[thepuck 2019-01-21] Avs 0 @ Habs 3 EN

Press are still yacking about MacKinnon's temper tantrum. Ex-Hab Mark Barberio is in the lineup for the Avs.

Below is the lineup with my rating for each player in the game. This is not a direct reflection of their skill level but how they impacted this specific game. It's rated from 1-10. It does not take into account intangibles like how they lead off the ice.

A hodgepodge of review, synopsis and related thoughts. By no means one of those things and yet not all. Just what I felt like writing. :)

These magazines have nice cardstock covers and the front cover looks nice. It's all black & white. Some of the graphics kind of bleed into a blur like the Hekaforge logo.

[EHM 2018-10-22] Farms are Rolling

NHL

Tier1

Scouts had some comments for Kersus today. Jets' LD Julien Melchori was considered fairly good in the vein of Ben Chiarot. Canucks' RW Alexandre Grenier and Capitals' Tyler Lewington were also considered fairly good. Leafs' Matthew MacLean was spotted by Audette and his skill impressed him enough to bring it to Kersus' attention, noting he was a small but creative offensive D-man likely slotted to be a #3 or 4. Kersus sent Timmins to check him out as a one-off.

Versatile forward Conner Brickley has been placed on waivers by the Hurricanes.

[thepuck 2018-10-22] Blues and Sens vs Habs

I didn't do a big write-up for the Blues 2 @ Habs 3 game October 17th. It was a good fun game so I sat back and enjoyed it. On the flipside, the Blues were underperforming so it made the Habs look much better than they actually are.

Eventually I hope to get back writing for both teams from a game however for now, while I dip my toes back into writing again I'll stick to one team for the most part.

Marchessault signs with the Capitals for one year.

Tier2

St. John's is readying for their first game against McNiven and his Albany Devils. DeSimone is still DTD with his injury and isn't slated to suit up against the IceCaps.

St. John's defeats Albany 6-1 on the road letting in a late PP goal. Albany dressed Nick DeSimone at the last minute despite warnings from their medical staff that he wasn't cleared to play.
