Zaba's poor rebound control plus two bonehead penalties (Locke and Rissmiller) and its only 3-2 after the 1st... I hope Kenny G gets a grip on da boys...

Corey Potter... what on earth happened to him??? Did he forget how to play hockey/defense?

Did Locke ever get a shot in the NHL, or is he the Jason Krog type?

I think it was either called for or tried a couple of times in Montreal but with his size and lack of any sort of excellent foot-speed or elite level skills he is definitely a Jason Krog-type.

This was my first Pack game this year... here is my assessment of the Pack D and goalies so far

Heikkinen: Good on both ends, makes plays happen and has a bomb
Urquhart: Sloppy 1st period, otherwise noticed him little
Sanguinetti: Didn't see much from him today, good patience on PP
Potter: Not good at all, offensively and defensively... three steps back to last year
Willams: Although he scored a nice goal, he's slow and pylon... nothing special
Sauer: Didn't notice him all game... guess that's good
Henley: I believe he's being used at wing... other than a monster body... meh

Zaba: Also took 3 steps back, terrible rebounds, shaky.
Johnson: Not the cool and calm self he was in the Rangers' preseason, solid though

Best news of the night - there's now a Dunkin Donuts in the XL Center. That'll help with the long drive home.

And I take back what I said last night about them not obviously playing Torts' system. Seeing them live rather than on a 4in screen its more obvious they're trying to do it. Potter and Sangs most obviously. With very mixed results.

The Pack better be on the same page as their parent affiliate... Imagine call-ups to New York have no clue about Torts' system...

Well that was a fun home opener. This team won't have problems scoring goals this year, that's for sure. Wonder what the status on Zaba was. Saw Mark Messier up in the rafters with Schoeny, that was neat.

LMAO!!

Very fun game to watch as a fan. Good thing Kenny G has no hair tho, cause he'd probably be pulling it out.

Thought we saw Clark up in the rafters as well early on, but hard to tell from so far away. However it was was the right height and build.

Anyone have any idea what might have happened to Dupont in the final fight? With his history I'm hoping it wasn't his head.

And for the record, I love Justin Soryal.

Okay one, the center ice looks terrible. I might write an email. Second, when Don Steele, the PA announcer, said "presented by CT Lottery" when welcoming fans to the game I was like "whaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaat?" It sounded so out of place.

I'm pretty sure Dupont fell on either his head or shoulder. Looked more like his head.

Zaba has a concussion. Wiikman has been recalled from Charlotte.

He only played one game with the Habs but he deserved better than this. The guy was named CHL player of the year, had some great training camps (among the last cuts 2 or 3 times) and he is Hamilton's all-time leading scorer. It's a shame that this guy never had a fair chance.

In fact, he almost didn't play his only game. He was called up to remplace a sick Koivu but his equipement didn't arrive in time for the game so he didn't play. Fortunately for him, the organisation was classy enough to give him a game later in the season.

I really hope that this guy will at least get a couple games with the Rangers if you continues with his awesome work in the AHL

Locke sucks at the NHL level. He is the perfect AHL'er to lean on and help the rookies out offensively when they struggle. You always need one or two veterans on your minor league team (who don't have to be that old either) who can carry the offense if need be. It deflects alot of the attention away from bluechippers and keeps the bad vibes out.

Is this one time deal or is the Hartford Courant covering the home games?

Quote:
Six of the Pack's first seven games are on the road, a decision made primarily for financial reasons; backload the schedule with home games when the season is more established and the fans are more inclined to buy tickets.
Quote:
The Rangers' newest executive, Mark Messier, attended the game
http://www.courant.com/sports/hockey...,2857383.story

Bruce Berlet filed a report for the Springfield paper

Quote:
ICE CHIPS: Falcons captain Dean Arsene played for the Wolf Pack in 2002-03. Arsene’s defensive partner, assistant captain Jake Taylor, played parts of four seasons with the Wolf Pack. ... Falcons right Colin McDonald is a native of nearby Wethersfield and the son of former Hartford Whalers defenseman Gerald McDonald. ... The crowd included Hall of Famer Mark Messier, an assistant to Rangers general manager Glen Sather.
