We discuss Tomas Hertl and Evander Kane’s situations, as well as Dylan Gambrell’s hold on the fourth-line center position (6:00) and John Leonard’s spot on the San Jose Sharks (10:00). Then we get into Jasper Weatherby’s claim to the throne (12:30), Radim Simek’s availability (18:00), and Marc-Édouard Vlasic’s decline (22:00).

stock down on Blichfeld, who had an outstanding rookie pro debut season in the AHL (led the Cuda in goals and points despite only playing 25 games), sounds a bit blinded by the new shiny players over promising prospects already in the pipeline. Blichfeld didn’t get much of an opportunity with the Sharks after being suspended. he did score his first NHL goal in the 5 games “opportunity” he got. he’s got top 6 pure goal scorer upside. i think it’s too early to say his stock has fallen. at least wait until after camp tbf. i don’t really get… Read more »
