Love it
Seriously thou, quine really never played with that many quality players like he is now! So the 5 pts in his first game shouldn't surprise many. His game will evolve more with each game under burnett.

And best part is George actually let the bulls forecheck and create opportunity, yes it has to do with the players he brought in, but the systems have been tweekend and they are working.

thanks for no more trap

Think Alan will adapt well to the big Belleville ice especially after playing in Peterborough

If those players came in and were forced to not play hockey but trap and sit back we'd be back to low scoring games again, maybe not as low but definitely lower and more boring. But they'd probably rebel anyways and play whatever style they wanted. I love the open format and direct attacking forecheckers, makes for a way more exciting game.

Talked to Malcolm after practise today and I asked him if having a good back up motivates him to play harder.

"No not really"

He doesn't lack for confidence I'll give him that

That's the Subban attitude for you. Ask Malcolm how things went in the World Juniors? See what happens when your given the starting job without earning it! He may be cocky but he can't handle the pressure never mind handle that level of competition. Never has, never will.

He earned it through his work in the summer series and through his play with the Bulls over the OHL season.

We'll see how he does in the playoffs this season as I think it's safe to say the Bulls are pretty good favorites to win the East

You seem to know him quite well. Do you follow him around game to game? Perhaps scout him and shot list each save or goal?? Have you interviewed him and given him a personality quiz to fill out?? If so, your points could be valid... if not, you know absolutely nothing about Malcolm Subban and it would be best to keep your negative and uninformative posts to your self.

Malcolm is not a cocky kid and is usually rather quiet. I'd say he has some confidence and enough experience and that certainty that he can compete at high levels which shouldn't be considered as cocky. A little swagger is a good sign of some confidence and he'll do fine in the playoffs if the team is allowed to execute on their offense.

Burnett made two good trades and if he can control his need to trap,this team will be fun to watch again and go as far as Subban takes them.

Listen, Malcolm did a great job giving his team a chance to win most every night and they did win most every night using the dreaded 'Super'-Trap. But the team did the same even with Charlie in net both pre and post trades so the team has the depth and skill to win, be it with that SuperTrap or post trade predominantly without it.

Throw out the trap and the game scores go way up and scoring is happening very frequently and from guys that were slow to score under the Old System. But just remember this is about winning games now and however ugly that may look like on the ice it's gonna be the way things will be until either they win it all or die trying.

What an amazing game tonight on Friday Night Hockey against Niagara. Graovac, Quine, and J. Cramarossa were all stellar. Curtis and Gaunce also had exceptional games. If they come out like this every night, I truly believe they are a contending team.

I wonder what more the Bulls can do to make their hockey less "boring" to some of our fans. It's simply a good season getting better.

This scoring splurge during their 4 game winning streak is refreshing to see. Hopefully there will be a good crowd for tonight's game.

They pass the puck beautifully. The most romantic brand of hockey I have seen thus far in the OHL this season.

The trap will not win a championship in the OHL and at best it will win a period or 2.As a hockey fan 1st and a Bulls fan 2nd,I find entertainment is more important than winning.Hockey is a *game* for entertainment and not designed to be a release for fanatics.

Big divisional game tonight. Hopefully the Bulls can bounce back after a 4 day lay off.

Side note: I've actually been somewhat impressed with the play of Silas this season. Still has his turnover issues, but man can he block shots. What do you guys think the chances of him signing anywhere professionally are? Whether it's in the minors or in Europe somewhere

Silas always seems to be the easy scapegoat for the defense. I think he's been just fine this year and he's now starting to produce offensively as well. I'm pretty sure he won't sign an NHL contract but might be able to get a deal overseas somewhere.

Bulls defeat the Gens 4-1 with the captain leading the way with a pair.....Subban was solid in the nets and Zharkov missed on a penalty shot. Back in first place with three games in hand

Going to the game tonight in Peterborough. Only my second time attending a game this season.

I miss having season tickets (haven't had them since moving away to Trent University a few years back).

Going to definitely see some playoff games this year
