Latest Stats for the Syracuse Crunch:
That's a wrap!
This week's observation:
DeAngelo has talent, anyone who watches him can see that. The problem isn't with his talent. The problem is that he isn't advancing his game from where he was when he first arrived in Syracuse this past fall. DeAngelo was expected to work on his discipline and his defensive zone play while also adjusting to the professional game and lifestyle. He's done neither, and, at the end of the day, just doesn't appear to know how to be a member of a team unit.
DeAngelo is second-to-last on the team in +/- with a -11. He is worst among the Crunch's defensemen. His 27 points are tied with Tye McGinn and Mike Blunden for 4th place on the team, but he isn't scoring at a pace that equals the goals that occur while he's on the ice. DeAngelo needs to realize that the only person holding him back right now is himself.
