2014/15 San Antonio Rampage Thread

With it being July 1st, the new season is officially underway. What better time to start this season's version?

Team needs:

#1 Goalie
Top 6 FWD (C/LW)
PMD D-man

in that order.

I wonder what goalie can we grab to start in San Antonio. Can't Houser be slotted in 1G, has he been lackluster?

He was VERY inconsistent. Very good stretches surrounded by awful stretches. I'd like to see an AHL vet brought in with NHL backup ability on a two-way. Drew MacIntyre is at the top of my wishlist. Probably a longshot, though.

As of today, I would think the defense looks like this for now (and think that 2 d-men are needed):

Robak/? - Petrovic
Racine - ?
Taker - Weegar
extra: McFadden

Thats assume Robak clears waivers or someone else would need to be found to replace him. Defense is gonna need work no matter who's playing in goal if you ask me.

On forwards, I would think that there's a lot of talent there but definitely could use a veteran leader. I do like the forward group though with the talent involved: Shore, Howden, Trocheck, Grimaldi, Butler, Brickley, Wilson, Shaw, McFarland, Martindale, Hodges & Crabb are all signed and probably expected in SA to start the season. Definitely could use another forward as you said, especially if guys like Trocheck or Shore get called up. Not gonna attempt to create lines with those guys but should provide some interesting games I would think (I see plenty of truculence in that group of guys).

The Rampage should get Shore and Trocheck, that's fairly good.

Rampage need good core AHL players. Borrowing Shore and Trochek won't cure what ails San Antonio.

Please don't sign Kyle Rau. He has a national championship to win. Thanks.

Jimmy Hayes, Howden and Weeger also. If I am not mistaken Rocco Grimaldi signed as well.

Hayes would have to pass through waivers.

Don't think he'll make it to SA.

Any way we can get this one stickied to replace last year's thread?

The sooner we can wipe out the historical evidence of that garbage season, the better.

Your goalie is Ellis, you might as well merge this thread to that pile of garbage.

As far as I can remember we have Sergei Gaiduchenko who plays in the KHL for quite some time posting decent numbers and is a huge goalie. He has also had good training camps with us. Hope he comes again this year and is signed, could address the goalie situation.

I think Zanon was with the team somewhat last season too. I dont think he's the caliber of d-man they need but it probably pushes McFadden down the depth chart most likely. I guess Olson is that top 6 forward that Nate was asking for.

Seems like a good top 6 option, based off his stat line.

Like the Olson signing quite a bit. Versatile forward who can play on the wing, but slide to center in case one of Trocheck/Shore are called up/traded.

LOVE the Zanon signing. He's not speedy...like at all...but he's a shot blocking machine and is smart as hell in his own end. The underrated part of this signing is that it gives the Rampage blue line the veteran presence it doesn't have. This is a young defensive corps, and they needed a veteran to come in and be a leader.

Zanon/Petro
Racine/Parlett
Weegar/Taker
McFadden

Could still use another PMD, but if Weegar works out, that's a servicable blue line.

Weegar seems to have a good head on his shoulders, what a great move to pick him up in the 7th round.

Nate- bigger question, after the 4 obvious Soup, Guds, Kuli, and Mitchell, which Dmen will round out the 7 on the big club? Olsen probably? Then who's the last and also healthy scratch D-man?
