    Very happy for Chaz... he's been nearly the only bright spot on the squad for a while. He's my 3-year-old's favorite player, too!
    Thi's i's my new prote'st again'st apo'strohpe abu'se.
    I figure if you can't beat them, join them.
    Ju'st u'se an apo'strophe before every letter 's in every 'single word. Maybe 'some of the'se fool's will realize how 'stupid that i's.

    I just looked at the transactions for the Reign for this season. There are hardly any call-ups. Tell me, what's that like? Is it as nice as it sounds? (We can only dream of a transaction list like that here in Reading)

    Really hasn't been anyone to call up. No players assigned, so no call ups except a few on temporary basis (tryout contracts) when they needed to plug a hole.

    That's been one of the problems, no real future talent in Ontario and yet they have one of the most expensive rosters in the ECHL (the big clubs pay part of the salary for assigned players).

    A quota for players assigned by the Kings, a second affiliation and/or more players under AHL contracts is what the Reign have requested.

    We get those fill in a hole call-ups all the time, and to a bunch of different teams. It really sucks to see a guy the team could really use here sitting in the stands for an AHL team. Unfortunately, the Royals are the call up whores of the ECHL.

    At least you have players talented enough to be called up. Ontario has Johnson and..... ok Johnson.

    Well, the Royals use their call-up history to recruit players to come here. Yes, it means we get talented players, but it also means we don't get to keep them very long. Sometimes it backfires and you get guys who think they're too good to be here and just want to coast until they can move up. Karl Taylor's been in both situations now, wonder which one he prefers?
    Here's this season transaction list. I lost track but I think there are at least 10 teams taking from us here.

    It's not even a question of talent as it is holding a space. We had a lot of callups even in 09, when I think we barely cracked 50 points for the whole season. I think the main issue for Ontario is distance. You just aren't close to any AHL market, so an AHL team that needs a player isn't going to take one of your guys. Reading on the other hand is within a few hour drive of half the AHL cities. And with our willingness to allow callups, who you gonna call?

    The really annoying part is when an AHL takes a player from Reading and not from their own affiliate, and we happen to be playing that affiliate within a few days. Off the top of my head, we've had players called up to
    Toronto
    Providence
    Bridgeport
    Worcester
    Portland
    Hershey
    Binghamton
    Lake Erie
    Rochester
    Manitoba
    Rockford
    Peoria
