Because of an overall shortage in O/A period let alone quality ones I have no problem

inviting Czinder and Braithwaite to camp,before deciding to keep 1 or both

Czinder was one of the most improved players last year going from 2 goals to 15 and th

then adding 2 in 4 games in the playoffs

He does play well off the boards similar to what Ritchie does with Niagara

and because the cycle game is in these days it suits his game

Admittedly I would like him to play tougher and I know the Spits would like him to be


As for Braithwaite he is a serviceable D-man,while he has been a minus player career

wise all his teams have beem minus teams so its tough to pin it on him alone

D-men are a commodity not to be taken lightly
