The AHL team has some serious talent coming in next season

Recommended Posts

If the AHL team, wherever it will be or if it will be, will have some serious talent influx at the end of next season.

 

Suzuki, Bokk, Rees, Sellgren, Murray, Drury?, Puistola, and Honka to the team.  Bokk, Sellgren and Puistola could join the AHL squad this coming season if they wanted but it isnt sure at this point if they will.

 

If the AHL can string together a decent year to be in a playoff spot then this inject of youth and talent could push them over the edge.

 

Bokk-Bishop-Mattheos

Rees-D. Cotton-Smallman

Lorentz-Suzuki-Cotton

Puistola-Murray-Tieksola?Drury?Killenen?

 

Sellgren-McKeown

Forsling-Keane

?-Honka

That is a solid group past March of next season or whenever. Got the possibility of adding another European or two to the group if that is who we draft in the first couple of rounds in the draft

Seems like somethings got to give with McKeown. I know he's still an RFA with arbitration rights, but if he hasn't got a realistic chance with the Canes seems like it would be almost sadistic to not let him go a shallower team where he has a shot. Pesce and Dougie on the right side, don't see us re-signing TVR, but Fleury has seemingly gained a lot of trust with RB, and hasn't he been just as effective on his offside?  Then you've got Kaski and Keane competing for a RD spot out of Charlotte/Chicago.

Kaski has signed a deal to go back to Europe. McKeown may or may not stick around.  If not, we can replace his name with a veteran AHLer

It is going to become increasingly interesting to see which of these several high upside guys pops up and breaks out. We have a lot of candidates for that. 

 

I remain hopeful that we can lure Drury away from Harvard sooner than later. Once a guy finishes his junior year, waiting one more year to call your shot is pretty tempting. Just ask another Harvard grad Adam Fox. Drury's numbers at Harvard have been impressive, especially for a two way guy. 

 

We need, IMO to get Jake Bean on the big club next year. We will need to move out some contract for that, cough*Gardiner*cough.

 

McKeown is just in the wrong system. That is a guy who really should move on if he can to a team that doesn't have one of the deepest defenses and prospects. I feel bad for him, he deserves a shot, but just hard to see him getting it here.

The upcoming keys for these players:

Suzuki- get stronger and stay healthy

Rees: no suspensions (dark horse roster challenger)

Bokk: keeping up the confidence

Cotton: how ready is he? He is a realistic 4C candidate 

Keane: making sure his D positioning is strong. 
 

Those 5 have a real shot at being on the roster within 2 seasons. Keane, Cotton, and Bokk are next season possibles.
