  • A month away from Game 1 and the BDN is already writing excuse articles??? Give me a break.

      Let’s review. One of the top returning players had surgery. Two of the best players in an excellent recruiting class are sidelined for a significant amount of time. And an important role player got hurt. That is all news by any standards. Should the BDN ignore it for some reason?

    Drop Whitehead or drop hockey.

    It is NEWS and not good news for the upcoming season and team…this hurts no matter if it’s only the training camp.

    Well, at least Whitehead will have a ready-made excuse for the season.  Larry, I’m eagerly awaiting your annual article about how this is Whitehead’s year to prove his critics wrong and this is the year he’s going to turn it around, etc., etc.

      It’s Tim Whitehead’s fault that Devin Shore contracted mono? Maybe all the other recruiters stayed away because they knew he was susceptible? Bracing myself for another year of “fans” hoping the team will lose so they can complain about the coach.

         most of the people who think Whitehead needs to be let go do not, i repeat do not root for the team to lose. I still root like hell for them to win. I would LOVE Tim to prove me wrong for doubting his coaching abilities and I think a lot of people would agree with that.

    To say that the team’s opening is “looming” is an understatement.  None of the players listed has proved themselves yet so their being out is not really going to impact the team.  Whitehead is a terrible coach and he is still not bringing in quality players.  Already Larry is creating excuses.  Good grief.

       I’d argue Parker proved himself already. Not as a scorer but as a good defensive forward who brings in some speed and can penalty kill. Proven role player anyway but given his speed it’s not a stretch to think he could’ve turned into a Matt Mangene type this season…
