[QUOTE=dansk55;60528483]interesting question. it would depend on the health of jp. If he is good to go, you gotta play Dawe. Barrick works out but i don't see how you can put him in after the way Dawe played.

No offense to Dawe as he came in and did the job, but it isn't like he stole any wins. Although Barrick didn't play many games prior to his injury due to JP's great start to the season and the fact he was 100% then, he definitely won them a game in Brampton and in Saginaw early on if I recall. Dawe is sitting with almost 4.5 goals a game and a 8.74 save %. We have to remember that he is only there due to Barrick's injury. It's not a competition as to who is better or who will stay, it is simply Dawe coming in while their back-up was injured. No different than if they brought up a player to cover an injury. My guess is as soon as Barrick is declared healthy it is his spot to have back. Let's hope JP is healthy the rest of the way as we need him if we have any shot of winning any play-off games!

Completely agree, Once Barrick is back, he will be backup. I wouldn't be surprised if Dawe is sent back down.

As for Monday. It was horrible, but Plymouth took shots, and how many deflections were there? Or off the goalie's back. I've never seen that many bad bouces against us in one period. Plymouth had more shots in one game than we took in 2. You gotta put the puck on the net and hopefully something happens.
I could not believe how big Soo is. Wow. We were outmanned, soft and afraid of being hit.
I am not sure it always has to do with effort. I am not sure the talent is there. After two third of the first line, we have no talent per se. With how many forwards we cannot find a third on the top line. Our top 3 in the draft haven't got 20 points between them...Renaud, Hargrave, and Addessi. Hope summer brings something more positive in their play or the vision is filled with holes.
I think it was obvious that their vision at the draft was to get bigger, and they did do that----but at what cost. Having some knowledge of the 96 group, I don't think Hargrave was that bad of a pick, but I certainly question where the other two went. I certainly feel that there were better players available, but maybe others on this board with more knowledge can tell me if I am way off. My feeling is that they loved the size, but gambled because one had missed most of the year,and I think they took the other as a work in progress. Remember, they are still only sixteen and will probably improve, but based on production, the Sting have to be towards the bottom of the league with the performance of their rookies.

Agreed, Hargrave is starting to develop...still shy and needs to be more of a power forward that the "vision" intended. As for AR and JA, they have a long long way to go. If Hargrave is knocking at the door, AR and JA are still around the corner.
There will always be players who look good against their equal age level but fail to make the jump to the step midget to jr....jr. to pro.

Hergrave is certainly showing some potential to be an impact player and I think that comes from experience and opportunity (both with the Sting and the U17 squad).

Unlike Hargrave, Renaud does not see much ice time and most of that is sheltered. To be honest, I watched Renaud several times in his draft season and then caught most of the preseason action and I see a LOT of potential in him. At this point in time, I think it's a matter of confidence with Renaud. Once he starts gaining confidence and earning more opportunities I bet we will see him start to emerge.

Addesi is what he is - an energy type of player suited best for the bottom six. He remains a bit too slow footed (which often results in lazy penalties) to create offense but I do like his work ethic and energy.

Has there been any word on Basso? Last thing I heard was during Saturdays Plymouth game when CHOK said he went off hurt with his shoulder hanging and that usually indicated a separated shoulder. I hope they were wrong.

Talked to Jacques today and he said Basso was fine. Was at practice today.

X Sting B Alderson, now with SSM, signed an ELC with the Flyers today. To bad we aren't smart enough to keep some of these lads around and be patient with there development or improve are culture so they want to stay. All I know is Alderson and Char sure would be helpful this year and Hope would be nice to have around for the next couple years. Fortunately for them they all seemed to excel in a new environment. for Alderson.

Congrats to Charlie.Nice performance with Boucher and Moore.Moore and Charlie both got robbed. JP played outstanding again tonight.JP must be getting tired of the knucklehead plays that DeAngelo is doing on D.He got a delayed Penality and instead of going hard on the puck,he stood there like a Pilon only to watch London score.BENCH HIM UNTIL HE GETS IT.That was a classic NO DEFENCE in the final 3:30 of the game.Forwards and D getting caught in London's end turning the puck over to London for those great chances.I guess 2 goals up was not enough.Typical London win,out smart and out work them until they give you those gifts.Nice to read Sarault recognized the defensive blunders but not JOCKO.Still cant believe Sarnia's final 5 min.

Boucher could knock Stammer out of the record books tonight. Just tied him in Saginaw.

Edit: Boucher takes over sole control of the Sting goal record. #59

Edit: Boucher being credited with the 8th sting goal as well. Hattrick and 60 on the year.

It would appear the Anaheim Ducks have signed Charles Sarault, as per his own words on Facebook. Congrats!

Most underrated player in the OHL.he works his butt off for the team.He can control the puck and game.You dont see many players that can control the game like he can.Very hockey and puck smart.great shot,logs a pile of ice time,Great setup man but can knock it home when needed.Sarault,Boucher and JP have carried the Sting since loosing Gali.He should be considered MVP for the OHL.

Perfectly said.
He epitomizes what it takes to succeed. Kids pay attention.

The Sting need to finish 6th or 8th, Plymouth is the worst possible 1st round matchup.

What happened to Addesi 2 game suspension.It was posted on the OHL website and now taken down.The linesman screwed his fight up big time as he allowed the \Saginaw player to poke Addesi a few times as the linesman had a hold of Addesi only.Could it be the OHL admitted a screw up of officiating staff after reviewing the tape.It was also the cause of DeAngelo 3rd man in as he went to Addesi's rescue.

Anyone else notice the OHL seems to have taken away Boucher's 60th and hat trick goal against Saginaw and awarded it to Moore instead. Looks like Boucher still has 1 to go to hit that milestone unless the OHL website is incorrect ,which wouldn't be unheard of

That is in fact correct. As of now he sits at 59.

Boucher went to the ref after the goal and said it wasnt his but Moores.The off ice officials changed it then changed it back.

That was one fun game last night, nothing like taking the wind out of London's sails. Great comeback, boys. Dale Hunter pulled his usual temper tamptrum during overtime to intimidate the referees and it worked. Even the Sportsnet team commented on it! But the boys fought it off and got the win. Great night, I could not come away feeling better!!!
