I was hoping that Val D'Or got eliminated by now so we could see Mantha in GR too. Guess we'll have to wait another round.

Hnnnnnggg

Not sure how our prospect pool got so stacked. Well done scouts. We can afford several of those guys being busts and still be solid, especially if Smith keeps improving like he has been.

Oullett and Sproul looked very good. I thought the blues games was the best lashoff and kindl have played for a long time. Whole D looked good.

That being said, both Oullett and Sproul can play 2 more years in GR. Keep them there as a pair and let them develop. Rushing Dmen up is a bad idea. Smith was/is much older than both of those guys when he was forced to play in the NHL. it has hampered his development. Sign a vet like Greene to pair with Smith and let O/S slow cook in GR.

I doubt Almqvist is back next year. he has to pass through waivers to go to GR and isn't as good as the other 6 vets we have now.

I actually think Smith would have developed better if he was up earlier. First - he could have learned from Lids. Second - no matter how old you are as a rookie dman you will make rookie mistakes - Smith is going through that now.
