  1. I just don't understand what we are doing sometimes. Most teams come in with a system and a plan and then stick to it. It seems like we don't do that. We have poor puck control and passing, especially coming out of our d-zone. A lot of times we have guys that just fire the puck down the ice to no one, instead of trying to skate the puck. We need to shoot the puck! Guys are trying to move for a perfect shot instead of just shooting. Sometimes you have to be selfish and just shoot it as Guyon does.
  2. I agree, there just seems to be no one outside Dion, who is willing to play the body. Even Witzel doesn't seem to be throwing checks like he did last year. We obviously need to fix things on the defensive side. It was nice watching Bakker last weekend, he really showed leadership. Something we are lacking back there so far. I'm sure Bremner can't be happy and I don't see him stopping making moves until he gets things to his liking.
  3. Barone stopped 26 of 27 in 4-1 win for Norfolk over Atlanta tonight.
  4. Not so much a big deal, yet. Don't play for a week.
  5. I actually liked how the red jerseys looked during the preseason game with the blue helmets and gloves and pants. It was just too much red last year that I didn't like.
  6. My only thought is maybe something to do with the laser system on the zamboni. Not sure though
  7. The new sound system. They eliminated the speakers that used to be above the scoreboard. Now there are speakers above each section.
  8. I like the way the clock looked last night, much easier to see than in the past.
  9. Possible move to sign another veteran?
  10. I think Bob McGinn said on GRL that they will be able to get 1500 or so in there. My guess is it will be like Lahaye and be mostly bleachers.
  11. The Express ownership ousted John Gagnon and Pierre Paiemant when they invested in the Mississippi Sea Wolves. Gagnon was the money man and the remaining owners didn't have the deep pockets he did. Then after that, poor choices in the GM dept., which lead to unfulfilled promises made concerning nightly giveaways and such. Then mountains of unpaid bills finally lead to the demise. All in all just poor leadership and decision making.
  12. Little disappointed that there wasn't a throw back Express choice.
  13. Heard the same stuff. I know there was one occasion in which the Dawgs were short some d-men and Ftorek asked him to play some on D for some parts of a game and he refused. I know he sat a few games for that incident and then his not being well liked in the locker room lead to his being sent out.
