Binghamton shuts out Albany 4-0. Tyler Weiman didn't start, but ended up playing the last 2:33 of the game after rookie Justin Peters left the crease to fight Binghamton's goaltender.

Evil Moderators!



(it feels good to be able to say that ).


By the way looks like Macias is having himself a nice year (at least offensively). Good news.

Looking forward to Nigel Williams making his debut tonight as well!

Would be great if someone who sees any Saginaw games could gives us an idea of how Williams overall game looks. I'm sure most of us are curious how his development will go.

I imagine it will be a shaky start for him, considering his lack of playing time at Wisconsin.

I don't really like this move. I'd like to see Boychuk make the Avs as a defenseman more than a forward. I don't see him getting a start over guys like McCormick or Rycroft and Laaksonen if the later two are here next year, which I would like to see.

I think it's more towards building versatility, much like how we used Boughner at forward and D last year.

Yea, but Boughner was a vet, and Boychuk is still developing his game. This could really hurt that development. I don't really see him being more than a 4th line engergy guy at forward, so why make the change now for such a small role. Unless he has no chance at making the NHL as a defenseman, which I was under the impression that he looked much better in camp there, I don't think this is a good move for him.

I was never really a fan of this type of move anyway. It always seems to end up putting the team in a position where they will play him at forward for a while, and then a defenseman goes down, and they remember that he can play D too so they stick him there for a while, and he just bounces back and forth and never really progresses but just ends up playing mediocre in both positions. Messier was able to develop into a good checking forward after some consistent time in that position, but I get the feeling he wouldn't have been able to stick with a team in this new NHL.

Thats what is happening to Brent Burns in MIN. Once he is a RW, once a D and he isnt really showing sign of getting better.

Denis Parshin

24 games 7 goals + 10 assists = 17 points 10 pim and +4

And his career-high numbers before this season:

37 games 2 goals + 8 assists = 10 points 22 pim +10

He seems to have slowed down a bit in terms of offensive production, I remember he was at around PPG for a little while there.

BTW, any of you know how many games are in a RSL season? I really wish I got a chance to watch Parshin play, I've heard some good things about him, especially this season, would like to get to see him play for once though.

It's 60 games per, he's halfway through. Unfortunately I don't have any clips of Parshin and couldn't find one.

I also think that the Avs should keep him at D, but I don't get to watch him enough to have an accurate account towards his progression. From training camp I thought he wasn't terrible, but hey...I'm not the Avs

I'm hoping that they are just getting him some forward time to try to get his offensive game going, as well as get him to better his skating. With Boychuk our defense is thin, without Boychuk, it's down to basically 2 guys.

Albany beats Philadelphia 4-1. Cumiskey played another great game--he had a goal and an assist, he was very sharp defensively and was deservedly named first star of the game. Boychuk had the only assist on the game-winning goal.
