    Quick game report for Hounds fans. they did not look good. Thomas took regular shift on defence in first period. Good player and did OK but is that really the best use of his skills? On the short handed goal, the forward plying D blew a tire after taking a bad angle to keep the puck in and it was 2-0 breakaway, Goalie makes save and the puck goes below the goal line, retrieved by a Wolf and passed to a wide open Wolf in front fro an easy tap in and still no Dog in site other than the guy who fell down and hustled to get back. Where the heck was everyone, certainly not trying. I am not sure they were on the ice, for it but Thomas, Lodnia and Thomasino did not play after that. Rested? or benched. Could be rested as Byfield also did not play after that. On the whole could not match Wolves effort and skill last night.

    Can’t remember the last IceDog player to be benched. . Assume resting.

    I believe resting is likely right. It was interesting later reviewing the highlights how similar Robinson and Levi goals were. Defenceman falling down trying to keep the puck in leading to 2 on 0 from red line in

    Just wait for next year. Should get worse before it gets better. Not a good time to an ID’s fan.

    With #44 ‘checked out’ I believe it’s time that #26 start showing why he was a first round draft pick.
    This afternoon would be a good time to breakout.

    Only time until the IceDogs unload players. Thomas would be an obvious asset for any team. Tomasino and Sopa are a combined -23 in last 5 games. Tomasino has zero points and Sopa 2 over that stretch.

    Would not be surprised to see Tomasino end up in Oshawa. Thomas in Sudbury. Sopa interest won’t be high.

    Long rumoured 26 to the Gens
    44 to the Wolves is interesting thought. Trade within the division? I believe the ID’s brass hold high value return on 44, they will be looking for an ‘03 in return.
    Lodnia is a tradable asset.

    I know they will be keen on extending their PO streak. Need to fill those seats at the Meridian Centre.

    You thoughts on keeping them all and trying for a first round exit?

    Thomas and Tomasino will both be gone. IceDogs won’t spend to try and fix things this year. It’s time to maximize the return on your best players and build. Based on the individual performances of Tomasino and Sopa, something has changed. Probably locker room who knows ? A positive start and it’s been a steady decline since.

    That’s going to be a tough knockout punch to ID’s fans to take. They will be looking at a rather large payload in return.
    Leaving the scoring up to Uberti and De Simone doesn’t look promising right now. Enright may be the only light they have.
    High hopes for Cato, but, being a large kid at 15 he probably was impressive against his cohort but, his skating is lacking. I see him bundled in a trade either this or next.
    Moore or Drysdale is the kind of D that is required on this team. Have yet to see that from Enright. He did have a nice assist in the dying minutes on Shane Wright’s tying goal at the U17 that he would like to have back.
    More than just dressing room issues

    All valid points. Don’t forget Enright has just started in this league. He has not been an issue on defence and will be a Top D in the league within a couple years. Obviously he will need to be part of a rebuild along with Cato.

    Last years run will cost the Dogs a couple years. The quicker they unload the big boys, the better.

    I believe Thomas and Tomasino will get a big return. If the return includes a 16 year old from the first round of the 2019 draft, that first rounder can only be dealt in the first week of January give or take a couple days. So, that being said, it is likely the two stars will be around until early 2020.

    I still think they will trade Tomasino some time next season.

    Your goalie that played against the Petes last night, is he new to the league / a rookie? Don't know that I've ever heard his name. He played one hell of a game though, made a ton of huge saves
