storm: Whalers 7 Storm 4

« Attack 4 Storm 2 | Main | Memorial Cup »

So much for lessons learned. A player who is no stranger to selfish penalties gets 4 min. on Friday and a player who is not gets 5 min. the next night. Both with the stick, both cost 2 goals and the games. You cannot hand an offense like Plymouths a 5 min. powerplay. Surprisingly this team is the third highest penalized team in the league which from what I've seen is because of three main players. One of which thinks constantly yapping at the refs at a what he thinks is a non call is more important then getting back in the play. Well boys I hope you get this out of your system soon, mistakes like this will cost you a series. I guess I'm just like any fan who gets frustrated when they want them to do well. Here's hoping for a long playoff run. Go Storm.

Call it as it is

The problem here is te coaching on this specific incident, no I'm not doubting Walker but come on coach you can't expect these guys to learn when they are rewarded for mistakes with more ice time! You can't just reem them out snap at them in the paper and then give them 25 mins of ice. Get real bench or scratch Posa I know he's a first time offender but in excusable and Pedan scratched you do that and you won't have a problem with stupid penalties


Call it as it is. Sorry, once again a diagree.


disagree sorry.


Anyone else getting tired of the coach / owner calling players out in the papers? Keep it in the room coach.


I think he obvious dose it in the room too.


The sad thing is that no one is mentioning the fact that it was a dirty hit that didn't get penalized that Posa was retaliating for. I don't really condone this type of retaliation but I can understand both Posa and Kosmachuk's frustration with some non-calls. I agree with those on rewarding bad/stupid playing with ice time as Pedan is the poster child for this. Ya he had a really good game on Monday against Kitchener but other than that his mediocre play is highlighted with really bad decisions and immature penalties.
