Sather needs to go get some better D for Hartford.
Kids that can be called up in a pinch.
There are few teams out there that have an abundance of D prospects that have been sliding down the depth chart.
if we signed Conner Allen from UMASS if Whale looking for Depth on D why wouldnt they sign Mike Marcou who was a ECHL all star for Greenville this season @25 pts in 54 games and a plus 19 .If you watched UMASS where Allen played Marcou would be more then capable for the AHL. Would be like Partlett and Klassen for whale from ECHL
In the end, the Whale branding was a hamfisted marketing move by Howard Baldwin. He took on a bad rent deal at the XL Center (wah wah, he TOOK it, he didn't have to) and went bankrupt after staging an outdoor hockey game in his first season that was incredibly unsuccessful (it also fell on the coldest day of the month and he ended up paying more for snow removal than he thought). I am pretty sure there are still open lawsuits against Whaler Sports and Entertainment. He couldn't even pay Reebok for uniforms. Nothing he did improved my game day experience and I'm glad that era is gone.
Ha ha ha... I loved that name and called them that all the time. However, I'm very excited that my jersey is relevant again. Whooo!!!! My game worn jersey of one of the most obscure players ever is back in the rotation!
Hrivik won't be one of the call ups if the Rangers make the playoffs.
I agree with you but I am wondering why you think that?
For me it is simply that Kreider and Miller are way too important to the future of the franchise and will get first opportunities. Plus they have extensive experience so far this year with the Rangers.
