Agreed. Since I don't have TWSNY, I have to depend on audio streaming the games via WHTK. (Trust me, Don Stevens is just as good at calling a game as RJ is; he just doesn't have the bombast that Rick does.)

HOPEFULLY, one of the things that Pegula can do is set up a regional sports network a la Empire. Having a team be a partner in such an RSN isn't new, but whether it would work when only 1 team is in the partnership is a good question.

Have any other players attending the Amerks training camp been reassigned or released?

I was extremely excited to go, but I told my friend earlier in the week I would goto his house party (he just moved in). I figured it would start around 10, but it starts at 6.


He gave me a a guilt trip. Oh well, I'll be going to a game within 2 weeks. Hopefully there's the same level of talent playing.

LOL, the same team was apparently sold and renamed today also.
The Central Hockey League is a joke.

Thats not the direct link - that link sends you to the homepage of the WHTK website where you must then click on the "LISTEN LIVE" icon on the top of the page or play button thats located in the middle of the page. It then sends you to the audio page where after a short 15 sec video commercial - the audio should start. My link skips the homepage part and sends you directly to the audio page.

Well Tropp is done for the year. Tough loss for the team and himself.

Time to find a real replacement, though. The league is too talented to just plug in Flynn or Jon Parker. Lots of guys still looking for jobs. Whitmore is on a PTO and has been a healthy scratch.

I still can't figure why a hometown kid who wore an 'A' for you and scored 55 goals in the previous two years wasn't brought back. I just can't figure it out unless Whitmore was looking for a better opportunity.

I think it was a combination of factors. Whitmore probably wanted a better opportunity. The Sabres were holding roster spots for their NHL guys - Hodgson, Tropp, Foligno.

At this point with a packed roster I just don't see Darcy making a move to obtain Whitmore. I'd like to see him in Rochester - just don't think it's in the cards as long as the lockout is on.

While "packed" in terms of bodies, it's not particularly packed in terms of talent. Whitmore's an option since he's a known commodity, but it seemed like he was looking to get back to the Portland area where his new wife is from and where he was a very involved volunteer.

It will likely mean an opportunity for someone else (Flynn at the moment), but it's hard to be optimistic about it at this point.

He didn't sign with Portland because phoneixs ownership questions. Once a two way contract was gone bodies started filling rosters due to the lockout. Tough year for players like him.

Give Flynn a chance. He may develop and surprise like Varone did last year.

Whitmore is lucky to have a job right now. As Mancari stated a lot of quality AHL pros he has played with/against don't have a job this year.

Likewise, a lot of pros are sitting home from their previous job in Europe being pushed out by NHL players. (interesting article on former Amerk Domenic Pittis regarding this topic: http://www.calgaryherald.com/sports/...818/story.html )

I will. I'm fine with giving it a few weeks to see how he does. I can't see any GM who would go out and replace Tropp right now.

But unless Flynn shows he belongs in a top 6 role, it's necessary. There's way too much talent not to. Look at Toronto and Syracuse, who the Amerks have to play 20 times.

That's what I said. Phoneixs ownership questions prevented Whitmore from getting a contract. Add a lockout and it becomes even more difficult for him to find a job.

The fact that Whitmore isn't particularly useful to any NHL team also probably has something to do with it.

Let's not forget he was pretty much the last call up option for the Sabres and does nothing but score goals at a slightly above average level in the minors.

27-28 goals and assistant captain for little cost to an AHL team seems pretty valuable to me.

Agreed he's not particularly useful for an NHL team, but I'm shocked he's only signed to a PTO right now.
