Yes, the more bullets in the chamber the better.

I too would have no problem if Nick Schneider or Mason McDonald surpassed either of Jon Gillies or Tyler Parsons.

Gillies has been hugely disappointing this year. I looked at it as a make or break year for him and so far it looks like he's breaking.

@AHLHeat
The Heat have added goalie Ryan Faragher on a PTO. Goalies Jon Gillies (day to day - lower body) and Tyler Parsons (week to week - upper body) are out.

Faragher has played very well for the Heat in the past.
But he's 28 and this is just a PTO.

A little sad to see that both Gillies and Parsons are injured again.

Schneider stopped 33 of 35 for the win, Heat win 4-2. He also picked up an assist!

Nice night for Lazar, 2 goals, 1 assist (one goal was shorthanded). Other goals from Gawdin and Phillips.

Happy to see Schneider did well tonight. He looked good for Stockton on an ATO a couple of years ago before tailing off after a few great games. Would love someone to grab the net down in Stockton the opportunity is there for all 4 goalies Flames have under contract in the minors.

Damn Lazar, three point game and banged-up nose...




He's doing everything he can to earn a call-up.

Great to see him doing well but 3 points (1 goal) 5v5 in 14 games isn't that great.

Let him play out the year in the AHL, build his confidence and revamp his game.

7 PP points is great for a guy trying to re-develop his game but it doesn't really matter when he's not going to be a PP guy up here.

Matthew Phillips has 5 points in his last 5 games after starting the season real slow.

Heat are tied 1-1 with Tucson right now. Schneider in net, Phillips with the goal.

Heat win! Three in a row, Schneider in net for all three.

A lot of people were saying the Flames should go and get Schneider to be the starting goalie this year, but I don't think any of them meant Nick.

1.12 GAA and a 0.962 SV% in the AHL so far through 161 minutes of action.

Mason McDonald outplayed Schneider in the ECHL
Schneider outplayed Gillies in the AHL

oh, goalies. You never cease to make zero sense.

Parsons is still the best of the bunch though, I have zero doubt on that one.

Graovac has impressed me this year.


I watch him and I think, if he'd teach himself to fight he could carve out a career as an NHL 4th liner easily. He's got the skillset to be a good 4th liner but he's just not physical enough for his size and what his NHL role would be and he's never going to be given a top 6 opportunity in the show.


Probably ends up tearing it up somewhere in europe eventually.
