I feel so sorry for our Goalies.
Shots are inevitable if your goal is to 'clear the puck'. Giving it right back so they can attack in waves is not the answer. They need to get the puck and hold onto it and make plays. The game is all about keeping possession. To have any hope of competing they need to stop throwing it away and make clean zone exits and entries. The fact that they struggle so much to do this is either there is not enough talent or it's not being demanded of them. Probably both TBH.

Gave up my tickets this year. I had a credit for four games. Got tickets for London, Sudbury, Kitchener and SSM. I went to the London game. Gave the tickets away for the Sudbury and Kitchener game. Iíll decide on the SSM game closer to the actual game night. I can tell you this though, I wonít give this clown a penny. I will not buy a single ticket to this gong show.

He has to either hire a real GM and not meddle. It will be very obvious if he hires a yes man and pulls the strings or if itís a real experienced GM allowed to do his job. I donít mind the coach. Iíd like to see what he can do with some actual talent. The jury is out on the scouting staff. Kids that are drafted where theyíre supposed to be drafted have to report. Iím not talking about them drafting a kid 1st overall that is ranked 6th or 7th because heíll report. If they have the first pick overall itís Roobroeck. If they donít draft him itís because he wonít report. Long story short, before I spend a red cent on this team he has to get his collective **** together. I wonít hold my breath.

After the Burkes kids and now this guy, Iím guessing I wonít be a season ticket holder again anytime soonÖ. If ever.

I would bet dollars to doughnuts he ends up in the Shwa either via draft or trade . . .

Gens will have to pay for the brothers to play together. Might be easier for the other team to buy the older sibling.

I think what bothers me is not only how bad DeDobbelaer has been as a GM but also how bad he is as an owner. There is lots of talk at the arena about how cheap he is with the players and all the cost cutting measures he has done. At times it seems like a hopeless situation.

I do think the team is improving a little and next season they may be able to fight for a playoff spot, which is sad considering that next season is supposed to be the season we go for it. Instead I will hope for 8th place.
