Wow. Nothing like getting burned by a bunch of kids.

This place has been a black hole for goaltenders for the last 6 years and I don't think that's going to be different this year.

Apparently this game is "extremely important" to all the kids on our team now and they have to do something now, careers are hanging in the balance

Also that whole "wishart and tokarski and etc etc belong on this team!" talk can go ahead and stop here... kids are coming along nicely but they're not ready.

I agree but at least give them some preseason games. This is why I am wondering why Tokarski did not get the game tonight. Unless he plays Saturday?

Because he doesn't need to. He wasn't the plan in Tampa this year, not now, not ever.

He was going to be, and will be in Norfolk trying to build a winner there. In time, he'll be in Tampa. They're more worried about Ellis getting enough time to get into regular form.

EDIT: Well not ever, but not this year.

I kind of want to punch Ellis in the face right now. I know it's a poor team on the ice but 3 of 5 goals should have been stopped. He looks not good. No bueno.

Better he drop a stinker now then in a game where it counts. He's good enough that he will bounce back, I'm sure.

Seriously, preseason. I'm glad we lost this game. We need to not get a big head about this ****. We've got a long way to go.

anyone know if Saturdays game is Televised or just Radio? Sucks I cannot go but at least if there is a stream it will somewhat make up for it.

Great shift by Wright and Ashton cycling the puck and then going to the net.

It would have been nice to see what TIC has. He kinda got screwed to show what he has. He has the most potential in all of our goalies, and now he gets to sit down and watch us take a 5 to 2 ass whooping for it. It wouldn't have hurt to see what he could have done.

Just made my first venture onto the Lightning board to say how impressive these two were on that shift. Really nice move to the net by Wright and great hands and compete level by Ashton to finish it off.

Yes and no. We know what we're after this year, and that Smith and Ellis platooning this ****. We all know it. It wasn't a secret. Let those guys get work and see what we've got.

Let Dustin go back to Norfolk and get to work.

Ashton is bizeast. His last goal and this one tonight were both NHL goals. Kids don't score goals like that, men do. He's going to be a good one.

Only thing about this game that worries me is Ellis. Can't really expect much considering who we dressed, 90% of the offensive talent was watching from the press box. He needs to shake this off, we can't have have another season with sub-par goaltending.

We looked ok in the 1st, but with all the pps and pks we slowed down in the 2nd. Brett Connolly should be sent back to P.G. He made a few good moves but it showed that he's just not NHL ready yet. He got muscled off the puck a lot and it looked like he wasn't quick enough in some situations where he would normally move around slower players with the time and space he's use to in juniors. Wright had a great game defensively and was very tenacious. He looks stronger and confident out there. Purcell I thought was the best player offensively and crashed the net hard. He wasn't floating but he didn't go 100% while Tyrell was urgent and hustled up and down the ice every shift start to end. Jones and Perrson were solid but didn't do anything to really stand out. Harju needs to get more involved. Ashton was a little inconsistent. Sometimes he had quiet shift with nothing happening, and others he looked good.

Jones and Clark just don't seem very smart. Mihalik and Vernace look ready to be sent to Norfolk. Gudas struggled but got better as the game went on and showed real promise. Ellis did not look sharp mentally tonight. Hopefully just a bad night he can shake off.
