Sent Down

Today it was announced that Forwards John Mitchell, Robbie Earl, Jiri Tlusty, Kris Newbury and Jeremy Williams were sent to the Marlies.

Defensemen Dominic D’Amour, Jaime Sifers and Tyson Marsh were sent to the Marlies while Phil Oreskovic was sent to the Brampton Battalion (OHL).

My main man Justin Pogge went to the Marlies as well (though this is no surprise).

My thoughts on this are simply that I am glad Tlusty went to the Marlies and not to Brampton and that I am sorry to all of those who wanted Williams to crack the line-up. I thought D’Amour and Newbury were pretty good but I did not expect them to make the team or was I so impressed by them that I would list them as one of my first call-ups.
