No, he seems to be pretty dead-on. Pl3 is a useless plug.
Who is PL3 ?
It's the AHL, who cares. PLL would at least entertain.
So then what does he bring that Stortini doesn't? Why exactly do the Hamilton Bulldogs, who are struggling to score, need PL3?
I hope you don't mind being lonely on that ?
PL3, like you call him, sucks bad, real bad.
Tom Kostopoulos, on the other hand, can play hockey at the AHL level.
Honestly surprised that Boyce didn't pan out. I've seen him for a lot of years, during games with the Majors and Marlies before the Leafs, and I've never seen him be so ineffective and lethargic as he seemed for the Bulldogs. Dunno what went wrong, but I wouldn't fault management for making the attempt. (Whereas the Stortini contract... well, I couldn't see the point in that one from the beginning, and it only looks worse each game... too bad that wasn't a PTO too.)
I agree. Boyce was great for the leafs' third/fourth line when I saw them play. But seriously, AHL is a whole other beast than NHL. NHL has much more skill and speed but the game is also more open.
win a fight and take less stupide penalties!!! and for the record, Lemaire and Tremblay loved him because he was able to follow the game, so I think he can get a spot on a 4 line in a washed team like the bulldog
Just freeing up a spot for the great Ian Schultz to start back on his road to being the long lost 3rd liner the Habs have been looking for.
And again, why do the bulldogs need him? They have Hagel who is doing a better job than Stortini in most of the ways you listed. He follows the play better because his skating isn't nearly as bad as stortini, he's won some fights and he takes less stupid penalties.
Why do the Bulldogs waste time getting another plug when their problem is goal scoring?
because Hagel don't have the intimidating factor and Pl3 is better in all aspects of the game......
And how many Hamilton games have you watched where this 'intimidation' factor has come into play? There are a number of us who have watched every dogs game this year, and I'll tell you that I can remember perhaps 1 game where physical intimidation was really effective against the dogs, and stortini acted in the exact same way PL3 would have.
Just admit you want a homegrown durs Ã cuire and be done with it.
yes, i want a top fighters, not a huggy bear and a guy who have seem to lost is ability to fight.....
Considering the dogs looks like this
St-Denis - 5'11
Pateryn - 6'2
Ellis - 6'2
Corbin - 6'3
Nash - 6'4
Commodore - 6'4
Tinordi - 6'6
ECHL Stesjkal - 6'3
Qualier - 6'4
Blunden - 6'4
Stortini - 6'4
Avtsin - 6'3
Nattinen - 6'2
I'm not really sure how a 6'1 cheap shot artist is going to make us anymore intimidating. We already got Huggy the Stortini bear to do that and hand out hugs.
Though, PL3 did score 8 goals in an AHL season once. Maybe we should sign him for his offense.
since when size bring you intimidating factor? And its funny you calling him a cheap shot artist will you were probably one of those who didn't liked Laraque because he was to nice.
This Gauthier assembled team in Hamilton is truly uninspiring.
His legacy will last for at least another 4 years or more.
Thank God for the strike.
Since when does a 6'6 guy push you and you're not scared ? Unless you're some massive dude yourself.
I liked Laraque his first season. He fought on average every 3rd game.
He sucks a lot like Boyce. We don't need PL3 and we don't need Boyce.
Nathan Beaulieu is 6'3", not 6'1".
His being 6'3" is highly, highly debatable.
Dogs need a vet that brings offence ... who can they pick up
Which is it?
Hockeydb says 6'3".
Wikipedia says 6'2".
elite prospects has it at 6'1" and Habsprospects website has it at 6'2"
TBH I think it's somewhere between 6'1" and 6'2". He's never looked all that tall next to other players, IMO. Maybe they took his height when he had an especially stupid haircut.
Never before have I been so soundly defeated in a debate on hfboards.
Pierre-Luc who? Can someone tell me, please?
