As a consequence of today's trade with Atlanta which moved Bolt Prospects' #23 ranked prospect, Andre Deveaux, out of the organization, Bolt Prospects would like to announce an update of our Midterm Rankings and the prospect page. Deveaux's subtraction moves the #24 and #25 ranked prospects, Denis Kazionov and Marek Bartanus, up one slot in the rankings. Adam Henrich will now move into the top-25 at the #25 spot.
In addition, Stephen Baby's name has been added to the prospect page as an overage prospect. Baby, who turned 27 yesterday, is well over the 24 year old on opening night requirement to qualify as a regular prospect.
Kyle Wanvig, by virtue of the 51 games he played with the Minnesota Wild in 2005-2006, is considered graduated by Bolt Prospects criteria and will not be added to the prospects page. Any prospect who plays 41 or more games in a single season is considered a graduate by site rules.
Erik Erlendsson of the Tampa Tribune reports:
First the tradeâ€¦
Lightning have traded Andy Delmore and Andre Deveaux to Atlanta in exchange for Stephen Baby and Kyle Wanvig. All four players will remain in the minors for now, Delmore and Deveaux to Chicago while Baby and Wanvig will be assigned to Springfield.
Of note, apparently Delmore may more than likely stay in the minors as Philadelphia is ready to swipe him off waivers if he is put on recall, so there is a good chance that Delmore wonâ€™t come back to bite the Lightning as a member of the Thrashers this season.
It makes me sick to my stomach to see the Falcons blow a 3-0 lead.
Karri Ramo allowed 4 goals on 27 shots in the loss and his season record (13-14-0) now falls under .500 for the first time since October. Norm Milley led the Falcons with 1 goal and 1 assist while Daniel Corso had 2 assists. Eric Healey and Andre Deveaux had the other Falcons goals and Doug O'Brien, Adam Henrich and Andy Delmore had individual helpers. Milley was named third star of the game.
Instead of leapfrogging Portland into 5th in the division and keeping pace 4 points back of the final Atlantic Division playoff spot, the Falcons have dropped 6 points out of the playoffs and just 1 point out of the Atlantic Division basement. Tonight's game was the first of a five game spot in the schedule where Springfield looked to have some winnable games, but the third period collapse against Lowell seems an ominous sign.

The Springfield Falcons have announced the recall of LW/C Adam Henrich and RW/C Andre Deveaux from Johnstown of the ECHL. To make room, the Falcons also announced they have returned Maxime Boisclair to Johnstown and released Randy Rowe from his PTO and returned him to Johnstown as well.
In 26 games in the ECHL this season, Henrich has 8 goals and 22 points with 109 penalty minutes and a +8 rating. In 21 games with the Chiefs, Deveaux has 6 goals and 14 points with 51 penalty minutes and a -4 rating.
Boisclair, who still leads the Chiefs in scoring, had just 1 goal in his 17 game recall to Springfield with 6 penalty minutes and a -3 rating. Rowe was similarly ineffective scoring just 2 goals and 3 points in 17 games with a -2 rating.
7-2 seems like a popular score.
Needless to say, no minor pro player is getting Prospect of the Week after this weekend.
