    I asked the question why a guy like Smith should stick around if Letowski is on a short rope because Letowski never brought Smith in. OHLTG framed it like Rychel should ask the players what they think of Smith. I made the mistake of engaging him in conversation though my bad.

    I just said you treat them as individuals and not as one combined thing... and I stand by that. If the players are finding JS to be useful, that should be taken into consideratin for the future. Don't because someone doesn't like TL doesn't mean JS is automatic to leave, too.

    what should happen is the new coach decides if JS stays or goes. JS might not be a good coach/fit for a certain system a new coach wants to run. Sometimes you just need to clean house and start fresh

    This is why you need a much better supporting cast. Spits will have 4-5 20+ goal guys and still near the bottom in the OHL for goal scoring. The big thing is accounting for injuries and they been playing below the max for some time now. I still believe the game has changed a lot in the past 8-9 seasons and Rychel hasn't accounted for it and adjusted properly.

    Ah ok. If my info comes to fruition I would hazard a guess WR hires a quality high end guy this time. I think TL was somewhat of an experiment that hasn’t worked out. If the hiree is what I think, he will be given full control of bench personnel. Kinda why smith and Webb are here. Coaching by committee shall we say... I just hope my info is solid. I’d hate to give up my ST’s but I will if he’s still here next year.

    Not to derail a really nice discussion, but looks like DiPietro could be starting for the Canucks tonight.

    The NHL can be very unkind to 19 year old goalies. Unfortunately it will be an experience he will never forget for obvious reasons.

    If my stats check out and Mikey finishes this out, He'll be the first 19 Year Old Goalie with a complete game since Lehner in 10/11, before that Fleury in 03/04. And 1 of 43, 19 year old goalies since the 1919/1920 season.

    I hope they give him another shot to prove himself before sending him back to Ottawa.

    If there's one thing we know about Mikey, he'll shake this off and take the positives from it.

    I would hope they move on from Letowski. I'm not questioning your info but if they are hiring a quality high end guy a lot of those guys don't become available until May/June. That would be past early bird renewal for sth. They had 3500 for Saginaw on Thurs, that tells you their STH # is less than 3500. Needless to say they aren't going to get a lot of walkups the rest of the way it looks like. If fans are turned off by the current product Rychel would have to make a move quick to help save some #'s.

    Looked like a decent third period for Mikey. Gave up one goal on a tipped shot that appeared to be going wide from the angles I saw. Seemed to settle down in the third. Big game, hopefully he forgets it and moves on. And I really hope he gets one more chance at the NHL lever before sent back. It would be tough if this was his only NHL game for the next couple years.

    Facebook trolls are out in full force with DiPietro. It's kind of insane to watch unfold.

    I was pretty surprised to turn on the Canucks game and see Mikey was starting. It's very rare for a junior emergency goalie call-up to get a start. Dylan Ferguson got some playing time last year with Vegas but it was in mop up duty. He didn't start any games. For card collector's like me it means his rookie cards will be coming out later this year, which is pretty cool!

    You could tell he was super nervous (who wouldn't be in his position), I could feel his nerves through the tv. The Canucks sure did him no favours coming out as flat as they did. He certainly couldn't be faulted on the first goal. Even though the outcome wasn't pretty it was awsome seeing him play in an NHL game. Congrats to him and his family. Hopefully there will be many more NHL games in his future.

    Nice to see dipietro get a start in the show.
    Must of felt like he was back on Windsor.
    No help at all especially from the defense.

    I question the info myself. Don’t usually hear anything about coach searches. I’d be shocked if anything happens before the summer anyway it’s the nature of the beast. Most STH just renew, the swings are never that big. Me I’ll wait til I know what’s goin on.
