    Matt Stajan is slowly becoming a player I hate to see on the ice...if he's not botching faceoffs, he's taking penalties, or throwing the puck away on stupid passes/plays...he was goddamn awful against Anaheim on Wednesday. Treliving needs to just trade him away for picks and bring Granlund back up.

    Granlund isn't an NHL center. As much as you might hate Stajan, he's better than anyone else we can put on the 4th line currently. Granlund is atrocious in the faceoff circle where Stajan was actually 63% the other night vs Anaheim. It's good to have veterans in the lineup instead of icing a bunch of kids, another year in the AHL will do nothing but help the pipeline. You don't want what happened in Edmonton to happen here.

    Can we still just get rid of Stajan either way? If he's not injured he's just making me cringe every time he's on the ice

    Not to mention he seems to get tossed out of faceoffs more than he wins them

    Not going to get much for a 4th line veteran tbh. You'd be lucky for a 4th and at that point, it's prob just better keeping him. He's good in the locker room too which is super underrated.

    He's also a 4th line center with a $3.1M cap hit Though it's not like we're in cap trouble.

    Weird, I swear I read somewhere that it was going to be all rookies. Cool

    Yeah it's just 6 rookies getting plonked into the skills competition along with whoever else from either team.

    Yet some of the rookies might be better than the vets.

    The skills competition is my favorite part. Third best memory of Messier behind his guarantee and hoisting the cup was when he won the accuracy title back in 96.
