I was pretty pumped when I seen him throw a few checks and I was like that Wilson-Foote kid is awesome. Then when the kid skated towards us I notice the last name wasn't his. I don't have the sheet in front of me right now but when I do get it I will post it.
I am pretty sure that he was part of a jersey change in the second period.

I also noticed the Wilson-foote mix up. I wonder if there were other mixed up numbers/names and I just didn't notice. Why was DiPaolo playing a Fwd? We could use his size up front but it was obvious that wasn't his strength. I liked Cam Ashley alot to. Great speed, vision, hockey smarts and able to finish. But the lad is rather small. Are top two picks this year bring size but I wasn't overly impressed. I actually liked Renaud more than Hargrave this weekend, but it was just a few skates. Nikandrov and Brown looked good. I was disappointed with the compete level of many of the lads. Where was Braxton-Andrews from last years draft? I am also disappointed with the STH prices for next year. Decisions decisions.

Sounds like they're hopeful Anderson returns in net, based on the article on Sting site. But I think that's more so wishful thinking. He was signed by the San Jose Sharks organization prior to last season, so I would think. now that he is old enough, he would enter their farm system rather than be returned for an OA year in the OHL.
Sharks have Niemi & Greiss as 2 NHL goaltenders, both still under contract for next season. Also have Tyson Sexsmith & Harri Sateri both in AHL. Most probable he plays in ECHL somewhere next season.

Agree. Probably ECHL for Anderson.

Agree. ECHL would be likely destination. However I hope he returns so we can recoup some of those lost picks.

[QUOTE=JuniorFan27;49009083]Nikandrov, DiPaolo and Brown did look good, but they'd better - they have a year of JR experience and they were playing primarily against kids coming out of minor midget or midget.

I focused on the defensemen, here are a few that stood out:


Brandon - why was he there? Big, but slow, always out of position, was on for at least have of the Black team goals against. Must be someone's nephew.[/QUOTE]

Which means the Sting brass have probably already signed him to a contract.

Did Braxton Andrews ever materialize? I'm surprised he wasn't there as reported by someone (I couldn't make the skate to watch)? They could use a smooth skating D like him. Especially with one year of experience under his belt.

The last thing we need are more smooth skating D. We need grit, size, and D that are going to hit hit hit. Wilson Foote or Donnelly type kids from the skate last week.

Ritchie wasn't playing like that while in Sarnia. He was playing lazy, and it was apparent to some that he didn't want to be here. Change can be good for some kids and it worked out very well for Ritchie.
I remember his last game with the Sting and his last play. We had an empty net to try and tie the game, the puck was in our end, Brett had the puck near the net and made a blind back pass straight onto the stick of an opposing player who put it in the net, ending any hope of tying the game. It was a brutal, lazy, stupid play. He went on the injury list after that I believe.

Exactly. Ritchie did not play like that in Sarnia and was terribly inconsistent. Can't blame Jacko for that one as he was uninspired during his whole tenure as a Sting. Good to see him playing well but it's also not hard to play on that stacked Niagara squad.


PS - Sarnia will be the host of game 4 for the 2012 Subway Super Series on Nov 12 leading up to the WJC

I thought it was quite simple to understand. I believe he means if sting had not fired hunter, they would be in sarnia, not in London. And perhaps Sarnia would enjoy success.

The only reason Mark was fired was because he was looking to buy London while he was employed by the Sting.

He was leaving to go to London regardless. Its revisionist history to believe anything otherwise.

To my knowledge, I don't think the Sting release a list of players invited to their main camp in late August. They release the schedule (scrimmages, Black & White game, etc) on their website. The listed players at main camp are provided when you attend any portion of it, so you'd probably have to show up or have someone bring you a copy if you're unable to attend yourself.
In regards to CHL Import draft - now 36 days away - it will be interesting to see what the Sting do. They could trade up to get a higher end guy, but that might cost more than they want to give up considering they're coming off an "all-in" year. It may be a wiser decision to re-coup picks rather than distribute more out to their competitors. They also have BOTH import roster spots available with the departures of Yakupov (NHL) and Rensfeldt (AHL). With a later pick they could follow last years route and choose a player a year or two older (93 or 94) than the youngest of eligible imports (95). As well, they could utilize their Blackhawks connection and choose one of their drafts picks. Having Larionov with ties to the Sting can also only help with luring Russians. One Russian, a 1993 birthdate, drafted by Chicago is forward, Maxim Shalunov - a 2011, 4th round draft pick.

How likely is it for you guys to move Basso? Petes need a better veteran defenceman and I've always liked Basso's game.

As a sting fan, would you guys by content with swapping Basso to the Petes for a 95 birthdate d-man? (Varga)

Basso, undrafted in the NHL, will be an overage candidate for the Sting in 2013-14. Of the Sting's '93 born players, Basso & Boucher have the heighest ceiling, tallent-wise. Boucher, a Devils draft pick, will probably enter their AHL farm system following the upcoming 2012-13 season and not even be available as an overager. That makes Basso even more important being they're top OA candidate for 2013-14.
In terms of D, what happens with Connor Murphy may dictate the Sting's need for an offensive defenseman such as Basso's abilities.
If Murphy returns, he along with DeAngelo are the Sting's top 2 offensive options. Chiarlitti will log big minutes in one of the Sting's top 2 defensive pairings as well. You then have Basso, Duininick, Kuzmyk, & Dipaolo, probably in that order, filling out your 4-7 D spots. If Murphy makes the jump to the AHL, which I think he very well could, Basso's offensive talent becomes all the more necessary. It's possible the Sting use one of their Import selections at D, minimizing Basso's potential minutes this season, but there's a lot more need elsewhere - revamping the top 6 forwards & addressing the goaltending situation - that Imports can be used for.
I would call it 'unlikely' that Basso is moved.

Sting Head Scout fired

According to CHOK Jim Debeneham (sp), Sting Head Scout, has been fired. JB will take over the duties. So JB is GM, Head Coach and Head Scout. Wonder is that is temporary. Seems to be too much for one guy.
