    AHL news, but it looks like Lowe's been re-signed.

    Keegan Lowe - CapFriendly - NHL Salary Caps

    Seems like thats your main 7 defencemen for Bakersfield set for next year.

    Bear, Jones, Lagesson, Mantha(?), Gryba, Stanton, and Lowe.

    Our AHL depth on defense is actually looking pretty good.

    why waste a spot on our 50 man reserve list for him is my question--even at the AHL level he is a fringe player

    he should be on an AHL only deal

    Eve at the AHL level he is fringe? The frick?
    He is the only player on the entire team to have a double digit positive +/- at 14. Yes +/- isn't a be all stat but he is a good vet to have down there and wouldn't be a bad injury call up to have warm the bench so the actual prospects get playing time.

    According to lots of people who watched our team down there, he was our best defender on the team.

    Except the last article I read about him said he isn't going to to let the injury derail him. Soderberg is legally blind in one eye since he was 21 and still plays. Mantha isn't done yet.

    I haven’t been paying attention. What happened to Simpson?

    He is definitely not a fringe AHL player, that is a ridiculous claim.

    So I'm assuming this means we won't bring back Dillon Simpson. Also I don't have a problem giving Keegan a deal, he is a good AHL defender and reasonable depth for injury.
    He's got a harder road ahead of him than he had before, but he is resilient and seems to have his mind in the right place to try and battle this adversity.

    I have both Bear and Jones ahead of Lowe and if Mantha can bounce back--him

    Jones and Mantha would have to take huge strides to get to Lowe’s level. Could happen but I don’t see it this year.

    We also have Dillion Simpson running around as well and both are LHD

    I have no problem signing him for the AHL--but give him an AHL contract and not an NHL contract that counts against our 50 contract limit

    We have a discussion nearly every deadline where we talk about moves and we are at 48 to 49 contracts

    this is type of signing that burns us then--Yes I realize this most of the time is just me--but I always looks at where we are in contracts and then look at the good teams and they mostley hang around the 45 contract level so have flexibility in contracts

    Hating on guys named Lowe is par for the course in this city but Keegan is a great AHL defenceman.

    By most accounts he was the teams best defender down in the AHL all of last season. He doesn't have a future in the NHL, but its dishonest to call him a fringe AHLer.

    Going off the numbers I saw--while maybe dishonest to call him a fringe ahlers, but he wont be an NHLER and we just have him an NHL contract and if I am reading capfriendly correct a $200k signing bonus--not sure of that counts against the cap

    Good veteran AHL defenseman that can play on the bottom pairing in a pinch. I have no issue with this signing.

    Long as Jones-Bear get the heavy minutes, this is fine.

    Please tell me a single instance where having a very good AHL Dman signed against the 50 contract limit has burnt us? One single instance will do.

    Won't be in the AHL in a few years. Poor signing. Wish my daddy could get my a job.

    Haha, did someone actually compare the potential of Jones with that of Lowe. It might be an apt comparison now but Jones will outdistance Lowe before long.
