No points and a -3 from McEneny tonight. They play again tomorrow against London (should be a good test against a strong team) and I believe their game on Nov 30 is on Sportsnet.

Watching him play against the Knights today and he looks really big in his own end. He's paired with Murphy and is getting a lot of minutes. It seems no matter what he's using his size out front of the net while Murphy is the one along the board. I'm not sure if that is by design but it's just something I've noticed so far.

He's on the top PP and top PK line. Obviously Murphy runs things for the most part on the PP and that kind of limits his involvement because they keep things on the right side.

I'm no scout, obviously, but I like what I see in his game. Big steadying influence who looks calm no matter where he is.

I was at the game. He was on the ice a lot but just seemed unnoticeable. I know thats high praise for a defensive defenceman, but I didn't find him very impressive.

Probably because McEneny is 6'2" 202lbs and Murphy's only 5'11" 176lbs. I think McEneny is capable of working along the boards as well, but stays in front of the net because Murphy is unable to clear the crease.

And offense on the PP would run through Murphy since that's what he's known for.

McEneny is playing on s-pac right now.
He scored 1 goal and looks really smooth on the PP, really like this low key signing.

#Canucks RT @BrownRecord: Kitchener Rangers defenceman Evan McEneny (VAN) not hurt, sent to dressing room for third as a msg from coach.


Not sure why yet. Will tweet Giuriato and ask.

I only watched last game, he played all 3 periods and OT.
The tweet is referring to tonights game, but he still picked up an assist in 2 periods.

So a goal and an assist in 2 games and he gets sent to the room. Not just benched but sent to the room. Must be something serious otherwise the coach would just have benched him for the last period.

From what I'm hearing, It's because he's logging on too much ice time and not changing shifts even when he's tired.

Yeah I watch the game on SN the other night.

He looked really good, used his size well against the boards, battled hard down low, didn't let guys break free. Made good passes, had some good moments jumping up in the play, looked good on the powerplay.

the only negative I saw was that he got caught standing still a couple of times and guys went past him, overall skating isn't an big issue for him, but he doesn't have quick footspeed IMO.

Pbbly has something to do with lack of defensive play or like Rey said taking extended shifts.

I think Rey could be on to something. This is something I could see a coach getting angry about. Lack of defensive awareness would pbbly just get him benched.

Got a reply: Seems like a pretty harsh way to send a message.


Tyson Giuriato @TysonGiuriato

@Deirmoc He made a bad play that led to a goal and his coach, Steve Spott wanted to send a message to the team to wake up.

I don't think he has a lack of defensive awarness, he actually seemed really solid defensively.

I hope Rey is wrong because that's not really something you want to see in your young players but perhaps he is onto something.

I don't really have a problem with him making bad plays. He's young and still has lots to learn and the coach was right to send a message. Now what we do want to see from our prospects is how they respond to these kind of messages

Well, it is an issue if he's taking 60+sec shifts. I didn't time him at all when watching the game on Friday but I did notice once where he was out on the ice for awhile. If it is just about a bad play defensively, it's a pretty tough message to send a guy with some offensive ability to the locker room for the last period when your team is having a really tough time scoring goals.

from what I've gathered Rey was talking out his anus (or based on a REALLY bad source), and it was sending a message for a bad defensive play (something that has been plaguing the entire team for a long time, it just happens that Evan was the one who made the last one before the coach wanted to send a message. it was going to happen to the next player that made an error leading to a goal against, just bad luck that evan made it)

2 assists and an even rating in tonights 4-3 shootout win over peterborough. cool to see him produce without murphy. I've been kinda concerned he has been playing in ryan's shadow and benefitting from his offensive skills. Looks like he can generate some offense on his own as well.

I was at the game last night. I didn't notice him too much but I wasn't watching for him specifically. He and Max Iafrate made a bad play that led to a short handed goal for the Pete's. The rangers have wicked goaltending that makes up for a lot of defensive mistakes so I'm not entirely sure how to judge their D. They did give up 48 shots to one of the worst teams in the league.

They can't be just pinned on the defense though.

It's kinda hard to expect a ton from this team when their top players (& their coach for that matter) are all away at the WJ's (Gibson, Faksa, Murphy)

It is nice to hear your opinion though since you live in an area that makes the games excess-able for you, unlike with alot of us.

Thanks! I do enjoy watching junior hockey. I'll be at the Steelheads-Wolves game tomorrow watching Frankie C.


That's true about the guys away but I think McEneny is getting more opportunity when Murphy is away. And Murphy is not having a good season. The Rangers really are a letdown this year. If they didn't have two of the best goalies in the CHL I'd be very curious to see where they would be.

I will say that they don't lose much when Gibson is away. I think that's my third Rangers game this year and I've seen Frankie Pallazzese all three and he is spectacular. Has even better numbers than Gibson.

Yeah that's the great thing about living in Ontrario in that area, there are so many CHL cities you can go watch, here we only have the Giants since the Bruins moved long ago, and I'm sure no one wants to go to Victoria and back for one hockey game.

That's not good that there goaltending has kinda carried them, they have a good team I would expect them to contend for the OHL title and possibly the mem cup myself.

I do agree Pallazee has been good, saw him in the Rangers game on Sportsnet and he looked great. How has Matt Puempel looked so far this season? Has he been a good pick-up?

Spott's alright with offensive talent - see Jeff Skinner and Gabriel Landeskog (also Faksa and Puempel). But defense is definitely suspect. I don't know any big-time defenseman that comes out of Kitchener...

If someone does lemme know LOL
