Come Talk To Me

Well it is Friday and close to 1 PM EDT when you are reading this then you are in the wrong place. See the cool people will be found over at the Blueshirt Bulletin website for a chat including yours truly.

Here is your chance to yak away with myself and some of the others involved with the Blueshirt Bulletin about all things Ranger. Now for me, I will be the bad guy wearing the I Heart Slovakia for hockey gold but I will as always will gladly talk to you guys about the Ranger prospects.

So be there as we will be taking attendance and I would hate to see anyone sent to detention.

Oh sure now you want to find out about the Ranger prospects as we had 2 in action starting with junior Carl Hagelin (2007 6th) as he led his Michigan Wolverines to a 4-0 win over Notre Dame. Hagelin had a shorthanded assist to extend his career high scoring streak to 10 games (2-9-11) which is also tops among all Ranger prospects.

The season has not been a good one by Michigan standards as their streak of 19 straight NCAA appearances is in deep trouble. This win guarantees that they will finish no worse than 8th in the CCHA standings.

For Hagelin though his numbers have been rock solid as Michigan's leading scorer. Hagelin is 14-24-38 which are all career highs as Hagelin still has time to break 40 points and establish himself as a serious contender for the Hobey Baker next season as a senior.

Daniel Maggio (2009 6th) and his Sudbury Wolves are fighting for their playoff spot as they entered Thursday's game with the Brampton Battlaion holding onto the 7th seed by virtual of having 1 more win than 8th seeded Niagara.

It was a golden chance for Sudbury to firm up a playoff spot but they wound up getting badly beaten by the Battalion 6-0. It was an ugly performance by Maggio and his Wolves which was a serious disappointment after both played solid games last weekend.

In any case we are coming down to the last 2 weekends before the playoffs so we will find out who is going to make it and why those who do not didn't.
