Go get a House, Boys

Recommended Posts

On HNIC, Scott Burnside just said that Olofsson and Jokiharju were told by Botterill "to go get a house, you're staying for a while."


Good for them, they've both been solid.

Well, that sets up a very interesting situation on the RHD scenario. Once Montour and Bogosain return I can't see 2 of them sitting in the press box. Throw in the Risto rumors and it looks like Botterill has a couple of highly coveted trade chips.

Hello? Winnipeg? Hello?

He's been great.    Don't notice him too much out there, which means he's playing well.... he plays like a veteran and he's still only 20.

Still can't believe they got him for Nylander.   What a steal.

He and Scandella got the most defensive zone starts yesterday

Yup, he's played great. I just didn't think Botterill would tip his hand about the right d situation so soon.

 Yeah, not sure I trust the source on that one.   Seems like an odd thing to tell somebody outside the organization... and there have been very few leaks under JBOT.

It definitely seems like somebody will be getting moved should Bogosian ever be ready to play again. 

Even when Montour is ready to go, it'll be interesting to see who comes out of their lineup.  Jokiharju seemed like he'd be a target to go down if he'd be the guy coming out of the lineup.  But if he's here for the duration, something else would have to be happening.

The trade to improve the forwards makes sense, but maybe they just slide somebody to the left side and sit Scandella.

This could also mean that Montour, Pilut and Bogo aren’t even close to being ready.  

 

 

Yeah, I was thinking maybe someone had a setback.

On The Instigators yesterday Rivet said Bogosian had a hiccup and wasn’t close to returning.

From his appearance yesterday. 
 

I doubt he plays this year 

I don't understand why he's not on LTIR yet. Is Botterill just trying to keep other GMs guessing?

Because there's no benefit to having that designation until they need the cap space.

Maybe. But there's also no reason not to do it.

Not sure where I heard it but it was said that Bogo had some setbacks over the summer. I also thought he was playing in a summer league, so I'm not real sure how much truth to it.

After he's actually been out 10 games, then that is correct.  Prior to that, having him designated LTIR prevent him from returning until 10 games have been played should he have a miraculous recovery one morning.

Would guess that part of the decision to not designate him as such is Bogosian himself probably doesn't want the designation.  Considering they don't need the space yet, no harm in not designating him.

It was also telling with 6 minutes left in the 3rd when Mitts, VO, E-Rod and Dahlin were stapled to the bench, Jokiharju was playing a regular shift with Scandella.

Meanwhile, back in Chicago....Alex Nylander was a healthy scratch after just two games.  Has the bubble already burst with his fresh new start?

Maybe so.  If they send him to Rockford, I think he'll be in Sweden next year for good.

Love that show.  I even posted a pic of his car in the Auto Club group.

Bogosian simply isn't returning. They don't have the cap space for him and likely he will just stay on long term IR to finish out his days as a Sabre.
