Your 2010-2011 Norfolk Admirals team

What will the Norfolk Admirals look like this season?

Secondly, are there enough players and depth in the organization that the Lightning could/should utilize an ECHL affiliate? (Which we do not currently have), and who would be the best fit there? Keep in mind only ELC's can be sent down to that level without their permission first.

im not an expert but i would like to see

tyrell-wright-panik - tyrell and wright cover paniks "laziness" on the backchecking. lets wright develop offensively with 2 potential top 6 prospects

hutchings-fadden-x - sniper-playmaker-x, probably durno/hall/jones/chewy ect

in the top 6.

defense

wishart-mihalik

barberio-jackson

quick-gudas

or something to that extent.

i want to see prospects in the ahl who have a legit shot at getting to the nhl. the last few norfolk rosters have been light on the prospects and more career tweener/ahlers.

goals

tyrell and fadden carry late season sucess into this season

wright develop offense at the pro level

hutchings bring his goalscoring to the next level

the defense continue making strides with wishart/mihalik leading the way.

goalies continue to develop

I've only really been looking at the youth since I started the thread, and the Lightning are in a pretty good place this season, they can still send a lot of guys back to juniors, should the need arise. Which also decreases the need for an ECHL affiliate.

Next season may be a different story.

Since Norfolk has not made the playoffs for a few years and we almost lost our affiliation with them this year would adding an ECHL help out Norfolk?

Maybe, maybe not. That's what I'm asking. It's not usually too good in the long run for an NHL team not to have one.

If everybody who's been mentioned as 'starting the season in the AHL' actually does, it'll be a bit crowded. As I said earlier, after looking at their bios a bit, I think some of them are still eligible for juniors, which makes having an ECHL affiliate not as necessary for this season.

You can bet that as soon as Orlando gets an ECHL team, I'll say it's absolutely critical.

The same roster structure logic applies in the AHL (or ECHL) as it does the NHL. Top six (scoring), bottom six (grit). More or less 3 offensive D, 3 defensive D.

Usually, the AHL and ECHL teams are affiliated with each other as well. Norfolk could hypothetically send down their extra guys to the E, and recall them as necessary. It's nice to at least have the option.

TB could maybe loan out Adam Hall or Mitch Fritz to another AHL team, should Norfolk really be dying for roster spots.

Yzerman did say a few days ago that they were looking into the possibility of having an ECHL affiliate this season. That does say something.

but that's not really the point of this thread, it's to be the AHL counterpart for '010 Lightning thread.

I would love to see that last group of five make the ads, but I worry about stunting the development of Hutchings and Killorn.

I'd count on Gudas and Zahn there, they're 20.

I think they are ready to move up to the next level after putting up great numbers last season.

On the TBL homepage he's listed as RFA but I guess he wasn't offered another contract. Can anyone confirm / deny that?

RT @Jay_Gold_: RDS: #TBLightning GM Yzerman in talks w/Montreal Juniors (Q) GM/Coach Pascal Vincent re: hiring him as Norfolk Admirals HC.

Fits the MO of Yzerman's hires so far. Young (39), successful and French. Won both the Ron Lapointe Trophy for Best Coach in the QMJHL and the Maurice Filion Trophy for Best GM.

Quote:
Pascal Vincent, head coach and general manager of the Montreal Juniors, was headhunted for the position of head coach of the Norfolk Admirals (AHL) farm club of the Tampa Bay.

According to RDS has learned, Steve Yzerman, executive director of Lightning, contacted the Montreal Juniors late last week to ask permission to talk with Pascal Vincent.

Vincent made the trip to Tampa this week and the meeting took place on Wednesday. Recall that last year, he had also met with Bob Gainey and Julien Brisebois for the position of head coach of the Hamilton Bulldogs. Brisebois now holds the position of Assistant Yzerman and DG Admirals. Vincent is obviously not the only candidate.


The Admirals coach has been vacant since the end of last season. In 2009-2010, three coaches have succeeded at the helm of the Admirals (Darren Rumble, Jim Johnson and Leigh Mendelson).

Vincent has recently signed a contract extension of two seasons with the Montreal Juniors. A career in the QMJHL, the coach of 38 years has a record of 376-342-35 in 753 games with the Screaming Eagles Cape Breton and Junior.

Vincent's also similar to the mold in that he lacks a lot of pro playing experience. Only 57 games in the ECHL.

http://www.hockeydb.com/ihdb/stats/p...y.php?pid=5583

Coincidentally, that only season of pro hockey was coached by someone named Barry Smith, but not the same Smith that was a fixture of the Red Wings coaching staff from 94-04.

If Vincent was born in 71', and retired at the end of 92', then he played his last pro game at like 20-21 years old. He did eventually make a brief return to semi-pro in 99-00, but...

The Montreal board is discussing this as well. http://hfboards.com/showthread.php?p...5#post27288305

So far, they seem to think Vincent is overrated.

Update Juraj Simek: he has been released from his tryout-contract and he will join the pre-season camp of the Admirals.

Edit: Too late

That's one of the hottest subject right now in Quebec City. A lot of people thinks the Lightning is gonna move here next year. I think that after this season, everything will be back on track in TB and they'll lose their hopes. I can't stand my friends telling me all the time how much of a great team they'll have with all those quebecers.

I think most Habs fans couldn't care less about who would be moving to QcCity but media here are really annoying with their 'kissing the ass of every player that comes from Quebec'

I know many Qc'ers are dramatic, but talk about histrionics. We have a few players from Quebec and now, we're moving there. Oh, and I have 2 cars from Germany, so I guess I'm moving there.

Yeah, Vinik is working so hard on moving them to QC that he recently bought 2 homes in Tampa Bay for $9.2M. ...or maybe he planning on moving those to QC too?

To be fair, it was one guy. It's delusional and a little weird how much of a fixation some Montreal fans have with moving this team, but it's not the majority of them.
