Believe it or not, Plante was an AHL All Star last year. He will never have an NHL career but he should be able to carve out a career in the AHL. He has had a rough start to the year though.

Missing Marincin and Davidson does hurt the team quite a bit.

Marincin is our 2nd best D on the farm and by a sizable margin. Davidson had his best game of the season prior to being diagnosed with cancer. Besides Schultz and Marincin our best D prospects aren't in the AHL at the moment (Klefbom, Musil, and Gernat). The former two in particular would be big additions to our farm team. Plante and Ringwald in particular have been horrid for our club and Fedun has taken a significant step back after his injury last season, our defense has been our sore spot so far this season.

You guys had a lot of fight and it paid off. No excuses from our side, you guys got the job done and we didn't.

Schultz now sits at 6-9-15 and a +6 after 9 games. I don't think that anyone would've predicted this kind of a start to his AHL career. He currently has a 3 point lead in AHL scoring, that is insane for a defenseman.

It indeed is. I'd like to have seen Granlund challenging his point totals now that they were playing against each other but his injury came at a bad time. Grannys PPG before the injury was 1,5 and he was getting better every game.

Marcus Folgino - Looked great when he wanted to even try the slightest. Made the dogs look bad whenever he wanted to. Can't really improve much in the AHL. Needs the NHL.

Knapp - Played well for the whole game except for 6 minutes. Though that was a team collapse imo and the dogs got lucky with a pp goal, cause their pp sucks ass.

Should have posted last night, but that's all I remember, or feel that's key.

I personally was thinkin something like point/game. Barons way too stacked that's why, too many elite forwards to be trailed he profits from that more than you think, just saying.

Yeh, I kinda prefer his original nickname Mikke but he's already known as Granny by his teammates FBJ is a good nickname too.

RNH and Eberle have 10 and 11 points respectively, Schultz has 15.

Watching the griffs and aeros right now. I gotta say Coyle is more physical then I remember and is stirring up some ****. However this might be out of frustration because he hasnt really done much offensively at all.

Mrazek has been lights out. When do we start considering Mrazek one of the more elite goalie prospects out there? Hes killed it at every level hes played

He's definitely a rising prospect but let's see if he can stay consistent. I don't think he's going to turn out like McCollum, but McCollum had a good start as well.

Patrick Holland, Steve Quailer, Morgan Ellis and Nathan Beaulieu are my favourites out of Hamilton so far. I mean, not necessarily the players that have played the best, but in my eyes those are the guys that have showed the most in terms of ''long term NHL potential''

Beaulieu is just an offensive weapon... Dennis Wideman-like. Yes he is a wreck defensively.

Holland is just so solid... for a 7th rounder he's just absurb. I liked his balance, his vision, his hands, his skating abilities.

Quailer is very raw but he's my kind of project... has got all the tools. He's big but is a very good technical skater. Good speed, acceleration. Seems to have very solid hands as well. A player that is very involved in all 3-zones.

As for Ellis hasn't played much but he's been very solid, always in the right position, very strong on his skates, hitting hard, making the safe plays, etc. Really liking his game.

I always liked Holland. Was sad to see him leave the organization in that trade. I am not sure what level of success he will end up having in the NHL, but I am betting he will become an NHL player.

Schultz doesn't even play with them during even strength, he plays with the checking line. He only plays with them on the PP and only a handful of his points are PP points.

McCollum was good in juniors. He was never particularly good in the AHL. Mrazek has a .96x save percentage and has given up 1 goal in each of his first two games. Sure its early but his save percentage was about the same in the ECHL and he was pretty dominant in the OHL *(believe he was in ohl to lazy to look it up). Kid should remain relatively consistent baring injuries.

Granted the Astros are not a great offensive team but he is a clear upgrade over McCollum.

In other news, Springfield, with that win over the Whale (10-2; goals by Erixon, JAM, Drazenovic, Johansen, Kubalik, Johansen again, Joudrey, Atkinson, Chaput, and Drazenovic again), is presently in sole possession of first place in the AHL East with 9 games played.

That's... a tad unexpected.

He is still a bit bitter about Erixon not wanting to play in Calgary.
