Woooooaaaaa.......
Endicott is still holding down a position on this roster because he has the size and skill to be a solid 3rd line center in this league.
He would be snatched up in waivers if they tried to send him down.
Endicott's high ankle sprain takes time to get 100%, but he is not lazy and he is not slow. He may not be an impact player, but he is a decent prospect who has a good upside.
Calling him names, may give you some self gratification, but it shows a lack of respect for the game and the players. When your willing to have a grown up discussion on Endicott, I would be more than happy to enlighten you on his potential upside.

Z - what the hell are you talking about?

Shane Endicott's high ankle sprain does not force him to make horrible decisions with/without the puck. It did not allow him to make mistake after mistake after mistake on the penalty-kill. It doesn't affect his ability to handle the puck like a grenade. It doesn't affect his ability to lose countless faceoffs.

He doesn't fight, he can't shoot, he can't pass, he's too slow, and makes too many bad decisions.

Shane Endicott will pass through waivers because no one wants a player with an empty skill set.

I can't believe I just read a positive Endicott report. Holy heck was that bad.


PS... I'm a little cranky with lack of sleep.

If Koltsov and Armstong were able to be waived without someone claiming them, chances are Endicott would too.

Me thinks that somebody forgot to use the all-important :lol icon....

Or at least I hope. Sure, Endo has ideal size for third-line center, but he's slow, plays soft, plays stupid, and doesn't have anywhere near enough skill to make up for those glaring deficiencies.

That is what I think of Endicott being worth keeping on the squad. I'd trade him for Talbot ANY DAY OF THE WEEK. His net worth is about the same as a toe nail clipping.

OK, I would LOVE to hear somebody explain to me how Endicott deserved a one-way deal this summer. I want to know why he was allowed to start his season/career comming off a high ankle sprain instead of sending him to the AHL for a reconditioning assignment. If he was sent down I missed it.

He has average acceleration, average balance, a decent wrist shot, poor shot accuracy, poor passing skill, very poor hockey sense, good size, poor at faceoffs (if he would at least win 51% I would back off alittle), he is obviously frail for a young player - I mean high ankle sprain? Pulled groin? I know guys who are 50 that skate harder and dont get hurt that much LOL - , questionable work habbits, poor along the boards, poor physical game....

The only great thing I can say about him is that he keeps his mouth shut.

He doesn't have a one-way contract to my knowledge. He is still waiver eligible though. The two are not mutually exclusive.

I bet players around the league will heave a huge sigh of relief the day the franchise moves out of this city of mean spirited, non-appreciative and bitter fans.
The brutal and classless Pittsburgh fans are likely the reason why so many top UFA's turned down lucrative contracts to play here this off season.

Yeah, because I'm sure Endicott hears that after games all the time. And if by some chance he reads message boards, I'm sure he takes them less seriously than you seem to.

Endicott has had a very forgettable season. There's no getting around that. He has not contributed a single thing to the team, whereas a guy like Talbot who has, is stuck behind him because of the franchise's seemingly inexplicable reluctance to expose him to waivers, even though they did waive Koltsov and Armstrong.

fata is twice the player Endo is and they waived him and are paying half his salary for the Craps.

How can you have any insight on sports fans in Pittsburgh when you're stuck in Harrisburg with your head up Ed Rendell's ass?

Yeah, it wasn't CP refusing to pay them or anything.


God, you make up so much stuff.

Are you serious?

Anyways, Endicott WAS good in the AHL last year, especially during the playoffs. But Bowser's description of an empty skill set is spot on of his NHL year, except for winning faceoffs in streaks.

I do think he has been bothered by the high ankle injury for most of the year, but it isn't an excuse for no hockey sense. He has done nothing worthy of keeping him on the roster, and by having him here they aren't icing the best team that they can.
