Don't know all the details, but he slashed the goalie and attacked a defenseman according to this article...

I like this kid more everytime that I hear about him.

McSorley 33 04-29-2005 09:41 PM

I've read some go stuff on another site about him through other hockey fans. He sounds like the real deal the only thing though was I guess that Cromier kid from Pheonix killed him in a fight. The guy had 30-40 pounds on him though. Neilson has had a bad year fighting from what I've read, but it has been said that he has mono. The guy's only 205 and he needs to lift weights. Hope to see him in Manchester.

He's still young and not a heavy, but he is more than willing to take on the heavies. At worst think of him as a Jeff Cowan, at best, Chris Simon.

No way will Eric replace Flinn as the Kings enforcer. He's only 6'1 205. I'd like to see them both play. He's just not big enough for an enforcer these days.

Who said he's going to replace Flinn? And in case you haven't noticed, Cowan is our enforcer. AM doesn't play guys who can't skate a regular shift.

I agree...I see Neilson as more of an agitator, a la Sean Avery....

Yes, Cowan is more than willing to go, you can check out his fight card on www.hockeyfights.com. Also, it would be great to see Cowan, Flinn, Neilson and avery playing on any given night. Damn, just think of that mix and then through in Karlsson. To replace Ian with Cowan was a good move although I love Ian.

I think it would be more accurate to say that Cowan will play in lieu of a real enforcer.

I Heart Neilson.

Well put GM.

He may not replace Flinn, but the Kings may have to rethink their plans regarding Flinn as an "enforcer" if he can't get healthy and stay healthy. He was out last season for a while with an assortment of fight-related injuries, and he was out for the vast majority of this season with an achilles tendon problem (injury, surgery, reinjury, etc.).

I think next season Flinn has to show he can make it through an entire season as an asset to the organization or he may be put on the block sooner rather than later.

McSorley 33 05-02-2005 05:52 PM

I still have hope for him though. Last season Flinn got his face broken ( no joke). What do you expect, it happens, he's a fighter and a damn scary one at that. He's on the roster on LaKings.com, so i believe he's already there. It would be nice to see Eric at Manchester this up coming season and eventually with the Kings. Ryan, when healthy is a great fighter, regardless of what people say about him this season. When he was called up 2-3 years ago, he did great.

That was sort of my point: he has to prove he can stay healthy for the Kings to maintain interest in their investment. I haven't heard anything derogatory regarding him this season. Heck, he hasn't been on the ice enough to generate much gossip other than interest in when he's going to come back. He had some sterling moments this season. Especially memorable was his pounding on the Baby B's Thompson after Gleason tooled him up first. The linesman was escorting Thompson to his bench and he charged the Monarchs bench right towards Flinn. Flinn just finished the job Gleason started, right over the dasher. Thompson was down on the ice in no time. Flinn later acknowledged that he probably shouldn't have pounded Thompson from the bench. However, what was he to do?

Anyway, here's hoping he gets his body healthy and makes a strong come back next season.

Reaper45 05-02-2005 07:22 PM

Yeah this year is a make or break one for Flinn I think. I do believe that the Kings are committed to him, but he needs to stay healthy....

I be happy if any of the Kings or Monarchs can stay healthy. I sometimes wonder about the condition of the players in the organization. It always seems that a fan favorite or key player is on IR or should be.

I dont wonder about the players, I wonder about the staff taking care of them.....

Ziggy Stardust 05-07-2005 04:15 PM

Well, they did replace their old strength/conditioning coaches last season and still had the same results.

Yeah, it's tough...Pete Demers has been with the Kings for a long time...I remember the Caps dumped their trainers after an injury-riddled season...

Yeah, maybe it's time for him to retire.....

Matt13 05-07-2005 05:06 PM

I dont think Demers actually trains them, he is more of a cut guy. They have had strength and conditioning coaches. In 01-02, I think the last name of the guy was Friend, they praised him, after 02-03 they fired him.

McSorley 33 05-08-2005 07:12 PM

I was reading on some other sites that Eric was hurt or he had something wrong with him all season. Does anyone know what?
