Dogs are quite a terrible team this year, but they do have some very interesting prospects. Good to see older guys like Pateryn being called up instead of Tinordi or Beaulieu.
It's interesting in a way.

Take Gallagher for instance. On the Dogs, quite a few people wondered if his point production in Vancouver would ever translate on a bigger scale. When he wasn't producing as much in Hamilton, people started to worry. However, once he made the jump to the NHL, things changed. Top 3 in NHL scoring, tied for 1st in +/- and leader in game-winning goals - all in the rookie category, by the way.

It's not very telling about a player's ability based on his performance in Hamilton. Gallagher is a prime example of that and over time, the same will be said for players like Pateryn, Tinordi, Beaulieu, etc.. Hell, even Dumont looked great last night.
