this brings up a point, if they want to leave him in the AHL for another year so he can continue to refine his rebound control, then it brings up a question. Do the Rampage even have a goalie coach down there to work with him? I forget.
And the more I think about it, it's idiotic to rule him out even before training camp. Maybe Santos just said that to the because they want to light a fire under his butt and make him want it even more, than to seem like they are kind of handing him the job. A possibility.
I don't think they would screw us out of him either, but then again we don't know if he will be back. As I also think Dov was only signed for this past season. We will find out soon enough. Next season is only like 4 months away.
No we do not have a full time goalie coach here. Robb Tallas is the goalie coach. Saw him and Skundland coach some of the "blsck aces" after Rampage practices. Tallas said he was suppose to come down here more during the season but there was really no point as Marky would either be called up or hurt.
I hate to agree with you on this last bit but it is kind of stupid to say this before training camp. Like others and you have said, we don't know how Jacob will do in training camp. But, at the same time I know of another team who did this samething except with a defensemen I know. Needless to say, he was never called up during the season when he should have been.
I know you all want to see Marky in the NHL but like I have been saying, he needs work on more things down here. I was happy to see that the last two games of the playoffs he was using his paddle more to cover some holes. He still wasn't really using his paddle in front of him, he was using it more on the sides of the net. Still, that is an improvement from earlier in the season.
Like I said earlier in my post, we shall wait and see what happens next season. Hopefully both teams can go even further no matter who is on either team.
