So once done with them on Wednesday, ship them back East asap please.
Norfolk does not need to win all 3 games. Their magic number is 5 with Hersey and Connecticut. If Hersey and Connecticut lose 2 games all Norfolk needs is 1 point.

Counter Point

I like to make my own luck and win all 3 games rather than hope that one of the other 2 falters. Not disagreeing with your numbers but saying we need to take care of our own business.

When are the playoff rosters set and how many players can a team carry in the AHL playoffs?

Will Sami and Hendry be back for the weekend?
true. haha so many many signings lately

Okay. I think I jinxed them. I'll take responsibility. It's on me.

Gibson is so calm. I don't think we're going to have to wait three to four years for him to be ready.

That's what stood out to me at the WJC. I only saw like 3 Kitchener games, though. He reminded me a little bit of a more athletically gifted Giguere. It's not a perfect comparison, but I saw similarities. Same calmness in net, same smooth play, and he's so technically sound.

I like the Price comparison just a little better. Bad night for Norfolk. Yikes.
