    Like you said, no suprises. I hope Thomas makes the Barons, I liked his game during the Rookie Tournament.

    Thomas got tuned good in one fight though. LOL Like, real bad. But he seemed OK other than that.

    I think Livingston is a guy I hope to see on the Barons too.

  3. gr8one says:

    Isn’t that the fight that Thomas was jumped, head-locked and pounded on by that guy that was like twice his size(Mashinter I think?), before he even really had a chance to drop his gloves?

    lol, can’t really hold that against him.

    Good to see Livingston get a tryout in OKC too, If he plays like he did in the YS tourney, he should make the team.

  4. Racki says:

    hhaha, yah, I think he had enough time to get his gloves off, but he was mugged for sure, and yes, can’t hold it against him, and I’m not. That just wasn’t a way a guy wants to be known by his camp performance. :P

    lol, indeed.

    I’m looking for a big year from Cornet in OKC. He’s got great potential in my estimation. Also I hope Kytnar turns into the defenssive prodigy he was drafted for.

    was livingston 69? Whoever 69 was was demolishing guys quite often.

    Difficult number to not take notice of.

    Livingston was indeed #69…
