MCI is not ready. Klassen and Pyett would both do better, as would Stu Bickel. He's too hesitant with the puck, too unstable on his skates. He's good positionally, has good straight speed and is a smart player, but he would be overmatched in the NHL right now. He needs to work on his game very hard during the summer, particularly his small step skating.

Bridge lost a 5-4 lead. DiPietro really sucks. Another 5 goals given up tonight. He has a 3.31 GAA and .883SV% in the AHL. Just terrible.

With Bridge and WOR losing tonight, they are pretty much eliminated as potential competitors to Hartford. It's awfully hard to make up 9 points in 17 games. Same for Albany, St. Johns and Adirondak.

For the first time all year, Hartford is solidly in the playoffs with some breathing room. It is 6th in points, 7th in points per game and has a decent number of points on teams ranked 9 and 10. It can even take the 5 seed, which is only a point above (but CT played two extra games). Over the last 21 games, CT picked up a little over 69% of the points and has been the best team in the AHL.

Always nice to come over, and read about the Whale playing well. Good on them.

Rangers flounder, but Whale win. It's good to live 10 mins away from the team that's playing well! Going up to Springfield on Saturday night. First time up there this year. We usually go to all the road games but every time they were in Springy this season we were busy. I can't wait!

Why in God's name would he want out of that contract paying him 4.5 million dollars forever? And if he wanted, I'm sure the isles would gladly let him go. All he'd have to do is just not report to the team anymore.

Seriously, very disappointing to hear you say you would not call him up this season. I thought maybe at least a cup of coffee.

Best case scenario is that the Rangers and Tortorella's effing grinding and dump n' chase system collapse and they don't make the POs, meaning Newbury, Kreider, Gilroy and Miller are back with the Whale!

with Rangers sucking on offense, why not scratch Boyle Pyatt and replace them with Thomas or Ferriero or Yogan.. im sure they cant do much worse maybe they would provide a spark and remind the team that no one roster spot is safe

Boyle/miller/richards are Torts surrogate sons so they will always get icetime even though they mess up all the time. Pyatt is a mystery because he has sucked for about 30 games now yet he never gets scratched

The Whale is one of only 6 teams not playing tonight, but a lot of key games tonight.

1. #8 Hershey is playing #11 Albany. Both are competitors, but the Whale opened up some space vs. Albany, while Hershey is right on their butt, so rooting for Albany. Anything but an OT will leave me satisfied because if Hershey beats Albany, they are completely out of contention. But I'd rather Hershey lose.

2. #5 Portland is playing #9 Monarchs. Portland has 1 more point in 2 fewer games, while M&Ms have 5 points less in 1 fewer game. Hartford is playing well, and with the addition of Hrivik, I am hopeful, so let's get greedy here and hope the M&Ms take out Portland, so that Hartford can go for the 5 seed. That said, this one game where I'm definitely ok with any non-OT result. Just don't want this to be a 3 point game.

3. #3 Providence is playing #7 Wilkes-Barrie/Scranton. Hartford can't can't up to Pro (11 points are too much to make up this late), and WBS is only a point behind with an extra game on hand, so WBS is just slightly ahead in points per game over Hartford. Definitely need Pro to come through for us and take out WBS.

4. #1 Syracuse is playing #10 Norfolk. We can't catch up to 'Cuse, but Norfolk is only 7 points behind with 2 extra games left. The Whale is close to leaving Norfolk in the dust, but not there yet. A cold streak by the Whale or a hot streak by Norfolk will allow them to catch up. Rooting for 'Cuse.

5. Adirondak is playing Bingo, but the former is too far below the Whale and the latter is too far ahead, so it doesn't matter. I guess if Bingo collapses, we could catch up to them, so go ADK!

All the other games are in the Western Conference.

Albany won. Hartford now has 3 points extra in one extra game on the 8 seed.

Portland won. I don't mind this result, as it means that Hartford has 5 extra points in the same number of games. With only 15 games left in the season, that's a decent lead.

WBS lost in the shootout, and is now tied in both points and games with Hartford for the 6/7 place.

Dammit, down 4-1 in the third, Norfolk came back to win it 5-4. I was sure Syracuse will be able to hold a 3 goal lead considering they have the best record in the AHL, but this is minor league hockey for you - leads blown all the time.

Had #9 Norfolk lost, the Whale would be in a stronger position in terms of being guaranteed a playoff spot.

Bingo won, as expected since it is a good team and ADK sucks (but Hartford seems to lose to the ADK for no apparent reason).

===========================================

Not a terrible night, but it wasn't good at all. This puts pressure on Hartford to win tomorrow against the tough Springfield team.

I really hope to make the playoffs. I think playing a couple rounds of playoff hockey would be very good for this young team that is learning the ropes of the pro game.

They're in a better position than the Rangers to make the playoffs, so at least there is that.

Beacon, just out of curiosity, if this news about Hank having a concussion turns out to be true, is Talbot ready to take on the responsibilities of backing up Marty for as long as he needs to

Would it matter? If Hank went out one of Mission or Talbot would be up, ready or not.

Anyone know what the deal is with Fasth, Nicholls and McColgan? Are they all coming to the Whale? I know Fasth could just go straight to NYR. but there hasn't been any updates other than those on Zucc...
