For those watching on NHL Network, how does Hickey look?

he's solid. Him and Voynov are looking interesting, like the 'Narchs best defenseman *along with Piskula*

Forwards - Lewis and Cliche have real potential in this organization. Both are 2-way, decent size and solid skaters. They were out there in key defensive situations. I see Lewis being in Handzus' spot down the line.

Defence - Voynov was the best of the bunch. Plays a mature game, knows how to handle a puck, good first pass, a couple years younger than Hickey. And speaking of Hickey, kind of quiet tonight. He does jump into the play on occasion. I'm not a big fan of his to be brutally honest.

Bernier did his job, looked pretty good actually. Made a few big saves, especially one at the end of the 2nd period with a glove save. It's going to be a real battle in training camp next season.

Monarchs win 3 - 1 tonight but Portland beat Providence.

First time in franchise history, no playoffs for the Monarchs this year

Hopefully Deano doesn't see the need to blame Morris and fire him.

Powerplay coming up

edit - oh and Preissing has looked pretty bad as well
I didn't really think Preissing was bad at all, neither was Moulson for that matter. Interesting note, as soon as they announced that Portland had won (effectively eliminating the narchs) at the arena, Moulson answered right off the faceoff with a goal. So instead of letting down after finding out the bad news they responded by increasing their lead. Moulson also had a really nice assist on Lewis's shorthanded goal as he was patient and slid it under the defenders stick on a two-on-one right to Lewis who tapped it in.

Hickey was a little quiet, played a fairly solid defensive game, almost turned the puck over on the blueline while on the powerplay but recovered and got it over to Voynov. He took some hits from some big sharks players without coughing up the puck and drove to the net looking for offensive rebounds a couple times. Altogether played as good as any player could without generating any scoring chances.

This was my first real look at Voynov (outside crappy internet streams of wjc games), and I was impressed. Solid in his own zone, and a great partner for Hickey.

The goal Bernier gave up was on a deflection on the PP, so no real fault to him. Had only really one big save, but a couple of other good ones. His only hick-up came when he tried to save a quick shot standing up and it dropped to his side and he lost sight of it, it was quickly cleared by Voynov though.

Lewis looked pretty strong on the puck, him and Moulson were the best forwards tonight.

Parse had a nice finish on his goal, 3-on-1 for the Monarchs. Parse took a shot, got his own rebound and put it around the shark goalie.

Westgarth was a little dissapointing, two relatively stupid penalties (Ivanans reminiscent) and not very much enforcing.

Andrew Campbell looked pretty good to me. Nice reach and defensive coverage.
Lewis should replace Armstrong as 4th line center next season
Bernier was good.
Hickey was okay

That's awesome. Congrats on that!

With that, this thread will be un-stuck as the Monarchs season has come to an end. Thanks to everyone for contributing info on the team and updates on progress throughout the season.

So Trevor Lewis steps up his game and ends the season with 20 goals AND Thomas Hickey steps right in and puts up 7 points in 7 games.

Captain Ron continues to bat 1.000!

Wow.......scoring 20 goals in the AHL for Lewis and Hickey picking up 7 points at the end of the season.......you sure proved me wrong.

When these guys actually start producing numbers like this at the NHL level I will gladly eat a huge dish of crow.
