To everything, churn, churn, churn…

Season preview ran today, with a nice display package from David Wells on the front. Run out and get yours! Or if you’re cheap: The big bigness story. Breaking down by position. Five questions for the season. We didn’t do player capsules this year, but there’s a little-more-detailed-than-usual roster. And a glance at the league. […] [Read More]

Wreck my predictions, why dontcha…

on
It begins with Wilkes-Barre’s 5-4 win over Hershey. Chris Minard had a natural hat trick in a little under nine minutes, trumping Chris Bourque’s three-point night. (Not that the predictions were really in the paper. I’m thinking Hershey and Norfolk, Bridgeport with a chance to sneak into that discussion if things go right, Wilkes-Barre and […] [Read More]

Full house

on
Your (for some of you, anyway) 2007-08 Bridgeport Sound Tigers skated as a whole this morning. With the usual caveats about subject-to-change, here’s how they went today: F: Tambellini-Nielsen-Comeau Bentivoglio-Walter-Jackman Regier-Smith-Colliton Brennan-Johnson-Labelle-Morency D: Fata-A.MacDonald Kohn-Wotton Spiller-Fraser Masi Marjamaki was cleaning some stuff out. He said it’s not final where he’s going next. (It sounds like […] [Read More]

Peachy roster? No pit(t)s

on
Well, it’s out and it’s final: Jason Pitton’s starting in Utah. More than a bit surprising. (Marjamaki was said to be toward the low end of the depth chart, but I wasn’t quite expecting him to be sent away; Pitton comes a bit out of left field.) And not a whole lot of comment on […] [Read More]

Still (somewhat) waiting…

on
OK, here’s what we (think we) know so far: –Most obviously this morning, Masi Marjamaki was not here. What’s next with him, that’s unclear at the moment. (That’s a weird thing to write.) –Of the tryouts and semi-tryouts, four survive: Morency, Labelle, Gregg Johnson and Morrison. –The Islanders’ 23-man roster includes none of Jeff Tambellini, […] [Read More]

And still waiting

on
No word on this off-day, neither from up nor down, about what’s going on with the roster. Apparently some affected players won’t be told their fates until the morning, here and there. That would seem to indicate they’re working on deals with one (or two) (or three?) of their tryout players. And that would affect […] [Read More]

Camp, Day Last: Waiting for Word

on
Looked like a bit of fatigue out there today at Cromwell. Lots of skating this week, lots of work, lots of letting guys show what they could do. Don’t know if any of the young guys exactly made themselves indispensible, but they also just about all fit in. Wasn’t the most exciting game, especially with […] [Read More]

Where are you?

on
Noticed something kind of funny when I walked into the Bridgeport dressing room complex for the first time this season. To picture it, imagine you’re coming in from the runway after a period. You walk through the door, which opens in and to your right, not quite up against a support column that juts out […] [Read More]
