CJ Smith recalled from Rochester

Recommended Posts

Finally! Hopefully he provides some scoring punch to help the middle 6 lines and keep us from being a 1 line team.

Who do we think loses playing time as a result?

Yes finally.

I would have liked him to have practiced with the team before his first game. I don't understand the last minute call up since this has been an obvious need for some time.  

I just hope he is given enough of a chance to find the best combinations for that 2nd line

Housley will sit him unless someone gets injured in warmup.

Maybe he gets in over Ellie, but I think you're most likely right.  he's a warm body in case someone can't go, hence the last minute call up.

Well, that changes everything.

And if Eichel doesn't go, my interest in the game goes with him.  What a hot mess that would be.

Wow come to think about it we have no center depth.  Center needs to be a priority in the draft.  

Center needs to be the priority in trade talks.  Otherwise we're looking at center depth in 3-5 years.  Hopefully Casey has it turned around before then.....

Exact opposite for me. Very interested to find out what kind of a team shows up without their captain.

Maybe I don't want to know.

It seems most likely that Elie will sit for CJ, which is fine, although I'd be perfectly happy sitting any of Sheary, Mitts, KO or Pommer, and I could be easily talked into sitting ERod or TT.

I think this team is mostly a pile of hot garbage without Eichel. Unless Reino unvails a new acumen for playing the pivot in the NHL.

Which, when combined with Larsson & Okposo makes for arguably the 2nd line.

Hope Eichel can play tonight.

Turned what around? Being a 20yr old who was playing hs hockey 2 years ago? Yea casey better get on that. Almost like rookies don't all come in at a young age and light up the league.

Anyone interested in Duchene as 2C next year ? 

As is with everything, what's the price?  Teams seem to get worse with him in their fold.

Unbunch your Garanimals. That's exactly what I mean.  He's got alot of growing as a player to do, and before he gets there we need another center.

Not sure why ERod would sit.  He's been one of the best bottom 6ers for us, along with Larry.

I thought that was ROR.

They're both cancerous.

Is it just me, or does he look about 14 years old?

Every Sabre minus Bogo looks about 14 to me.
