I know things are bleak, but we are playing a lot of youngsters (with high end talent)…I do think we squeeze into the playoffs but don’t make it out of the first round!…I’m surprised there has been no discussion on our new over anger…no insight blacksox?

OA Liam Van Loon, other than his name, I don’t remember him. Van Loon was the only player from the Bulldogs championship roster returning this season.
His statistics as an 18 year old were decent 56 games scored 33 points - mostly assists.
This season as a 20 year old, has played 2 games with Hamilton 1 goal and 1 assist; Niagara 3 games 1 goal.

On his draft day 2017 (a former MM teammate of Mason Howard)…
theScout.ca@TheScoutDotCa · Apr 8, 2017
Drafted 50th overall (3rd Round) HAM - Liam Van Loon: (LJK) - 4th LJK...fantastic pick IMO...engine is revving at uncomfortable pace...good finisher ..never cheats


Following the trade on Twitter, Bulldog fans, who have seen him play, wrote…

One of the best skaters I've watched in Hamilton since his debut. Works hard, generates chances on the PK with his speed, has a hard time finishing his chances. Best of luck to him.

Plays with an edge...And a very good player.

Vanloon good player try’s hard every game is heart soul guy plays 200 feet of the ice when he gets a chance to play. He was awesome for us in Hamilton when we had him. He will be a good addition ur team.

You will love Liam as a Hamilton fan have watched him for years even when he played jr.b Liam plays just like gally from the Habs!!! Plays like a pit bull gets under guys skin will drop the mitts finish every check gives the team energy I’ll definitely miss watching him in Hamilton


Post trade Joey Burke wrote…
Liam brings an exciting, fast-pace playing style and moves incredibly well and is very detailed. He is a guy who can play in all situations, who has a high level of smarts and skill.

As a GM Joey Burke has done a good job trading, drafting and recruiting, however, for all of us on this site, the concern is the level of coaching being provided by the entire staff.

It’s pretty clear after the last two weekends, despite complaints on social media, the decision of who coaches the team does not belong to the fans. Our decision is strictly whether to attend the game or not. I’ll continue to support the team, enjoy a night out with friends, cheer on the team – and hope that whoever the coaches are, can figure it out and win some games.

Social media can serve as a reality check. The average IceDog fan is just that, an average fan. Some remain supportive; some are angry; some spread misinformation; some are extremely knowledgeable.

Truthfully, there are probably only a few hundred fans who “truly” understand junior hockey. I recall after the 2020 trade deadline, fans (but not the ones on here ) had to be talked off a cliff when the Ice Dogs “traded away their two best players”, but that is the average fan, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that – those are the other 4800 fans that sellout the Meridian Centre and cheer passionately for the IceDogs each year.

So here we are 21-22, there are going to be games that are exciting and entertaining and some that are NOT, but the decision to go to the game is ultimate yours.

I’ll be there tonight – and every other game this year. Anyone else going tonight ?

Skipping out on tonight only because I dont go to every home game, I split my season ticket basically into 2 tickets for 17 games or so
Usually go to around 20 games plus all playoffs

GDG

Lets keep the score in a losing effort respectable tonight lol

Probably the best period we’ve had in awhile in the first (minus the goals against which IMO from first look both should be saved)

Tucker has looked shaky the last couple of games. For some reason he isn’t cleanly catching shots right now and is giving up some juicy rebounds. A couple of the GA tonight we’re of that variety. The biggest issue tonight was the D not clearing the front of the net. Hamilton always had guys standing around the net screening Tynan and being in position to bang home the rebounds. At the other end, Hamilton’s goalie had no traffic in front and no issue seeing the shots Niagara sent at the Bulldog logo.
