    I meant with regard to having some of these guys pan out....

    MacDonald does seem to want to test the waters which worries me a bit because he's a player for sure but who knows.

    Ah I see. And yeah it doe such about MacDonald.. since he cant get an ELC. His contract can be very tricky.. Some teams will probably give him a 1-way contract i think and I think we'd only give him a 2-way. And who the heck knows what he wants money wise.

    his defense is trash, from what i've heard.

    like to the point that we'd DESTROY him on our boards due to his bad decision making. and yeah, he can put up points, but thats at the AHL level. we already know that that means nothing (lappin)

    Ya my interest in MacDonald does not extend beyond the AHL level.

    And I give him credit for coming from out of nowhere to become a dangerous AHL defender, but the markings on the wall seem to say he is not an NHL player.

    I don't think you guys watched too many entire Bing games to have a strong opinion on MacDonald

    Coach K called him an elite offensive defenseman at that level.

    And he's not quick to hurl out comments that often.

    I feel like he is the kinda of player that a team is willing so sign him and play on a limited role on the 3rd paring with some PP minutes and have him do well

    Does NJ have room for two players along the lines of Butcher?

    Marathon men: Phantoms win longest AHL game ever
    May 10, 2018

    Ten years after the top affiliates of the Philadelphia Flyers and Carolina Hurricanes made American Hockey League history, they were at it again.

    Alex Krushelnyski scored 6:48 into the fifth overtime period, giving the Lehigh Valley Phantoms a 2-1 win over the Charlotte Checkers in Game 4 of the Atlantic Division Finals.

    The longest game ever played in the 82-year history of the AHL ended at 1:09 a.m. EDT after six hours and six minutes and more than seven periods of hockey.

    The longest game in AHL history is over! Alex Krushelnyski is the hero and the @LVPhantoms get the win! #LVvsCHA pic.twitter.com/enyOOkj9n7

    So the winning goalie made 94 saves on 95 shots. The loser, only 51 of 53.

    I wonder how many fans were left in the building at the end.

    I think so.

    There is no doubt that Butcher has earned a bigger role next season with NJ. In the playoffs he ended up on the first pairing with Vatanen and I like for him to stay there and push Greene down to a lower role.

    MacDonald can be given Butcher's old role on the 3rd pairing, playing sheltered even strength minutes and maximum power play minutes. I wouldn't even mind if Lovejoy kept his spot in the lineup to help MacDonald with the transition.

    Butcher-Vatanen
    Greene-Severson
    MacDonald-Lovejoy

    Santini to rotate in for Severson and Lovejoy on occasions.

    I didn’t play close enough attention to Butcher as a first pairing guy but judging from the comments here I’m not seeing anyone else suggest Butcher as a Greene replacement. Hopefully you are on to something.

    MacDonald is hardly worth thinking about let alone penciling him into NHL lineups

    No updates since April 26th.

    Goaltending-wise, Mackenzie Blackwood is still listed as day to day, but wasn’t at Thursday’s practice, so Olivier Mantha and Drew Fielding will handle whatever duties are needed for the time being.

    First four home games should help Thunder

    Blackwood is still on reserve.

    It's Drew Fielding's net until he puts up a stinker.

    These posts irk me to no end. It's just a huge blanket statement on a message board making it seem like it's not worth discussing.
