Does anyone know how Andrew Andricopolos and Joey Ryan are doing for the Remparts?
I saw them this past Sunday in Halifax, the whole Quebec team was bad, but i though Ryan was stood out in the badness department. Terrible passes, couldn't pin someone in his own end, and ended up taking a penalty in the third which Halifax scored on. The game ended 3-2 by the way. Anyway, it was only one game though, and Quebec was on the tail end of three road games in three days.
As for Andricopolos, i didn't notice him too much, which i guess is a good thing. Quebec was on the defensive the whole game. The only offence was coming from Radulov, and briefly from Lavalle and Henessy
Ryan was perhaps the most improved player over last year's season. He continues to get better, although the rate of improvement has tapered off. I still like him for his grit. I think he has good up-side potential. He's still only 16.
Androcopoulos is another story. He hasn't gotten any better since coming to Quebec. He lacks upper body strength and can't get by on his skating alone in the Q where most everyone can skate. He doesn't hit (at all), doesn't fight, and he hasn't put up any offensive numbers. He should think about becoming a forward.
