Ivannans OR Parros

Which one of them do you think will be sent to Manchester?

Assuming that they keep Cowan and Thornton in L.A., I think Parros is more likely to be sent to Manchester than Ivanans. With Cowan and Thornton on the roster, Parros becomes redundant. Ivanans is more in the “enforcer/intimidator” mold than Parros.

Obviously not good news for Parros, however, this would actually be a good move for the organization in that Parros is a known commodity in Manchester and would likely help the Monarchs in more areas than Ivanans.

Also, Ivanans was brought in be the current management team whereas Parros is a product of the DT team. (This may be of little to no consequence, but probably worth a mention)...

Ivanans. Parros isn't good enough at getting the occasional goal to be a grinder, but he isn't a great fighter either.

In defense of the almost indefensible George Parros:

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...php3?pid=45094

George Parros made AMAZING strides, and I am sure KB can acknowledge and address GP's improvement from year 1 (2003) to year 2 (2004) in Manchester. He went from 3 to 14 goals (and a 15th in the playoffs.) His ice time obviously increased as he got more comfortable with the league, and he contributed in ways a hockey player does, and a "goon" doesn't. Last year Parros had a couple of goals and when he was on the ice in non-goon situations exhibited some real hockey "sense" (as opposed to soomeone like Ryan Flinn, who you prayed had the sense to try to follow the direction his teammates were going, up and down the ice.)

If (and this would not happen given this crop... I said CROP... of secondary Kings forwards) Parros were to see his ice time increase as it did in Manchester from year 1 to year 2, you would MOST PROBABLY see similar increases in numbers. And, if he is sent down to Manchester, he would be counted on to be a 14 goal scorer, not a 3 goal scorer.

That all being said, they should both go down to Manchester, with Parros playing a legitimate forward's role, and Ivanans being the sideshow freak that will occasionally pummel secondary heavyweights, and more often than not get to play rock 'em sock 'em robots with other neanderthals like Mitch Fritz

(and, over the course of 82 games, both will get a sniff with the 06-07 Kings...)

There's no denying that Parros made amazing strides in terms of his game in the two years that he was in Manchester. Had Steckel not come in and made the strides he did during the lockout season, George would have had my vote for most improved hands down.

I like what Parros brings and that he's still showing signs of developing. I think Parros brings more to the table in terms of an all around game than Ivanans. However, I question how much of an opportunity Parros would have to contribute in L.A. with a healthy Thornton and Cowan available to MC. If Parros is only going to see an occasional 6-min night, they might just as well help out the Monarchs and have him in Manchester until such time that he could see steady ice time in L.A.

Of course Parros getting to Manchester requires him making it through waivers, so who knows...

I've seen what Parros can do/not do, so I'm more than willing to let Ivanans get his shot. Let him skate here for 3 months then reevaluate.

Ivanans. Parros can't fight. He grabs on, wrestles and losses his balance.

Ivanans should stay in LA from what I saw.

What was the question? Oh? you mean between the two of them? You can pretty much be assured that you'll see both of these guys in Manchester uniforms (and most probably both of them in Kings uniforms) at some point during the course of the season.

One advantage to clearing waivers now is that it will give them the ability to recall the player without risk of losing him that first time around during the year. If, however they try to send them down again, they have to go through the process again.

People aren't lined up for players like George Parros... I wouldn't think it any more than an immediate technicality... and we are not privvy to the waiver wire, so we are merely taking one poster's word for it at this point (not that I doubt it personally, but there is no officially printed list that we can refer to.)

Yeah, he's amazing. His two or three minutes of ice time has propelled this team to greatness and he ensures the team's star players enough room for them to light the lamp over and over again. In addition, since every other team is carrying at least two enforcers, he is fighting his way through the league and has left a trail of blood behind him. He is amazing. I think the team would probably be 2-5 without him.
