The Rampage efforts in their 4-1 win Saturday night did more to cloud the roster picture than clear it up. Some players, like camp standout Brad Schell, who is trying to make the squad as a free agent walk on, are really making Greg Ireland and Ray Edwards stand up and take notice.
Schell scored a goal and an assist Saturday night after scoring a goal in Friday's shootout loss in Houston. Schell has limited AHL experience with the Chicago Wolves, but once scored 110 points in a season with Gwinnett (ECHL).
Another strong performance came from Derek Nesbitt, who we saw last season play with Rockford. Nesbitt seemed to have a terminal case of "Spina" disease, constantly flying up and down the wing, causing a Houston defender to garner a hooking penalty.
It doesn't say if they were on the same line, but it would only help them if they were, since they played together with the Gladiators. I have a feeling this may finally be Schell's year to stick in the AHL.
