Due to those who don't want the connection with the FLAMES, this thread is in the A.H.L. so those CANUCK fans don't have to stomach the seeing RED. (LOL)

It's our team: GO HEAT GO

Finally, a place where we can chat. I wonder if the folks at the Heat will perhaps just link to here? I have talked to many people who cannot believe that the Heat website does not include even a basic forum..... Here's hoping the Heat can have a good year!

What kind of a season will we have?

Were going to have an excellent year. Thinking top 6 to top 4, maybe all the way.

No vid coverage

I am disappointed we cannot even purchase a feed for tonight's preseason game in Portage..............the AHL needs to look into this and ensure these are available.....at least I was able to see the highlights from last night on Moose TV (moose website).....The Heat need to do something like that, but I guess everything takes time......I know we are expecting big things this season...........lets hope that Heat Management pulls through with some surprises.................better website management would be a big thing...............

Bull Dogs

Has anyone noticed that the Heat play the Bull Dogs 6 times in 2 weeks at the end of March, start of April? The Ice Maker in abby better be on the ball during that time period, with all the frozen tear puddles from Henry.

I can't stand Henry, what a goon he was last year. That whole Playfair/JD Watt incident had him in the mix. Before and after. Finally in 3rd period they penalize him for unsportsmanlike.

Such a winer. Friends of mine are over by visitors box and were really giving him the gears last year.

Also, he won't be paired with Brad Cole! Its only looking better and better for him. Not that there was anything wrong with Cole incessantly shoveling suicide passes into Seebs skates though....

Heat win in SO

Grifffins lead HEAT most of the game and a great save by Irving kept them in. SO goals by Rheault, Chucko and Kronwall.

I will be at tonight's game. I will post about how it went. Milwaukee's guys haven't been together for very long. Other than goaltending, I don't know what to expect from them. They lost 7 of the top 10 scorers from last season. Thuresson, Mark Santorelli (not Mike who is on Florida's roster) and Blum (a D-man) are the remaining big guns. On paper, the Admirals have a better defense than last season.

Abbotsford played very well in the first period taking a 2-0 lead. Their 1-3-1 neutral zone trap stifled and confused the Admiral offense. A wide open Nemisz scored a shorthanded goal after a turnover near the Admirals offensive zone blueline. Cunning scored the second goal in traffic. The Heat sent one forward after the puck in the Admirals zone. This rushed and disrupted the first pass out of the zone.

The Admirals came up with at least two solutions to the trap for the second period. The D-men would cross the blueline just inside the faceoff dots. They would pass the puck vertically to the other blueline or diagonally across near the opposite faceoff dot. This caused most of the Heat players to be trapped ahead of the puck and facing the wrong direction. The Admirals scored four goals including a shorthanded and a 5-on-3 PP goal. The Heat tried to slow the Admirals down with bodychecks. This backfired mid-period when Kris Chucko chased Grant Lewis around the Admirals goal. Matt Keith was side stepped near the crease when Lewis turned up ice and Keith collided at high speed with Chucko for the hit of the game. Both players got up after 3 or 4 seconds and appeared to be fine. Leland Irving dropped his goalie stick on a clear up the middle of the ice. He had difficulty picking it up between the circles. Matt Halischuk swept the puck away and sent it into the now wide open net. Keetley replaced Irving for the rest of the period.

Irving came back in for the third period. The trap was abandoned because of four minors called on the Heat in the third period. Some of the Heat players were a little frustrated by the turn of events. Klasen and Halischuk each scored their second goals of the game to make it 6-2. Irving played well most of the time. His D-men didn't cover the Admirals forwards or swept rebounds to the corners as often as they should have. I am sure that the coaches will fix this for the next game. As long as the trap worked, the Heat looked awesome. When it broke down, the Heat were running around and looked a little confused on defense. They need to find an alternative and they will do quite well this season.

Thanks for the review. 15 of the players are from last year. The newbies will fit in real quick.

Staffan Kronwall has left the Heat to return to his home club of Djurgardens IF in Stockholm Sweden. Wanted to play in Sweden to be closer to his family. All the best to him.
