Friday's Dump and Chase: David Poile Vacation

It's nearing the end of July, the Preds seem satisfied with their roster, and their affiliation with the Cincinati Cyclones is finalized. The fan's dog days of the offseason are the general manager's vacation days. I imagine Poile vacations exlusively on the island where The Man with the

Predators Extend Affiliation Agreement with Cincinnati | Admirals Roundtable
"It nearly goes without saying – but I’ll say it anyways. It’s remarkable how long Nashville has kept its AHL and ECHL affiliates for so long whilst so many other organizations get crazy with changes on a nearly year to year basis. From Fall 2007, the pipeline has been Nashville – Milwaukee – Cincinnati. It’s like a constant in the world we can all rely on."

Jordan Weal scored 172 points in 212 games in the AHL including 139 points in his last 149 games. He was also the Calder Cup MVP.

Nick Shore scored 80 points in in 106 AHL games. Shore and Weal aren't sure-thing prospects by any means, but the numbers are encouraging and they both fill roles the Kings need for cheap. The rich get richer, man.

Mind the Gap: Do the Oilers have enough depth at center? | The Copper & Blue
Could we see a return to Edmonton for Jarret Stoll? He could probably still give 15 minutes or so a night and play between Korpikoski and Purcell (assuming that is the third line). It would also push Lander with Hendricks and Letstu who would need to be sheltered. Lander and Letestu know their way around the offensive zone.
