Thanks for the compliment, Lindsey! The feeling is mutual. Keep up the great work!


Re: Hamrlik/Isles

To be honest, Hamrlik has most definitely lost a step or two, especially over the last two seasons (notice I didn't say years). He'll probably be great on the PP, but his even strength usefulness is not what it used to be. Not ideal for the Isles' situation.

Plus, when the Isles signed Zhitnik, it was rumored that Hamrlik was looking at the $4million mark.

It's too bad, I enjoyed watching Hamrlik play for the last few years, but I guess we all have to get used to roster churn these days.


I really think Red should have retired after last season, as I don't think he'll enjoy the upcoming "rebuilding" season. I can't say I was surprised by Montoya leaving, but Tamby totally blindsided me, as he never really gave any indication of leaving early before. Now it's up to Ebbett to lead the team; don't think anyone expected that a month ago.

Matt Hunwick rules.

Great blog. And, I agree with nearly everything you said about Hecht. He quietly makes his linemates better and is the only guy on the team other than Adam Mair who gives it his all every shift.

Nothing would make me happier than to see them beat the Isles on opening night. It would be a great start to the season.
