Funny! Last season in one of my post Ads posts vs. (then Omaha) Flames I said that you know the world is coming to an end when Eric Godard scores a hat trick! Well, at your level him scoring a goal get equally the same reaction!
around the league:
Simon Gamache with an assist tonight for Toronto
Haydar with a goal and an assist tonight for the Thrashers
I know a lot of people say these two are AHL stars/NHL not ever ready for prime time, but man I used to love watching them play together on the line here in MKE! I am so glad to see Gamache get a shot. He'll stick this time. Darren? Not so sure. I'll keep my fingers crossed for the guy -
yeah, it sounded like he has been victimized regularly during the last three games, yet Trotz comes out and says:
"Ville Koistinen is playing extremely well,'' Coach Barry Trotz said. "He's been one of our best defensemen the last couple games.''
He was more critical of other defensemen, noting Klein might see action at the expense of someone besides Koistinen."
Oh my God, you gotta be kidding! Wow! as far as last night is concerned, once he is beaten there is no way he is going to chase down that player and prevent any damage. He is way to slow.
It seemed that the penalty that he took was because he was sick of getting players behind him and wasn't about to let it happen again,... so he tackled him.
Something else I noticed about the game in general is that it seemed that we were always 2 strides ahead of the puck and the opposition was right there waiting for it. Not only on passes either. On misplays of the puck when it was just sitting there on the ice, we just seemed to skate right over it.
All I know is that I came up for the game all the way from Augusta, GA and I was really hoping for a better result.
