If he had shown up to both places, or neither, I would agree.
I'd be more worried if Niagara had a rookie evaluation camp that he didn't show up for rather than an "orientation". If he doesn't show for the rookie camp in USHL he has no chance of making the team. If he doesn't show for the tour of the Niagara Region and picture in the locker room, life still goes on. He could be just keeping both offers alive until he gets the deal he wants and commits.

Once again and as mentioned here previously, he could be playing both ends of the rope to the middle.
If only Joey had said Nothing.......

Once again, he has shown nothing to indicate that whatsoever.

Joey could learn a lesson from Rychel on how to respond when asked about players that haven't signed. Here's how Rychel answered a question in the Windsor Star about a player the Spits are trying to land that is committed to Michigan State. ďIím optimistic and things are positive, but you just donít know,Ē Rychel said. ďThereís a lot of different things involved.Ē

So far Joey has made two big statements as GM.

1) The Dogs would look to add an OA at the last years deadline, but they weren't going to spend a lot of on a player that wouldn't return the following season.... enter Sam Miletic.

2) Stephen Halliday will 100% report, he will be an IceDog.... enter Central Illinois Flying Aces.

Thank you and you are 100% correct on all counts and speaking for myself, once again, I am done with this player's future.


I am however curious as to what our first on two 4th round pick (DeSimone) might bring. Would anyone have any thoughts on him?

I know I would. When they brought in Miletic and gave up the Petes 2nd round pick this year to do so, people defended the move by saying it was okay because they got Sudburys 3rd round in return. Except, they used that 3rd round pick on Halliday. So, if he doesn't report, they went without a 2nd and 3rd round pick in one of the deepest drafts in years.

I’ve said it before I don’t have a problem with what Joey said in either situation. 1) he doesn’t feel like what he gave up was a lot and they can still go for whoever they think they need/want for the “go for it” 2) he said what he was most likely told i don’t think the team or the player saw the first overall selection coming. Everyone always want quotes from teams around every league we shouldn’t complain when we get something but don’t like it but that’s just my opinion

People defended it because it was the first pick of the round so itís basically a second round pick as for them not having a second or third this year it sucks absolutely but I think if the team is as good as they hope those guys would be 4th liners or not even playing and if they manage to be as good as they hope they might get a few guys from this draft when they trade the leftovers from whatever they ice come playoffs

We'll have to agree to disagree on this one. His job isn't to give quotes.

Right, but they gave up the Petes 2nd rounder, so by using that logic it was basically a 1st round pick.
