I agree with <a href="/users/aedoran" target="_blank">@aedoran</a> . I think we set the kids up for success in GR (Veleno, ras, Zadina, maybe Svech) all playing top 6, build their confidence. Then we probably see at least a one or two of them in the latter parts of the season after injuries or trades. For now, I think we roll with Helm, Nielsen, LGD, Abby, Erne, DLR/Ehn depending on injuries. I think Svech has to get time this year with the big club but maybe they build his confidence back up playing with our better prospects in gr <div class="quote"><div class="quote_t">Quoting: <b>toddbertuzzi44</b></div><div>if we didnt have the Neilsen contract, i would be more open to taking a risk on Turris</div></div>
For me, it’s this exactly. That plus the logjam then at centre. Nielsen and Turris would be fine, but then having Helm, LGD and Abby as well, we won’t be able to get rid of all of them. I’m already counting on Helm and Abby being scratched or injured. Can’t be scratching 3 forwards. The other option is no young guys in the lineup, I don’t like that idea either. We already signed Filps, no room for another vet forward unless we unload our guys (like you did in this trade). Just would prefer not getting two back, if it’s just Turris, maybe. Need Svech to get some chances. But having all of Nielsen, Turris and Filps is maybe just too much still.
