Default GM Joey Burke Interview

Here is my recap of the Joey Burke’s interview on “Ice Dogs This Week” prior to the October 24, 2018 game against Peterborough Petes.

Matt and DJ did a nice job asking the questions on the minds of IceDogs’ fans.

This is what GM Joey Burke had to say about the following topics.


Injuries early in the season?
It’s been tough to accurately evaluate the team with all the injuries. However, having to face early adversity can unite a team. In talking with Hamilton GM Staios, the Bulldogs went through adversity early in their season and it was in part the reason for the success they had later in the season.


Christian Sbaraglia?
Is a highly touted goaltending prospect. We need to get him into games. He is the goalkeeper of this team’s future.


Trades?
I would like to make a trade now (like the early Lodnia deal), however, just like in past years, October is a slow month for trades. All the high-end guys you are setting your sights on - those teams are not moving them now. They say that they will move them at some point, just not prepared to do it yet.

The guys we have been targeting will become available we just need to be patient for them to become available.

Mid-level guys are available but we’re not looking for a band-aid or trying to solve other team’s problems trying to get those guys out. We are looking for the impact players who can really cause some damage and be exciting to watch.



Stephen Halliday?
Stephen would have been a first round selection had he been committed to the OHL from day 1. He will get every opportunity to play next year. Stephen obviously has other options that we have to work through but I feel with our recruiting and this building, team, region and staff - that we have created a program that players want to be a part of and Stephen will be no different.

I will continue to say that I’m very confident we’ll see Stephen in an IceDogs’ uniform next year.

According to my math ‘Very confident’ does not equal 100%

Clearly we need to have a legend to translate terms into percentages.

For sure = 100%
Very confident = 90%
Confident = 80%

I think we both have it wrong

100 per cent - fully expect to have him signed = 90%

I don't think you can put a % on anything Joey Burke says. 100% can be anything in the range of 0%-100%

A few things we might be able to take from that interview.

<> Hamilton is one of the team’s Joey Burke has been talking too recently.

<> Colton would have to be traded “to get him (Sbaraglia) into games”

<> “looking for impact players” – with Moore considered an untouchable and Schaefer recently named Assistant captain that means no defenseman but 2 forwards joining the IceDogs at some point.

<> A lot of fans still doubt this but…Stephan Halliday will be an IceDog next year.
