A few year's back (the first go for it time 2014, I believe), my wife and I were in Sarnia and the team showing was so bad that we left at middle point of the second period. Out of curiosity, we tried to watch more of the game on the TV in our room, but, that did not last long either.
Last night, I was ready to leave after the second period but, I did not mentioned leaving. On the way home, I mentioned this thought and if I had brought it up, we would have left a game for the second time.

I have my answer - not based solely (but in part) to Sbrags performance last night, but rather using a more analytical approach to this decision.

In a few years, the IceDogs core players will be 02s and 03s, so Tynan fits the time frame of this rebuild (Sprags 01) – and this is Tynan’s draft year. Allowing Tynan to play the majority of games, in terms of player and team development, makes more sense. It would be a huge accomplishment for the IceDogs to get Tynan drafted this year –and build around hopefully an elite NHL calibre goalie.

I agree with you on the above but, unfortunately, it is not going to happen anytime soon as it is not the Ice Dogs family way.
Too loyal and the Burkes promised the parents that they would take care of them just like they were their own kids.

These observations are based on the last 3 home games.

• With an 18 minute intermission only a few minutes away – there is no reason why a team can’t run their top 2 lines for the last 3 shifts at the end each period.

• The advantage of home ice (last change) is not used consistently enough. On several occasions, our 4th line is matched up against the opponent’s first line, after a stoppage in play. This was really noticeable against Saginaw. Our 4th line was up against 3 NHL drafted players on more than one instance. Seems unnecessarily unfair to those three 16 year olds.

• After a goal is scored, whether ahead or behind, teams should try to build or regain momentum. So, while opposing team have been putting on one of their top two lines, the IceDogs have been countered with the 4th line. Not all the time – but I don’t think it should ever be done, especially this year.


Last night, a struggling IceDogs team managed to close to within 4-2 and after a lengthy delay to review the goal, the 4th line was the next shift. Was there a good reason why the next shift could not be one of our top lines?

*From the time the goal was scored and the puck was dropped, 5 minutes had elapsed*

Last night's game was another prime example of a typical minor hockey house league coaching at its best.

I wouldn’t be surprised if the Burke boys promised #37 the net in an effort to recruit him away from Penn State. Tynan appears to be the better goalie (granted it’s a small sample size) But, did they paint themselves into a corner?

I will personally buy him a ticket to get to Penn State.

How can you develop a young team into a winning team if you've got the same inexperienced, losing coach. Mr. Burke Sr. is simply inviting STH and fans in general to express disinterest in the Ice Dogs this year. Great business concept! Sir, you need to fire the coach and bring in staff with the ability to train these young players. Period.

Gee the way Sbaraglia played last night, you would think he was a rookie. Oh wait he is a rookie. Welcome to a rebuild season.
