Wait..what?

Facility in Erie is better than Owen Sound? Well...I've watched a bunch of games in Owen Sound, and if you are looking for glitz and "new", then you'd better look elsewhere.

However...from a players' perspective, I would wager that there is no better building to play in than the Lum when the place is rocking for a big game. Players will take that kind of atmosphere, where the kids are rock stars off the ice and gods upon it, than any fancy-schmancy new or recently refurbished facility where not only do most of the people in the city not know who you are, but, depending on the neighborhood in Erie, you can find yourself knifed or shot if you aren't careful.

If, for ANY reason a player chose Erie for it's facility, city, fans, coaching, management, ownership, team success (or any other factor) over Owen Sound, then I would suggest that the player would not be "Harvard material" as far as the smarts required to be accepted into that particular Ivy League establishment...
