Multiple choice....

A) Replacement for Jones
B) Signing of Ryan Moore
C) Signing of Daniel Miller
D) Reduction in Season Ticket prices
E) New exit being built from parking lot.
F) Boughner buying out Rychel's share of the Spits.

I could go on and on but a player signing from the U.S. most likely.....

Timing is very interesting since the day later they're making the Mem Cup Hosting presentation to the selection committee.

Probably just Ryan Moore has decided to come to play for the Spits afterall, given how not a week ago the Star reported that he might not come here.

Is it too late to drop the hosting dreams and get the $150K charge back?

Maybe it's to announce the contract extension of Bob Jones.
I am guessing it could be any of the above, Moore being signed lower odds since he hasn't said anything on twitter.

Rychel being bought out by Boughner is interesting as there was rumors about that - but that would probably happen after the NHL draft and wouldn't happen before the Mem Cup bid unless Rychel was going to be the fall guy for the sanctions - but I can't see that happening either.

G) Full disclosure of people involved in the sanctions and an explanation of what really happened.

Maybe leaving Cogeco and putting the band back together on a new broadcast home?

Don't get me started again on how bad the TV crew from Cogeco was this year.
however.... with 2.5 min remaining in the season one announcer chooses to discuss his grandmother with the other guy on air....really. She's probably a great person but.....

BRING BACK KELSO & CREW

It's more than likely the signing of one of our US holdouts from a past years draft... of which Legend eluded to a few weeks back.

Schmaltz?

Schmaltz starts the USHL playoffs on Wed so I doubt much would happen on that front, would happy to be proven wrong. Allen is still playing with USA at under 18, same goes for Butcher. I hope it's a big time signing but sometimes these big press conferences don't have a lot of news but a day before they make their Memorial Cup presentation maybe it's designed to boost the hopes.

Couple secret members coming with the Spits that will help boost their bid.

Probably Eddie Francis. Maybe the presser tomorrow is upgrades to the WFCU - expanding the seating, more suites etc.

Or a former London player who's going to admit he was paid under the table

“With the way the Western Conference will be next year, I think we’re in the top three or four teams in the conference as we sit without filling any holes,” Boughner said.

If he uses this line at the host selection meeting how will the selection committee members stifle their laughter?

Rychel|Ho-Sang|Vail
Giftopoulis|Moore|Marchese
Johnson|Luchuk|Verbeek
Studnicka|Bilcke

Sieloff-Koekoek
Ebert-Murphy
Sanvido-Bateman
Brown-Murray

Pavelka
DeKort

Need a couple home runs with the imports (Goalie and top line scorer) and lure over a top American kid (Top six scorer) - only the latter we could do by Wednesday.

Not to derail.

I realize the Knights didn't exactly win everything in 11, but they still made the playoffs. Windsor didn't.

All I got.

You're probably correct Libbs......Legend has been conspicuously absent during the conversations here during the last few days but I bet he'll come out of the woodwork after the announcement.......Baughman perhaps... not sure if he's already slotted in somewhere...

A couple days too early to be celebrating 4/20 there Bob!

A HUGE nothingburger if it's Ryan Moore. But given how Rychel and the Star were selling the idea that he was a flyer and might not come over - obviously the Spits are trying to sell him as a big get.
