I think they want to show Ortmeyer what it's like to ride the bench and fetch hot dogs in the NHL and watch Messier skate (sometimes) 18-20 mins a night ....
Or with Lindros injury, they were gonna play one of Moore or Lundmark at 4th C while the other gets hosed, so they might as well send him back down for minutes in Hartforfd and bring up a guy that also maybe deserved a recall (Ortmeirer) and, of course, a vet in Healy to be wing fill-ins rather then Moore who they see as a C???
if i am not mistaken, the wolfpack play a game tomorrow night and moore could just be playing for them that one game then come back up for saturdays game against the devils, sorta like what happened this week.
but I somehow doubt it...Sather's thinking that the top three lines will play 18-20 minutes each and Moore would only get 2-3 minutes, so for once Sather's saying this makes no sense to have this kid here not playing. Unfortunately, Sather's an idiot for not rolling four lines. It hasn't bit him in the arse just yet (Mess has not yet run out of steam), but a nice road trip will put an end to that.
i say it's abot time! moore should be playing 20 min. a night. i'd prefer healy or rheaume riding pine or bird watching rather than moore or even ortmeyer who btw is the one who won those defensive and 2-way awards in college. i just hope they use him more than 10 min a game.
Can't wait to get a look at the kid. Let's hope we get the chance! :mad:
Better then the usually more applicable "Pitiful, Pitiful, Pitiful....."...I too am looking forward to seeingOrtmeyer---I like everything I hear about the guy (at 25, not really a kid) as a nuts and bolts player..
Wolverine Captain and 2 time team MVP. 2003 CCHA's best defensive forward and CCHA playoff MVP. That's a pretty stout resume'.
This guy has heart and character in spades as typified by his playing for months on a screwed up ACL or MCL that was killing him but really couldn't get worse...Berenson said he was the best captain he ever had at UM..
wow! best captain? coming from Berenson? <eye popping sound effect> at 25, i would love to see him stick and given some quality ice time. at least 10, but more like 14-15 a game. 2-8-10 in 14, +8, 2nd to Wiseman and Tyutin respectively. stats have him at RW but i think he plays all forward positions. looks like he'll play with D-lac and lundy and get little ice time.
