Bellville lose 4-1.
Balisy lone goal.
And to think, I was doubtful Hogberg would ever play an NHL game after last year. Shows I know nothing about goalies, and how a decent to good team can make or break a goalie.
Your second point doesn’t apply. Hogberg is playing behind an ATROCIOUS team. And he’s having a mini breakout
I wouldn’t say they are atrocious. They’ve lost literally half their defense to Ottawa, Brown was injured most of the year so far, and Batherson is in the NHL for the time being.
The roster at the start of the year was pretty good...it’s depleted right now but they still aren’t too bad. Once Elliot, Burger, and possibly Batherson are back down they look much better.
And let's not forget all the injuries Belleville has had so far this yr which has caught up to them & the injuries Ottawa has had that has taken Belleville's better players away for long stretches. And add to that some of the young guys have won jobs in Ottawa & are likely not returning to Belleville.
Well they’re atrocious right now during his good spell lol.

Nice to be back been dealing with some health issues of late.......
Am mad at the Sens for trading away Mike Hoffman who was my favorite Binghamton Sen, loved how he developed down here...... Trading Eric the Great drove me crazy just hurts as he is all world.........
Be well and I miss this blog...... Devil blog is poor few posters......
Be well ReginKarlssonLehner.......
Will try to post more here and hi to all my friends here.......
I have in the past doubted brown's intensity or maybe willingness to engage physically for a man of his size.
But in today's NHL he won't even get slashed going up the middle of the ice. It is a gentleman's league now so Brown doesn't have much to worry about. He won't have to fight, take many unnecessary violent hits. As long as he keeps on being 6-6 and skating and passing like that he will have no problem dominating (at least offensively) in the NHL. Just my opinion.
Did they reassign McCormick? Or it was Smith-like situation and they were just hoping someone would pick up his contract off waivers?
Little bit of column A, little bit of column B
Yup he's been sent down
I am guessing they are very happy to have him in the AHL. He's one of the top 6 healthy forwards down there and we were really struggling to score, and the cost is really not high. McCormick isn't more than a cup-o-tea NHLer but he has been a consistent .50p/g guy in the AHL and he is quick enough that he can actually be a physical/forechecking presence down there (unlike in the NHL). We don't really have 12 guys who belong in an every day AHL line-up, currently.
I would not be surprised if he's dealt for a different AHLer at/before the deadline, though - similar to the Buddy Robinson trade a few years back. Let another organization take a look at him and we get to take a look at a guy we kinda like.
I think shielding the puck from opponents will be the key to Brown's success. He has to make sure his core is really strong, like Boedker and Duchene and then use the slick skill to distribute the puck. I'll admit to being nervous about his rumoured intensity issues, but he can still do it, there's plenty to like in his size and skill set.
Big game against first place Rochester tonight. With Max, the Bath, Elliott and Burgdeorfer in we should give them a run for their money
