Kerr in his agreement before buying the team should've made it on the condition that he gets a huge advertising billboard in downtown and gets to run a shuttle bus to the arena around game time.

Anybody notice that there are 8 93's on this team. Percy, DeMelo, Teichmann, Diodati, Kontos, Rasmussen, Harvey and Foy. What is Boyd going to do next year when he can only have 3? He's going to have to do something this year to set himself up for next?
when the nhl kicks back up next year percy and demelo in ahl, there goes 2. i cant see them keeping teichmann so he might go to school or onto another team. that leaves 5 guys. id keep diodati and kontos as they are the most capable and have the other 3 battle in camp for the last spot or maybe trade some for late round picks.

Percy, Demelo, Rasmussen and possibly Teichman will be traded.

They will keep Foy, Kontos and Diodati.

Boydy will make many trades at Xmas and Trade deadline, depending on how team is doing. Just as he did last year.

Problem is that Boydy wont be back next year as new owner will not want to pay reasonable money to keep him on as Coach and GM. That might affect Boydy's attitude toward the future team????

Yeah I used to laugh at this too when I moved to Mississauga and people mentioned downtown. They're referring of course to Sq One and Playdium and that central bus terminal. It is actually fairly busy and becoming a bit more important now that Sheridan College is there plus a bunch of business buildings and condos. The point is though that there's a lot of people go there for recreation and it sees a lot of traffic plus is accessible with buses going there from any corner of the city plus a Go Bus terminal which connects to Toronto so it would've meant much bigger crowds. It's not as much that as the obscure location of the Hershey Centre. If it was located along that Queen Street strip in Streetsville it would've gotten bigger crowds lol. Bunch of shops to eat at around there and hockey's popular in Streestsville.

Anyways, I read that Kerr only committed to the Steelheads in Mississauga for 3 years. I find this sad, he says he eventually wants to get attendance up to 4K but unless this team becomes a contender again, this process will take more than 3 yrs so hopefully he's patient.

Brampton may end up moving to North Bay at the end of this season which might possibly help Mississauga in their quest for attendance.

Unfortunately, that is reality. Demelo and Percy will not be back next year, and will be in AHL.

Teichman and Rasmussen might fetch some draft picks.

They have no choice. They are in major rebuilding mode, especially after Cameron sold the farm for the Mem Cup run.

First off I'm the guy who made those signs... hope you like em and yes I'd still be there if they traded those guys but I feel the only way it's got a shot at working is if either Brampton or missy moves and the two fan bases support one team. Personally I wouldn't care what you called the team, which city had its name on it or which roster you kept but it would have to be done out of Hershey I am just not a fan of the Powerade centre.

One correction to the article is that Spencer Martin is on the 'B' list not the 'C'. I think although these players are not on NHL CS if they play Adam Bateman is a player to watch for the Spits and Teskey for the Steelheads. I also agree I think DeKort may just get the start in this one.

It's unfortunate that you feel that without Percy, Brace or DeMelo that there would be no attendance. I honestly don't know what people see in Percy (don't get me wrong, he's good, but he's no Dougy Hamilton and Dougy doesn't have a life size cut-out).

On another note, Boyd will have to trade one or all of them in order to be able to get something in return. Maybe he can trade them for something that catches your interest and keeps you coming!

Yup...Percy is no Dougie Hamilton. He's Stuart Percy. They are two different players. Hamilton has more offensive upside and better size, but Percy, IMO, is better all-round and is unflappable. I've seen two occasions where Hamilton hasn't stepped to the plate. He was pretty much invisible two years ago in the Eastern Final between the Majors and IceDogs, and last year in the OHL Finals he had a good first game then was irrelevant. A pick of his stature needs to be better in those types of situations.

Percy is more consistent, if less flashy, and is not intimidated by pressure. The concern at this point is that last year's injuries do not become a long term liability.

The two are not comparable players, IMO. Percy is more in the mold of a Matt Finn...displays leadership and is solid both ways.

Agreed, they pay two different styles of hockey, but we'll have to agree to disagree on who will be the better player over time and the definition of leadership.

I never actually stated which one I felt would be the better player over time. I was just commenting on the type of player they are now and why perhaps Hamilton was considered a better prospect in their draft year.

I feel they both have things they need to work on before they have any success long term.

The team is having a design a mask contest but it's for kids who are in a Mississauga school I think so you'd have to get your sibling or kid to do it:

Also can someone check the fan shop to see if they have hockey cards this season? Please?

Clint Windsor in Saginaw might be available. He was rumoured to be on the move before the season started.

They definitely need a starting goalie, no idea who they are looking at. Frankie P, Clint Windsor, maybe Taylor Edwards or bringing up one of their draftees for the time being.

Steelheads got Clint Windsor from Saginaw for a 2014 5th rounder and the rights to Kevin Irwin (93 birthyear and playing in the USHL)
