    I remember Mat Bodie from his PR Kings day in the BCHL. He was always the best player on the ice, didn't matter who we played. Like most BCHLer's who have that much talent, they're pretty small and he is that, small. I have no idea how he's filled out over the last four years but man if he's grown I can't say enough about him. We used to have out of town people come watch our games to watch Bodie play. My favorite Bodie story is during the playoffs his last year here. We were playing the Victoria grizzles and Geoff Courtnal was their coach (his son, drafted by Tampa played on the team). Well Russ and his Dad were at every game in PR, while I was doing security I asked if they were their to support their nephew/grandson and both said no, they just love watching Mat Bodie play. His brother was also on the team, but Mat was the most dynamic.

    Excited for the season to come! Can not say enough how happy we are to have our affiliate in a town that is excited about hockey. And can I say without getting rocks thrown at me, I hope we stay in Utica for the full 6 years and more! Can't wait to see the signings and how the farm team will look!

    I'm suprised at this assesment. I think he did really well. He broke up 2 2 on 1 opportunities with his stick, played the body and did a really good job positionally. He made some mistakes as well but horrible break out passes?? Maybe in the middle of the second period but I think that was do to lack of confidence on our entire teams part after a couple of bad goals then anything. It wasn't a perfect night, but it wasn't as bad as your assesment is saying. Truthfully if we look at the evening objectively I think the only defender we can say what the heck were they doing was Corrado. Even Hannay was decent enough until the second period break down.

    Well there only practice together was Sunday morning, I thought they didn't do that bad at all. I really think Honzik just rattled them. Up until Hamilton's goal I thought the Canucks were doing well and Schroeder, Rodin and Sweatt line were starting to control the play in the offensive zone. For Rodin I think the speed of playing on a smaller Ice surfice will be the biggest challenge, you just don't have the time and space on the outside like you'd be used to, but by the end of the game you were watching him make some really nice tight turns in the corner to avaid the d-men you can see potential there. Really take away Honzik and I think it would have been a lot closer.

    Random story that doesn't fit this conversation. Justin was playing for the Victoria Grizzlies BCHL team. 3 years ago Powell River Kings (where I'm from) were playing them in the second round of the playoff's the same year that Jeff Courtnall was their coach. I was working security for game 6 in PR and Russ Courtnall came as well to watch them play, well they lost that game pretty bad and during the 3rd period Russ started screaming and threatening one of the kings players who hit Justin pretty hard so I had to kick him out. He started yelling at me saying "I'm f'n Russ Courtnall you can't throw me out you piece of country trash etc.... Pretty good times. P.s. Justin was a pretty good player, really fast and loved to hit... I have no idea how he is now though....

    I believe Ellington suffered a concussion. That's why he's out. I think its also on the latest article from the Time's which talks about the amount Sauve's actually playing because of injuries.
