I wanted to start this on draft day, but that wasn't in the cards, so I'll take it from free agency on out. I'm going to start with a quick overview of each contracted guy on the roster (and a few on the Phantoms) which will include chances he makes the regular season roster. Then I'll head into moves we could, should and have to make. And then finally, what the roster could (believably) look like... Read More »

A first place team plays worse hockey than their minor league affiliate (who've won 28 out of 75 games thus far.)
If I'm Peter Laviolette, Leights starts the next two games.
As I said in my last post, having him on the big-boy roster, if nothing else, will show Bouchrovsky that:
