A year has passed and we're back at the Allstate Arena for some AHL Hockey action.
Sorry. Not ready for this - baseball is still going on, my team is really into it, and hockey... can wait for all I care.
The game seemed "foreign". We don't have a single goalie we had before. Most of these guys have never played with us. Our new captain - Derek MacKenzie (Steve Maltais is gone - rumors fly - looking at Europe? showed up to camp way out of shape? retired?) - breaks his ankle sliding into a goalpost in the first.
Still don't have a powerplay - how many years will this go on? - Just feels like there wasn't enough practice time with the members of the final team to iron passing and just plain fundamentals.
