I loved Scott Fletcher another type of player the Icedogs need.

Did any of you see the trade the Detroit Red Wings yesterday? One day after star forward Dylan Larkin gets in what might be his first ever fight, Detroit goes out, acquires and calls up Dylan McIlrath. Why? To be used as a blunt instrument to prevent opposition forwards from getting in the face of Larkin.
Why mention this? Because this is exactly what the Dogs need to do. Bring in their own blunt instrument to make time and space for the skilled kids to make them ‘feel comfortable’.

if we go back a couple or so years, that is precisely what GM Joey did. He wanted some grit to protect the other players and then, unfortunately, coach Billy could not control the dude. His name was Adrian Carbonara.
He has been gun-shy to do this ever since.

Carbonara was just a bad pickup. They way overpaid and he certainly wasn't what they needed IMO. With a softer team like the Dogs were then and are now they need the strong silent type that will calm things down not stir them up. Fletcher was like that. He could skate over to the other teams bench and say settle down boys or I'm going to get mad. He wasn't running around starting **** but was more than happy to take care of business.

Dead-on. Scott Fletcher 2.0 is exactly what the Dogs need. Stefan Legein wouldn’t work either. He was a guy who could play a really effective game at times, could and did fight on occasion, but just as often he would negate power plays by either yapping or turning a power play into a 4-on-4.
But anyhow, let’s hope this new Dog is a good fit

Old school - new school, you have to have surgical precision. You can't fight everyone and you can't be looking to "start it" . Carbonara and Lemmon before him were the wrong fit.

I used to be such an opponent of fighting in hockey. Thinking fighting was such a waste of time. Thinking ‘if two teams each have their meatbags, just have them fight each other and get it done with’. It was around that time that I saw Jarome Iginla doing quite a bit of the fighting for the Calgary Flames. Now, while Iginla was neither a stranger to fighting nor a reluctant fighter, it wasn’t long before I realized having your highest-paid and highest skilled scorer potentially damaging his $7 million hands punching a helmet is a potential disaster for the Flames. So the Flames went out and acquired Krzysztof Oliwa and Chris Simon. Then Iginla fighting wasn’t as much of a problem anymore. Not coincidentally, Iginla has Simon installed on his opposite wing, Iginla scores 50 goals.
Buying time and space. That’s what I want the IceDogs to do for Thomas, Tomo, Uberti and DiSimone. Having the Dogs’ scorers not have to worry about anything but scoring. For if anyone gets in Thomas or Tomasino’s face, another Dog has a ‘chat’ with the pest. And suddenly the pest isn’t a problem anymore.

There used to be a saying around hockey that we would hear all the time.
"If you cannot beat them in the parking lot, you won't beat them on the ice"

To a lesser extent, I believe the saying still applies today. We hear it all the time about the Maple Leafs in that they are too easy to play against or that they need be harder to play against

Same for the Ice Dogs, but they need someone a whole bunch better and smarter than the last tough guy they brought in.

Don’t even bother

Thomas could be gone for good if he makes the World Junior team ... and then traded when that tournament ends.

Realistically only a handful of games left to watch Thomas as an Icedog.

His critics love to bash on him, sure his game isn’t perfect. But the Icedogs made a successful selection with that pick ... at least he didn’t turn out to be Brook Hiddink lol
