07:47 AM ET 11.28 | This should make for an interesting Thanksgiving in South Carolina. After a complete meltdown by his struggling team, furious Walleye coach Nick Vitucci made his team go right back out on to the ice to go through a grueling skating session. ... The Stingrays pinned Toledo with an embarrassing 7-0 shutout before a crowd of 4,488 at the Huntington Center. After the two hour and 15 minute game, Vitucci was blunt about the assessment of his club and then immediately put his own skates on to drill his team in three, 20-minute sessions. "There was no effort," Vitucci said. "We have to look long and hard at this hockey club right now. They failed to play tonight any part of 60 minutes so we're going back out there right now."

After that bag skate, I bet nobody will have to tell these kids, "Eat your dinner!" today.

Well, it could've been worse. It could've been about the Schenectady Suckers or, the Oshkosh Carps.

Never even heard of this team, but I did hear Carolina let Rickety out of his contract! I bet the Islanders wished he had done that for them......hopefully this chapter is closed now with the fragile one!
