From Let’s Go Amerks

Is there anything to dislike about the way Will Borgen plays? I can't think of anything.

Tennyson and Redmond sat tonight for Borgen and Nate Paestch. McWilliam is also there too.
Incredibly deep AHL blueline.

Have trouble shutting teams down but have at times been able to score their way out of trouble.
Going to need Ullmark to step up and Syracuse and Toronto won’t be easy.

But Botterill has assembled pieces that could do what he intended down there.

Absolutely. A playoff game might be the only way to top last years Rochester meet up. I would prefer the 25th, but either night works for me.

Dude I wish this OT wasn’t swallowing me up. I had a great time with all you guys. If they can make it to round 2 I’ll be winding down by then I hope. Well just have to do another meet up. First and second rounds at the bar are on me!.....

Seriously.

Well.. if you want the sure thing you'll need the 25th to be the date.

 

Might be interested.. need to check the schedule and see what tickets cost.  A few unexpected expenses have left things a little thin.

I noticed Blackwell and Malone won a couple of team awards. Are they playing their way into getting look with the Sabres sometime next year?

Blackwell does not have a Sabre contract, but Botterill specifically mentioned Malone as one of three under-the
-radar prospects he like. CJ Smith was another. Can’t remember the third off the top of my head.

That doesn't mean Blackwell isn't given a two-way contract over the summer.  I like Smith's chances of making the team next year, especially if he has a strong playoffs.  We look to have a glut of forwards, but are any really good enough to help our top 6?

 You guys are going to need to bring a red Modo Jersey with Ullmarks name on the back to put on an empty chair to signify the gravitas of the event!

Don’t feel too bad, man. I live here and I don’t think I’ll make it to a first round meetup. If there is a fourth game I’ll be there, but let’s hooe we’re on to round 2 by then.

I’ve been so “chronologically f’ed up” that I’m just now coming to grips with this thing starting up tomorrow. Amerks site didn’t seem to mention broadcasting of any type. TV? Radio at least? Never done the radio and would have to sit in the truck as that’s the only radio I have. Anyone know of any other options? Besides a drive to Cuse.
BTW....

Which Hip tune is my quote from?

RIP Gordie.

I’m probably going to pay per view it from AHL Live.
Cost about $8 a game last time I did it, and the quality was poor.
But I’m stupid that way.

ECHL affiliate Cincinnati stayed alive in best of 5 playoff by beating Fort Wayne 7-6 in OT. Johansson stopped 45 shots; 148 in the series for an average of 49 saves per game. He’s projected to be the Amerks starter next season. FW leads series 2-1.
