Alex Ackerman looks at where the team is with just over a month left in the regular AHL season. She discusses current and potential player movement between Syracuse and the Tampa Bay Lightning. This includes the continued recall of defenseman Darren Raddysh and potential movement regarding Philippe Myers if and when Raddysh hits his waiver threshold with Tampa. With an eye on a current injury to Lightning captain Steven Stamkos, Alex also ponders whether Tampa would recall Alex Barre-Boulet if a forward was needed, or if perhaps they’d lean towards a player like Gage Goncalves or Simon Ryfors.
Alex checks out the AHL’s playoff race as it stands at 3:30 p.m. on March 12. She dissects the closeness of the North Division’s teams in points and predicts that a lot of jostling will occur in the coming weeks as teams charge through the final sprint. She closes the podcast with a look at the upcoming schedules of Syracuse, Utica, and Rochester, and the important differences in divisional play between the three teams.
