    Since I don't see any BST games, I was just wondering what kind of player he is and does he have any shot in the NHL...Thanx!

    I really hope the last 2 games were not an anomaly and becomes the norm or atleast semi norm. I would hold off on a thread about him for now until he sustains his play for a month or 2

    Just ask ITM.
     
  4. think michael haley, except it seems like he has a pretty good offensive game when he can find chemistry with a more skilled player, i think he will eventually be our 4th line right wing

    I think 2 years ago, as an overage junior, he had a great year, 40+ goals, lots of penalty minutes, was the captain of the team, etc. Went straight to Bridgeport after the Isles signed him, and he was decent for the few games he played (a goal and a fight in five games). Then last year, he basically disappeared, he has more goals in 8 games this year than he had in about 46 last year. Still pretty young, only 22. Seems to have great chemistry with Strome.

    Just ask Nail Yakupov who Mike Halmo is and he'll know...



    It's nice to see Halmo doing well and be recognized for something other than that hit.

    Skating through the middle of the ice with your head down is a good way to have it removed. :D

    not as good a skater or on the puck as haley.
     
  10. haley has also had way more time to develop, puck protection comes with experience, and he is young and can still improve his skating

    Right now Haley is a more complete player, but we will see what happens.

    I almost wonder if Halmo could have played defense better than the Isle's entire blueline tonight. :sarcasm:

    It's kinda funny that people actually get amped about seeing guys of his ilk.

    This is a small reward for his efforts, as we saw with Haley years ago. I doubt he has as great an impact however. Hope I am wrong, we could use his grit.

    This is from the OHL prospects page, Feb 2012. Go down to the top prospect at the bottom of the page.

    We need more of this sprinkled about the non-top 9 forward slots. I imagine he will allow Martin to move up.

    That's me RDC. I always root for the underdog. I hope he gets his chance and shows what he can do. Not much else too see this season anyhow.

    Don't get me wrong. I hope he does well. But, this is the type of guy that would get utterly destroyed on these boards if he was 28 and signed in the offseason.

    Is he dirty then? I have not seen him play live at all so if the videos and reviews of him are not indicative of his game then disregard, but if he is a dirty player (or borderline dirty) I hope it is a quick stint..gritty and underdog I can root for.. dirty I can not.. I have too many bad memories of Matt Cooke, Darcy Tucker and Dale Hunter to root that kind or player, if that is what he is.. we need guys with size and physical players yes , but to me there is a difference between dirty and physical...

    We have had a lot a borderline dirty players as it is. I'm hoping he gives the team some energy and hits everything in sight, I miss Haley (Also a borderline dirty player...save the Pitt game) and I think we are missing that heat seeking missle out there....Martin and Clutterbuck hit a lot which is good but the momentum changing hits I rarely see out of those guys these days. Sometimes all it takes is one huge CLEAN hit to get everyone sitting on the there bench to pay attention.

    On a side note I would take 11 of those types of guys and 1 JT if I could so I'm a little biased.

    What has MM done to prove he is even earned to move up ? He isn't half the player he was last season and his offensive game to me hasent got much better at all. Love MM but right now he is no more then a 4th liner

    I am with you man. I am a huge fan of MM and Cluttebuck. I really liked Haley and Knopoka for the pure fact of what they brought the 4th line. I hope this guy can put up some numbers and stick with us. I would prefer to keep him over C Mac eventually if he can really show some energy and offensive skill. I am really looking forward to seeing him play if he can keep up his wrecking ball style. This team has missed that and needs that. Physicality is just as much as the game talented players. I hope he proves that he belongs and that we can streghten our lower lines.
