After watching yesterdays game in my HD, clean stream, I have to admit that this team was built perfectly until the klingons from the Hawks were forced onto it.
Leddy has been brutal, just brutal in his own zone. Lalonde, who is similar offensively to Leddy, was far and away the better d-man last night.
Kruger is possibly the weakest player on the Hogs, and proved as much last night. With speculation that Hawk brass has been having some sort of influance on how the Hogs are stacked up, it hurts the Hogs that Kruger is actually out there right now, he isnt that good.
Its embarrassing to the extent that players such as St. P have been head and shoulders better then NHL players on this team.
Morin has been the best player on the Hogs so far. Scored a couple, plays adequate defense, and has been tough to play against along the boards. Morin as of now, is the Hawks number one prospect considering he is doing this against men.
So much for pre-season predictions when the puck actually drops.

Reason: Stop it with the advertisements.
Kevin Hayes scores a goal and is the 3rd star of the game for a 3-0 BC win. It is only 2 games, but Hayes so far is playing great from what I've read. In both games. Hawksfan50 might've been wrong for criticizing him after "only" scoring 1 assist in some preseason game.
It looks like they might've moved him from center...or he isn't taking faceoffs. I saw him play 10+ times last season and he was always playing 2nd line center with Kreider on his wing. But now it looks like Michael Sit is getting more minutes as a sophomore and the faceoffs are going to Sit/Arnold/Mullane.
