Typically when I interview people, I know basically how I'm going to use the information, and I follow through and use it that way. That didn't happen with my latest article, an installment of Off the Radar. I was trying to find an ECHL rookie worthy of a full feature, but was not enamored enough with any of them to feature them alone. So I decided to just write a bit about all three. Prospect potluck I guess.

I think Mike Berube has the best chance of the three though. He's got so much going for him, with just a small skating issue. If he really keys on that, with some help he can fix it.

Finley possessed

I couldn't talk to Joe Finley last night because I was busy filling in for the paper, but I took some photos at warmups. Several came out with just white in his eyes. I've never seen anyone blink this way on film. Kind of creepy.

He played well though. Quite a good skater for his size and he's hard to get around. Accurate shot from the point. I'll probably talk to him in a few weeks.

How you know when your team has sold out


The Kalamazoo Wings, in warm-ups. The helmet stickers went all game.
