A Few Minutes With Brandon Rogers

I've been fascinated by the move of Brandon Rogers to the center position this season. Especially since Rogers has never played forward before in his life. So I spoke with Rogers about the move after Sunday's game, then I got some comments from Kevin Constantine.

You can find the story over at the mothership. So give it a read.

And let me just say that I think Rogers is one of the nicest guys on the team. He's not flashy. He just does his job. And maybe we need to find a reason to talk to him more often after games because he'll generally give us a good answer.

And Merry Christmas, everybody.

Agreed, very nice and did a 'splashy' calendar photo!

I think it is about time you start to realize other players on the team. i feel like you only talk about 5 players after every game and you forget to notice the 20 some others that play for the team as well. It is great that you are starting to acknowledge the other guys that work just as hard.

This is a perfectly valid comment, and I am glad anon brought this up.

I was just thinking about this the other day.

While DiSalvatore, Noreau, Khudobin, Daoust seem to contribute greatly on the ice (and are great talkers for that matter) we do need to broaden our proverbial horizons.

There are several players on this team who are virtually invisible when it comes to the stat sheet, but provide a valuable service at the AHL level.

And we value your feedback as well.

If there is someone you want to hear from, bring it up on the blog and we'll do a mini feature.

Thanks, and Merry Christmas.
