Welcome to the Thursday ramblings. I am in a state of “I have no idea what to write about” and have been like that for a few days, so I decided I will just give some random thoughts. These ramblings might not be very long but hopefully I can spout off something helpful.
Make sure to listen to the DPR show, Peter Harling puts a ton of work in to them!
Alright after that list of advertisements it now it is time for my random thoughts:
Jesse Granger (@JesseGranger_) who covers Vegas for The Athletic expects Cody Glass to start the season on line four between Ryan Reaves and Tomas Nosek, and all I can say to that is “Please little baby Jesus, do not let this happen.”
Cody Eakin is projected to play between Alex Tuch and Brandon Pirri. I sit there and look and this projected list and say wonder why NHL coaches start prized rookies between players who cannot score. If Glass starts on line four I expect him to be scratched often and later sent to the AHL. If the team is smart they will start him between Pirri and Tuch as a sheltered third line… which would almost be as good as a Nikita Gusev-Cody Glass-Alex Tuch third line… Sorry Vegas fans, I am disappointed the G. Knights did not keep him either but as a Devils fan I am ecstatic!
If Glass starts on line four I would guess: 18 GP 2G-3A-5P for the season
If Glass starts on the third line I would guess: 70GP 12G-20A-32P for the season
Andrei Svechnikov will score 30+ goals next year as Brind’Amour will finally put him on the first powerplay
