Wow unbelievable how much we got for Cammy, sure Holland might not ever make the NHL but a 100+ pt season in the WHL is no accident. Hamilton is gonna be super talented next year. do you think gomez could help them with the title next year?
Not sure why some people aren't getting this. You NEED to know what Engqvist can bring to you. And it's not by calling him one day and sending him packing the other day that you'll know. And frankly, at this point, there's actually no real desire of having Hamilton make the playoffs or not. It's not like we'd be dressing a whole lot of future down there right now that would need the playoffs experience. Will be important to succeed for that team the day that Tinordi, Beaulieu, Ellis, Kristo and Co are there. But now? Who really has a shot for our team? Dumont, Naatinen, Schultz, St-Denis and Conboy. Conboy and Dumont are hurt and won't play in the playoffs. So sorry for Hamilton fans, but at this point, it's WAY MORE important to know how those guys will react with us than what they do down there.
Frankly, I would have probably called Naatinen instead of Leblanc 'cause I know Leblanc is part of my team next year. Or even really call Schultz instead of calling him for fun like they did before.
With the callup of those two guys, i hope they are not planning on taking any toughness out of the lineup whatsoever. Don't want to go back to watching that girly hockey anymore. Sit gomaz, he couldn't entertain 2 yr old fans.
Sigh, why not send Leblanc down....he's not ready and has more to benefit from AHL time than playing 4th line minutes. Can't wait until we have managerial cleansing.
Absolutely. As far as I'm concerned, tonight proved that Leblanc needs more time in Hamilton, as does Geoffrion. It's hard to blame management though with guys like Gionta, Moen, Darche and Gomez all out of the line-up.
