Comparable leagues, I'd give the edge to the KHL though.
I'm not saying it proves the KHL is better.

They are different leagues, but perhaps better players and worse players in the KHL due to the rules for rosters.

Kadri was playing a nice game but great for skills his other parts of the game has improved but not to the point I'd personally he's fully ready for the NHL. However for a young kid breaking the ice in the NHL, he's ready. He's bulkier than before too but he needs more strengthening for sure. I was so pissed that he missed a goal JUST by an INCH! Stupid post.

Colborne definitely exited more earlier than I've wanted however this guy is special he has his limelight stolen from Kadri but he's a good one folks. Believe it with a bit more polish he will be a solid addition. He doesn't seem like much or doesn't show that flash but trust me he has that skill more so than people think so IMO. Maybe that's what the hidden potential people were talking about.

Gards is all but done as I've said in the AHL what's expected of him. He's shooting more and slowly getting more points, need I say more? He's ready for the bigs and I hope he works on that pass.

Blacker was good but there were times he just seemed a bit out of place IMO.

Mckegger only proved my idea that it's going to be a while before he is ready for the bigs IMO. He was absolutely gassed up at one point, where he had to switch early after taking some good strides, his acceleration has improved a LOT though, assuming due to his training under Underhill.

[B]Ryan was an absolute beast, score or not he will be a hockey player. He did everything right and was just great, from blocking shots to taking hits for your players (stortini). He is a guy who doesn't take crap if your teammate is getting picked on, loved him when he stood up for Acton[/B].

D'amigo is slowly getting there but it seems that eakins is mostly putting him in the areas of defense rather than the offense this time around, he was great on the PK.

Brad Ross with the limited time he played was a beast, killed people several times and was chirping on and off lol. I met up with him after the game, he's a really chill dude and totally the opposite of how he is on the ice.

Holzer looked good as well and as ready as he can be for the NHL bottom pair.

Mike Kotska is an awesome dude off the ice as well lol. We met up with his friends lol they were going crazy hahah. He's built but he's shorter than I have thought, so it might be a harder for him to crack in the NHL more so that I had initially thought.

Speaking of height...Jesus Aucoin is short man lol.

Last but not least...Scrivens.....oh how good you were till that stupid stupid ass powerplay screw up....GARDS WAS ON YOUR LEFT DAMN IT !!! Anyways he was quiet but good IMO, showed the older patient form compared the past few starts.

If there are any player or prospects that I have missed, tell me and I should be able to tell you about them from the game.

Edit: Deschamp was good for that goal but man was he quiet afterwards lol.
Kenny Ryan doesnt get his dues IMO. Ryan has the skillset and willlingness to do things that will almost guarantee him a spot in the NHL.

Dump and Chase guy, small in stature and short on Skill. We can't even get an ECHL francise to take on our Prospects, what does that tell you.

Kenny Ryan has a long way to go before he is offers something that 100's of other guys don't - but hopefully he can get there

There is no rush - he has 2-3 years to continue to improve before they would consider him not worth re-signing - that is if he continues to develop

Good to see this team back to their winning ways. They look like the dominant team that made it to the Calder Cup finals last year, and Frattin and Kadri seem be picking up where they left off before their injuries.

As I said if this persisted towards the end of november then we had some trouble.

Yep, I figured it was just a Calder Cup hangover. Not to mention key prospects getting injured with shorter than usual periods to train prior to the season starting.

Good to see the Marlies on a roll

Too much going on today to take my eyes off the TV and onto the marlies game (Formula1, CFL playoffs, NFL). Congrats on the shutout Scrivens. Dallas put alot of confidence in starting him a 3rd straight game, and he bounced back in a big way.

Love Fraser. He's all kinds of nasty.

Who were the standouts?

I like Fraser and would take him over Komo on our blueline in a heartbeat.

Frattin played very well. Great forechecking, scored a garbage goal, had some nice hits as well.

One thing I noticed about Frattin, seemed to play much more physical in the AHL, than he did in the NHL. Probably a confidence thing, being his first year pro, but would like to see him carry that same atitude to the Leafs. Pretty apparent he can put the puck in the net.

He's not that small (6'0, 212 lbs).

Also, he's a really good skater, with good speed, and is willing to go through a wall on every shift to give his team a boost.

Sure, he doesn't have skill that will dazzle, but he's the guy who makes room for those guys. He fetches pucks in the corners, kills penalties, blocks shots, and on some occasions, drops the mitts.

He was a fan favourite here in Windsor for all the above reasons.

Did I mention the kid is a natural born leader? We know our management loves them some character.
