    I'm not sure he has ever received a pass cleanly. I know he can put the puck in the net at certain times. But don't get me wrong I still like Kule. Plays his role very well.

Then factor in how much Chimera was used in games this pre-season and where he has been in the practice line-ups. That tells me a lot. Weight trusts Kulemin, because the guy is a reliable player. You need guys like him in your lineup that do a little of everything (granted I know he doesn't score as much as he should, but there are so many ways he contributes to the game otherwise).

    I'm hoping that at the end of the season, the Isles re-sign him to something like a $2M per year contract.

    Oh, and I hope neither of them gets claimed. Having them at Bridgeport helps the younger players and if we have more injury issues you can do worse as your 16th and 17 forwards.
    This is so awesome and exciting. I honestly don't really care who sits the first few games. All 23 of these players 22 of which I like are going to get there chance to play a good portion of the games. Let the cream rise to the top!!!!!!!! Exciting times! Opening season puck drop can't come quick enough. I have playoff anxiety because of last seasons bad start. First 10 games I will probably have playoff butterflies in my stomach yeehaw. The fun is back!

    Highly unlikely either does. All teams put players on waivers over the past week and a few put better forwards on there.

    #Isles have put Stephen Gionta and Steve Bernier on waivers.

    I'm not worried about him signing either

    I actually see talent on Colorado, it depends largely on their goaltending. They may not make the playoffs but they should not be as epically bad as they were last year.

    You never know how teams view themselves, but it seems unlikely anyone is looking to unload any good players now unless they have cap issues or want to move someone on a bad contract.

    Plus I'm on the TK bandwagon, I would like to see how our young players perform first before giving up assets for a mediocre veteran. For the first time in forever I have some hope that our coaching staff will actually coach and nurture these guys instead of preferring to play the Marty Reasoners of the world.


    Colorado looks like the 09-10 Isles. They have a little talent, but one of them is Duchene. Could he perform well in the hopes it helps get him out of there? Yeah, but he could as easily suck badly just because he's miserable. Plus, I don't think their defense has much to go on either.

    I'm curious to see what teams look to add or move late in camp. After that, yeah, we will probably have to wait about 5 months.

    Besides the playoffs, I would like a vet 3C behind Barzal. If we had say Duchene as 2C, I would be fine with Nelson/Beauvillier. After the Duchene ship seemingly sailed, focus should have shifted to cheaper 2Cs or at least a 3C. Relying on 3 kids is tough, we should be happy if just one of them make an impact this season.
