4) The USHL might be more competitive this year as the OHL will have two years of rookies that haven?t played a game coming in. At the same time having two years of players graduating. And a bunch of 18 and 19 year olds that didn?t play last year.

If that doesn?t make sense to you, you may have your head in the sand.

Instead of pouting about what you perceive as a ?negative? post, maybe you can add something to the conversation that actually has some merit.

Thanks for the support Lou. Have a nacho on me!


I doubt he reports to Niagara for many of the reasons you indicated .


If he is AHL eligible and could actually be paid more than $100 a week to ply hockey in a country that seems to be oblivious to the pandemic why would he choose to come here and play in the OHL which should be watered down this year in a province governed by a premier who changes his mind like I change underwear ?

If I were his agent I would he steering him south.


I do not view myself as pessimistic ? I view myself as a realist who does not drink the Kool aid from the Burke kool aid stand.

That is all.

So just to clarify for IceDogs’ fans, here are ONLY the facts…

<>Gushchin is not going back to the USHL.

<>The decision on when he begins getting paid the first year of his ELC is neither Danil’s or his agents’ - that belongs solely to the SJS organization.

<> The decision AHL or OHL has not been made yet, it will be known in early October (after completion of the rookie tournament and AHL camp).

<>If he remains in the AHL, the IceDogs will then sign Alex Graham (who has arrived in Niagara).
<>03 Alex Graham (6.02) would be eligible to play 3 seasons. A UK scouting report on Graham: skates fast; likes to shoot the puck and can score in several ways.

Click on the link below to hear Gushchin himself say, “SJS will tell me what to do - stay here with the barracudas (AHL) or go to the OHL.”

But seriously, a couple people don’t except him back for good reason and you take that as negative? Being realistic doesn’t make it negative.

Believe or not, a lot of people come here for differing opinions, information, rumours and even some facts. Some don’t just come to sing kumbaya.

FWIW, I don’t think he comes either. In a perfect world he comes, plays well lights it up, gets dealt at the deadline to bring in assets that can be used when the Dogs go for it. But, I think it makes more sense for development to play in the AHL.

I’ve seen Gushchin play quite a bit – and as I’ve stated before if he’s NOT in the AHL, it was a decision based on something other than talent! Contract? Number of SJS signed AHL players? Available Player Options? Numbers game in SJS (AHL)?

Then when I read this in the St Catharines Standard (Bernd Franke Sept. 1) it got me wondering perhaps there is something we don’t know???
“There was some question heading into training camp that San Jose would be keeping him in its farm system for development but the team (has) permitted him to return to a fourth season at the junior level.”

So based on solely on talent, in your opinion he should be playoff in the AHL correct?

Are you reading this maddog? How can Blacksox be so negative?

Hey, hey don’t put words in my mouth. Read my post carefully
What I am saying is there are reports of Gushchin possibly ending up in the OHL - and that the decision on where SJS decides to place him may not be entirely based on talent. Other factors appear to be in play. I don’t know exactly what they are but no one including Gushchin or SJS have ruled out the OHL yet.

So until we hear official word, there seems to be 50/50 chance. IceDogs, SJS and Gushchin are saying maybe and IceDogs fans are saying NO way.

For the record…. “Doubt” and “I don’t think” are a far cry from anyone saying “No way”. I’m not sure anyone has said “no way”. It’s an even further cry from being negative. No matter how much poor maddog wants it to be. And that was the point of the post. That even Blacksox the eternal optimist believes that based on talent alone, Gushchin should be in the AHL and not in Niagara. (Without putting words in your mouth of course)

For the record, my post were neither positive or negative. I was simply listing the facts surrounding Gushchin’s situation and fans can draw their own conclusions based on the facts.
