Also curious about early impressions of Kubalik.

They had a good weekend. Team seems fired up, but you'd expect them to, as many of them are playing for a contract. Gagnon is finding the net regularly. Kubalik seems to have a good offensive sense, but the jury is still out.

Too close to these for my liking:



I love green uni's, but the Riders have ruined it for me.

Those Rider jerseys are a thing of beauty. What could you possibly be implying?

Anything to do with the Riders is seen as a form of heresy in Manitoba

In the otherwise useless facts file,

Football is not played here at all, and has no history here. It's kind of odd, but I think it's due to tthe different history of this place pre 1949.

IceCaps sign Matthew Kirzinger to ATO:

Quote:
Kirzinger, 25, played in 11 games with Ferris State University this season. In that time, the Leroy, SK native recorded four points (1G, 3A) and 17 penalty minutes. He has played in 130 games with Ferris State over four seasons recording 68 points (27G, 41A) and 165 penalty minutes.

Matthew Kirzinger
Center
Born Feb 13 1988 -- Leroy, SASK
Height 5.10 -- Weight 180 -- Shoots R
Sounds like a guy who battled back from injury this last season.

Zinger seems to like pint size ruffians. Also Zinger signed Zinger to an ATO.

My stream wasn't working...

How did everyone look?
How was Saponari's debut?
Anyone know why the new guy, Kubalik, was scratched?

Team has been playing much better now that some egos have been ditched (bye Machacek, what a waste of space he was this season.)

Hehe, IceCaps going all-in. Might as well end the season on a positive note.

This game's possession is very one sided for the IceCaps... hopefully they get something out of it.

I like how some of the players fight their way infront of the net... Jets need more of that.

What's O'Dell's game like from a physicality perspective? Like it or shy away? How big/sturdy is he?

I wouldn't make that much of it.
Machacek also was tied for 2nd for winning the hardest working IceCaps award. He wasn't the same but I think the narrative of room cancer can be overstated. Most of these professionals know it's in their best interests to strive their hardest regardless of someone who wasn't. He definitely didn't do as well as normal and I'm sure it effected the game of the players somewhat, but there is no way one player can cause that much when the other players have way too much riding on their own performance.

I think there was some terrible luck involved plus a really young D-core.
*Pasquale and Dekanich have way worse SV% then their norm. (Pasquale stole a lot of games last season)
*Almost all of the IceCaps sharp shooters have been shooting below their normal SH% (Maxwell, Maceneaur, Gagnon, Jaffaray, Machacek, Burmistrov, King, Cormier, etc were all way under).
*Melchiori, Chiarot, O`Neill and Sol are all playing technically their first full season of AHL pro.

6' 190ish lbs...
Not a big guy. Mostly makes plays behind the net or at the top slot. More of a goalscoring centre than setup assist C. Can also play RW.
On the line Mouillierat does a lot of the setting up.
Lunden has been the guy doing the dirty work infront of the net for the line.

3-1

O`Dell with his 25th on the PP

Gagnon scores a SH, which now makes Gagnon leading the team in consecutive games with points (11).
