Was in Brampton to watch the Gens yesterday. Oshawa dominated and really the final score s flattering to the Batalion. Their lone goal came after three straight penalties to Oshawa inside of two minutes.

Crummy arena too. Easy to see why they're moving. No video board, anywhere. And the PA announcer is impossible to understand with the crummy sound system. Also, basic things, like why don't the Batallion shoot at the side of the ice with actual fans? Instead, for 2/3 periods the home team is shooting at the side with a few empty bleachers and the Zambezi entrance.

OHL in Brampton was always going to be a touch sell, but they sure as hell didn't do themselves any favours with the in-arena experience.

Also, the mascot is disturbing as all hell. It's just a guy in army fatigues with a creepy deformed head.
