Stockton Heat Updates [2016-2017]

Recommended Posts

We take home ice. Interesting game, SJ's pretty stacked. We went up 4-0 in the first, they fought right back to 4-3. Rittich faced about a dozen shots afterwards, gave up a shorty breakaway, but had a couple of spectaculars.

Gillies plays too stoic imho, relying on his size to be in front of pucks imho. It really fell apart on him in the 2nd. Rittich is a little more active and did a better job passing the eyetest by being more mobile and reading the play well.

Of the skaters, Hathaway stands out for me. He plays the game to conditions and doesn't get too emotional one way or the other.

Janxy has a good base, but he still needs muscle mass and authority.

Andersson reminds me of Sieloff. Sorry, but he does. Too many penalties, too worried about being the tough guy.

I'll digress in that SJ has a good farm team...

We stole home ice...

But do we start Rittich or Gillies next?

^^^^^^

I think you have to give the net to Rittich.  He has been the better of the two for the season.  As much as it's a development league, you have to give the net to the better goalie.  6 goals against in two games is too many.

 

How has Mangiapane looked?  I think he plays with Vey at evens, but with Janko on the PP.

Like Ryan Strome, lol.

Don't trust massive jr scorers based on stat sheets.

He was pretty much a none factor.

From a guy that LOVES OHL guys.

 

I'd go back to Rittich too...why not? We have home ice advantage now. Bad for devving Gillies?

Rittich is only 1 year older.

I wonder if we treat Rittich as a hail mary because we have Gillies.

Maybe I'm wrong, but Rittich looks like a secondary citizen to me, too often.

And he's doing nothing to deserve it.

Not worried about Mangiapane yet.  Just his first year.

Rittich was signed for his experience and maybe a bit of a hail Mary.  I have a bit of faith in the "kid"

I'm not worried about Mangiapane at all. The Ohl players that take beatings and give it back are the guys I want.

Monahan

Bennett

Tkachuk

 

Need a couple more.

Even Josh Ho-Sang, he of "not-in-shape" fame last year. He plays a harder game than half of our roster...

I digress, as much as I'd really like to level in on this.

Tough game to lose last night. They were really pressing SJ after they tied the game up. Janko is no doubt a stand out player on this team, Mangiapane is a dynamo with great playmaking ability...he's not that much unlike JG with his shifty ability to create plays. Kulak was solid for them as well. Would have been nice to see a bigger crowd turn out but it was a close game until the 3rd, Stockton could have won this one. Rittich played a pretty solid game, curious to see if he gets resigned.

What has happened to Gillies? Why is he not our go to guy is he hurt?

 

 

I am torn between giving the guy the starts because he is the future, but some believe you gotta earn it by your play. As much as I want someone to earn it, you also don't get the experience by riding the pine.

Thats the drawbacks of not having a farm team close to home. Maybe, being only a couple of years in, they have to build up a fan base and in time they can stay. It is hard to build the fans when we move the team every few years. 

 

They should move them to Saskatoon or Regina or something like that, then they at least build something close to Alberta to create loyalty.

Move them to Airdrie AB I heard they have a new Rink I guess problem is the travel which was a killer for Abbotsford Heat. I also love the announcer SJ score and it's a whisper the heat score and he blows your ear drums.
