Good news for Foote and looks like we're going to see Katchouk. Raddysh has had a rough 2 games, hopefully Katchouk can start strong.

Feel like he could be a bit of a spark plug too. With how he played preseason could bring a bit of energy.

We definitely need a spark in the bottom 6. They've been pretty underwhelming as a group through 2 games.

YES! WHAT A SHOT BY STAMMER!!! Now THAT was a terrific win! Defense was excellent, PK unit was absolutely flawless (WHAT A KILL IN OT), and Stammer is looking absolutely fantastic so far. LET'S GO BOLTS!!!

That's a great bounce back game for the Bolts. Only let in one, and it honestly could have been stopped by Vasy. Good structured game.

Hopefully Kucherov and Rutta are ok. Too many injuries only 3 games into the season. And we don't have BB to slot in now if Kucherov does miss time.

Cirelli line has looked good this season. Stamkos has showed good pop thus far.

I missed it. How did Katchouk go? 6mins of ice time doesn't scream "crushed it"

I thought he looked good. Moved it around the offensive zone decently when he got chances. Game script kind of required the big dogs to be on the ice for most of the game.

This sucks.


The ABB thing is looking dumber by the day. First Raddysh sucks, now we need him to replace Kucherov. My guess is Joseph goes on the top line. Or maybe Cirelli

Cirelli could go to the top line in the past because we had an embarrassment of riches at center. No Gourde or Johnson this season though.

My 2 cents on the matter is that I'm in favor of giving Joseph a look on the top line.

I mean Stamkos could move to C on the 2nd line, but he's looked so good this season that don't want to change anything he's doing.

Not as bad as I feared. Now we have ammunition for all the people who think that we are going to use Kuch's LTIR money again

There's a lot of them. Considering we can't afford the 5M of Gourde or Johnson idk how they think we are gonna afford Eichel. In order to make up the money we'd have to have like a 16 man roster

So if Kucherov goes on LTIR then we could bring up some young guys and give them a few games each. Somppi should definitely get a shot. Maybe Ryfors, Fortier, etc.

Ryfors has been quiet and somewhat ineffective with Syracuse thus far. Somppi was stretchered off the ice during Syracuse's first game, but I think he avoided serious injury.

Huntington of all people has been the standout in Syracuse through 2 games. Fortier has been solid too. I think we should give Raddysh and Katchouk as much playing time as possible for now, but I would like to give some players a few games later just to see what we have.

If anything, just spending time practicing with the Bolts would be a good experience for some of the prospects.

Apparently we're just not allowed to score breakaways this season

I was about to say this one is over, but we have a PP coming up. We'll probably be 0-6 when it's done, so, it's over. At the very least tonight it was fun watching Katchouk and Raddysh play together. I think they showed they deserve a little more trust, at least when together.

The PP is set up to run through Kucherov. Halpern needs to change what we're trying to do on the PP because waiting for Kucherov to pick apart a defense isn't going to happen with Palat in Kuch's spot. More puck movement and shooting, maybe something like Carolina's PP.

Last year's playbook shouldn't be too dusty. Last year was Palat, Point, Killer, Stammer and Heddy yeah?

I personally would have burned that playbook. Cannot believe the luck Kucherov has had in the past 2 years. Groin injury requiring surgery after 2020 playoffs, cracked ribs in the 2021 playoffs, and now another groin injury. Usually this amount of injuries is exclusively reserved for Stamkos.
