Just my 2 cents.
I'm listening to the online radio feed and they mentioned that Saad is hurt and out for 1 to 2 more weeks. They also said Leddy is out and is day to day. Not surprisingly they did not mention what the injuries were or if they were upper or lower body.

Interesting, I didn't know he was injured, that'd explain it then. Everything I've read said he was just being scratched.

Good to know about Leddy cause I was wondering why he wans't playing tonight.

Hogs are getting lit up so far, down 2-0 in the first.

Nyquist is going to be really good for the Wings.

Smith nets a re-direct off a shot from Lalonde. Pirri also gets an assist.

Smith has looked great all season and Lalonde has been solid as well.

Bollig on a line with Kruger instead of Beach makes no sense to me.

Hayes with a nice SHG to tie the game at 3. He's been very consistent throughout the course of the year.

Kyle Beach with a quick goal after Hayes'. What a snipe by Beach, kid has so much talent, he really needs a bigger role.

Romers, curious to see what you think about the players so far.

For D- Stanton and Lalonde have been the standouts for me

For F- Pirri, Smith, Hayes and Beach have all looked great

Disappointments...

D- Olsen

F- Leblanc, Shaw

lol Flukey goal for Rockford. Just fired on net and I think it bounced around and in.

Shaw gets credit.

5-4 now.

4 penalties by the Hogs this period. That is just giving the game away. Grand Rapids scores to tie it up. Clendening and Stanton with 2 penalties each this period.

5-5.

Bad penalty and Shaw losing his man on the PK leads to a 5-5 tie

To be honest I totally forgot about the game and just tuned in the start of the 3rd period.

Clendening looks bad to me, but I expected a rough transition. Should have stayed 1 more year at BU IMO.

This has been the best I've seen Beach play so far this year. He was mostly invisible the other games I saw but is really in the game.

Pirri looks good as well.

I was confused by the Clendening signing to be honest, he didn't look great at BU to me. He's nice on the PP, good poise but that's about it.

Beach has his best game of the young season tonight but has been stuck on the 4th line which I just don't get considering Bollig is playing with Kruger and Shaw.

The players/program were out of control

Mark McNeill had an assist as Prince Albert pummeled Moose Jaw 5-1. Travis Brown had an assist for MJ.

Was at the Hogs-Griffins game last night. Left corner seats in Hogs offensive zone for two periods. Saw five of the six goals, only not seeing Kruger's goal (tip from a Lalonde shot??). Have a lot of photos, and will try to upload some later. Leddy and Saad scratched, and Saad didn't even skate in the pregame warmup as far as I could see. Injured? Third line was St. Pierre centering Brookbank and LeBlanc, fourth was Flick with Beach and Hayes (might have Brookbank and Hayes switched).

Some observations.

Kruger: Centered Shaw and Bollig/others. Looked much stronger on his skates than last year. Only knocked down a couple of times. Took the two hardest hits of the game, both in front of me, as well as numerous other hits. Goes to the boards and corners, battles for the puck, consistently hustles on the backcheck, and overall has picked up his game. Sees the developing play better than most, overcoming his somewhat modest skills with the puck and his (relative) lesser strength. He made 4 passes to a zone without looking, including once in the defensive zone, and turned the puck over all but once. Annoying. Displayed some patience with the puck behind the offensive net, but forced passes. Doesn't really have much in the way of offensive creativity though, aside from a few passes which really were nothing special. Has an interesting move on the faceoff where he ties up the other center and kicks the puck back to the defense. Did that 3-4 times. There were a handful of times he didn't take the faceoff, typically when St.Pierre was on the ice with him. Overall a strong game for Kruger.

Pirri Centered Smith and Morin in easily the strongest offensive line of the night. Consistent pressure offensively. Pirri moves in all areas of the offensive zone controlling the puck, finding open space, and making plays. He tends to avoid the physical play in the corners and along the boards in both zones, instead going in and trying to retrieve the puck much like Kane does. While not bad defensively in the d-zone, he backchecks hard inconsistently. Overall he was reasonably responsible defensively in 2 out of 3 zones (O and D), neutral ice could be better. He made a great pass to Beach for his goal, had another assist I believe, and scored the OT winner on a laser one-timer from the right wing dot. Just missed that photo. He looks like a future second line center. Overall a strong to very strong game for Pirri.

Morin/Shaw Both make plays happen on the ice. Shaw a little stronger on his skates, Morin a more physical player overall, but a tad slow skating. Shaw is not surprisingly a pest, always in the middle of the play. Morin does the dirty work in the corners (Pirri mops up), Shaw goes everywhere. Both players have a future somewhere in the NHL. Strong game for Shaw. Good game for Morin.

Hayes and Beach Surprisingly mature game from Beach, and both players did some PK time. Hayes scored on a nice backhand on a breakaway while on the PK. Have some photos of that. Beach scored on a lasered one-timer from the slot on a pretty feed from Pirri from behind the net. Both big bodies, both into the grinding, both a little slow afoot. Beach had a chance to bust it down the wing once, and didn't have enough speed to make the turn to the goal. Future 3rd-4th liners in the NHL, with spot 1st-2nd line duty or more depending on progression. Good games from both.

Others: Smith was ok...neither really good or bad. Flick, LeBlanc, Brookbank were unspectacular. St. Pierre is all of 5'6" at most, and is really tiny out there compared to everyone else. Has a lot of heart, but looks like a "tweener".

Hutton was ok the one period I saw him, but 4 goals were scored at the other end. One looked like a tip, one on the power play from the slot, and two others.

Defense was good but not spectacular. Lalonde the smoothest skater and the best at moving the puck out of the defensive zone. Lavin and Stanton seem similar. Clendining with a couple of bad penalties (one allowing the 5-all tie). Olson was big if unspectacular, with no glaring errors the one period I had a good look at him. The defensmen did keep the puck in the offensive zone reasonably well.
