Yeah, we agree that we are both excited about Mikkola and what he may be able to do. But for this season so far, the Blues haven't had anyone fill Eddy's role.Matangama wrote: ↑Mon Feb 17, 2020 11:15 amYeah, fair point.....but we have seen what type of player Eddy is and he is pretty much “just a guy”. Mikkola is almost 24 and has been around for a while, and has a lot of international experience. He isn’t a 19 year old kid that had a couple of good games. Time for him to play.Dread_Pirate_Westley wrote: ↑Mon Feb 17, 2020 11:11 amHe's played five games. I don't think that counts as a replacement, with all due respect.Matangama wrote: ↑Mon Feb 17, 2020 11:09 am
I would take Mikkola over Edmundson every day of the week. Bigger, younger, cheaper. We haven’t seen him drop the gloves, but you don’t keep a defenseman in the lineup just because he is a willing fighter.....at least not anymore.
With Jaybo done, it’s time to put Mikkola in the lineup and leave him there.
Is Mikkola bigger than Eddy? I think they are basically identical.
Hope they get him in there tomorrow. I guess for Bortz?
