Didn't know Postma and Sawada were hurt. Two fan favs out for tonight. Let's hope Eddie plays his best tonight and has mile one on wheels like always. Cant wait to see some live ahl action tonight. Let's go IceCaps
Was there a reason Burmi was split up from Antro and Wellwood last season I can't remember? I was watching a bunch of games from the begining of the season on the plane today and they were dominant together their puck possession was unbelievable.
Hey fellow fans, just home from the game, quick points before I go to bed
Burmistrov is downright dominant. In all aspects of the rink this guy dominates. He's the best player I've seen for stripping the puck off the opposition on a back check. His time in the AHL is really going to boost his confidence.
ONeil had a poor game. The poorest out of all icecaps. Looked out of shape IMO.
Telegin is going to be a stud, this kid is huge and he can skate like a pro. I was very impressed.
Chiraot, I was never an overly huge fan. I find him slow. As a fan I don't have much confidence, I understand he's young but sometimes you just know.
Redmond was the second best player on the ice for the icecaps. Burmistrov was number 1. Redmond will be a great NHL #2 dman. Very very impressed with him tonight.
For the record, I don't base my personal assessments on scoresheets and box scores, I find they can be misleading without actually knowing what was taking place.
