Alain Vigneault said on Monday that he and Jeff Gorton will have a discussion coming up about possible roster moves, including maybe bringing up a center.
Vigneault said that he has gotten reports that both Boo Nieves & Vinni Lettieri have been playing well in Hartford.
Filip Chytil, who is also in Hartford, did not play on Sunday because the organization didn't want him playing 3 games in 3 days.
Vigneault said that he and Gorton will decide what to do, including possibly staying status quo with what they have.
So far this season:
- Filip Chytil: 4 games, 1 goal, 3 assists, plus four, 4 PIM, 9 shots on goal
- Vinni Letteri: 6 games, 2 goals, 1 assist, plus one, 4 PIM, 22 shots on goal
- Boo Nieves: 7 games, 2 goals, 1 assist, minus five, 2 PIM, 12 shots on goal
Vigneault said on Monday that neither Adam Cracknell or Paul Carey are true centers.
Adam Rotter: They need to call up a center and likely move on from one of Carey or Cracknell. I wouldn't call up Chytil, 4 games in the AHL isn't enough of a sample size, plus, the role at this point is to center the fourth line. I'd like to see what Lettieri or Nieves can do in that spot, adding some more youth, speed and skill to the lineup.
