Thumbs Up to...

  • Yann Sauve for finally making his way to the thumbs up section. He was very impressive this week and was a +8 in the last three games.
  • Nathan Beaulieu for a great scrap on Sunday afternoon. Actually all four fights were very good and caused a terrific game on Sunday.
  • Gerard Gallant for naming fan favourite and local hero Mike Thomas team captain.
  • Sauve, Petersen, Hoffman, and Kirkpatrick for being named alternate captains.
  • all the fans who dressed up on Sunday for Halloween fun day. The on ice parade had to be four times larger than last season.
  • Fleaburn. Enough said.
  • the changing of the intro video. Much improved.
  • Irving for giving out free mini-sticks and noise makers. There was ridiculous amount of noise makers left over.
  • Karel St. Laurent and Marc-Antoine Gelinas for some very good goaltending this past week.

Thumbs Down to...

  • the Pillar's of Fame. After getting a good look at them this weekend, the order really makes no sense at all.
  • Olivier Dame-Malka for his cross-check on Galiev. Just an ugly incident that could have been a lot worse.
  • the scouts who run the CHL Top 10. Why they do not go by points alone I will never understand.
  • the Acadie-Bathurst Titan for turning the parking lot into a playground. At least they weren't drilling soccer balls at each other like the 2008 Rouyn-Noranda Huskies were in the parking lot.
  • the Saint John media for some very strange coverage. Neither the Telegraph-Journal or News 88.9 had any news on the three Sea Dogs going to the Subway Super Series until a few days after the announcement.
  • Titan nation. 1,003 at the K.C. Irving Regional Centre on a Thursday night isn't going to get it down.
