I was scared at first when I saw surgery for Henrique but its just his left thumb. What else can go wrong for Albany at this point?

Whatever, it just opens up a spot for another guy - trouble is, it's hard to imagine Henrique being ready for the season when it does start.

All things considered, why does Albany suck this badly?

A crappy PP, lack of scoring, coaching and some bad luck

More like "IF it does start."

This team has no forward depth. It shows with Albany's struggles to consistently score goals. Losing anyone projected to play in the top 2 lines with the big club is a gigantic loss should the season start soon.

Albany has plenty of forward depth - note that I said Albany and not NJ. Part of the problem is that shots aren't falling. The forwards alone are shooting 8.8% as a team. Well, that's around the average shooting percentage for forwards and defensemen in the AHL. So it's no wonder that they're not scoring.

Sucks to see Henrique smitten by the Curse of Jacob Josefson.

With Henrique's injury, Id like to see Butler paired with Josefson. I think JJ's vision and playmaking ability could really get Butler going.

Josefson has turned a career 2 S/G player into 3 S/G player...Too bad Anderson can't finish

I bet a lot of this is usage, aren't they putting Anderson on the point on the PP?

At the Titans game. Wedge not starting, but Clermont is in net for Elmira. Would have been awesome to watch our prospects square off.

Clermont stopped 14 of 17 in the 1st.

Sounds like Kinkaid had a good night, 44 saves, 3-2 win.

He had a Cujo type good night, he creates so many problems by his piss poor positioning. Any time he moves side to side he ends up falling or moving past his angle. Without some serious coaching he has very little NHL potential. Then again, Sean Burke turned a similar goaltender into Mike Smith.

Josefson is clearly quicker with his first stride this season. His skating is pretty much what Parise's was as a winger and plenty good for a center. He is shooting quite a bit more, he shot looks crisp as well. He won't beat goaltender from outside but he should convert on more goals in the high slot.

Tedenby didn't play terrible from an offensive perspective but he is still terrible on the cycle, weak in the corners and poor in his own end. Unless he makes himself effective in the offensive zone on the rush he isn't going to be a good player.

Larsson looks about same as last year but at this level he looks so much better. He seems to be making decisions a little quicker on the blueline.

Gelinas had a terrible time with his breakout tonight, he didn't look at that good.

MacPherson is terrible.

Pesonen had a good game as well, he was hard on the forecheck, used his speed well and kept the puck down low.
