Senior hockey is still king here when you get away from St. John's. Senior hockey would probably still be at the top of the heap in St. John's if it was not for the Leafs. Once we had that, no junior would suffice.

I wonder if the people who wish the Q had have come back are a fair bit younger than my 45 years
No I am older.
