Scrums at the end of the game. Does a game mis. carry over to the next in the AHL? Chicago (rckf) was ugly at the end and the Griffins stood up to the BS.

I understand I think what Jimmy is doing. Mantha needs a REALLY strong dose of humble pie and then get put straight after that. 

Tear down and rebuild.


He has all the tools, but the biggest thing is his lack of toughness and determination to go after the puck. I saw why he had no minutes in game 5. He lost every puck battle that I saw. I think he really thought at the beginning of the year that he was going to walk up into Detroit with all the hype.

I've been watching Mantha all season. My fear is he ends up another Franson. Right now, he is not aggresive along the boards and looses most of those battles. He also is slow getting back on defense. What he does have is a great set of hands and some speed. It's just that the drive seems to be lacking.

The NHL really needs to go to the OT format that the AHL has. 3 on 3 is so much better than the shoot out.
