Am a bit surprised they chose Condotta over Stapley, but I certainly don’t have the level of information they have.

 

Perhaps they see Condotta as potentially a really good 4th line player.  Maybe Stapley is one of those in between players, not good enough for top 6 in the NHL but not really a bottom 6 player either.  I am just guessing though, Commandant would have a much better take on this.

Stapley was a Bergevin/Timmins guy, I am not surprised HughGort cut ties

I thought stapley would get a contract as his college career was similar to evans and I thought with time in the AHL he might have a chance to be a bottom 6 guy.  He would need to improve his defensive game though.

 

I think they see Condotta as closer to NHL ready (maybe just one year of AHL) and having a different role.  Hes more competing for Pezzetta's role though Condotta has discipline and doesnt do the stupid shit that gets Pezzetta into trouble.

I think the fact he was drafted by Bergevin/Timmins  has zero to do with it.   Suzuki, Caulfield and Romanov are all Bergevin/Timmins guys and I don't think they are going anywhere. Same with Jordan Harris and they signed him.

Pezzetta has been more disciplined than he is given credit for. 
and having another 4th liner closer to the NHL doesn’t make

sense since we have so many of those in Dauphin, the Pitlicks, Poehling and Armia

MB and TT stated they were high on him and that statement was posted on this forum before by other than me.

It is relevant

I don't see the relevance at all. Hugo will make a hockey decision when deciding whether to sign Stapley or not and it will have nothing to do with the fact that he was drafted by Timmins/Bergevin.

I did not say he was not signed because who he was draft by

 

I said I was not surprised he was not signed because the new management is not as high on him as the old management was

 

MB/TT were high on the late rounder, like on Hillis.

 

The new management obviously is not as high

 

Get it?

Re: Pezzetta, 0 PIMS in his last 14 games.  That's quite good for him.

 

If Condotta makes it, he's a different player than most of those fourth liners (other than Tyler Pitlick who plays a similar style).  If they want a physical player that can kill penalties, that's a profile they don't have a lot of in the system.

I don't think HuGo care what round a player was drafted, in or whether not drafted at all. They appear to be very much information-driven, and looking for players that are the best fit. Whether that's a match for what Bergevin and Timmins drafted or not is really irrelevant.

You explained it better this time. Your original post said  "Stapley was a Bergevin/Timmins guy, I am not surprised HughGort cut ties"  so it was not a stretch to take it to mean it was because Bergevin/Timmins drafted him and you would draft a guy because you are somewhat high on that player.

Brett Stapley opens up the scoring in the first game of the final four (Michigan vs. Denver). Technically still a prospect even if the plan is not to sign him. Game can be seen on ESPN2

 

Rhett Pitlick plays later tonight at 8:30pm (Minnesota vs Minnesota State). That game will be on ESPNU.

PENALTY
2ND 10:06

Had my doubts; but maybe he has what it takes.

 

Kapanen 2a, 5 pts in last 3 games in playoff series.

Kidney assisted on OT winner.

Mysak/Xhekaj 3 shots each.

The team said they needed to send Brook to the ECHL as he has spent so much time on the sidelines he needs a mini training camp.

 

I still think Brook has the tools but needs to stay healthy, get a lot of ice time and gain some confidence.  After his last year in junior I thought he was a sure fire NHL'er but not everyone develops at the same pace and he has had some bad luck. Too early to give up on him.
