Really? They're bringing Steckel back? I think that's a good move. Not so much because Steckel's the second coming or anything, but because he *wants* to do well. And now he should try even harder armed with the knowledge that he's a probable first-round bust!
As for Rullier.........
I listened to a fair amount of Monarch games over the internet radio, so I'm not at liberty to comment upon his positioning, but I do know one thing: this guy was in the box - A LOT! And it seemed as if every third game he was being ejected. That's not anything a d-man's supposed to do. Sticking up for your teammates is one thing, but making those same teammates go from 6 defenseman to 5 for half a game sort of defeats the purpose of sticking up for them, no?
Actually, they used Chris Schmidt on defense when they needed to. Rullier really had no choice on several occasions when both Flinn and Parros were injured. Rullier helped keep a lot of guys healthy in Manchester. Next time you see Cammy, ask him how he liked having Rullier covering his back in Manchester this season?
Lehoux hands down.
He won't be in Manchester next fall.
He'll be with the big guys.
I'm not pissed because we didn't resign Ziggy because I want to see him get top6 ice time. Call me fool, but I want to see our kids play. I'm sick of reading in every thread "trade Cammalleri"...damn, we've finally developed some prospects, let's give them a damn chance. I think we have a pretty balanced offense, and I'm sure our young players won't disappoint us.
Joe Rullier would be pretty awesome too. I met him last year after the Monarchs game here, and man that dude is big up close and personal. Nice too off the ice
But he looked like he could do some damage of all the players that were at the location where I was.
