That said, it sounds like your personally connected, which is never a good thing for unbiased observations.
1st part.[Agreed!] But London made the right moves the 2nd year. Last season for Erie should have been a wake up call, this season should be a lot better, it's no better if not worse in some areas.
2nd part.[Biased or unbiased/personally connected or totally removed is not the issue here. The entire organization is a damn mess, on ice product should be better this year, the GM should have retired and or sold this team. Now more than before this team is a joke throughout the entire CHL community. To be associated with them would be tiresome and very frustrating; I am sure there are a lot of good people involved that have their hands tied back because of SB and are powerless to make the changes that should have been made before Ftorek was released. RF is a good man and didn't deserve to be treated the way he did. PS is the real issue on this management team but I guess the Oshawa ties are strong.]
