UPDATE: As you know, news doesn’t wait for after business hours…
Lindback and Blum are the winners of a most-expenses-paid trip to Milwaukee this weekend.
Jim Diamond, who writes for the Nashville Predators Examiner site, published some news late Thursday night that will likely have quite the impact on this upcoming weekend for the Admirals.
So good for Smitty on his promotion. And good for us to get some time with Lindback. Smitty will be the 5th Admiral this year to earn their first NHL call-up, after Thang, Josi, Ellis, and Bourque (who scored his first NHL goal tonight, incidentally….)
It’s a well done piece by Diamond, and I urge you to read it…but I’ll quote here what he said at the end of the article.
With Lindback headed north, the question is whether or not he will have some company on his flight. The team is currently carrying eight defensemen. Head coach Barry Trotz said following the Dallas game that they will soon be discussing their blue line situation. Smart money says Ryan Ellis will be headed back with an outside chance that Jonathon Blum is reassigned for the second time this season.
It’ll be interesting to see who they decide and for what reason. Who would you rather have sent back?
