Kincaid sent down, Frazee called up

47 posts in this topic

I think they probably want to give Kinkaid playing time.  If Hedberg sh!ts the bed again, my guess is that Kinkaid gets called up to start the next game.

I posted in the other thread that I didn't think Kinkaid looked all that great, but this is a little mystifying. Kid has been up here for a a couple weeks, if there's going to be another 3rd string start/replacement I think he should get the benefit of the doubt.

Can we by any chance send the entire team down and dress the Albany Devils for the next game? They'd probably get destroyed, but I'm sure it would be more entertaining to watch, at least.

lol this is the equivalent of Rex making McElroy inactive after he won a game while Sanchez continued to stink.

Does someone want to answer me why we signed both Moose and Marty to the same amount of years?? Kinda poor planning.  I would have thought we would have been as proactive as possible having someone under Marty learning from the best.  Instead we are scheduled for disaster when the contracts are up.. Anyone have any thoughts behind that manuver ??

I am sick to my stomach... they are on crazy pills right now..

 

Sick to your stomach? An undrafted 23-year-old rookie goaltender is not the answer to our problems. This move is inconsequential, Moose was slated to start on Thursday so what does it matter who is sitting on the bench as his backup?

 

Not to mention, Frazee has better numbers than Kinkaid this season in Albany, so I'm sure he would fare fine if he was forced into action on Thursday.

Because we have back to backs coming up this weekend and it stands to reason that whomever is sitting shotgun will get one of those games in.

Even so...why are people panicking about what third-string goalie is on the roster? Moose is going to play Thursday, and the team can figure out the plan for this weekend from there.

 

Kinkaid is younger than Frazee, so at this point he's a more realistic NHL prospect than Frazee, but don't forget that Frazee was once a highly regarded prospect, too. It doesn't make a difference which one of them is backing up.

 

Look at their numbers this year in Albany:

 

Frazee 2.33 GAA .920 save percentage

Kinkaid 2.69 GAA .905 save percentage

I am not panicking, just confused over the decisions being made.  Moose needs a break plain and simple.. Give it to him... Allow someone else in the net to give the team a positive thought process.  You can't disagree with me that moose is clearly shook right now and has 0 confidence..

and mcelroy proved to be as shakey as KinKaid. his second start was BRUTAL.  Marty where are you!

Oh, I totally agree. I'm a huge Moose fan, but there's no doubt that he is in a big slump right now. He's not the sole cause of this losing streak, but he's not the solution either. If I was Deboer, I would have started Kinkaid on Thursday to shake things up.

 

However, given that he already pegged Hedberg as the starter....it doesn't matter who is backing up.

Yea the whole team is just a nightmare.. We need to play a conference game and get fired up again.. That might light a fire under their asses..

True.  While it doesn't matter in the grand scheme of things, most people here (myself included) believe that Moose needs to sit on Thursday and are probably more upset about Moose getting the nod than they are about Kinkaid going down.  Plus, the kid came in last night and gave no reason to be sent down. 

 

I just don't get why they did this now.  Frazee had better numbers a week ago too, but Kinkaid got the call.  Nothing has changed since then so it seems to reason that Kinky should either still be here, or Frazee should have been called up from the beiginning.

Only cause the freaking line didn't play for him. Pete might be worried our team won't play for Kinkaid either.

As others noted, I wouldn't say panic, just confusion. Given that they brought Kinkaid up, I would have thought it would been a good gesture on the Devils part to give him the full start over someone else. He's been here for 4 or 5 games, gets in for 25 minutes, plays "decent" and then gets sent down? I'm sure he's going to have trouble understanding that for a seemingly meaningless switch.

Kinkaid said himself that he wasn't expecting any NHL minutes this year and that getting in last night was ahead of what he expected at his age. I don't think he's going to have problems understanding. He seems to understand his place and he'll probably use the experience in Albany.

As for Frazee, I've always liked him, but I'm pretty sure his chance is up. The call up may be a reward for how well he's played this year, including the last few days while kinkaid was in jersey.
