I am very excited to see what Blashill can do with this team. But what I am most excited about is there are no guarantees where players will line up on the roster... Will Ericsson remain on the top pair? Will Smith get a look on the power-play? Will Weiss have a chance at the 2nd line center spot? Will Jurco be in the top 6(9)? Will Pulkkinen be utilized better in the offensive zone (left side faceoff circle), Will Abdelkader / Helm remain in the top 6 (not necessarily saying they shouldn't...)? Will Ferraro / Callahan get a look on the 4th line? A lot of question marks... Going to be an exciting training camp. Can't wait!
I asked earlier in this thread, "How did Blash use Weiss in his conditioning stints with GR?"
I wonder solely because, maybe Weiss gets a chance under Blash the way he didn't with Babcock...
I mean, the guy did have some bright spots, some glimpses of his former self, and they were quickly buried*
*Maybe deservedly. I don't really remember exactly how it all went down, but I have hopes for the guy.
I hope he gets another chance and I hope he can show he's still a capable second line center.
I'm not saying HE IS. I'm saying I hope he gets another chance at it and somehow pulls it off.
