Roenick: For sure. And again it’s all about bringing attention, too, to communities that many people don¡¯t even know exist yet.
Like when the Phoenix Coyotes came to Arizona in 1996. We built an entire hockey program. Eighteen years later, we¡¯ve produced the No. 1 draft pick in the NHL, Auston Matthews, who¡¯s now lighting up the National Hockey League.
So it¡¯s important to A) expose kids to hockey and B) to make sure the right people are in there to teach and build a program. And then it needs to be supported by the community. And Kraft Hockeyville is now doing it on a national scale. That¡¯s what¡¯s important. It¡¯s going to continue to create top prospects ¡ we set a record for most American-born players drafted in the first round last year.
Now … I’m not sure what they are on offense. For that matter, I think they aren’t all that sure, either, judging by the results so far.
Look, I understand that it’s hard to run against the Cardinals’ defense and shape the offensive game plan accordingly. However, San Diego Chargers running back Ryan Mathews got 12 carries in Week 1 against the Cardinals and New York Giants running back Rashad Jennings got 18 carries a week later.
Gore and Carlos Hyde had nine carries Sunday. No, not each — combined.

Are you effing kidding me?! They¡¯ll have to replace LBs Psalm Wooching (who¡¯s passing up the NFL to try a rugby career) and Joe Mathis (who was hurt for much of last season) and stud safety Budda Baker. But they¡¯ll get LB Azeem Victor, LB Keishawn Bierria, and DL Vita Vea back.

Washington returns 50 percent of its defensive production in total, and six starters on that side of the ball. The Huskies are right about 70th in both returning metrics.
Just in case you didn’t watch the game, understand that the 49ers were up 14-6 at halftime. They were still up 14-13 with less than five minutes left in the third quarter.
