Dahlen isn’t ready. He hasn’t outplayed Leipsic, Motte,Goldobin or Virtanen. He has to beat out 2-3 of those guys to have a realistic chance of sticking.

I don’t think he’s a better choice over Gagne or Gaunce either, not for the roles they’d be expected to play anyway. He needs Utica time.

I’m really liking Motte and he’s outplayed a number of guys. I just think the numbers game may catch up to him.

Our D is bad though.

So LA's in town with most of their regulars at home vs Vegas its 5-1 Vegas in the third after Vegas spanked Colorado 5-1 the other night and Lit up Arizona 7-2 in their opener that team might be a problem again they can score

Paddy, Vegas will be as good as they were last year. Maybe not the playoff success but they’ll get to the dance.

First three spots in the Pacific are spoken for:

San Jose
Las Vegas
LA

Calgary, Anaheim and Edmonton fight for a wild card, though both may come from the Central. Vancouver and Phoenix fight to stay out of the basement

Hutton sucks. He can't make a pass on the powerplay. He can't take a pass... He always stickhandles himself into trouble. It's time to give Juolevi a look on the powerplay.

Dahlen needs seasoning in the AHL, but he has the tools and smart, and he plays hard.
Gaudette probably as a call-up

We should give Goldovin more top 6 time during the span.

Leipsic and Motte are just placeholders.

The problem will be who gets to play with Pettersson.

Why not granlund and/or virtanen

His problem is really his brain. His decision making is just simply poor.

Having Pettersson on the right side, it really opens up the BBs downlow and in front of the net
