    No problem. Lower levels of hockey are my fave really if you are in it for the experience. It's just a shame they aren't closer to us here. Would love for Duluth to get a team even if it was ECHL.

    Not to mention, a lot of these guys make the NHL, I think the "E" alone has sent more than 450? Can't remember the exact number. QC has always had a cult following, but I'm really hoping Iowa fans get something to cheer about in the future. I've been down there before for the last game of the season, and even losing I think it was 5-3 to the Marlies the fans were great.

    Aka, cheap, hope local rivalries make money etc. At least with expansion people are seeing new teams. Toledo played K-Zoo 16 times in one year once. Brutal.

    Not sure who the Wild will send them, but they likely want one inked, and one who will be up and down.

    Vay and Milliron in QC, Stalock and Michalek in Des Moines, no? Bit of a step down for the Mallards from last season potentially.

    So, looking at who we have under contract...

    Downing - Graovac - Mitchell
    Anas - Cannone - Tuch
    Lucia - Bertschy - Lang
    Jenys - Brassart/Gilmour - Gabriel

    Olofsson - Reilly
    Labbe - Warner
    Seeler/Palmquist/Bartley/Gudbranson

    Stalock
    Michalek

    Does this have the making of a respectable minor league team? 2nd and 3rd pair D has some question marks, but I think the top 9 forwards look pretty darn solid.

    One could quibble with the specifics, but I agree with your basic point. Should be a mid-table squad - average amount of skill, not much experience.

    I like the Bartley signing, he put up some good points breaking into the AHL, has some NHL experience and provides more depth. Wouldn't be much of a surprise if he and Reilly are the top pair. Gelinas is also in the mix for an AHL spot.

    Also interesting to see where they slot Gabriel. If the Wild liked him enough to keep him on the playoff roster, I can see him getting top-six minutes.

    But with no fourth line in St. Paul, all of Dalpe, Graovac, Tuch, Gabriel, Schroeder, and Mitchell I think have a chance at making the big club to start.

    Also agree from the other thread that it's more likely Folin starts in the NHL than Reilly, barring that big trade.

    The capacity for the iWireless Center will be set at 5,100 for Mallards games when the team’s twentieth season opens October 14, providing the fans of the Quad Cities an even more exciting and intense atmosphere for every Mallards home game.

    The Mallards have signed defenseman Jace Coyle. Coyle, 26, returns to North America after two seasons in Europe.

    They make more playing in the Elite league, might be a good pick up.

    There seems to be a ton of hockey players coming out of St. Louis lately. Didn't know Parks was from there.

    I see they were on the wrong side of a 3-1 hockey game. Hopefully they play better Saturday.

    I'd like to see Michalek get the start - needs to earn his way to a 60-40 share.

    Tuch did get his first pro point (assist). Didn't see the game, but noticed Lucia wasn't in the lineup. Lang, JEE didn't play either.
