Just got back from the game. Had a bit of a 911 situation in the parking garage. I think the most frustrating part of that game was when the Dogs scored, and put it to 4-3. At that point, I said to the person beside me ‘wouldn’t it be nice if (the Dogs) could get a point out of this.. The very next shift, bing-bang, in the net, 5-3. Toast.
It was just this sense of ‘yep, this is what the typical IceDogs game is going to be like this season..’
This is a rebuild, folks. This is the way it’s going to be for prob the next two seasons. And this is WITH Akil Thomas and Phil Tomasino. What, do you think the Dogs will get better once those two are traded? This is also assuming Burke and Co. have enough sense in their head to trade the two of them.
Here we are, talking about ‘the team will be this and that once the trades are made’. I have heard nothing, no indication that the Dogs even have any intention of trading either of them. Now, I think it obviously needs to happen, as the Dogs’ cupboard is bare and bone-dry. But do the Burkes see things the same way? Or would they say ‘You know what we need? We need to spend even more draft picks to get this team into the playoffs!’ And then it’ll be Pietrangelo 2.0 . Thomas and Tomasino go to NHL camps next September and don’t return.
