Leivo and Motte can be put on the ice near the end of a one goal game, Goldobin is glued to the bench, so I guess he isn’t hurting them? Now I see the logic.

Goldy has a little Larionov to his game. Similar skills just one hasnt found the wet spot yet.

Its worth another camp before losing him right before he figures it out. Not saying sign a 8 year extension just lets see how camp plays out

Dan, I love ya man, but are you seriously comparing any part of Goldy's game to the great professor's... one of the greatest Russian players of all time?

The honest truth is that Goldobin would be in the exact same doghouse in the KHL for the exact same reasons.
Try to focus on THIS year...

Seriously, I do not get the angst. Goldobin is not even that skilled by Russian standards.

He reminds me more of Alex Burmistrov in the skills department.

Well...a little isnt saying he is...noomsayin.
The way he curls and draws a defender, maybe how he creates space with skill and stickhandling when its tight. Hes talented.

Its worth another look in camp, not like I'm saying gift the guy a top line slot

Early fall is quite nice in the northeast States.

There have been glimpses in Goldobin's game that have shown promise at both ends of the ice. I don't think he gets the credit he deserves for back checking because of the high risk offensive mistakes he makes. That lazy soft pass to middle from just inside the offensive blue line needs to never happen again.
Over the Internet, you can pretend to be anyone or anything.

I'm amazed that so many people choose to be complete twats.

I don’t mind Goldobin. I just don’t see any room for him unless Sven is traded. This team has too many forwards and a couple of those (Sutter, Eriksson) are next to impossible to move unless you bury them in the minors. It might be easier to just let Goldy walk or deal him for a late pick.

Yeahno, Sutter has good decent value if he proves healthy.

Eriksson will require a sweetener attached though...
