Pats 6 v Raiders 4 thoughts

Some quick thoughts....

..... Matt Hewitt is a pretty decent netminder.... just needs to stay calm and keep doing what he's doing. I just wish he was 3 inches taller. Well deserving of the star honour last night.

..... Shayne Neigum looks like a mini-tank on the ice. I didn't look it up but I think he may have had a career game with 2 goals and an assist. Seems to hit like a ton of bricks. He reminds me a bit of Curtis Austring with a bit more bite.

..... Tanner Olstad is tiny! He honestly reminds me of Todd Davison in pretty much all facets I saw last night. He's gonna be a gooder for the Pats.

..... Nils Moser is a pretty big kid. Not huge but big and when he hits he looks as though he hits hard. He's not super fast but hits and hits and hits.

..... I can honestly say that no one had a "bad" game last night. Some guys just seemed to have a bad shift or two.

..... Blidstrand has been getting better game by game..... I just wish he wouldn't cough the puck up like he does. When he coughs the puck up it's usually in the net. He's getting better.

..... Bell had a good game.... but I have noticed one thing that really bothers me.... he seems to pinch and get caught up ice a lot. I know he's 17 and he's still learning and will get better and better.

..... The rest of the D played really well. Of the 4 goals that were allowed..... Hewitt would love to have one back (bad 5-hole goal) and PA's 4th goal was a beauty with the goalie pulled.

...... I really wish that the Pats would keep the lines together for more than a shift or 3. But I guess with all the changes chemistry needs to be found.

...... Stephenson needs more ice. Weal keep doing what you're doing. Reddin keep being fast creates a lot of open ice for your line mates. Rieder is becoming a fore checking machine. Jung is an impressive defensive player that put with the right players will become a top end two-way forward.

...... Is Muench in the ‘doghouse’? He has been a healthy scratch more often than not recently. How soon until he is done?

...... Is it worth keeping an import in Roznik to be a healthy scratch? He’s pretty talented but just doesn’t seem to have grasped the WHL game yet. I think he’s worth keeping but I don’t know if there is enough spots for him to get proper ice time.

That’s it for now.

I’m going to listen to the game tonight.

I've been trying to think about...

how to add more content to TheBlueliner but I'm not sure what I want to add here. I keep on saying to check back in the near future but I just never get back here. I have a couple of other things going on and I hope that I have more time to focus on things that I can put here. Seeing as Twitter is my main source I'll start embedding my tweets here. Earlier in the year, Rob Vanstone did a story on me for the Leader-Post which I'll share here: As far back as 41-year-old Kevin Shaw can remember, he has been fascinated with the @WHLPats — as evidenced by his extensive collection https://t.co/UD8JrxQSwG #WHL — Regina Leader-Post (@leaderpost) February 7, 2020 Some of my regular daily Tweets include Pats Alumni and their birthdays. I usually write a small biography on each player that had birthdays. July 11th's @WHLPats alumni birthdays...
