    Merkley has been pretty good on the bench. No tantrums , swearings or carrying on poorly. The classless antics seem to be in the past.

    He is seems like a different kid .

    Maybe throwing the glove at a referee (allegedly) and being traded was a "come to Jeusus" moment for him and he has seen the error of his ways.

    In any event I have an appreciation for his changed behaviour.

    He got a penalty for unsportsmanlike conduct-verbal abuse of an official 3 games ago.... He has 3 "USC-abuse of official" penalties in his last 7 games.

    You're really going to say he looks like a different kid and "the classless antics are in the past" because he went 2 games without an abuse of official penalty? Lol c'mon man

    I hope he figures it out as much as anyone, he's by far the most important part of our team going into next year, but going 2 games without verbally abusing a ref isn't quite the bar we should be setting as an achievement

    They sent me a signed SDA photo in my season ticket renewal package which is kind of funny since I rag on him more than anyone on the team. Still pretty cool though, I'll be renewing for next year.

    The Ottawa game, and a lot of games recently have had a ton of energy because of the amount of fans/kids in the stands. Whoever is getting the hockey teams in is doing a fantastic job cause those little ****s bring a ton of energy. They almost got the wave going the other game.

    So glad I didn't get SDA. I got Paquette. I'm renewing, too.

    Ouch.

    Just kidding, I like Cole. At this point waiting for him to lay someone out is the most exciting thing to happen during the games.

    Wow another game they battle back to get at least a point. It's obviously a lesser team tonight but a comeback is a comeback

    Good to see Timleck get a chance in the shootout and bury it.

    I respect the level of commitment you've dedicated to "the guy who was drafted in the 1st round to the NHL is a good player"

    Offensively, Merkley was fantastic tonight. He single handedly created two goals.

    As he should be doing every night. He was drafted in the 1st round as a D-man because of his offensive talent. That's rare

    My favourite part of Merkley dominating is how much it pisses off opposing teams and their fans who can't help but respond to every single comment about him.

    I love the way that the Petes are preparing themselves for the playoffs by keeping all of the games close.......whether they are playing Ottawa or Kingston.....:laugh:
    The Petes should be happy with the result - 3 points this weekend - even though it wasn’t pretty.
    IMO, the Petes best players are all back next year....Robertson, Kirk, Merkley, Chisholm, Jones....and they will all be a year older.

    I like Fraser and Gallant as two OAs next year. I’m kind of hoping the Petes can target Kaliyev from HAM as a sniper and then a solid OA Dman. I know that it will cost them one of their two 1st round picks this April, but the Petes are in a great position with the 5th pick and the 7th - 13th pick as well.

    I have high hopes for players like Cermak, Butler and Spearing to take big steps forward as well.

    I know it has been a struggle lately but I’m optimistic that they are heading in the right direction. My hope is, at the very least, a hard fought Round 1 loss of 6 games.
    I still think that, if the stars align, they could upset one of the top 4 teams.

    Should be lots of jockeying for position over the last quarter of the season.

    Merkley has been a positive addition to the team especially on the power play, a bit of a gamble defensively but we knew that going in. Gallant is also a difference maker in all aspects of the game. A big body who plays well in both ends of the ice. This is a much better team with him in the lineup.

    Quick stat of the day: Paquette, Denault, Osmanski and Cermak have played in all 52 games for the Petes this season. A coincidence that they're not shy about going in and out of traffic?

    Yes?

    Is your argument that guys who initiate more contact get injured less or...?

    Nope, just a question regarding the four players I mentioned. There are several factors that lead to missed games. I don't know if it's a coincidence that those four haven't missed a game. I think players who are stronger on their skates and or not afraid to go into the danger areas are probably tougher physically and mentally. It's obviously not 100% for every player who holds those skill sets. An injury can happen at any time, especially with physical players, but some are probably better at protecting their body. I wouldn't say Paquette and Cermak initiate heavy contact, but Osmanski and Denault do. Gallant initiates contact, but he seems really weak on his skates.

    I'm not sure it's a coincidence that SDA and Hinz played 68 games last season and haven't missed many this year. For different reasons than the four players originally mentioned.

    No TV coverage tonight. Rogers TV has committed to showing ... bingo .... :laugh:

    Edit: scratch that. Looks like Rogers TV is pulling back on OHL hockey all together.
