Normally I would never say this but I'd be OK with losing the next game. It would bring O'Connor one game closer to return. And I'd prefer to get a loss under the belt just cause I'd rather face the adversity against a Laughton-less Generals squad than in the next round...especially game 1.
Yes, that's what I mean. Hall won't play this week, Theoret doesn't look like he'll play tomorrow. Not sure about later in the week. O'Connor is obviously still suspended. So none of the missing players will be back for the next game.
Great team effort - congratulations boys! Hard to say whether the extra time off for Hall and Theoret plus some time for other nicked up guys to get rested is better or worse than burning a couple extra games in O'Connor's suspension. Regardless, we have what we have. The nice thing is barring a Belleville / Sudbury sweep of the Colts, O'Connor won't finish his OHL career in the press box. That would have just been wrong.
Ice Dogs fan just wondering how Theoret has been for you guys?

This. It's feels like he has been injured for the majority of the time since we got him in a trade. He was healthy for a streak games but unfortunately just got injured again a couple game ago. But in the games that he has been in he has played very well. He can play physical and seems to be able to find the back of the net quite easily.
