All you need to know about this team is that both guys came in and immediately played on the PP.

Cohen looked a little bit better than Carman. Neither guy was all that impressive, though. They both looked very unsure of themselves.

Willsie and Preissing were horrible in that game. Preissing will be in Europe next year.

Sweet, how did each players game look overall? Any video highlights from that game online anywhere?

No videos of the game but Cohen had a goal and assist, 7 shots on net and was +3 while Carman scored 1 goal and was +3.

Saturday's game was televised back to Cleveland. Both players looked like they belonged at this level. Unfortunately, the team gave up a third period lead today and lost the rematch in SA.

He scored in his first game and has been an active player in all three contests. I've only listened to the radio broadcasts, but his named was mentioned fairly often.

Good to hear! Sounds like him as he loves to be around the puck.

Monsters just beat Abbotsford in a shoot-out 5-4. Shattenkirk had an assist in regulation and also scored in the shoot-out. Colby Cohen got in a fight

Just looking at the score sheet, Shattenkirk was a +1 with an assist and 5 shots on goal, which was the second most on the team.

Cohen finished the night with an even plus minus (he was on the ice for Lake Erie's game tying goal in the final minutes), no points, but he had 7 penalty minutes (2 for holding, and a 5 minute major for fighting). Cohen also had 3 shots on goal.

I'll give C. Cohen credit for dropping the gloves, but he did just as well as you would expect a first pro game out of college rookie to fair against an AHL vet with over 250 PIM's to do. He ended up on the ice with his sweater pulled over his head. For every punch he landed, he received about 4.

Shattenkirk scored the shootout winner, a decent deke, and had an assist. He played regular shifts, and played on the PP and PK, as did C. Cohen.

The team played well for two periods, folded in the first half of the third, but came back and tied the game with 16 seconds left from a nice shot by Tom Pressing. Abbotsford took a too many men penalty with under 2 minutes left in OT, but the Monsters couldn't capitalize. One of the more entertaining games of the year. Saturday's season finale should have a large crowd over 15,000.

Grand Rapids thumped Lake Erie 6-1 last night.

Colby Cohen had a rough go of it. He was a -3 with a minor penalty and one shot on goal.

Shattenkirk, perhaps impressively, finished with an even +/-, added an assist and had a couple of shots on goal.

Shattenkirk has a couple of assists and is +1 through his first couple of games.

Kirk showing why he is well ahead of Cohen at this point

In the eyes of NCAA voters it was the other way around this year though. Probably unfair expectations on Captain Kirk contributed but he really didn't look good in the games I saw. We may see that he is more suited for the pro game and is more comfortable in a smaller team role (no C) right now. I really hope he makes the team next year and has an impact. Boy could we use it.

Monsters blow a two goal lead, lose to Abbotsford in a shoot-out. Shattenkirk had the lone shoot-out goal for Lake Erie. Tough way to end the season.

It has more to do with the fact that Cohen was mighty impressive on the PP and scored a whopping 14 goals. Funny enough, most of those goals scored on the PP where him playing as a forward. They were all scored from the left faceoff circle on one-timers, almost exactly the way Steven Stamkos scores all his wonderful PP slappers

The college voters didn't take complete game into account when voting. Of course 14 goals for a d-man would be very impressive. However, not one BU fan would tell you he is any good defensively. Shatty had a very meh year at BU. But looks like he helped LEM out a bit towards the end.

I saw that shot a few time and it reminded me of Brendan Shanahan in his prime. He did make some awful decisions defensively but in the games I watched this year Shatty did too. It probably tells us a lot that both players chose to leave BU when they did. For Shanny it wasn't a big deal but for Cohen to leave he had to feel that playing in Lake Erie would be better for his development than a primary role in Boston. Strange because I would think the Terriers would be a better team next year with their young forwards maturing.

I'm not disagreeing with you because I believe that Cohen needs some seasoning in terms of his positional play, but his stats last year are interesting.

8 of Cohen's 14 goals came on the power play, and I have to assume that he picked up several assists on the power play as well. That would mean that at least 1/3 to 1/2 of his points were on the power play.

Cohen was a +3 last season on a team where most were minus players (Shattenkirk was a -2 for the season). For a power play specialist that picks up a large portion of his points with the man advantage, Cohen's plus/minus number would suggest that he was at least competent at even strength.

I realize that plus/minus numbers can be deceptive, but I thought it was interesting.

The Monsters averaged 6484 over 40 dates, a rise of 550 a game over 08-09, and good for 6th place out of 29 in the AHL attendance rankings.

Pretty good for a non-playoff team.
