I can see why the N.H.L. Scout would have Chris Truehl on his list as he just about won the game for Johnstown against PH on Sunday afternoon. Quite a few big saves he matched Milosek save for save.
John, but Truehl still lost and didn't get picked up by the Eagles.
Jim, you are right but Anthony Stolarz got cut by 2 teams last year before he made Corpus Christi and even though they Corpus Christi didnt make the playoffs Stolarz got drafted to the NHL by Philadelphia. So much for your logic. It doesnt change the fact that Truehl played a very good game and going by this article there is an NHL scout who likes him.
As a Port Huron fan, Truehl did play great and I tip my cap to him. I hope though that Milosek from Port Huron gets some respect for I feel the guy deserves it, he stepped in late last year and carried the team into and thru the playoffs and matched save for save with Truehl like John pointed out vs. Johnstown in the opening game and might I add with a defense that has some growing to do.
Well said gentlemen.
Randy, How do you think the Soo Eagles will do this year?
I think the Eagles will do well, better than some seem to expect. They have a good coach who is also a tireless general manager and the talent level and depth of the roster looks good to me. I am thinking a playoff spot in the North Division.
Nice to read your posts, Jim, and hope that you continue to post and participate.

Warm milk and cookies beats Steve's preferred breakfast of $1 tequila and hard-boiled eggs.
