Good choice! Sorry about the Battalion.....but I've been a Guelph fan since the early 90's, and even though I've become a Bramptonite....nothing about the Battalion ever came close to swaying me.
That is the underlying failure of the Battalion, and the powerade center itself. There were a lot of hockey fans to be won over from Orangeville, Caledon, etc. The Sleeman center and powerade center are of equal distance from Orangeville. They should have built an arena somewhere north of Bovaird, not south of Steeles.....with one lane in and one lane out. It's not convenient even for people who live in Brampton....let alone the hockey fans who are willing to travel.
