  1. Knott, Beach, Runsveldt, McNeill. Power forwards/big centers not easy to draft. Hoping we finally got a stud in KD (wow, KD has a bit of a ring – could be a nickname in that).

  2. Here’s hoping Entwistle pans out. His early stats are OK but not sure of his role in Rockford?
    Other than hopefully Dach, a 3rd pick, the line of bigger players (Knott, Hayden, Bondra, Starrett) not panning out is long. Hayes didn’t sign.

  3. With the lack of creativity in NHL rooms on nicknames… You know it’s going to be lame and stupid where they just and an er… Dockers.

  4. From You Tube footage it looks at least like Cramarossa can fight well. There is old footage of him beating up Tom Wilson back in Juniors.
