When you hand someone a loaded gun, you can't be surprised when they shoot you with it.

Let's wait and see how good a job he has done drafting as most of these players are ones drafted by Marty Willamson. He has made some big trades and in the short term they look good but a big price was paid which is fine if you can draft your way back into contention.

I think Martyís record over his last four years, four games over 500, was the reason he was let go.

Joey has made so many moves that not too many players on the IceDogs are still directly linked to the drafting and development of Marty: Jones, Phillips, Hunter, Johnson, Schaefer and Dhillon.

The past 3 years without Marty, Joey and Billy have drafted, developed and traded many good players.
And youíre right their ability to do just that will need to continue being their strength.

I find the rebuild process an interesting part of supporting a junior team.

Marty drafted Thomas & Castleman plus Singer (who turned into Lodnia - great trade) and Davis (who turned out to be Maksimov another great trade) Without that draft we would not have Lodnia or Maksimov) along with those mentioned.

JB drafts include Moore. Tomasino, Bruder, DeSomine, Sopa, Uberti, Howard, Bukac, Sbaraglia. Those are the players that are the foundation of the next strong team for Niagara

For the most part, I liked Marty, but it is a bit of reach to credit him with Maksimov and Lodnia as players he brought into the IceDogs. Those two were, as you mention both great trades, 100% Joey! Neither Singer or Davis were equal value to Maksimov (which also included a 2nd and 3rd coming to Niagara) and Lodnia. However, I believe we both are agreement that JB has done a great job as the GM

I believe Bruder was an FA walk on and wasn’t drafted by the Dogs. Great work by the Dogs finding him though ....

Very pessimistic on their post season progress this season - goaltending not strong enough, still missing a large front of the net defender and too many retribution penalties - that said, I still love watching and hoping!!

I thin also, despite copious amounts of turkey over the last week.
