... Because none of them are 6'6 monsters, therefore they can't play together.

Actually it's more to do with their severe concussion issues. Good try though.

I fail to see how putting them on separate lines, would reduce the likely hood of a concussion?

Well, two are soft as butter (Duchene and Mueller) and the other is the size of a smurf (even though he plays like a pinball).

I guess you consider O'rielly soft as well. Seeing how he has 4 hits more than DUchene while playing more games.

Really? Dutchy's soft as butter? This goes beyond simple exaggeration.

Just a random question for anyone who can answer it, but who has better hockey sense, Elliott or Barrie?

Guess we must all have differing opinions on soft. I think of O'Reilly as a tough to play against player although not necessarily a hard player. He certainly works hard and can play the grinding game.

Duchene is soft in my head because while he doesn't avoid contact like Mueller, he doesn't press hard enough in the defensive zone.

There's something wrong with that sentence.

In all seriousness though, just because he's inattentive (and at times downright lazy) in the defensive zone doesn't make him soft. He regularly battles for pucks down low in the attacking zone and rarely shies away from contact. Mueller is most definitely soft, but if Duchene is, so is a very sizeable portion of the league.

But yes, it's an opinion and you're entitled to it. I just think your definition of soft is a bit too broad.

I have a question about Lake Erie coach, David Quinn.

What kind of system does he run? Is it offensively favorable or is it more of a prevent GA type system?

I know he is a great motivator, is that true?

Thanks for any information you guys can give me.

From what I understand it's defensive-based, but I don't believe it's a trap by any means. Tyson Barrie, a defenseman, leads the team with 25 points. Offensive #s are exactly great, but Lake Erie also had to deal with a ton of injuries to key offensive players to start the season.

As far as motivation, he apparently still got the team to the playoffs after the parent club picked his roster clean, so I'd say yes, he's a motivator.

But if you're wondering, no, you can't have him.

Of course he can't have him...he's OUR next Head Coach!

In terms of motivation, he was BU's best recruiter. He brought in some of the biggest names to BU, particularly when he brought in the players for the 2009 NCAA championship team.

I don't know about the entire system, but the defense (which was his assignment at BU) was always a zone/partial man-based system which always allowed goaltenders to be well protected. We've been exposed a bit since Quinn has left.

From what I understand (I sure do use that phrase a lot) Barrie is the better all-around defenseman...so I'd venture a guess that he's the more "hockey sensible" player. However, nothing indicates to me that SE is lacking in that department. He's making some bad decisions with the puck, yes, but it's not like he's Jan Hejda getting caught out of position seemingly every game. To me it's just a rookie kid trying to do too much and still trying to adjust to the speed of the NHL.

Just read Monsters are 11-11-1-1. Nice.
Better late than never.

I think Barrie can grab a permanent spot with the main team already, excited to see how he adapts.

Interesting...Jessiman released.

http://theahl.com/stats/transactions...&f_team_id=373

Was this his 2nd PTO? If so I guess I can see why he was not retained. Still, seems like the Monsters could use all the firepower they can get.

He was signed by Abbottford to a standard AHL contract.

I guess it has something to do with this:

Quote:
This is a Professional Try Out and is found only in the AHL. This type of contract is limited to 25 games and a player can only be signed to a PTO twice per season. After the second time, the player is either signed to a Standard Player Contract, is a free agent, or if the player is signed to an ECHL team, he is then returned to that team.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hockey_contracts

Since he played roughly 44 games, I'm assuming he was signed to 2 consecutive PTO's, after which point he must be released or signed. I guess since the Avs are close to 50 contracts, they opted not to use a space on him. But yeah, I agree...kinda weird move. I can't help but think that Jessiman realized the Avs were never going to give him a shot in the NHL, so he might have asked for the release.
