Considering that 3 or 4 potential starters were out injured and didn't play against the Battery, it was a great performance.
Despite what the moaning minnies think earlier in the thread, I believe that we may have a stronger and deeper squad than last year.
Lets face it your so called veterans (Paul Chase,Ryan Miller,Kenny Bundy Brady Bryant & Phil Hufstader presumably) they just weren't able to deliver the same consistency last year, as they had in previous years.
To my mind the best 4 players weren't even available to come back. Maher,Bagley,Nylen, & Lancaster. They all now with DivOne teams.
Remaining veterans George Corrie, Junior Zarate, Derek Popovich & Chad Crandell are all likely to be pushed to get playing time unless first choice newcomers are injured.
And Hammerman to my mind Junior still needs to show a great deal more than he did against the Battery, despite the great assist!
