    Surprises? Hmm… not really. I would have liked to have seen Motin a bit more, and Trukhno played pretty well his last game. But these guys weren’t making the roster anyways just yet.

    Hey Racki, what about Bryan Young? To my untrained eye, his play has not looked very good. Motin got sent out before Young? That’s odd–unless I am missing something?

  3. Racki says:

    Yah it’s a bit surprising that Motin was the first to go of our remaining d-men. But didn’t Bryan Young block a shot with his face last night? Or was that Jake Taylor? Now that I think about it, I think it was Taylor. Either way, it was pretty brave and very Horcoff-esque. :P

    I actually think it was Bryan Young that blocked that shot with his face, and as a matter fact when it happened, I turned to my Fiancee and said something to the effect of “man that’s gotta suck blocking a shot with your face only to be likely cut the following day”

    lol, maybe management thought the same way and rewarded his bravery with a slight reprieve.
