    I guess no real surprises since they were all going to be cut at some point anyways, but I liked what I saw from several of those names. They’ll be good players for us in the future.

    I am happy they sent Marincin back to PG. It won’t hurt him to be there for another year and hopefully find his first half from last year form again. Martindale still needs a contract too…

    The funny thing is that the Ottawa Citizen said he was signed and that they don’t expect him back there because of that (credit to Lowetide for that info). I can’t find anything anywhere else including the superb CapGeek.

    So that means if we want to keep Tulupov he has to accept an AHL pro contract? Martin dale puts us at 50 but not sure if that is including RNH.

  5. Racki says:

    That would be the case, but there are other guys that you’ve included in the 49 count that are going to junior (ex. Marincin). Not sure if there are other names though.. haven’t had a good look.

    So at worst, we’re at 48 right now. I’m not sure how a guy like Rajala works (in Finland). Does he count to the 50.. anyone? Beuler?

    jeeze, i like the look of our ahl team.

    as far as rnh with hemsky; that is something management has to do to give him a proper look. personally i think he can use another year of junior, do the WJCs, dominate, lead, take that team under his wings… and develop, develop, develop. i dont think it will hurt him. if he does stay, i dont mind us giving him nights off so that he can see the game from above or help him keep on any gains he packs on-which is tough to do during the year when you play every other night. Lending him to the junior squad will be beneficial as well.
