Don't be too jealous. It's no Islanders hockey...which I guess isn't saying much.

Not really mentioned yet, but the boys had a another rough loss Saturday night - 6-1 to Binghampton. Judging from the highlights, the Sens got a number of odd-man breaks. Can't say Poulin looked particularly sharp on a few of those goals against.

Kind of looks like the Tigers really need Poulin or Nilsson to simply have a few outstanding games to right the ship. The team has given up 5, 7 and 6 goals against in the past three. Some of the goals against have been of the unfortunate variety, but a few most would classify as 'stoppable' have found their way in.

For those watching, has it just been a combination of bad breaks and a few bad player decisions along the way? Does it look like there may be some systematic deficiencies? Have these recent shaky nights also had their origin in the defensive group of Hamonic, Ness, Donovan, Wishart, McIver, Landry and Hill?

Ness Landry and Wishart have simply been terrible..they are awful in their own end. While neither goalie has been steller they have received no help..for instance one of the goals the other night wishart watched a whale forward in front of the net score after nilsson made the first THREE saves..i almost threw up. also the PK has been bad as well. they really miss dehaan out there, hopefully a week at practice will right the ship

Wishart always seemed a bit clueless out there, well, on the Islanders anyway. He seemed a step behind, lacked confidence with the puck and confused or S L O W without the puck.

Ness is also not going to be an NHL player. I don't think he's good enough offensively to overcome his defensive weaknesses.

I suspect BP really missed deHaan and Cizikas, on both sides of the puck. What's up with Cizikas, he hasn't played in a long time, what injury does he have?

ALSO, Bridgeport is the second youngest team in the AHL. Young teams are notorious for inconsistency, especially on defense. It's pretty impressive that they've been able to get off to such a great start, with key injuries, in a strong league (given the lockout).

I really think you guys are overrating DeHaan. Im not saying he won't be an NHL regular or that hes a good/great player but he isn't and wasn't BPT's best defenseman last year or this one.

I just think the problems are the fact that this team is YOUNG. They are going to have growing pains. The other problem; look att he defensive roster, more "offensive" minded players than defensive. Hamonic cannot carry this team on his back. Someone has to help out defensively. Wishart has been and always be terrible. Donovan is the only one here that has the potential to be Hamonic's "wing man" and help out with the defensive indifference.

Everytime I've watched Bridgeport, he was paired with Wishart and covered his ass frequently. de Haan's skating and poise kept defenders contained and moved the puck up ice very efficiently (sp). His game is not flashy nor does he put up points, but he is certainly a good defenseman. He showed that with his one game call-up.

I don't know about this year, but last year it was definitely Donovan.

Really? Pronman begs to differ.

The Good: De Haan started off the year with some struggles adjusting to the pro level, but by the end of the season he regularly looked like Bridgeport's best defenseman. He has high-end hockey sense on offense and defense and really stands out with his poise and reads on and off the puck. De Haan is a very effective outlet passer who moves the puck around fine on the power play, and a player scout said this year that he "got a lot of third assists." De Haan shows the ability to excel as a tough minutes shutdown defenseman who can also put up a fair amount of points.

I thougt De Haan was Bridgeport's steadiest d-man before being injured this season.

I can't recall any time I've seen de Haan play and not be impressed. Even in his one call up he was challenging Hamonic as the our best dman that particular game.

From the little I saw of CDH this year, he stood out big time. It was his poise and smarts that really shined. Losing him was a big blow because he was going to be counted on for big minutes with Hammer and Donovan. It's a shame.

Yeah, that Calvin de Haan was probably going to win d-man of the year judging from the 3 games he played. Over .50 PPG and a +1 and, moreover, was THE difference maker in those 3 games. How else could the Sound Tigers have started 3-0? Not without Calvin de Haan.

Edit: But seriously, I saw him live the second game against Providence, and he honestly looked more poised than Hammer. Fluid skater, crisp passer, relaxed under pressure.

What's up with Hammer this year? Does he think he's too good for the AHL and is putting in a half-*** effort?

In that limited time (3 games) he was much more focused than hamonic. Poised player...

Now i am not sold that donovan isnt outperforming hammer, who seems outta his element in the offensive zone.
