leamington/Chatham trade

Post by flyers2011 » Tue Nov 13, 2018 8:33 pm

Sounds like the Chatham Maroons have improved their offense by trading for Griffin Robinson and Maddux Rychel. 2 big additions to the Maroons lineup.

Wow! I can see why they dropped all the other players from last years roster for sure. But not these 2, why would they
get rid of 45 points combined already Mid Season?

Trade seems to be complete. Really looks like the flyers got fleeced. I’m surprised a team would fold up shop while in 3rd place. Not much of a loss when it comes to Ryckel, but giving up your best player must send quite a message to the rest of the team that this year is unwinnable. I didn’t think there was all that much separating these two teams before the trade, but now it’s obvious. Chatham must have wowed them somehow....$$$... Caledonia took a year off, guess we needed a Caledonia Jr

So much for the Big Trade! Chatham loses again to a bottom team? In M.R. defence, he is very smart with the puck,
never panics and has great vision for the game, you want him on your team for that. Just don't expect him to back check, he cannot skate, probably the worst most unorthodox skater I have ever seen to honest!

We don't do the initial thing here, you can just say Rychel.

After what we saw in lassale tonight Chatham fans are absolutely furious with rychels performance. Griffin looked out of sorts but he will fit in well Maddux on the other hand didn't even deserve to be a water boy!

Yes! Griffin is a player that any team would love to have both on and off the ice, no doubt!

Big Win by Leamington on home ice yesterday. Seemed to outwork the Nationals and shut their big players. I think we are going to see a better all around Flyer team after the big trade.

Since making the trades, Leamington is 3-0 and Chatham is 1-2. I know it's still early, but we'll see how this works out for them.

I am still not convinced that Chatham has the goal tending to reach the Sutherland Cup? A 3.0 G.A.A will get you eaten alive come play off time! Could use a bit more on the back end, 3 or four 4 D won't cut it either.

Can't really make a judgment call on how effective this trade is until Chatham plays with their full roster. Schulz and O'Brien are two top players that can make a HUGE impact. I get the comments around goal tending (G.A.A.) - but one can only assess how strong this team really is when the team is playing with full roster. Schulz and O'Brien are certainly better than average players and can be relied upon to put the puck in the net!

I don’t think goaltending or defence is the problem. Harris winning goalie of the month was well deserved. Bone, O’Donnell and Murray are all very capable dmen. Getting 20 or so shots against a bottom team, while losing to them 3 times is very telling. Maybe chemistry in the room, or I’d even go as far as coaching. Money isn’t an issue with that team. They’ve had great teams the last couple years, but can’t ever find the coach to get them over the top. I have a tough time watching a team with that much skill be as undisciplined as they are. When the players see the staff screaming at officials, it’s easy to follow suit.

SK you bring a very valid point in terms of the coaching! Head coach is a headcase! He and his team would benefit from keeping his loud mouth shut, no doubt! Ref's don't forget those guys, especially come playoff time!

just roll your 4 lines so your so called gunners have some energy later in the game or in OT. You sign these guys snd then play them 4 or 5 short shifts. That’s not developing players you’ll need to be a team when the playoffs roll around.

I couldn't agree with you more when it comes to the "roll your 4 lines" every night through the season! It can be tough some nights having to feel the aches and pains of that methodology. Provided its managed properly on and off the ice.
The team and everyone of its members benefit and grows stronger from it, in the end. The real good "coaches" do that!

Leamington is still undefeated following the trade. The team is looking good after some convincing wins. I’d watch out come playoff time.

Doesn’t surprise me. I’m sure Robinson would be getting more ice if he were in Leamington. Leamington seems to play everyone, including their 16 year olds. Coach is moulding a team of 4 good, hardworking lines. They will be even stronger next year and won’t need a massive turnover of players.

Robinson worth much more than the two fine players they traded for him saved the coaches job tonite sloopy game lets see how we do against FLYERS if the coach expands on the use of shorter shifts and the four lines.

With the offence that Chatham has. They should be averaging 4 to 5 goals every night! Coach definilety needs
to put his ego aside and start coaching the "Team" and remember its not all about him!

Listened to the game tonight. Sounded pretty close until half way through the third. Did anyone notice if Chatham started playing all 4 lines or mixed up the powerplay or even tried changing some line combinations to shake things up? Hard to tell who was playing as I didn’t hear some names hardly mentioned at all.
How did King and Michaud do? I’ve heard they are quite happy with their new team.
Back to the drawing board coach. Time for a new playbook. Now is the time to find out if you’ve got a team, not in the first round of the playoffs.

King and Michaud are 2 great young men that wear their hearts on their sleeves, being sent to leamington was a
blessing in disguise for them. Good coaches would never want to part from players like that!

We aren't in the dressing rooms and aren't privy as to why player decisions are made - so I wouldn't be quick to judge coaching unless you are sure why player moves are made....just sayn

Familiar with the coach and how he treats the people around him on and off the ice! He's young and is learning I am sure!

Leamington winners - game and roster !!
So .... coaches corner:
-shorten shifts ——> no one has that much stamina except an Ethopian marathoner -
- defence - do your job & move the puck ——> there are lots of players who supposedly can get goals. (Okay maybe I take that one back - they aren’t scoring - but really do your job - guard the puck, move it - send it forward - take your cape off - you won’t be the hero - but you might be if you don’t let the offence in)
-Apparently vets are paid for their efforts but are they earning it ??? Let’s get back to novice hockey - $5 a goal. I wonder if the payment agreement would change their effort. I’d even buy them a slush.
Let’s get back to basics ——
