I only saw the highlights but seems like he had a strong game yesterday, am I mistaken?
Had a good game, strong on the puck.
Kind of surprised. Had a good game yesterday and we could use his size. But it's probably for the best for now.
It's almost like Bergevin is no longer winning that trade.
Probably looked better than Weal so Clod had to do something.
Almost everybody except 4 posters who disagree with you on the last page......ya, that’s so much “like every other person watching”.......
is he ready???.....maybe not fully
should still be developing?....I’d say last nights game went miles towards his development
solid game from him last night.
Few posters thinking that Poehling being called up was NOT dumb
It wasn't dumb. He's the type of player Julien wanted for that position and he came in and played it well. Now he goes back down and continues his season in Laval. Really simple
Pretty good team then, these misfits just beat the team that beat Boston......
on another note.......4 losses in a row for the B’s
Domi started the season well. He pretty much picked up right where he left off. Since then, he is struggling, and its affecting his decision making. It seems to be mostly mental now.
I’m all for this post!!!!
Poehling buried on the 4th for 50 games straight would be dumb
I’m very comfortable with Poehling going back to the A......my point is the decision to play him last night was lightyears away from being a “Dumb” decision
Should call Evans up.
Knowing the Habs, they'll go with the best 12. When Poehling is ready to beat out Weal and Cousins he'll be in the top 12 of a healthy lineup.
But, with Drouin and KK out longer term, there should be a spot on the 4th line for him even with Byron coming back. If Poehling can play like he played last night, he's ahead of Hudon, Barber, Peca, etc...
My hope is that'll play so well that he'll unseat one of Cousins or Weal on the 3rd line next to Suzuki. And then in that role play so well that it's Lehkonen and Cousins that cone out of the top 9 when Drouin and KK come back. But he may not have developed enough yet to be abke to do that.
When Byron comes back:
Tatar Danault Gallagher
Lehkonen Domi Armia
Poehling Suzuki Cousins
Byron Thompson Weal
When Drouin snd Kk come back:
Tatar Danault Gallagher
Poehling Domi Suzuki
Drouin KK Armia
Byron Thompson Lehkonen
He played his best game of the year last night. Is this to get him into a game with Laval instead of sitting in the Bigs?
More likely it's to save another 10K on the cap or whatever he racks up with 2 days on the big club.
just a stupid ****ing move. like how ****ing stupid are we to...I mean oh I guess that worked out okay.
It was night and day compared to his other games on the call up. He seemed so composed last night. The game slowed down a little for him.
But for sure go back to Laval. Get big minutes. Develop.
See you next year all ready.
No its because Weal, Thompson, Cousins are future HOF players that cannot be scratched.
Good for him. Going down without his confidence broken. Take what you learned kid and hone your skills.
Is this a Hudon type of situation where he'll be re-called like tomorrow or something
He doesn't need to go through waivers so I doubt it.
I think it's because Byron is coming back soon , seems early as they said about 4 weeks from Nov 19th.
I disagree.... it's to give Poehling plenty of ice time, provide an environment with less pressure in order to develop his hockey skills and leadership and to learn to be consistent at playing in a dominant way at both ends of the ice.
Good point. Except Poehling doesn't have to go through waivers. Perhaps its for cap reasons.
