I think Ilkka Heikkinen has a real shot to make this team.
2 good years of pro hockey in the SM-Liiga. Probably the 3rd best league in Europe.
A cheap cap hit of 875.
And a lefty shot, considering one of Gilroy, Sauer, and Potter should also make it and are all right shots.
Granted I have seen little, but from what I have read Heikkinen is solid.
Barring further moves I believe our 5/6 guys come out of these 4, just have a funny feeling IH will be one of them.
I think Sangs spends another year in the A, and unless MDZ blows them away I think he goes back to the O so he can hopefully dominate.
The whole blog really went downhill.
No offense to Rick and his sidekicks over there, but Sam was a much more entertaining blogger.
It sucks maybe that Lohud doesn't use their funds to send them on the road with the team or whatever, but the only time they ever have news is from other news. They're never a direct source. And if I want opinions, I can ask anyone.
100% agree, i do not like carpiniello at all. he's basically only good for negativity and skepticism on almost everything he writes. skepticism is important, don't get me wrong... but when it gets to the point where it literally got hard to read his blog because of his doomsday take on things i gotta call spades and say it got ******.
but of course don't ever begin to mention any type of criticism towards rick or his blog ruining assistants on lohud (even the well-worded, constructive type..you know the kind that professionals appreciate) because his army of drones will be so quick to jump all over you, you'll be convinced you're a serial rapist and small animal murderer before you know what hit you..
carp's good for what he provides, anecdotes and some solid history of the rangers beat. unfortunately he has nowhere near the access sam weinman, zipay, or gross so his blog will fall short of those reads.
