So is Sproul up because of ADA or because Shattenkirk is out?
I’d guess ADA. I was skeptical about Shatty returning this season, and I’ve always liked Sproul. I think he can carve out a niche similar to what Greg Pateryn has done this year in Dallas
They are both out with injury @nyr2k2 - hopefully Sproul is motivated for a good game tomorrow. There is no rush to get Kevin S. back - we are not playing for anything now.
Right, agreed. Just wasn't clear from the Tweet in the OP who Sproul was actually replacing since nothing is known yet about ADA. Seems like they'll both be out though, so I guess it doesn't really matter.
Also with Sproul, I thought he looked okay the first time he was up. He's UFA at the end of the year. He'll need to impress if he wants a deal from us.
The Pack are going to be busing them in on D if injuries strike any further.
I do agree. O'Gara is not good. But this year is a lost cause anyway and I think Smith kind of deserves the demotion/reprimand. Make him ride the bus for the remainder of the year and see what that does for his motivation. If he can't come to camp in the most kick ass shape of his life and ready to play hockey, then nothing can motivate him. I do think he will have a HUGE bounce back year next year though.
Only a ankle sprain!!! Thank the lord! That looked ugly
Also slept through his alarm clock first day.
