Pretty disappointing to see Cehlarik down for Nordstrom. He is the better player by any statistical measure.

I read something about it being related to Cehlarik's eligibility to play in AHL playoffs. Putting aside the issue of whether Cehlarik is one of the 12 best, does this mean he's stuck down there, or that he just has to be there as of a particular date, and can then get back on the 95-Causeway shuttle for the rest of the NHL season?

You brother must be thrilled Halak is in net.
It will make the commentary less biting. With cops getting shot and local sports franchise owners getting pinched, I imagine we’ll find other stuff to chat about.

They are allowed 4 regular call ups between now and the end of the season. They can’t really shuttle guys back and forth. They get unlimited emergency recalls for injuries, but with those at some point a decision needs to be made.

Stempniak is going to be one. Cehlarik is probably two at some point.

They also did not join the Providence Bruins today, so they're kind of in limbo. But I would expect to see at least Cehlarik up very soon

They are also only 1pt ahead of TOR and lose the first tie-breaker. They need to play the best 12 night in and night out. If they need Nordstrom for PK then put Kuraly at C and let Accari sit in the press box or play Nordstrom on his off-wing at E/S and sit Backes. Not like Nordstrom offense will suffer playing off-wing.

Trading for more scoring depth and then assigning scoring depth to PRO makes no sense to me. Cehlarik shouldn't be part of the AHL playoffs period.

How the hell was that not a penalty shot? Coyle was in alone and got no shot off because of the penalty

That was a fun first period. These two teams meeting in the Finals is kind of a dream of mine, mostly because I could get tickets to it out here.
