    Maybe Hartford can make the playoffs for what the 2nd time in 6 years next season?

    I can't fairly judge any of these euro signings so I won't begin to speculate when and if they have any shot at making an impact at the NHL level.

    I don't think anybody can really claim to know too much about these players to say if these signings are good or not. They are probably fill-ins for a Lias and Filip.

    The highlight clips are nice, but nobody really makes lowlight reels. IWho really knows at this point? Grachev's highlights were dope.

    I'm sure the Rangers' European scouts know them quite well...

    Grachev came to my mind as soon I read highlight reels, funny how you brought him up right after.

    good call and that was my point as well.

    But I guess we should ignore all that and pencil them all in as incoming stars. Personally to me potential means they actually haven't done it yet.

    I like the signings because they’re young professional players. They cost nothing other than money and should we get lucky that one makes the team, it’ll be worth the risk - which there is none. Hartford can’t get much worse so why not get some new blood in there.

    They're too busy finding players to draft or sign.

    That's fair. They do cost us against the 50 pro contract limit though.

    You're welcome. About the same amount of added value as "Shame they don't post here."

    Which is fine. Who played On the 4th line this year? Wouldn’t hate to lose all of those contracts.

    Signing the most productive Scandinavian players relative to their age and seeing if something sticks. It's essentially due diligence for a team in this phase.
