Well tonight the Anaheim prospects managed to find another way to piss away another two points. They gave up three goals in 52 seconds (yes 52 seconds) to blow a 4-2 lead late in the third period and lose 5-4 to Rochester (who had lost 4 straight games).

All in all its been a really disappointing season in Syracuse. When Anaheim came to town they promised a physical team that would not be pushed around in its own barn. Instead we have a team that does not take the body, the players do not play 60 minutes, and they play with very little emotion/heart. The talent level in Syracuse is far below any other AHL team which is proven by the fact that they have the fewest goals for in the league.

I hope the Syvret trade is one of many because Palmieri is the only goal scoring threat in the lineup and he is 19 years old.

If it's any consolation, it isn't much better in Anaheim these days.

It was their third in 3 nights, and I wouldn't say that the talent level is lower than any other AHL team. Right now they just look like a young team in a new city that are still trying to sync up. There has been moments when we have seen what they are capable of and as soon as they can find a way to make that a consistent effort they will be fine. I don't care what talent level you are at, when you have a new home arena and new home town it takes a while to adjust. I am just happy to be able to see a part of the Ducks organization in person every home game. The success will come too, but they need the support from the fans to make it easier.

I think we need to give this team time to develop into a winner. All of the elements are there, it just isn't soup yet.

Hang in there fans!

The way you phrase this almost makes it seem like you are blaming the Ducks... Murray aside, I don't think that is fair.

Either way it's not fair when it's only 18 games into the season the first season as the affiliate.

yeah it is the first time a lot of the players on that roster have played together, and considering a few of them are going up and down from the Ducks main roster that will affect the time they have to gel. Be a bit more patient, im sure they will start winning games soon enough smile.gif

With all of the Ducks injuries, there has been a lot of players shuffling, and there is even more now with the trades. It creates a lot of instability and incongruity for the Crunch which makes it hard for them as a team, but that's business.
