Very interesting that they are choosing to role 3 goalies in Abbotsford instead of loaning one of Silovs or Martin to the ECHL.

 

Its going to be hard to give the two enough games throughout the season as I assume Mikey will get a big bulk of the games.

Covid insurance.  Keeps the parent club rolling in goalies and allows Clarke to work heavy minutes with everyone.  Not much of a problem.

Is there a radio broadcaster for the team?

AHL TV has free games the first weekend. It has a little bit of delay, as it seems like start of the broadcast is taking some time. Once it catches up, the stream is good. It also might have been Bakersfield arena issue last night. Today's game should still be free.

I was really impressed with Woo's game last night.  He sure is closer to being ready for the Big Club than I thought he would.  Looks like he could step in right now and look like he belongs there.  Tonight should be fun. B)

Watching first 15 minutes of the game vs Ontario. Noticing that the Canucks are lacking a natural playmaker in the group right now. 

 

Im sure Cull would've been hoping Petan or Dowling with their group right now because the center depth is really thin and lacking players that have that natural ability to generate puck possession and set ups in the ozone. You can tell they also miss Jasek's presence, as there isn't really a centre right now that provides the same unique skill set. Rempal and Dries have played center but are mainly wingers, have been converted in the centre position and it shows as the Comets are losing faceoffs much like their parent club a lot.


Also the lack of regular draft picks going through their system is quite apparent too compared to the Condors and Reign. Thus the level of high end skill is lacking with this Canucks group, but you can tell Cull's group is a hard working group.

Are we watching the same game?  Our young guys look great!  Klim, Woody, Foghte, Woo, Silovs. The King’s fam team is sos so.  Their young guys look small and scared, especially Madden and Turcott.  Those guys are craperolla.  Kings stink.  LA stinks.  And their farm team stinks.

They look okay but Ontario has possess the puck for much of the game. We are the more harder working team out there, but it hasn't led to much zone time. They are skating hard to disrupt lanes and doing a good job defensively tonight compared to yesterday against the Condors, but they don't have the high end game breaking skill in this group. Lots of good hard working prospects but not a lot of flash outside of Kilimovich.

 

As I said before the lack of a playmaking center is hindering the breakouts and ability to sustain pressure as I noticed Dries, Rempal, and Stevens making a lot of blind passes that lead to nothing.  The Abby Canucks need Petan and/or Dowling back.


Silovs has been a rock tonight.

The Canucks may have a player in Karel Plasek. Man this kid is fast and fearless in board battles.

 

Reign tie it up after the puck takes a weird bounce off the boards and skips in front to a wide open Reign player, no chance for Silovs. Silovs has been the reason the Canucks are still tied at 2, the defense has been pretty scattered in coverage tonight and a lot of bad pinches or reads in the neutral zone. I can see why Madison Bowey hasn't found himself back in the NHL, very much a high risk high reward guy.
