Kanko already has a goal and 2 assists in his first game with Kitchener (Kitchener's 2nd game of the young season) and the game is still on-going.

Check that, Windsor just won in OT.

Ryan Munce gave up 2 goals on 32 shots in his team's 5-2 win today. He is now 1-1-0 with ~2.50 GAA in two games.

Petr Kanko had 2 more assists and a fighting major tonight in his team's 4-2 win. He now has 1 goal and 4 assists in two games. He's on a pace for 170 points this season! :D

Both Rooneem's and Rome's games are still in progress. I'll provide an update later when the games are complete.

Kanko could have had a goal and an assist - classic Kanko breakaway but passed it to the other winger who had a clearer shot. He was named the game's second star as well.

Ad for the other two...

Rooneem has a goal and an assist in two games for Calgary. He's wearing the "A" in only his first full season with Calgary.

Rome... well let's see... The boring stuff first. In two games for Swift Current he has an assist. Now the good stuff. In SC's win over Red Deer, Rome had a fighting major, a game misconduct, and a checking from behind penalty. In SC's 8-0 loss to Medicine Hat, Rome had an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty, an instigator, two game misconducts, and a fighting penalty (in a game where all hell broke loose). That's 51 PIMs in 2 games. At his current pace, Rome will surpass his PIM total from last year by... oh... the third week of the season!

(sung in classic Lagwagon style) All aboard the Rome-wagon!

Aaron Rome had 1 assist and only a 2 minute roughing penalty in SC's 5-0 win over Regina.

Ya, well, doesn't mean it will all come true. Just that you shouldn't be suprised if Hogeboom or Tambellini ends up as a finalist. Besides, there are usually like 10 "finalists" before they narrow it down to the final 3 (kind of like what college football does with the Heisman where 6 or 7 are official "finalists" but only 3 get invited to the awards show).

He's always had his fair share of fights (123 PIM last year excluding playoffs). He doesn't back down when he's challenged, and his style of play brings it on.

David A. Rainer
10-04-2003, 11:33 PM
To finish the remainder of the scores for Oct. 5:

Tambellini did not factor in on the scoring in Michigan's 5-3 win. He did pick up an elbowing to the head penalty and served the penalty for too many men on the ice.

I guess Boyle had picked up an assist on Rooney's goal, but it was taken away. Boyle had skated on an all freshman 4th line of Pineault-Boyle-Rooney.

Connor James was held scoreless again as his team finished in 1st for the Lefty McFadden Invitational. St. Lawrence finished 2nd, Ohio St. 3rd and Miami bringing up the rear.

Brady Murray had an assist on Bochenski's goal, his first point as a collegian. Murray was centering the top line alongside forwards Parise and Bochenski.

I'll add a few things about Gabinet, because I saw the Maverick Stampede. This guy is one tough nut to crack not to mention he's needs to show a bit more control out there. He was a thorn in the Badgers side all night. Arguably one of the more effective UNO players tonight....defensively OR offensively. However, he made some costly mistakes, namely retailiatory penalties that earned him a few trips to the sin bin.

BTW, if you want to read my observations from the Stampede tourney, please visit the Maverick Stampede thread on the NCAA board.

OK, here's what we got for a full slate of games this Saturday.

Dave Steckel got another goal (his 4th in 4 games) in a 3-1 win over Notre Dame.

Marty Guerin got another assist while Hogeboom and Tambellini were shut out in Michigan's 2-1 win over Miami to split the two game series.

Nathan Marsters gave up 5 goals on 24 shots (ouch!) in RPI's 5-2 loss.

Ryan Murphy put in an empty-netter and Boyle was held scoreless again in BC's 4-1 win.

Joel Andresen and Mike Gabinet were held scoreless in UNO's 7-3 loss to Minnesota. UNO scored the first 3 goals of the game just to watch Minnesota come storming back with 7 unanswered goals of their own.

Colorado College, Denver U, and North Dakota played EXHIBITION games again. Something worth noting: Matt Zaba got the start in net for Colorado College, giving up 1 goal (and had an assist!) to the US U18 Developmental Team.

an email from a friend of mine in Columbus:

OSU came back tonight and beat Notre Dame 3-1. Betz was in net and looked good. Buckeyes had 39 shots on goal and finally pulled away on Bittner's goal in the third. Steckel added an insurance goal late. He broke his stick, raced back to the bench and ambled back to the crase just in time to knock in a rebound. That was cool to watch. Give an assist to the guy on the bench who gave him a new stick. The defense played better. The power play was awful. It was a good win though. Less than 2,000 people showed up on a night when the Blue Jackets had their home opener and the football team was on the road in Wisconsin.

Nathan Marsters gave up another 4 goals in 23 shots. Two straight losses for Marsters to open the season. That does not bode well for the remainder of his season. Fortunately, both losses were non-conference.

Regardless of whether they were conference or not, it was still a regular season game and it counts in the standings. That said, RPI (who finished near the bottom of the ECAC last season) was playing a very good BU team. Furthermore, RPI came into this season with two glaring problems that will (hopefully) be improved.....Team Offence and Goaltending. I'm not really all that surprised that Marsters gave up 4 goals on 23 shots. RPI struggled last season in net and it wasn't helped by the fact that they got little support from the blueliners. Since this weekend was the opening weekend of RPI's season, we could only hope that Marsters (and his netminder partner Kevin Kurk) not only are able to improve but get the help they need in front of them.

David A. Rainer
10-13-2003, 10:46 AM
Regardless of whether they were conference or not, it was still a regular season game and it counts in the standings.

There is no way that RPI is going to get an at large bid to the NCAA tourny. So the only thing that matters is the conference tourny for which seeding (I believe) is based on conference record. Therefore, although no one likes to lose, the conference games are most important to RPI.

And I only mean it does not bode well for Marsters not necessarily because Marsters is playing poorly (especially because most RPI games would be 10-2 if not for him), but because last season RPI did not start well with Marsters in goal (granted, I've never seen one team turn over the puck right in front of their own net more often than RPI) and Fridgen lost a lot of confidence in him - sitting him in favor of Kurk more often and more willing to yank him in the games he was in. Often, a coach will make a change in goal just to make a change and shake up the team. I'm only hoping that that doesn't happen again. But it is only two games and RPI still has a full season to come around.

Boyle SHOULD have had two other goals AND another assist. He was also being totally ***** in front of the net and didn't get a break from the refs all night. It is his size that will cause the prejudice. The refs will simply firgure he can take it and let him get totally beaten like he did last night. IF this kid score 10 goals this season and stays healthy I will be one of his biggest supporters. He isn't comfortable using his monster size yet (my opinion) but he is a fluid skater who uses his reach to poke check well. Once he matures and learns how to use his assets he could be a very very good young player. I spent the entire game focusing on his play and was duly impressed with him. He needs a couple of years in the NCAA but I think he might be the real thing. He sure has good hands. Thanks for the awsome reports as usual DFA. You as they say ROCK sir.

I just finished watching Tanbs game. He is a very good skater with solid speed and soft hands. He also isn't as good as Cammo was at that level (of course I am basing this on two games so far so it isn't totally credible) at any of his game. I think he will spend two more years at least in NCAA before making the jump. When you watched Cammo play you knew he was ready to move above the level he was playing at, Tambs looked very good in the first game I saw him play and very average last night. In fact, I would say that Brady looked about as good if I were to only base this opinion on last nights play. Tambs is the real deal, he is just going to take longer to bring it to us then Cammo did.

I'm going to give these video threads a try. If they are popular, I'll keep them. If they die down, I'll unsticky them and put the prospect threads back up. In the meantime, the updates that Spongebob and I give on these threads will have to suffice to keep them near the top.

Remember back to his prospect camp when Am and DT both said that Hogeboom had NHL skills and that if he had decided to stay with the team that he would get a real good look at making the club? I do. I got a chance to watch one of his games this weekend and without a doubt, this kid is the real deal. (of course, based on my own opinion and no, I am not an NHL scout or anything like that) I would compare his game to a cross between Klatt and Kieth Tkatchuk. Now I am not saying that he is or will be anywhere near the scorer that TK is. I am saying that he plays with that type of aggression and makes the same type of an impact in front of the other teams net that TK did when he was younger. I would say that the old addage of "scoring is the first thing to go" will more than likely be true and we will end up with a cross between Lappy and Ebell but is that so bad? I don't think so. He led the NCAA in PP goals last year and is having another good year so far this year. He plays a very hard nosed game and is quietly becomming one of the most respected players in NCAA hockey. A great pick for us who has solid NHL third line with the ability to serve in the top six when needed written all over him. He is a real gamer.

Thanks for the updates Mr Bob.

Looks like Kanko has really picked it up of late after his non hockey injury. Does anyone think he will be anything more than a third line tough guy and at this point who would we all rather have, Kanko or Tambellini?

Personal opinion (I have only seen a few college games and some preseason for Kanko). I would rather have Tambellini he has a shot at being a good top-6. Kanto looks like a energy guy with some skill on the 3rd line.

Both are usefull for a hockey team though with Tambellini having a higher chance of making the NHL.

Thats two goals and two assists for Boyle now. Pretty impressive for when you consider the team he is on and his age. He is starting to look allot more comfortable in front of the net. I bet that next year he will be something amazing to watch. Keep it up kid.

I spoke to a freind of my kids who goes to B and he said that he has a class with Boyle. He hasn't talked to him but says he is a nice guy who is truly a giant. He says he looks like he must weight 300 pounds! Of course, that is a guess by an 18 year old but I take it as he means that Boyle looks like he isn't just tall but big as well.

I also heard that Hogeboom is having a really great season so far and that he has been a dominant two way player. He is scoring well but he is hitting everything in sight and having an all star season. (if only)

The Kings definitely have more college prospects than in past years and more than other teams. But then other teams have far more Swede and Russian prospects than the Kings. There is a draft strategy of taking college players in middle to late rounds because they can develop for four years before you have to worry about signing them. And in those four years, you can filter out those who will make it and those who won't.

It could be regarded as a good thing because college and juniors prospects learn the NA style of game where as euro prospects typically need some time to get acclimated to the NA style. College hockey is less physical than juniors and emphasizes skilled play over power (which is why Manchester would be a better litmus test for players like Steckel and Boyle than college because of their power game). Relative to other teams, the Kings probably have the best crop of college players. The top player generally leave after 3 years because of CBA advantages that create contractual leverage if they leave after 3 years (baseball has similar advantages after 3 years). Occassionally, you might see a player go pro after 1 or 2 years (Kesler with Vancouver).

I think since Dave Taylor took over. Prior to DT, I cannot remember another GM that had any kind of a drafting philosophy. The first thing DT did when he took over was emphasize building from the draft. It's not a new strategy as other teams have been doing it for many years, but it is new for the Kings.

I'm trying to think of college players on the Kings (or have been on the Kings recently): obviously Cammy came out of Michigan, Chartrand, Corvo, Norton, and Aaron Miller are all out of the college ranks. Reinprect, Rob Blake, Jason Blake, Smolinski, Rasmussen, and Craig Johnson are some recent Kings that came out of the college (note that these players were not necessarily drafted by the Kings or even drafted at all).

It will still be a couple of years before you see the fruit of DT's drafting of college players. As it stands now, I think only Cammy and Corvo were drafted by DT and are currently on the Kings. What you usually get out of the college ranks is a consistent supply of good/solid players. However, the true superstars of the league tend to come out of the Juniors ranks.

punchy1
11-12-2003, 09:52 AM
Stauber came from the draft as well as a few others but I believe they were prior to DT so probably not relevant to the topic.

I think you have put it perfectly in that DT is a gm with a phylosophy and that the team hasn't had that with one exception that I can see. The team that was assembled prior to the trade of Wayne Gretzky was one that was comprised largely of Kings draft picks and I feel that greatest assemblage of talented young players in our history.

Luc Robittiale (sp, sorry, I have a very foggy memory for spelling)
Jimmy Carson
Bernie Nichols
Jay Wells
Steve Dueschene (prior to him becomming an awful player he was an outstanding young defenceman for the Kings)
just to name a few. I believe that was assembled by Pat Quinn when he was our GM but I could be wrong. (I would be going by remembering what I have read as it is a year or so before my time as a fan) Certainly since 89-90 we haven't had anything close to a drafting style and now we have one of the best in the league. There are so many great young players that, while our college prospects are fantastic, the rest of our prospects from the other leagues are just as great. I think that the fact that DT went to Clarkson (i believe) university has helped in his trying to develope college players and I would certainly say that we are the best team at finding allot of college players that have a shot.

I thought you might want to hear an update on Matt Zaba:

Colorado College's starting goaltender has come down with mononucleosis. He is expected to miss the next 7 games (8 total, including last night's game against Wisconsin). Based on comments from the coach, I think Matt will play in 6 of the next 7 games. Third string walk-on freshman Chris Kawano may get one of the non-conference games against Findlay or the U.S. Air Force Academy.

Matt is stepping into a very difficult situation. In addition to their top scorer being out with a broken thumb, their captain and best 2-way forward Colin Stuart is out with a seperated shoulder. He also has broken ribs, but was playing fine with them until the shoulder. Their top freshman Brandon Polich is out with a lacerated spleen, and isn't expected back for a while. The team just got hit with a flu bug that got most of the team last week. Then 2 nights ago, their assistant coach and recruiting coordinator Norm Bazin was in a very serious car accident while on a recruiting trip. He survived multiple surgeries, but is still in critical condition.

For Matt to come in and play solid hockey to earn a tie in a hostile WCHA road game was very impressive. Hopefully Norm will pull through and the team can get back to focusing on hockey. Until we know that Norm is out of the woods, the team isn't going to be as focused on hockey as they normally would be.

I could give you an update on Richard Petiot, but he's always the same - extremely solid, dependable, and laying out the big hits. He's just the kind of guy who suits up every night and plays a simple but very effective game on the blue line. Matt's role has suddenly changed, so that's why I posted about him instead of Richard.

Nathan Marsters stopped 35 of the 36 shots he faced while leading RPI to a 2-1 win over #5 Saint Cloud St. Marsters has been very solid so far this year and looks to have regained his old form.

Matt Zaba started both games in Colorado College's series with Wisconsin (see CCTigers post above for more info) and he remains undefeated against them. However, he remains winless also as the two teams skated to a 2-2 tie, the 2nd such score in as many nights. Richard Petiot was held scoreless.

Brady Murray tallied a goal and an assist in UND's 6-2 win over Denver U. The #1 ranked Fighting Sioux went into Denver and swept the #8 ranked Pioneers in convincing fashion, proving once again that they are the most impressive team of this young season (although Boston College might hsve something to say about it). Connor James was held goalless, including getting walled on a penalty shot, but did chip in an assist.

Marty Guerin had a goal and an assist and Greg Hogeboom chipped in an assist in Miami's 4-3 win. After starting the season 1-4-1, the Red Hawks have stormed back with a 7-2-1 record since.

If my maths are right then some people have some early crow pie to eat.

I have been reading through past threads here and at another Los Angeles Kings sight and it seems that there was a majority of people on both boards who seem to have thought that Steckle was a *bust* and that Brady Murray was a never will be.

I have Steckle at
14gp 8goals 4 assists for 12 points and on his teams page they have him listed as the teams top defencive forward. He is having a great year for certain.

Brady Murray, was thought of as merely being picked up as through the course of nepetism is doing a cracker job at proving his detractors wrong.
11gp 5 goals 11 assists for 16 points. He is a freshman and isn't his teams number one centerman. I love the teams logo. The blackhawks in green. Catching.

Greg Hogeboom has been said to have lead all college atheletes in Power Play Goals last year and I have read on these boards that he was very well liked by both Dave Taylor and Andy Murray. I can see why.
16gp 8 goals 11 assists for 19 pints. WOW!

Tambellini, 12gp? 9goals 3 assists for 12 points. Stunner.

Thanks to DFA for the stats as I only borrowed the numbers from him and added the extra. These are only our American prospects as well and I am leaving out some right smart beauties as well.

Cheers to Dave Taylor and his crew for giving us so many great young players.

i remember something from draft time last summer about brady murray having the talent to make the nhl, but lacking in size. the article (or whatever) implied that he would fall just because of his size, and that if he had four inches and fifty pounds more he would be a first or second rounder.

Well said! He will make it in this league, no questions. He's been at our prospect camp since he was fifteen. And he's been taunting everyone there since day one. He has incredible hands and vision, and everywhere he's played, he has produced above expectations. I'm so over the size issue. Kanko is 5'9 (maybe), Avery is 5'9, Cammy is 5'9 and they play with more balls than our big guys. I'd take any of these guys over some big cream puff, that doesn't know how to use their size!

King's 5th round pick Brady Murray: 11gp, 5 goals, 10 assists = 15 pts.

even though it might hypothetically be illegal, if someone lucky enough to have satellite tv were to tape one or more of those games and then either make copies of or cirulate that tape to a few of us at hf, that would, hypothetically speaking of course, rock.

Brian Boyle's performance tonight. I caught the BU/BC game earlier this evening. While Boyle didn't get on the score sheet, he did play quite well. Here are some observations on his play:

He uses his 6'7" frame quite well, particularly in front of the opposing net. He excels at being the "main screen" (for a lack of a better term) for the BC Eagles when attacking/shooting at the opposition's net. He protects the puck very well and makes excellent use of that long reach of his. He's getting more confident in his overall offensive game, taking more shots and finding those open spots on the ice. Where he still needs work is his physical game. At 6'7/220 one would think that Boyle would use that to his advantage as far as checking goes, but doesn't.

12-06-2003, 10:24 AM
Thanks for the recap on Boyle's play, I didn't get to see the game last night but as a Kings fan I'm excited to see how Boyle develops. It sounds like you hit the nail right on the head, his overall game is pretty good and will only get better as he adapts to a higher level of competetion, and we're all hopeing his physical play will increase as well. Everyone knows that the road to the NHL for Boyle will be a bit longer than we'd like, but man when he gets there he will be a perfect compliment to the likes of Frolov, Brown etc.

With his spectacular performance against the #1 team in the WCHA, Matt Zaba has taken over the #1 spot in all of D1 college hockey with a 1.35 gaa, and is tied for #3 nationally with a .945 saves %. Matt won the national rookie of the month award (http://wcha.ocsn.com/sports/m-hockey/spec-rel/120503aaa.html) for November. He's also #1 in both gaa and saves % in league play (1.36 and .948).

This kid is spectacularly unflappable. He has played in the road in some tough buildings, and he looks like a veteran out there. CC's All-American goaltender is almost back from mononucleosis, and may travel to Alaska for the upcoming series against UAA. My guess is that he's not quite ready and will backup Matt in Alaska. When the team gets back from break, CC's coach is going to have a tough task choosing a goaltender. Either he will sit an All-American or the top statistical goaltender in the nation.

He's a 20 year old freshman. He was probably the best goalie in the BCHL last year and was named playoff MVP. I think he was rated as the third best goalie recruit this offseason. Before McElhinney went down with mono, Zaba was 2-0-0 with a 1.50GAA, so I'd say he's just continuing what he's been doing all year.

Saprykin Fan said that Zaba completely impressed everyone in training camp so it is no surprise that he's doing well. CC also has a great defense.

That would be fine with me. If he leaves college and then needs another year or so in the AHL before he gets his pro legs then that would still leave him a young man with plenty of game left in him. He has been playing well as a senior and he had a good year last year too. He was told by the team (la) to work on his deffencive game and that they saw him as a third line monster (or so I read) so he did and now this year he is trying to put it all together. Thanks for the update on how he looked at camp, I hope that he can keep on his slow developement like bigger blokes tend to do and then become our top stopper in two or three years. Massive.

i've never seen karlsson play a full game, but over the summer there was a link floating around here that had a video of jens drilling some guy in a swedish league game. jens absolutely crushed this guy into the boards, and i believe he got a game suspension for it. i don't think the hit was dirty, ie no boarding-from-behind-neck-spasming-wwe-raw kind of hit, just clean and super hard. if anyone remembers the link, repost that bad boy.

Aaron Rome was traded from SC to Moose Jaw of the WHL. Doesn't mean much - Rome will finish out the remainder of the season in Moose Jaw as an overager and then hopefully finally sign with the Kings.

Actually, as it turns out, Aaron's brother Ashton plays for Moose Jaw. I guess he wanted to finish things out playing alongside his bro.

"The Swift Current Broncos traded defenceman 20 year old defenceman Aaron Rome (Nesbitt, MB) and 19 year old forward Aaron Richards (Saskatoon, SK) to the Moose Jaw Warriors for 17 year old defenceman Michael Busto (Burnaby, BC), 20 year old forward Derek Krestanovich (Surrey, BC) and 19 year old goaltender Blake Grenier (Edmonton, AB)."

I thought that Rome would become a UFA if he doesn't sign with the Kings due to his age and that he is playing as an overager, similar to Colorado drafting Branko Radivojevic and Phoenix signing him as a free agent :dunno:

You could be right. The clause is 8.6(e), which states:

"(e) Except as otherwise provided in this Section, a claimed player unsigned on June 2 next succeeding his draft shall be removed from the Reserve List of the Club that claimed him."

I don't know what happens after he is removed from the reserve list - back into the draft or free to sign with anyone? I guess it would be free to sign because I don't remember that many prospects going back into the draft. But I do remember Papineau going back into the draft. Which is it? :dunno: Edit - upon further research, I think a player from juniors (I emphasize juniors because there is a certain situation when college players MUST go back into the draft) goes back into the draft at his own option (if he still meets the other eligibility requirements for the draft). So Rome could either be free to sign with anyone or opt back into the draft.

BTW - he wouldn't become a completely UFA. He still can only sign a contract subject to the Entry Level Compensation program ("the rookie cap") of 9.1.

I caught both games of the Minnesota/Colorado College series this weekend. Here's some observations:

Matt Zaba: He didn't have all that great of a game earlier tonight (Saturday). However, I did see a few encouraging things about him. He excellent at playing the puck. Makes nice outlet passes to his forwards and defensemen. Also, he loves to shoot it. He's got a good glove and possesses some good reflexes. He's a bit slow on his lateral movements though. The most glaring weakness he had in tonight's game was controlling his rebounds. He had some real problems in that area. BTW, he didn't play in last night's game.

Richard Petiot: A very physical and lanky Dman. He laid alot of hits on the Minnesota players this weekend. He could use some bulking up. He plays with some passion but he needs to be able to keep his emotions in check. He's a very good skater and excellent with the puck. He seems to like jumping into plays and created some excellent scoring chances for CC, especially in tonight's game.

BTW, if you want to read more on how these two guys played tonight, please check out my Game Notes (1/10): Minnesota vs. Colorado College (http://www.hfboards.com/showthread.php?postid=695573) thread over on the NCAA boards.

He looked pretty good in the weekend series, especially in the Friday night game. He got knocked around pretty good by the Minnesota defense, but showed some tremendous resilience.

He was playing on a line with Zach Parise and Quinn Fylling (Friday) and Drew Stafford (Saturday). Bochenski was playing with Colby Genoway and Chris Porter in both games.

The line combo on Friday generated more offensive chances IMO. However, he made a nice play that led to David Lundbohm's goal in the Saturday game.

;) no mate ;) I ;) were serious;) I mean ;) after all ;) i were attacked pretty well for suggesting he ;) had some trade value in a thread that asked us all to take a shot at what we would try and do if we were Dave Taylor. I stated what I see as his having solid value and how he could become a very effective third or fourth line player with allot of upside (as none of us know what will happen with any prospect truly. The best we can do is guess what we believe might happen based on what we read and hear or might see against others of thier own talent. Timmonen is an excellent example. As is Lehoux.) and was told how wrong I were and how he hasn't got the grapes and that.

Now, i didn't see you or anyone else questioning whether or not Navigator or anyone who didn't agree with my opinion were Kings fans or to that point, I didn't see anyone else put any real time into making a proposal that gave thier reasoning behind thier ideas if at all.

I edited this as it were too much whinning for my taste.

Oh geez. You weren't attacked. If you were attacked by me, you'd know it. ;)

I stated Steckel had no trade value. And he doesn't because AT BEST he becomes a solid 4th line forward or 3rd line grinder. But ya know what, every organization already has tons of those players in their systems. And when they are traded, they're called "throw-ins" for a reason.

And Steckel won the CCHA Players of the Week (only for his conference and not all of college hockey) because of the goal and two assists he had against Bowling Green. It's always impressive when someone gets 3 points in a game and I don't want to take that away from him. But let's put it in prospective: 1.) Bowling Green is a TERRIBLE team; 2.) those are the only points he's had in the last FIVE games; and 3.) his goal was a jam-in on a rebound.

I werent talking about you mate, why did you feel I were?

That said, my point stands mate. Nobody said that you or Nav weren't kings fans for what you said about Steckel yet here we are. This is an accumulative thing for me so, again, I know that none care about my position here and though I have stated what I feel might be the reason why, I am truly done with it. You I will respond to on this as these are your boards and are always a decent enough bloke with me. Bugger the rest.

I mean, could what I wrote, even on the wildly outside chance that it were taken as my trashing him, which I have a hard time believing anyone would take as serious, do you see it as grounds to question my being a fan of the team? I mean really, that is my whole point. NOT what his value is mate. We talked about that and I stand by my opinion of Steckle and what I said. He *may* or not become an NHL third or fourth line talent. You pointed out his weaknesses as did some others and I accept them as valid opinions. I still stand by my own but, we are all just fans and I feel that none of what any of us say about anything to do with the game is of any more value, mine included, then anyone elses.

That is absolutely not the reason I wrote what I did here. I wrote what I did because I am tired of being the only poster here who, when posts something that isn't specifically in line with what the heavies here think get told where to get off when others are allowed to post opinion with relative certainty that they can have a civil debtate (like we did on Steckle) and not having whether they are or aren't a Kings fan brought up.

If it were *this one time* that I were dealt with in the same manner that a fan of another team would be, (tolerated but never accepted) of course I wouldn't say anything. The truth is that lately, if I post something it is approached like I dumped on everyone to do it by allot of the posters here when I would never treat them in like manner. I used that example as one of many I could have. One person asks what we would do if we were Dave. I wrote what I would try and do and my reasons and the rest of the thread is about how wrong I were. Of course, i said I were more than likely daft to start with but thats what it was. Instead of anyone else truly posting what they would do. The thread were an exercise in how wrong I am and why. Since this is becoming the norm I posted what I did above. Not to debate whether or not you attacked me, I never said you did (though I suppose you could draw that from my above post) and like I said, I considered that we had a solid debate about him. Others though, took my position as both laughable and a serious point of contention when all it was were the position of a Kiwi hockey fan who has yet to see the lad play.

If I were acting like I knew anything then of course, I would have it coming. Since I openly admit I don't and this is a sort of recent phenomenom I have to question why, although, as I said, I already know why. What pegs me is why nobody ever pm'd me about any of what were said and why, nobody ever simply asked me what I thought on it. Instead, it were simply accepted as fact. Well, it is untrue mate. I have tried to prove it and like I said, am done with it. Why should I bother. Not one ounce of respect were paid to me over it. Why would I have to do the same? Well, done for certain on the subject this time mate. I truly no longer care. This is a looney hockey fan site where we come to toss off about our favourite team. I don't bloody care what a few think of my nutter opinions. I just had to vent as it were getting old. All is fair now. For me anyways. No worries.

Good lord. I am the perfect ass. I DID read it as "I don't know about you being a Kings fan". God I am thick. Well, what can you say when you are proven to have been so totally wrong that you feel about as stupid as one can? I will say that I am truly sorry for acting so ginger and want to say I am sorry about what I wrote. I guess it is the result of a few things that have built up on the boards and in such, had me ready and waiting for the next thing to snap. I were that perverbial camel searching for that final straw.

Some of what I said does still stand. I am at my full up on being treated differently then others for what I feel is no true reason, but, I as usual went off half cocked and did over react and am sorry for that. (I read there are a pill for that now so I wouldn't worry about it happening again)

So, sorry again mates. Ugh, this is embarrasing, sort of.

OK Kings fans, finally caught an RPI game and gotta chance to see Marsters play. So here's some observations about him:

He's huge (6'4/200) and covers alot of net. He's good on low shots, plays his angles pretty well and has excellent lateral movement. He follows plays quite well too. His glove could use some work but where he's weakest IMO is on high shots and committing too early. I saw him in the Saturday night game versus Clarkson. He gotten beaten a couple of times high (even the ones that didn't go in), and on one play (I believe he was going up against Jay Latulippe, I think it was) he made the error of committing first. Fortunately the shot taken was wide, otherwise he would've gotten beaten.

BTW, if you want to read about how this game went (believe me, it's definitely worth reading about), I've got the game notes on this game posted over on the NCAA boards.

I wonder how Tambellini did today in Michigans 4-1 victory.

He played pretty well. He almost scored a goal just before the 2nd period ended, but didn't. I was quite impressed with the way Marty Guerin played for Miami-Ohio. Hogeboom wasn't bad but didn't do anything that really stood out. Michigan did a great job of containing the high powered RedHawks offense.

Powerhouse North Dakota came in at 20-5-3 overall tonight vs. Colorado College. The previous night, Colorado had McElhinney in goal and North Dakota rolled them, 5-2.

Zaba got the start tonight for Colorado and they were outshot by North Dakota, 33-16, yet beat them, 4-1, behind Zaba's play.

Heres the recap:

Its refreshing to know the Kings have a few excellent goalie prospects in Zaba, Munce and even Marsters. Marsters has turned it around and is playing his best hockey in this, his senior year.

Nope, not a goal...not even an assist, among the 8 goals!

http://www.uscho.com/box/index.php?date=20040214&vis=mu&home=um&gender=m

And, 2 of Miami of Ohio's top players are King draftees: Hogeboom and Marty Guerin and neither of them had a sinble point among MU's 5 goals!

Whats wrong with Tambellini? I hope he's nursing an injury or something, because he only has 18 points in 26 games! He had 45 points in 43 games as a Freshman last year, leading Michigan in scoring.

Friday night I was flipping back and forth from the Kings horrible game vs. the Sabres along with Miami vs. Michigan and North Dakota vs. Colorado College. I was really hoping to see some Kings and future Kings whoop some a$$, so as you guys know by now I was dissapointed.

Hogeboom looked real mediocore, it seemed to me like he just wasn't up for the challenge which could proboraly be said for the whole team. I liked what I saw in Marty Guerin who I was impressed with during the summer camp in LA. Guerin actually reminds me a bit of Dustin Brown although he doesn't have as much bite to his game.

It looked to me that Jeff Tambellini needs some rest or something, he just did not look sharp out there. He did get an assist on Michigans first goal but somethings definetly missing from his game, he had trouble receiving passes out there and wasn't able to use his creative skills to make things happen. The broadcasters were saying he needs a dirty goal and I couldn't agree more. I think this guy can be just as good as Zach Parise he just needs to get out of his streak.

Brady Murray looked good skating with ND's top line, one thing I think BM doesn't get recognized for is his toughness. There's been a couple times were I've seen him take some punishment before and after the whistles but he always gets right back up and is in the middle of the action exchanging punches.

Richard Petiot looked dam good skating with CC, and I know he's big but he looked like a monster on the blue line for his team. I was impressed with how much ground he was able to cover skating on the wide rinks. Richard handles the puck real well and was making some good hits out there.

Nothing spectacular to report, there were some positives but Friday the 13th wasn't good to the Kings organization.

Really? I thougtht that Gleason and Greb was the influxe of high level talent we will need in a few years. Not to mention that Lubo and Corvo are still in their mid-20's.

I keep hearing how Rome is to be a defensive d-man but how is it that he has so many points? Petoit with his 8 points seems to be more of a Norstrom type of guy. What is the real deal with Rome?

Note: I agree I hope we sign him a swell. Can't go wrong with to much defensive depth:)>

I wouldn't say that Marsters has had a GREAT season, but it's been great down the stretch. (FYI, earlier tonight Marsters gave up 5 goals on 25 shots then got yanked.....Dartmouth killed RPI 6-0 to force a 3rd and deciding game tomorrow). If the Kings do decide to sign him, I fully expect him to start either with Reading or Manchester. He's definitely not quite NHL ready.

Just my two cents.

I agree Marsters is most likely not NHL ready and you're right if he is signed the ECHL would be the best place for him. I think he's had an overall good season, and I trust DT and his boys will make the right decision as to weither or not to sign him. I know I would like to have Hauser under contract, this guy has been outstanding for Manchester.

First off, the good/bad news on the injury front. The good news is that Mark Rooneem is back and has been playing for the Hitmen the last few games. The bad news is that Connor James suffered a fractured right fibula on March 5th (this was noted on the main prospect board).
