The team is pretty much done, the vets won't give their all out there when they know they are in, in the previous years we had open spots available and had great competition in the preseason, not this time...the team is known, it's basically getting ready for the real thing in 16 days. At this point, all the injured players should rest and be ready for October 10th, let the Hamilton players get some ice time with the CH jersey, it must be very cool for them.
I agree with you, I don't care about losing. But what will getting blown out help teach our young players? Or what will it allow management to assess? It's best for everyone if the roster we ice is competitive with our opponents. Tonight's could be, but I'm not overly enthused by it. Still, we'll see what guys like Chipchura, D'Agostini, and White can do.
