Yeah, we officially have Nicolas Beaudin, Adam Boqvist, Ryan Carpenter, Alex DeBrincat, Lucas Wallmark in the protocol.

Certainly a bit concerning, and some key players and entering into the protocol. With the attrition we have had we are beating or competing against all teams not located in Tampa. Kevin Lakenin has been impressive no other way to put it. He is looking in early take like a guy who could be the goalie of the future for this team. Obviously will need to show it for a longer period of time. Plenty of things to work on for this team. But also some things to be encouraged by. 10 points in their last 7 games isn't a horrible look for a team that is re-building.

Carolina should be an interesting match up to see where they stand and don't have too high of hopes for their chances vs. Dallas. To give up less than 5 goals vs. Dallas however, would be nice.
