I don't think they will make that mistake again. There will be different guys up and down the rest of the year, anyone who is can play in the playoffs for Bingo will be there.

Didn't get to see the game, but its nice to hear he had a decent showing. I expect him to be a 4th line banger but maybe there's more there?

He can chip in offensivly. When you have a player with that kind of character and will, the sky may not be the limit but he may provide something people never expected. Could be a Penner at best IMO based on his development. Works hard enough to get there.

I think they are sill disappointed in Condra taking a leak on that cop car

Better than Murray's even though everyone would praise that. I see your point though.

Greening wasn't as impressive as Butler, in my opinion. The one thing I noticed is that he looks huge. He could really do some damage if he threw his weight around more.

Butler is an AHL all star and pure snipper. I don't think anyone was expecting Greening to look like anyting other than a 4th line grinder. Butler has looked pretty good to great every time he's been up.

Just saying.

Hey Ski, how's it going bud?

Been meaning to ask, how is Gryba's development? Any progress?

Any players in Bingo that have showed the most improvement?

Sup Doc..Gryba is showing improvement, but don't expect him to crack the bigs for a while, he's still learning but I wish he would use that monster frame of his a little more..

Everyone seems to be calling for Condra lately, he's playing w/ more confidence and scoring but he's gotta add some bulk, like Butler needs to as well..Wick has some skillz but I dunno about him, he seems just so-so..

Look for Dziurzynski after another season in the A, I think his playing ability is only going to get better..and of course Greening who'll make Ottawa after camp next season..

Awesome. Thanks for the updates as usual.

Yeah, was looking forward to Gryba destroying players (guy's huge) but it seems as though he's not doing as well as we had hoped.

Dziurzynski is another big kid, but I'm not sure what type of game he plays.

I'm willing to be patient with Greening, because he's the type of player we need right now. Just hope his game translates well to the Big League. Gotta use his size too!

How about Weircioch? Has he been doing well? Did he finally add some size to that 6'4 frame lol?

I didn't mean all at once guys. I meant it will be nice to see a couple of those guys for a few games at a time and hopefully they'll get more than 8 minutes of ice time because the games don't matter much.

But they might be in a situation where they need bodies in Ottawa - they are carrying 13 forwards. Ruutu will most likely go, maybe Kovalev, maybe another forward or two, plus injuries.

Weircioch is not so good, slow out of position, tries to be offensive but he's gotta hang back more..I dunno, imo he's not going to make it..

Dziurzynski got some speed, big kid good shot, really showing some improvement and getting chances, has that knack around the net..

It wasn't a "chance", it was a cup of tea. "Colin, you've played well in the A, you are going to contend for a position next year we expect. Come make your debut, you've earned it".

Who cares? Bingo exists for the Ottawa Senators to develop players. I think having our prospects down there winning and going to the POs is the right thing to do, but regardless of what happens, I couldnt care less about the fans down there whining. If you dont want to see players leave to the NHL, dont be a fan of a team in a development league.

Yeah I think these games are mostly for recognition or a step. There's no sense in throwing Greening into significant checking minutes when he's still got a ways to go before he does that on a nightly basis. I don't think anyone evaluating him last night would have been displeased by his effort...first games are tough and nerve wracking...but I think it's good to feel them in slowly like this.

Smith has gone through it....he's been impressive lately IMO. I think Smith could score 15-20 goals annually. More offensively gifted then Foligno imo.

I care..and you're right, I could care less about some Ottawa fans whining about losing this season..if you don't have the horses, then what should you expect the outcome to be..
