- has ANYONE looked overly impressive yet for the Monarchs ? they're less than a handful of games into the season ... let's wait 10-20 games in before calling him a bust yet again ... as even kkempy mentioned elsewhere that Hickey has played much better before, and most likely will again before too long.
No one has looked overly impressive and I don't necessarily expect them to this early in the season. I am not calling Hickey a bust just that he hasn't played well yet. I liked what I saw of him last season and I expect he will get back to that as long as he can stay healthy.
I agree it's way too early in the season to be calling anyone anything yet, and I know you weren't calling Hickey a bust ... I was just trying to temper the expect prancing boy type of posts calling him a bust prematurely 3 games into the season, because I too expect Hickey to be one of the better D-men in Manchester by years end.
And it's not a knock on Harrold, but I think he'd clear and think he'd be a great mentor for the young guys in Manchester.
Ah damn, I actually didn't end up double-checking, thanks for letting me know.. Guess Kozun is tearing it apart for the 'Narchs eh? Not surprised, dude can play, just not sure if he can at the NHL level
Same way I felt about watching Sydor in juniors...didn't turn out so well for the Kings.
When DS played for the loops he was golden.
I was at his pre season game at the Tacoma Center for his rookie year and he looked great then too. He was a good player for us, he could have and should have been better but there were mitigating circumstances in my opinion.
When we dealt him he sure seemed to work out for Dallas.
