The Whale have outplayed the Devils in the 2nd period. Gilroy has looked good out there, throwing pucks at the net without any real hesitation. Whale doing a nice job of getting traffic to the net. Yogan is working hard out there, his game needs work, but he is a big body, moves pretty well. Kolarik doesn't look to bad either, missed on a juicy rebound to the top of the right circle.
Now JAM, who is one of the top AHL scorers in the league.
It's an unfortunate reality of having a good, deep team. Kinkaid had no path for advancement in our organization with Lundqvist entering his prime. We were interested, but NJ presented a better opportunity for him. Same for JAM--we made an offer, but he jumped to a ****** Columbus team where he stands a far better chance of making the big club right away.
I don't remember the deal with Read, whether we offered him a deal or not. Maybe we just (wrongly) chose Tommy Grant instead? Either way, can't hit on all the signings. We did hit a home run with Girardi, who is likely better now than any of those others ever will be.
