Pavelka, DeKort, Koko (if he returns), Bateman and Clarke for Altshuller, Appleby, Dal Colle and Cassels? What do you guys think?

Honestly think Oshawas GM would ask if WR was joking, Dal Colle will be a star and I think Cassels will be to and Altshuller is younger and is just as good as Pav if not a bit better, IMO It's not remotely close think of adding a couple seconds on the way to Oshawa and maybe they would think.

The team is a steaming pile of ___ right now. DeKort was good neither was this so called stud Pavelka either. DeKort isn't getting the time to develop because the team is desperately trying to sneak into the playoffs with Pavelka.

Again with the statistics man this is getting old fast. If you only put a guy in net against the teams that you "should" win then his stats should show. His job as a backup goalie is to keep the game close to help the team win and nothing more. Probably one of the first games we start against a good team and he sure showed his talent. Saying Pav is having a slump is pretty dumb considering if we didn't have pav this season we would be asking erie what its like to win a game. Yeah thats the way to go play a kid thats won like 1 game in his career in the net with no first round pick this year. well at least we would have the 41st pick overall this year.

It's just not him, when most players play bad everyone else also looks like **** to, I mean Bateman, Both Clarks, Mcnoughton, Studnicka, Pavelka, Dekort, Lorentz and the list goes on and it's What have you done for us lately or for some all season where have you been? I honestly havent seen or heard Mcnoughton or Lorentz name for the past 7 or 8 games, like get the **** off the ice you bums I'd rather have rookies like Verbeek have Lorentz time and Brown take Mcnoughtons time, at least there rookies these guys are 93 and 94's and are pathetic and useless, invisible every game and should be in junior B or at least not on this team. I didn't like Lorentz before the trade because he was soft and isn't a threat offensively and he hasent changed a thing 1 goal and 5 assist since he's been here and the guy needs to go...a lot of guys need to go for this team to be competitive. I've said it before not enough heart, they play as if they don't care that's how it looks and there way to soft idk why they never put a big team on the ice. if WR and BB expect to host they better make a lot of moves and make this team look like they could compete next year or there chances get even worse to host.

"this so called stud Pavelka"...and where exactly are you when he plays well? Sure, he's had some off nights lately, but his defence has been rather, um, horrible. London he had zero help, Saginaw the team shut down on him, and I'm not even going to try to figure out tonight.

Before everyone shoots down Dekort lets put it this way. Dekort was signed before last season. He knew his role, he was going to get few starts as the ultimate goal is preparation for the 2014 season. Out of approximately 107 games (not including playoffs) he has played 16 games. Now if you really expect a young goalie to be amazing with the lack of minutes required for preparation, I'm confused at your logic. It's a problem with the CHL in general, they continuous bring over European goalies to develop and forget about our own home grown talent. If you seriously expect DeKort to be ready for next year or maybe even the year after its time he plays more games. Hypothetically, God forbid Pavelka came down with a season ending injury, then what. It all comes down to letting Dekort play. Let him struggle, but he needs the time if you expect to reap any reward.

Your posts are terrible.

When say supposed to win against? Whose that exactly considering we are only better than Erie?

I truly can't believe that windsor is going for the memorial cup next year. If I'm Dave Branch, I'm sitting in my commish chair dying laughing. I get they have nothing to lose with no first round but c'mon...

Most people who have followed this team all season would agree that in the past 4 or 5 games goaltending has faltered badly when in truth it has been the teams best asset
I would have Dekort against Sarnia,afterall in the last game at Sarnia he won 3-2 in a shootout and that was when Sarnia had Murphy and Galchenyuk in the lineup
Pavelka has played poorly the last 3 previous games especially in Sag and London
It may be no coincidence that once his girlfriend went back home to Europe prior to the plymouth game his play improved a bit
Coaches often go with a goalie who may have played well against an opponent and in this situation to go with Dekort was the right call
Stats are not everything I agree but combined with history in alot of cases it s the right thing to do

Spits and The Playoffs

Yeah it is only the first week in January, however with the Spits loosing last night and Erie winning, the Otters are now only 4 points back of Windsor for the final spot. If the Spits do not make a major shake up trade, they will be passed over for the last playoff spot. Erie is winning wihtout McDavid in the line up and that in itself is impressive and with their new coach are playing their best hockey yet.

6 days and counting to the deadline, anyone disagree ?

great year not to have a no 1 pick ......SEAN DAY of compuware right in our own backyard ,apparently seeking special status for this draft ..........and all it would cost is a gold package ....i guess those memorial cups spoiled us .how long before players start wanting out ? looking more and more like DJ was a bigger cog in this coaching debacle than we first thought ......oshawa certainly looks more organized changing lines even in the games i watch on cogeco .....

Fact is Pavelka is right around where he was last year with defense or no defense.

11-12 3.47 GAA .905 sv%
12-13 3.52 GAA .904 sv%

The minutes played, shots faced and saves made are almost identical. Say what you want about the poor defense and cherry picking certain games not to include but the fact is he's not really better than last year and you can't expect to win games and finish high in the standings with a 3.5 gaa it just doesn't work that way. Watch Pavelka since the break he's fighting every puck, he doesn't look confident at all. DeKort hasn't been good but I guess you missed where I said it's a total team effort with this group failing.

Terrific post and what I have been saying for the past couple months. You could see after the first 15-20 games it was going to be the Pavelka show and development with DeKort secondary. For somebody to say only playing DeKort against the bad teams the Spits are 16th in the league the only teams worse are probably Ottawa, Erie and Peterborough. Windsor has played 4 games against those 3 teams and DeKort has played 0 of those games. I don't have a problem with DeKort being a 2nd round pick but if you're going to draft him in the 2nd round you better darn well have him play and develop. Rychel has said they have never developed a goalie but that's on management/coaching never getting that goalie the ice time and game experience.

With Kuptsov to Ottawa and opening another import spot up in Belleville does create another suitor for Khokhlachev?

I disagree. What Erie does or doesn't do has no effect on the Spitfires. Zilch,zip,nada,zero,smuck.
Why you ask. Answer = The Spitfires are in the West Division of the Western conference. Erie is in the midwest division of the western conference. The Spitfires need to beat out Saginaw to get in the playoffs. Saginaw is 1 pt ahead of the Spitfires.
Erie has to beat out Guelph who is 17 points ahead of them.

And now you know the rest of the story........

Mea culpa, Mea culpa...will now extract foot from mouth.
The trading deadline if it remains the same is 5 days (Jan 10th 12PM)except for overage players. The deadline for them if it remains the same is 4 days.

Wrong, it's the top 8 teams in the conference period, it isn't the top 4 from the Midwest and West. Erie can pass Windsor and Saginaw and get that final playoff spot, so yes Erie is still looking at catching Windsor and then Saginaw.

Sound like a plan to me....bring on those 2nd rounders. Was told they have lots of draft picks....but would Koko rather go to Sarnia, Oshawa or places in between?
