I have to say AV is one smart cookie setting up a different scenario for the kids to figure out. . Not all games are speed. Tight checking games require patience, d first and exploiting the other teams mistakes and the only one who really showed the adaptability to adjust his game and become a scoring threat was The Duke as he broke out with several prime opportunities in the 3rd. Big nod to Hayes as well leading the kid fore check parade. Got to say proud of all these kids and the way they handled the tough pressure of a tight checking team along with the ape man tactics we've all grown to love from the city of brotherly mug. Good job boys!

I have to say this is logical and I'm sure you're right. We may see McI up with the big boys later in the season.

I'm totally with you on that one. He hasn't been as good as Hunwick or even Allen but he's settled in and looked competent in his 2nd game and he brings something the others can't, size and snarl which we need.

Agree with you on MSL and Nash. IDK but being a new season and Miller looking more mature he AV may be willing to try Milker in the top 6 with Kreid/MSL but then again he might go with the experience of Moore in top 6. A lot hinges in the variable of Duclair. If he's sent down then he can use Zucc on the left with Brass and Nash.

I would favor a swap if Miller/ Moore but I like it.

I'd love to see the Brash Duke line as our 2nd but more likely Zucc gets the left side with Nash in the right. Then Duke in the 3rd line but where do you put Hags? It's a nice problem to have and I suppose you could use Zucc on the right side 3rd line and Hags on the 2nd with Duke in the 3rd or reverse that. Too confusing but I got to say Duke makes the 1st cut and if he continues to bring it and shows signs of learning the rest if the week he will be hard to send down and this is a smart guy and a quick study. You hear how clear and articulate he is in interviews.

I think they'll get something done with Staal in time but he'll have to show a little more on the ice first . Those injuries were a huge setback

He's been infected by his ape-man team mates Speaking of which the best player for us was Del Zotto and he set up our first goal

The kids were set up for a different kind of game as in the NHL you have to deal with tight checking forecheck type games and I have to say the only one who really figured it out offensively was Duclair in the 3rd but I have to say in general the kids did very well and adapted nicely, but the Duke is not even freakin human. Love that guy. Haggerty was quiet but played a solid game. Hayes played his best game IMO, nothing fancy but was key to our forecheck but had a few errors. Lindberg was quiet, nothing fancy but steady. Good 4th line candidate. Fast was OK, no glaring errors. Hvilic Or how ever you spell that name was very good, but not major league. Same with Bourque. Not impressed with Kristo. I liked Stepniac's game. Quite visible out there. On D Brodie had good moments and a couple dumb plays. Allen was better - I can't even remember the other rookie Dmen tonight but that 7 & 8 spot are up for grabs. I kind of hope McI stays as he was steady and brings size and grit but kind of doubtful.

I liked Hayes tonight I thought it was his best yet. Very key to a successful forecheck. In 82 games it's not going to be all speed. Not all the fans seem to get that. Haggerty was quiet tonight. I thought last night he benefitted from Duclair but he's a good player and will be up doon

Given the game situation and how these kids responded I give them a lot more credit than that. We're looking at positioning, defensive responsibility and stuff like that as they were put in a situation that was designed to test them in a different way. I'm proud of all these boys.

Kristo's not showing enough, he's at a point in his career that they should trade him to somewhere he can play cause he ain't cracking this line up. Kostka looked better last game but I don't think he's bad

The other day they listed The Duke at 177. He put on 13 lbs. In less than a week Joe? Pretty impressive!

Yeah but still would rather see him play against men. He's already good enough to stay and I hope they keep looking at him but given the situation in the team, which is awesome BTW I would think he'll wind up back in the juniors
