In tomorrow's Windsor Star there's an article about Pavelka coming back to play for us next year - so it looks like our goalie situation is filled for the time being.

After the season starts, I wouldn't be surprised if Rychel ships out Pavelka and picks up a non-import goalie before making a deal for Sergei Tolchinsky from the Sault

In 93/94, he had four PIM. The next year, he had 23, which makes me believe he got 2/5/10, thus the major against Cloutier.

You've been reading my mail (mind). Somewhere along the line I heard rumours he (Pavelka) was homesick and was staying in Latvia. Now it sounds as if he's coming back. He was ordinary at best last year, having great games and very poor games.

There are teams with extra overagers and overage goaltenders that will be dealing after the trade window opens up again (Aug 1st).

This team as it sits would be hard pressed to contend for anything but a lower playoff finish. We do have (2) 1st round import picks next year and a few extra picks in the next few years that can be used in deals.

2013: 1st, 3rd, LON 3rd, ERI 5th, ERI 7th, 9th, SAR 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, SUD 13th, 14th, KGN 15th
2014: 1st, SAR 2nd, NIA 2nd, SAG 2nd, OTT 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th
2015: 1st, NIA 2nd, SUD 2nd, 4th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th
2016: 1st, 2nd, SAR 2nd, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th, SSM 15th (*)
2017: 1st, 2nd, SAR 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th
2018: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 6th, 7th, 8th, 9th, 10th, 11th, 12th, 13th, 14th, 15th

Hopefully WR can parlay some of the extra picks along with the likes of Czinder and Devlin for a couple of players that can move us up in the playoff race.

Im all for getting rid of Devlin (undrafted and few more bodies that may take his spot) but it seems alot of people have things against Czinder. I know hes not a superstar by any means, and I know hes not the greatest skater in the "O" but some of you guys must not have watched the spits 2 years ago when Czinder stepped or "fell" on the ice his first season. As far as im concerned he should have got most improved player on this team period. His skating has improved dramatically, his hand eye, his shot, his passing, he even got a little more physical. When you go from this:

50 - 2g - 1a- 3 pts

to

68 - 15g - 15a- 30 pts

You have to at least give this guy a chance, This is his 3rd year in which as most ohl fanatics know its his crucial year that every player would either be classed as a ohl player or a future nhl player. If we trade him he better not be a throw in type deal or I know a whole section who will show theyre displeasure.

You apparently are a huge fan of Czinder however you must admit he's a 3rd liner unless all of a sudden he changes his style. At this point (overager) his chances of making the NHL are slim but he could be a better OHL player than he's shown.
He probably will not score much more than last year if as much. His +/- was -9 on last years team which all in all is not too shabby. As a 3rd liner you'd like a player to be a bit more physical than Czinder. I don't mean a fighter, I mean tougher in the corners and in front of the net.
If the Spits want to bring in an overager who can score Czinder would be the
the logical choice to be traded over the 2 D-Men and if the Spits want to bring in an overage goalie he'd probably be the odds on favourite to get moved/waived.
In my humble opinion he would at best be a throw in in any deal.

I saw this online and figured it was worth a share. There's not much new in the article, but the video they have is worth checking out. I've only seen Ho Sang at the prospects camp and in this video, but I voted that he's the next Taylor Hall in the poll. I'm sold on him. He may not be the same player as Taylor Hall but he's most certainly going to be that elite offensive threat that every champion needs. If they plunk him on a line with Rychel who do they put between them? I'd love to see Clarke get the gig and shut up his critics who want to package him for unicorns and pixie dust.

Another guy who doesn't get any respect around here is Pavelka. Everyone is so fixated on getting somebody else so we don't waste an import slot on an overage goalie our memorial cup bid year that they are overlooking just how great this kid played for us. If I lined up the goalie's we've had over the last couple years in order of how confident I felt with them in the net, it would go Gubauer, Pavelka, Campbell, Passingham, Engelage. It took a bit for him to get comfortable in Windsor, but once he found his groove Pavelka was consistently one of our best players every night. Campbell, Passingham, and Engelage never gave me the same confidence each game that Pavelka did. Give the kid a bit of credit. I'm ecstatic he's coming back to Windsor and I won't be surprised if he has a great season for us.

Pavelka is 19 years old chances are you won't have him as an OA because you have 2 1st round import picks in 2013. The team isn't gunning for a championship this upcoming year just as they weren't with a 19 year old Jack Campbell in net. Why keep Pavelka around? This has to be bizzaro Jughead you had more confidence in Passingham than Engelage? Where did the confidence come with Passingham?

I give you that having two imports in 2013 makes an overage Pavelka less likely, but if he plays great this season it wouldn't be impossible to trade those assets to make room.

As far as having more confidence in Passingham than Engelage, that was how I really felt. I'm not saying Passingham was awesome, only that I felt slightly less nervous with him between the pipes than with Engelage. Engelage gave me the shakes more than Passingham did, even if he was a better goalie.

Ho-Sang starting the season with Kerby Rychel is pretty likely. Ho-Sang should be able to excel on the wing. It's a smart move the coaches are making by putting him on the outside.

I love that the Spits are doing stuff like this. I don't really remember us having any sort of real alumni events in the past, probably because most of our top alumni like Paul Giolnardo and Dave Geris couldn't get their shift off at McDonalds to play in a charity game. These days we have a lot more active players to draw a crowd, and its a huge benefit for minor hockey and the Spitfire organization to have a strong alumni.

Love the idea, but the location isn't ideal. Is there any reason they couldn't have this at the WFCU? It's going to be packed, and kind of uncomfortable.

It's in conjunction with Tecumseh Minor Hockey... doesn't make sense to have it at the WFCU Center.

it holds 600 According to this site http://www.tecumseh.ca/townhall/depa...creation/arena so my guess would be around 900-1000 if people are aloud to stand. So looks like you should get there ASAP saturday if you want a seat

is that including the people standing ??? did they add more seats when they got u-17 games???

i wonder if they would have tried for this game to be played in the barn if it was not closing, would have been awesome to see a bunch of former spits play in the last every hockey game to be played in the barn.

I'd LOVE for them to land Tolchinsky. Would make my off-season.

So, I'm driving to work tonight and am downtown. This van, of sorts, (holds 15 ppl?) stops and lets people off. I didn't think anything of it, until I realized who they were:

Hall, Henrique, Cundari, Wellwood, Nemisz, Shutron, Shugg, Mitchell...to name a few. Whole cluster of them. Can't wait to see 'em on the ice tomorrow!
