He would certainly get a lot of playing time with a lot of the offense graduating/heading to the pro's next year .... Did Basil McCrae play with Dale Hunter in the NHL by any chance? Whatever connection works would be great but as was mentioned Phil McCrae seems to be
a top 5 -10 player ... Stranger things have happened though ....
I am pretty sure that Basil (former Knight) is a part owner in the team. That's a pretty good couple of connections right there

The Kane - Montgomery rumours are interesting. But as yet they are rumours. Kane has been to visit a few times though including Friday night.
