Your information is not reliable. According to the Sting heirarchy, Anderson is back 100%. Sarault, Charlitti, Hottot and Alberga will all be in camp. Luciani will not be invited back. I expect them to move Alberga before the season and carry 4 until the OA cut down date. I expect them to move Anderson at the deadline.
And what makes you think your information is reliable?
herd the same rumour. continue to hear rumours of many not happy and wanting out even those who were considered the pulse of the team last year. issues need to be adressed and fixed if we hope to rebound from jacques disaster of last year. would be nice if we could trade are coach and gm but that would require some other team actualy wanting him. i am so sick of being the laughing stock of the league. at least kingston is headed in the right direction. and guelph and saggy figured it out and righted there ship. we spin are wheels and make the same mistakes year after year.
on a different note congradulations to galy and yaki. thank you for giving us sting fans something to be proud of. and thanks to mcqueen for bringing them both here.
Number 1 & 3!! Congrats Nail and Alex. All of your hard work paid off. Unfortunately I don't think we will see either back in a Sting uniform.
Nah, you'll see Gally. Habs don't rush players out of junior.
Who will be Galchenyuk's linemates if Yakupov isn't back? Reid Boucher? Charlie Sarault?
as for Galy's linemates - sure those 2 may start the season there but I would begin to look at the strong contenders in the OHL for his possible destination since JB will need to recoup some of the future potential he squandered away last year...sting will even throw in an assistant coach I'm sure....PS: I would have taken him #1, you'll love this kid in Montreal and as a leaf fan it pains me to say it
As per Loosepucks twitter account, the Columbus Blue Jackets have chosen not to renew the contracts of 4 scouts - including Andrew Shaw - former Director of Player Personnel (04-08) of the Sting & who currently resides in Sarnia.
Could he be the new Head Scout we see for Sarnia?
Sting select Russian RW, Nikolai Goldobin (5'11, 154), a late 95 birthdate (2014 eligible) in 1st Round. Then select Czech Republican defenseman David Nemecek (6'3", 198), early 95 (2013 eligible) in 2nd round of today's CHL Import Draft. Sounds like both will be coming over this year & enter the lineup.
This is what we currently have on our roster:
I have included all 5 of our OA's because I have no idea which 3-4 will begin the season on the Sting's roster.
Positionally, I dont have everyone slotted in to what they specifically play, just wanted to throw it all out there and see what people think.
LW C RW
Boucher Galchenyuk Goldobin
D. Brown Sarault (OA) Hottot (OA)
Nikandrov Alberga (OA) Hargrave
Renaud Latta Mater
Addesi Hnatiw Dundas
Still a pretty good line up there, Makraayan.
Another Russian sniper, and a solid D prospect, not bad at all!
I am sure that GOAL!dobin is bigger than what they have him listed (154)
There seems to be some pretty inaccuarate weights--the CHL site had Barbashev at something like 130ilbs...lol
With July being a quiet period with the OHL trade Freeze until August 1st, I would expect to hear news of some hockey operations changes (ie. new Head Scout, etc), as well as some commits to the team (ie. Cam Ashley).
Also, I've heard that the 'Coyote Jack's' title of the restaurant inside the arena is no more, and it will be run by the Sting organization/arena and such. Was going to ask if anyone could provide a little more light in regards to this change, but then I found this in the Sarnia Observer archives. http://www.theobserver.ca/2012/07/05...-at-rbc-centre
The Montreal Canadians could announce shortly the development under contract to their first choice at the last repÍchage, Alex Galchenyuk. That is what the agent of the player Igor A. Larionov has indicated to the VAT chain Sports, Saturday. "We have nothing finalized yet, but i have to meet with [the director-general] Marc Bergevin next week and we could soon come to an agreement", has entrusted A. Larionov, attached to his office in Bloomfield Hill, in the State of Michigan.
Davis Brown tore it up in Junior B last year. Really good goal-scorer. Could put up some solid numbers if put a line with a nice playmaker.
From Jr. B to OHL is a BIG jump in skill level, speed and smarts. Brown is a great shooter, a little on the smallish size but could help get some much needed goals for the team. He will have to learn to add an extra dimension to his game to find real success at the OHL level. Should be a better year for him with a regular roster spot.
