About Kilger now its totally different, the guy is big and fast, that's all, he does'nt have any hockey sense and totally lack of agility! Now if you believe Kilger should have done better than he did offensively, this just confirm your lack of knowledge of the game! Stop your ******** plz, you look like a clown!

Higgins is a Mike Fisher clone and I say that as a complement this guy is one of the most underrated players in the league.

Actually Cammalleri is definitely the same man, he was even better. He played a more matured game and after his first recall he scored 8 goals in 13 games. The Kings traded for Straka, Cammalleri demoted to the 4th line, suddenly less quality ice-time because of Straka, next Cammalleri was fighting a personal slump and he went straight back to Manchester. I expect a permanent spot for him in next year's lineup.

Kyle Wellwood finished #1 in rookie scoring.

I don't see how Higgins is #1 in scoring...

Read Montreal's first sentence a little more carefully

"Chris Higgins is the top rookie scorer in the AHL based on points per game of the top 10 scorers."

The AHL ends it's season next next weekend, as the Dogs play 2 more games. Higgins most likely won't catch 1st, but it's great to see not only having one prospect in the top scoring, but two. Higgins and Perezhogin have had a truely exceptional rookie season. Congrats to them!
:mad: :mad:

We had a third guy who was traded to the Rangers for an actor that happened to score a whopping 1 goal, 2 assists in TWELVE games. This actor also has played in 4 playoff games and was a factor in 2 and a NON-factor in 2. If he does not re-sign then we got CHUMPED but good in that trade as I can assure you Balej will score more than 3 points for the Rangers.

Maybe Kovalev will use this DISASTER to light a fire under his butt and lead Montreal to a comeback, but he has done nothing the last 2 years to inspire confidence. Time will tell.

We should just be pleased that we have decent prospects for once...does anyone want to go back over the drafts we had in the 90's? Don't cause it's depressing. No disrespect to Jason Ward, but we took him ahead of Marian Hossa for freak's sake. And don't get me started on the mid 90's...

As for Balej for Kovalev...time will tell, but I was pumped that we even had a prospect to trade period. Pulling off a deal like that shows we have good depth cause Gainey isn't going to just trade our only prospect for a rent-a-player. I hope Balej does well but you develop prospects so you have flexibility like that. Let's face it, we're not turning over six guys a year from the farm so guys are bound to go one way or the other.
