Colin would play this season in Everett and would do what he always does,lead the team to the post season.
The other player in the deal is an interesting prospect. Joel Dalgarno is a left handed scorer that can play at this level. He had a good Nike Shoes Casual 2017
Now we can get into semantics of this quality for quantity thing, but bottom line is Toronto got the best player in the deal. He makes players around him better. While gifted players, the same cannot be said about the three going the other way.
I had the pleasure of coaching Lewis Ratcliff in Calgary, and he is a physical specimen that can fire the ball. To be sure, he'd be a guy I would have on Nike Shoes Outlet my team and a guy that I wanted to go after last year, but as a complement to Doyle. Lewis isn't the leader Colin is, and isn't going to raise the level of play of his teammates.
Former NLL head assistant coach, personel director, scout and NLL Insider '09 post season contributor, Jeff Dowling joins NLL Insider in 2010 on a more regular basis, today shaking out this week's blockbuster trade between the Toronto Rock, and his former team, the Washington Stealth. Look for more opinions and analysis from Dowling throughout this year's NLL season.
After Calgary won the championship in 2004, they moved Rob Kirkby, one of the top defensive players in the game for three players. While these 3 players were all good players, they were not Rob Kirkby caliber.
summer out west with 46 points in ten games. The thing that needs to be considered here is that this trade is not just a three for one deal. Consider this, Ratcliff takes Doyle's spot, Codron sits on shelf for a while and then takes a spot from the D, and where does Dalgarno fit in? The Stealth already had a great offense. Only Buffalo and Calgary scored more. The Stealth power play was second best.
For what it's worth, I concur with Tutka's proclamation that Garrett Billings has a big year this year. I'll go so far as to say that he is my pick for Rookie of the Year. All the kid does is score and now he gets to play with a feeder that will find him.
Swap Doyle for Ratcliff and add Luke Wiles, Peter Morgan and Joel Dalgarno to the mix. Even if they keep all the lefties, who plays? Does Tom Johnson lose his spot because Dalgarno came over in the Doyle deal? Last summer TJ had 40 points in 13 games. A few less than Dalgarno in a few more games, but the big thing with TJ is that he is a five on five guy. TJ had 37 five on five points to Dalgarno's 30. If not TJ, then who? Ratcliff is the new star, Cam Sedgwick is a pro in every sense of the word and a team leader, and Peter Morgan gives the Stealth some dearly needed size. It'll be interesting to see how things shake out.
I once worked with a coach that felt that in this league, you cannot trade quality for quantity. Even if the quantity has some quality to it, there is so much talent available through the draft and free agency, you take the best player you can get and put others around him. Especially this season, with one less team in the league, there looks to be a lot of talented players that will start the season without a job.
Tyler Codron is great pickup if he comes back healthy. He was a force on the back end in Portland playing the opposite side to Brodie Merrill.
on the floor but in the locker room. After Johnny's departure (maybe an article for later!) it was all but certain that Colin would be moved. Johnny's former friend has a new vision of who the face of the Stealth franchise should be.
Another take on the Ratcliff deal
If John Mouradian were still running the show in Stealthland, Colin Doyle would still be captain. Nike Shoes Sports Price
I have coached some great leaders over the years, but Colin is on another level. Johnny always knew the value of Colin not just Nike Wedge Sneakers Black And Gold
