    Doesn't speak well for him that they'd rather play Brendan Kotyk, on an AHL deal, who is noteworthy only for being the oldest hockey player in NCAA hockey last season.

    Pack gave up a 2-0 lead. Now 2-2 shortly into the second period.

    Nell has sucked butt this year. Hartford's team defense has been about as good as the Rangers', but still, Nell's rookie year hasn't been great.

    Down 4-2 about halfway through the third. Nieves with 2A and Beleskey/Kosmo with the goals.

    Went down 5-2 shortly but now it's 5-3. Schneider deflects an Andersson shot.

    I like that their Twitter seems to at least have a sense of humor about how bad things are.

    Rock bottom when the opposing goalie is taking a shot and scores on your empty net... big F U to the WP.

    Blow it all up... season is over really... embaressing... once again.

    Not surprising. The team that is full of barely b- and c-level prospects, not enough veteran leadership and weak in goal.

    Doesn't help that all of their good defensemen are with the Rangers.

    Hahahaha... what reason have they given me in the past years? Zero :-P
    I've been following the team since the Binghamton Rangers days, heck, I even flew over from Europe to Hartford to catch live 3 in 3 home games in the Calder Cup championship year (2000)... The day Kris Newbury left is when things went downhill hahahaha

    If anything the Wolfpack has done better than anyone one could expect. It was clear from the beginning that there was going to be a steep learning curve--given how young team is and how little depth there is in the organization. Plus, realistically it was a lot to ask a young European goaltender to figure out the smaller rinks from the get-go. If half the team wasn't playing in the NHL they'd be in the thick of the playoff race.

    The results this year are the direct result of the way this organization has been run for the last 5-7 years. The outcome this season has been coming for a long time. Moving forward it's up to Gorton, Sather and Drury et al to restock the organization with players who will form a new core as well as give them some depth throughout the organization Hartford would get better too.

    Easier said then done.

    4 of their dmen and their starting goalie are with the big club right now. What did you expect?

    It’s not terribly surprising.

    There’s a steep drop after Andersson, Chytil and Lettieri.

    A bunch of their defenseman and their starting goalie are in the AHL.

    This team was very much about developing a handful of players this season. And all things considered, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

    Has Boo regressed since his demotion?

    I think Boo is what he is - a fourth line prospect.

    Even at the AHL level, offense was never going to be his selling point. In other words, he wasn’t one of those guys who produces at a higher clip at the lower levels and then settles into a bottom line role at the NHL level.

    Not that I’ve ever been a huge Nieves fan. That’s pretty well documented going back almost 6 years now.

    Pack stats not all that impressive. Thought Gropp would have a Cy Young debut but 10-6-16 not good at all. Looking forward to the infusion of better talent next year.

    None of it is surprising just stating the obvious.

    You have Chytil Andersson and a bunch of garbage down there
