I realize it will be a difficult conversation for George and Gord but the time has come. Hopefully they find Scott a home elsewhere in the league but if not he should be in Wellington.

Zharkov-Gaunce-Brassard 100% 1st line IMO
BIG 1st line of very skilled vets
Kuptsov-Cramarossa-Berisha
Skilled Left winger + Skilled vet center + Skilled right winger
Sandlak--Simmonds-Hooey
Bump and Grind line of vets and PK unit
Carnevale-Petti-Lemmon
Young energy line with some crash and bang!
Cramarossa - up and comer being groomed
Curtis - Traded, then Heffernan comes in

Silas-Subban 2nd power D line
Shaw-Desousa
Bignell

Subban #1 for sure until he leaves for the bigs

^You're probably right about the top line, I've just enjoyed watching the chemistry between Zharkov-Cramarossa-Brassard and I think the depth is there to find chemistry for Gaunce on 1B line. I like your Kuptsov-Berisha combo. Would be willing to keep Simmonds if Curtis could be dealt for some value. Petti has impressed me enough so far to be considered top 9. Already looks more ready to produce offense than Carnevale, Lemmon, Simmonds etc.

U guys are all out to left field! There's NO way they should keep Simmonds over Curtis. Both can play the pk but Curtis is heads over Simmonds in hockey sense, offensive capibilities and more valuable to the team. Lets put the organization FIRST for a change and trade or release Mr. Simmonds. The potential in Heffernan, Cramorassa and Petti are to great. I know i can speak for many season ticket holders.

If the scrimmages are any indication Stephen Silas will be mentoring young Daniel DeSousa as his defensive partner. Hopefully the fans do a complete 360, and begin to cheer Silas this year?

Curtis would also fetch a much better return than Simmonds. I don't see a use for either in the top 9 and don't care which one is dealt but one veteran forward needs to go.

I would like to see Simmonds and hooey gone. Hooey doesnt seem like a team guy and as nice of a guy that Simmonds is, he needs to get out of the OHL. He is not OHL calaber and never has been. I like our D more than i have in a long time. and our first couple lines are stacked. Sandlak Petti Curtis could be a pretty clutch 3rd line if you ask me.

Problem is that Simmonds will be here for another year regardless of whether Fans or others think differently. I'm not saying he can't play the role he's been given well cause I think he can. Curtis on the other hand would definitely want an opportunity elsewhere much like Corson and clearly should fetch something of value in return if even some nice draft pick(s).

M.Cramarossa and Heffernan were officially signed today, so all four 16 year old cards have been used (Petti, Desousa, Cramarossa, Heffernan).

Shouldn't it be Simmonds?
I can't really see Cramarossa or Heffernan getting much more than 4th line shifts. Probably some healthy scratches as well.

To the real bulls fan....yes.... simmonds must go, we'll have to wait and see what happens. I hope George puts the team first?

Just curious but does anyone think at some point in the next couple of years, the bulls will acquire M Subban from the knights. He's Malcolm and Jordan's cousin.

Adding another small D who definitely doesn't have Jordan's skating or defensive skills is not a good idea.

Highly doubtful that happens.

With the bulls not dressing half the team and kingston icing there entire starting team, the bulls had way to many turnovers. Some of the younger fronts impressed me, DiPerna, Bennett and Watson.
For the bulls DeSousa will be great but needs to simplify hes game. Petti and Heffernan will be good also. I have not been a fan of M. Cramarossa in the past but last night he really opened my eyes, he was tough on the puck and played his position well. Some players that i wasnt impressed with was Scott Simmonds(need alot more from a 19yrold) Nic Shunock (not a chance of sticking) and Sergey Kupstov (i'll give him the benefit of the doubt for now) Charlie Graham also had a bad game.

I would agree with you on almost every point. That being said....Sergey Kuptsov will be just fine, and grant it Charlie let in a couple bad goals but also made some nice saves. It's tough to be left on your own when the defence vacates their positions to leave the goalie to face the oposition all alone....(in which Jordan Subban did many times). Also leaving 3 Kingston players in front of the net without a Bulls player to take them out, also makes it difficult on the goalie. Many players needed to give an honest effort last night and didn't seem to do so.

Jordan was on the ice for way too many goals against...I'd like to see him back to the way he was playing mid-way through last year. Charlie was left out to dry, too many Fronts left standing in front of him without being taken out. Too many penalties for sure as well and too many solo efforts. It's only the first pre-season game and George will not tolerate that type of play so look for a rebound game tonight with more defensive responsibility from many players.
