Could A Dog Or Two Help?

Dustin Boyd, who came over from Nashville in the Sergei Kostitsyn trade, has been put on waivers by the Canadiens and so much for getting anything for Sergei, as the other guy in the deal, Dan Ellis, decided he could make more money elsewhere and currently wears a Tampa Bay jersey.

That’s fine. Alex Auld did the job his first time out and we expect more of the same. Tampa can have Ellis.

So now what, in regards to skaters up front? On the farm, young Ian Schultz, who, along with Lars Eller was part of the Halak deal with St. Louis, has notched o points in 7 games so far in Hamilton.

But David Desharnais has 4 goals and 11 assists and Max Pacioretty has 3 goals and 9 assists, both after 11 games, as the leaders of the Bulldogs so far this year. And Yannick Weber, although a defenceman, is right behind with 7 goals and 4 assists, also after 11 games.

We need scoring. Could one of these help?

  1. On Saturday to me Boyd stood out as being lost. I think Ellis wanted more guaranteed starts, he wasn’t willing to play as little as Auld.

    Desharnais is stuck stereotyped by his size and doesn’t get the opportunities he deserves. Pacioretty has had a few chances and will get some more when he’s let out of the doghouse. Weber is mostly a PP specialist; do we want to do that again? I would be good to shake things up if the PP doesn’t improve soon.

  2. Of note, Brendan Gallagher (18 years old 5’8″ and 170 lbs) of the WHL’s Vancouver Giants is leading the league in scoring with his 17th goal in 18 games.
