I think Zucker has a bit of a maturity issue. Didn't do what it takes in the off-season to get ready for this (ala Granlund), and now this? Trade bait.
Next call-up may well be Bulmer. Two goals in two games. New coach in Houston. Can play 3rd or 4th line, and there would be no issues in terms of trying to find a slot on the 1st or 2nd line for him. Keep in mind, Coyle will be coming back.
Looked like he caught him pretty good. Before I go and condemn him I want to hear the other side of the story (and not from their side). OKC hasn't been what I would call clean in recent times. I'm not necessarily defending him, I just want to hear the other side of it.
With that being said, it looks like a couple games at least.
“We had done a great job of (penalty) killing,” Kleinendorst said. “We take the (10-minute match penalty) by Zucker and in a situation like that I thought the heart was there, but again they [OKC] played desperate.”
Am I the only one who thinks Omark should just keep his ****ing head up? That's what you get for surfing 'round the ice like that. It's a big boys' game.
Might be a suspension, probably deserved, but that was the right play. If you see someone with their head down, of course you're gonna nail him. That's just hockey 101.
Absolutely. It's just tough to judge anything from that vid. I'm liking that he took the initiative and righted a supposed wrong in his mind. Sick of when our team just takes a beating and won't lay down a little justice.
He didn't even play at the Traverse City tourney because of the knee injury.
He has been injured quite a bit the past two years. Also, while this may not necessarily be a good sign about his maturity, I understand he didn't get along well with the prior coach. So perhaps the change is doing him good.
I thought he should have made the Wild, what two years ago, due to his play that first nine games.
