he is too good for U20 but not quite good enough to get adequate minutes in the SHL. Granted HV71 is typically a pretty strong squad. Sellgren continues to push offense in his good minutes in the SHL. 6 assists in 8 games, +3 rating Drury is have bumped to 1st line center on his SHL team. he has 4 assists in 8 games. Gunler is getting scants minutes as well and has a goal and an assist in 8 games. Liiga / affiliates Tieksola is in the Finish version of J20 (U20) and has 2 goals and 1 assist in 3 games. Puistola has 2 goals in his scant minutes in 6 games for JYP. Makiniemi finally got another start but it didnt go well. 5 goals on 34 shots. Honka is getting a lot of ice time and make us of it. 1 goal, 3 assists in 6 games with a +3 rating. KHL / affiliates Slepets has 2 goals in 5 games in the VHL Pashin has not scored in his 2 games in the VHL Kochetkov hasnt played in quite some time. side note: Kaski is tearing up the KHL with 5 goals and 6 assists in 18 games. I wonder if he gets another shot here in 21-22.
  22. signed three AHL players today: Bracco from Toronto Gust who was in Charlotte last year Rempal from the Kings.
  23. i hope we arent lured by the idea of hooking the big fish. I want to avoid Laine.
