Chicago Wolves (8-8-3) return home tonight after a one game roadtrip to face the Peoria Rivermen (6-9-3). It's battle of the two worst Midwest division teams tonight, as each team tries to prove they aren't the crappiest.

The Wolves have struggled as of late, only winning one of their last 7 games. The Wolves will look to turn the calendar tonight, after an awful month of November. Jordan Schroeder has easily been the Wolves best forward as of late, and is currently riding a 3 game point streak (2 g, 1a). Anton Rodin has also picked up the pace as of late, scoring 6 points (1 g, 5 a ) in his last 4 games, assisting on both goals in last nights loss to the Admirals. The Wolves will be looking to be more disciplined tonight, as they have had 20 penalties against in the last 3 games.

The St.Louis Blues affiliate, Peoria Rivermen are the worst team in the Midwest division. Of note, forward TJ Hensick and goaltender Jake Allen have easily been the best players for Peoria this season.

Matt Climie is expected to get the start again for the Wolves, as Eddie Lack is currently sidelined with a lower body injury.

Expect some roster changes again tonight.

Line up (tenative):

I don't know, something retarded.

Cannata should get the start today. A crappy team to warm up against. Although Climie looks like he played pretty well last game.

If that ebbett-haydar-kassian line stays together again Arniel has officially lost it.

It's kind of tricky though because the Schroeder line looked good last game, so you don't wanna break them. Maybe a line of Kassian-Longpre-Gordon would work. I really just don't wanna see Ebbett and Haydar in the top six any more


Anyway GO WOLVES WEOOOO!

It's their time to get out of the crap against such a crappy. 4-2 win........ hopefully
goals from Kass, Rodin, Pinizzotto and Connauton

EDIT DUE TO RECENT BS LINEUP CHANGES.
Wolves will get shut out and lose 3-0 is my new prediction because now nobody can score on their team :)

#ChicagoWolves coach Scott Arniel sending a message tonight as Schroeder and Kassian are healthy scratches tonight against Peoria.

Connauton is also out of the lineup, but Arniel said he's been sick. So it doesn't seem Connauton is part of the message.


What the F!!! Are you kidding me? Both were on multiple game pt streaks till last night. Arneil needs to be canned ASAP.

Yet DESBIENS is in the lineup? I want to throw up.

Tyson Giuriato @TysonGiuriato

Via @platour68 - Kassian and Schroeder are healthy scratches for the @Chicago_Wolves tonight. Both tied for second on team in points.

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

:picard:


It's official for me. He's a bad coach. His team has lost almost every game in Nov, yet you bench the only guys who've been putting up pts. Meanwhile, Desbiens is still manning the #1 PK unit that's dead last in the league. He's got 1 point in 14 GP --- 1 point people! Tim Miller has 2 pts in 14 GP and holding a team worst -7 is playing. Yay, time to win some games! :towel:

edit: Also,

@Deirmoc Haydar is also a scratch, but he's a victim of the veteran rule as much as anything.


Tyson Giuriato @TysonGiuriato

Jordan Schroeder was tied with Brett Sterling for a team-high 9 points (5-4-9) in the month of October. 5 points (2-3-5) in last 4 games.

Okay yeah Schroeder and Kassian could be playing better, but so could Haydar, Sterling, Sweatt, Rodin, Longpre, DESBIEN, etc. I think you get the point.

Edit:Oh ya, Arniel=dumb.
I mean seriously what kind of message is he trying to send? Don't score goals or get assists or I will scratch you? wtf? o_0?

This coach is an f'n RETARD! What the hell is his problem? Why would you scratch your 2 best players? Doesn't he realize that he is supposed to be developing his young players? Not even gonna watch. These are the two guys that I get excited about watching everytime they play, and he benches them? IDIOT!! Please fire this moron he really SUCKS as a coach and is going to ruin our only prospects that have a real shot at making the Canucks. Was looking forward to this all day and now I could care less! IM SO MAD RIGHT NOW!!!!

Hmm I was excited when we hired Arniel, I thought he would do a much better job.

Clearly he's just not a good coach. He doesn't seem to know how to motivate his players at all, and he relies on his goaltenders to win him games because he doesn't know how to run special teams.

Time to can him or get a new farm team. This guy is not helping our prospects succeed.

Kassian and Schroeder both have another gear. Arniel's probably just trying to light a fire under their asses.

Kassian should be able to dominate with his size and Schroeder should be picking teams apart on the PP.

.... this is so half baked. I don't even want to know which dev players are subbing in for Kass and Schroeder - Friesen and Davies?

Arniel you sir are a f---ing idiot.

I updated the line up to 'something retarded'.

In another world I *might* understand benching Kass for his defensive issues. But in no galaxy should Schroeder be benched.

I bet this puts the nail in the coffin for Chicago as the Nucks affiliate. What sort of development system is this? Best offensive players get pressboxed for playing well? Way to support your players.

Ya Sauve should be a regular like Tanev. Obviously Tanev is better, but Sauve has been super solid defensively and decent (plus one really good shift I remember) in the offensive zone.

Not sure this is directed at Kass and Schroeder.

Maybe he's sending a message to the players other than Kassian and Schroeder to step up. It seems like those two are the only bright spots on the team at the moment, and this might be a way to get the rest of the team to get their crap together (as opposed to relying on the star prospects to put up numbers).
