This St.John's announcer is a full-fledged moron. Just minutes after looking like a fool for going on about the "gift" assists on Ferriero's goal, he starts yammering again about the "gift" assist on Holzapfel's.

Shut the **** up. Some people never learn.

Holzapfel has really turned his game around since his bad start.

I'm not saying that because of the goal, just his overall play lately.
Yeah he has. I guess he's finally adjusted to the system. He's racked up assists and goals playing with Bennett. Apparently they compliment each other pretty well.

I'm not impressed with Klingberg either. Looks to skate okay for his size, but little hockey sense and skill.

Minor league announcers are almost universally terrible, so I'm not that surprised.

I'm somewhat surprised that there are guys so obnoxious that they make Tom Grace seem pleasant to listen to. At least he's complimentary of the other team, and when they catch him and O'Brien talking during a radio break they seem to be into the game and not just *****ing about everything.

I see I was already beaten to the 'Day-spray' comment.

My strongest memory of Burmistrov is Mark Letestu completely muscling him off the puck to score a goal, although I still consider myself a fan of his.

Glad to see WB/S looking a lot better after their somewhat slow start. Last bunch of games have been entertaining.

Still one of my favorite Pens of the past few years.

Veilleux and Uher have been recalled after just one game with Wheeling. Kühnhackl is probably out for a while with a shoulder injury.

Nice article about Bobby Farnham and the role he's playing:

Great article that covers a wider scope than just Farnham. I expect to see a plagiarized version of it on tsn.com whenever the next nhl season occurs. Brought me back a few years to the Matthew Barnaby days.

Good to see Bennett getting comfortable / starting to produce some nice goals and assists. That goal game before last that was posted here was pretty twisted. Unbelievable hands on that shot. Hopefully he keeps developing and gets a bit stronger. If his hands stay that good I could see Crosby racking up an extra 25A per season no problem.

It is nice to see him start to be productive (and against NHL-ish defenders). IMO, he has to work on his skating above everything else. If he can put a decent set of wheels below him, he should reach his top 6 potential. To me, this is his biggest weakness in his game.

I am not saying that BB is our best prospect, but he certainly is our most important one considering our situation on the wings. He is still a rookie in AHL and started a bit slowly, but he is better and better with every game. Points keep on coming for him and that´s great to see, especially in a bit defensive-minded team like WBS. He could easily have over 1.00 PPG in more talented AHL offenses, but OK. At least he has that solid chemistry with Holzapfel lately. Beau is already better than Tangradi, and I see BB as a very probable option for our top6 into 2013/2014 season. We need him badly, and I think he´ll make us satisfied.

Interesting but makes sense on a certain level given where he's coming from.

That picture is a whole lotta creepy. The photographer who thought shirtless and pads was a good idea needs more second opinions. He looks like someone trying out for a hockey pron movie or something. "Stick Check: The Reckoning... starring Beau Dangles and Lisa Laces"

Got to give the coaching staff in WBS a lot of credit in turning their rough start around. I don't know how much longer John Hynes is going to stick around. They have a lot of youngsters that are making major contributions. Other NHL teams must be taking notice.

I agree with this. Hynes looks like he might turn into a real hot commodity here in the next season or two. I seem to remember his name being mentioned for the job in Washington which would have been weird considering the animosity between Hershey and Wilkes-Barre and Hynes and French in particular.
