I don't understand Caputi being sent down but Lasch could use the ice time considering he's barely played recently.
Maybe Caputi could have something to do with the veteran limit. We've got Parent, Smaby, Guenin, Caputi, Hendry, Maroon, Pelley, Rosehill & Bodie who have all played 260+ pro games which was the limit the last time I checked. It would explain some of the questionable scratches also.
They are young guys and i get the whole partying thing, but they can get trashed on nights that they don't have to play a game the next day.
I agree, we all know hockey players like to drink and I'm all for partying every now and again but never the night before a game. Playing hockey hungover is not fun and it certainly affects your performance.
I'll just be glad to watch a game in standard def.
Watching college hockey last night reminded me just how bad these web feeds are.
Yeah, last night I pretty much knew where all the players I recognized were at all times. These AHL streams? Well it's a chore trying to figure out who everyone is when they don't have the puck or aren't near it.
We had even less information when we were affiliated with Cuse imo. But, ofcourse, now with the lockout we expect more info.
Syracuse had the beat writer who was pretty good. Much better than anything we've had so far in Norfolk, despite the fact he took shots at Ducks management (and still does I'm pretty sure) every chance he got.
