    Unfortunately, I was unable to catch the game today. I forgot to record it too! DAMMIT!

    It is really hard for me to comment on a game I did not watch but looking at the scoring summary, I see the top line was shut down for zero goals. That doesn't happen often. Probably some good line matching going on. It looks like the Chmelevski line did well though, which is good. He's back for his first game after the WJHC.

    I guess this is a great example of why you want home ice? It does make a difference, especially at the OHL level.

    It will be interesting to see how this team gels over the next couple weeks as they start to learn how to play together. I know we only added a couple players but it stretches the roster out and we did have a lot of omissions through injury and tournament so this is the first game in about 6 weeks we had the full lineup out there.

    Saw the last half of the game yesterday on Sportsnet. Man, losing to London and @#$##$# Hunter always stings. Man I hate that guy.

    It was a heck of a game, though, and all the signs are there that this would be an amazing OHL Final. We need to tighten up defensively, and your hope would be that DiPietro would be a difference maker in a seven game series. Yesterday he was OK, but you are definitely hoping that the best goalie in the CHL looks like the best goalie in the CHL. Yesterday he was pretty average, but of course he has been through a lot in the last month or so. By the time the OHL playoffs roll around, he will have had two months plus to settle into Ottawa, get into a routine, and get dialed in.

    But yeah, add Formenton back to that London lineup and they are going to be a handful...

    Knights have never had a problem scoring on DiPietro, seems they have his number. Good tight game, would be a heck of an OHL Final.

    I don't know about past Windsor/Knights games but no goalie stops those 4 goals yesterday where either he was hung out to dry or very good plays (Bouchard) gave him no chance.

    DiPietro has already shut out the Knights once this year. He will be good when you need him.

    One small negative that's been bugging me. G. Clarke takes a lot of hooking/ holding penalties in the offensive zone. He's got to skate more and cut down on the stick work. I know he's nort the fastest so that's a factor but he should look at Keating and how he does things...smarts and body position. If he keeps it up I'd sit him a game to get the message across.

    Graham Clarke, outside his ability to shoot the puck, really isn’t a very effective hockey player. He doesn’t contribute much. This is a reason why he keeps getting drilled down the depth chart.

    I don’t really know if it is skills related or sheer laziness. I hope he manages to tuen a corner and is able to start elevating his game otherwise he will find himself languishing away as a PP specialist.

    I will never understand your GM's thought process.

    You're getting beat by exactly the players that you left off the table.

    Clearly, you have some work to do.....because the teams that are now better than Ottawa are only just starting to gel.

    Ouch.

    Maybe I'm wrong, but many GM's seem to agree. You had it and you don't anymore.

    Defence too young exposed in the third yesterday with two quick London goals.

    Mistake not too strengthen the d at the deadline. They have looked out of their element this weekend. Speed is a bit of an issue but lack of puck skills is a real issue. Turn overs, throwing pucks away, and poor pp presence. Lots of time to fix it but work to do. Not sure the skill is there?

    Every team is allowed a stinker. Last one I recall was game 2 of the season (7-3 Petes) where 67's gave up 4 shorties.

    Today everybody was awful, including DiPietro (who, in fairness, had little help). I imagine Kody Clark gets a game or 2 for the slew-foot match penalty.

    Eastern conference is slower game? There were players available that would have been an upgrade, but they would not move roster players. These are some of the same roster players that some are being criticized by Some now.
    Strange that 67 go big and grab the goalie and then hope that they don’t need d. Check D line up on Windsor when they backdoored the Mel cup and won it at home after a long rest. He is very good, but d help for 67 was obvious. Now up to the coaches to fix this and make a run

    After loading up, and facing London and Guelph, there is no excuse for stinker. 5w 5L in last 10 games.
