No arguments from me... I feel the rampant nepotism of this ownership, as well as the 'Family First' atmosphere is hurting the franchise, but honestly, I've made my peace with it. It is what it is... And it will be until they sell the team, so I'm just going to enjoy the ride.

No goalie is going to come in here and do any better, so let's enjoy watching our 3 (basically) rookie goalies develop. Really, it's like they didn't have a plan last year for having a goalie ready to take over for Dhillon. Because they did NOT give Sbrags enough starts to really evaluate him (with a good team in front of him).

I don’t think our D is smart enough/experienced enough to be able to play a more defensive game especially since they’ve been playing the same way for 34 games also think the coach that runs the D (Jody hull) is smart enough

I agree with you don’t bring in anybody ... I can’t blame the organization for not having goaltending depth at the third string level ... the odds of having to go to your third stringer potentially three games in a row are very small....

Don’t get me started on the nepotism lol....my biggest problem so far with that is the one behind the bench ... I may have a different take on things if the ‘boy genius’ upstairs doesn’t recoup enough at the trade deadline ...

I mean we knew they were going to take over eventually, I think most on here would agree that it happened sooner than it should have ...

An inexpensive veteran, to spare a young goalies confidence wouldn’t be a bad idea? Although you have to give Swiggy credit for hanging in there, despite facing 55 shots and giving up 8 goals, he made some unbelievable saves to get his first OHL win.

Within the game highlight package – not only did the OHL show all 17 goals, but they included Swiggy finest moments.

Check out these saves (and goals)…

I’d be fine giving up a 2025 15th rounder for an OA goalie

But that’s about it ...

Has it ever happened in the OHL that a team refused to come out for the 3rd period in protest of incompetent officiating? Has a team ever said ‘our players are at risk of injury as a result of officiating incompetence?

Tynan took over and was excellent.

Is that 10 points in two games for a guy who may not want to be traded?

I hope the league reviews the slew foot call. Didn't look like a slew foot to me. Howard leaned on him but his leg/foot made no contact. Also Rosie is letting in some goals sure, but we are scoring too, I find it exciting.
