    I want to hate Chase Priskie given how he gave us the bird after college. But i am getting over it. He has been very solid for Bears.

    If TVR is out for a bit, I could see Priskie getting a call up (over Iorio). Similar to giving Lapierre a reward with couple of games.

    Is it strange that Alexander Suzdalev has not played a game this season?

      Very puzzling. If he can’t make the roster in Hershey, why not the ECHL or juniors? He could even be loaned out to a different AHL team. No action and no word on him at all is extremely odd.
