Has anyone ever released their bid video before? Not sure the league is going to like this...they don't seem to be big fans of transparency...probably means Barrie will never get the Memorial Cup now...

Kitchener released theirs in 2008. I don't think it's a big deal. Hopefully not, anyway.

I think we can put the questions and debate of why they didn't win the bid to bed after watching the video.

London has everything you could want in a host city. ya, they hosted 9 years ago but London makes money and the Hunter brothers will make moves to stack the team even more than it already is and dominate.

Every team - yes EVERY team - who is selected to host makes moves to improve their team. Believe it or not, the Hunters aren't alone.

Guess what else? There are other teams in the league - most, actually, who make money! No, really! I wouldn't joke about that.

Question.....How many London Knights fans takes to screw in a light bulb?

Answer: One, he just holds it and lets the world revolve around him/her!

I was going to go with David Branch screws it in for them and then declares that Dale Hunter invented the lightbulb.

They still will have Chris Tierney as a third line centre, who would be the top centre for the Colts this year. Guys like the Ruperts will still be second or third line guys, the defense will remain strong despite the loss of Harrington, they will still have two first round NHL picks on the back end with Zadarov and Maatta, plus others who will fill roles. They had the best roster this year, and have the most returning players. Griffith and Broadhurst will hurt, but they have the guys internally who can fill those roles. As of now (assuming that Broadhurst and Griffith are gone) they only have 1 OA spot spoken for. The selection committee doesn't look at it, but with the picks that they have and the 95's-96's that they could move, they could be outright scary.

Add in all the depth that they have in Jr A with guys like Santino Centorame, John DiLorenzo, Owen McDonald in Jr B. They are very, very deep.
I think Griffith and Broadhurst will be the returning OA's. Harrington and Maatta could both go to the Penguins AHL team if neither makes the big club. Kyle Platzer will get more ice-time and he will light it up. Miles Liberti will develop into a solid defender who may switch between forward and defence. Remi Elie will play a bigger role as well in a checking role but still putting points up. Jacob Jammes won't get any time and will be a movable piece, so will Corey Pawley. I can see some other guys being traded as well: Josh Anderson, Brett Welychka, Owen MacDonald and Chris Tierney

Wishful thinking re Griffith and Broadhurst,as mentioned earlier in another post Maata cant go to the AHL its Pitt or London,and despite Pitt lousy D I doubt Maata makes it this year

You don't find many hidden-away beach towns like this anymore.

Knights77, sure, there's tons to do IN London, but half the fun is finding stuff to do in the area.
Not to mention you now have to pay for parking at the beach in PS. Even motorcycles have to pay when you park on the concrete pad beside GTs.

Speaking of paying for parking...

I was out in Western MI last month for a concert. Before the show (at a casino), I thought "I'm going to head out to the beach, see what it's like." That is, until they wanted $10 for parking. I laughed and drove off. I was going to be there 10-minutes...not paying $10. I went back after the show, parking was free after 8pm.

I got my season seat ( no garauntee I won't be moved but chances are real good I get my seat)

I also got 2 other seats ( location wont be releasedd until sept)

All my tics were about 600 bucks.

I'm not sure if the club seating is a bit more like the reg season or not. ( club seats- lower level, across from benches blue line to blue line basically)

SECONDED!

That arena-and I've been in about half the active arenas in the OHL-is the WORST I've been in. It's almost like playing a hockey game in a big box store(i.e. Walmart, etc.). The side scoreboards hurt your eyes, the PA announcer is reeking of lameness, etc. The only saving grace that place has is its team store. Peter Karmanos should have built a better puck palace than what he has now.

Ticketing information can be found here, as quoted in the London paper: http://www.juniorhockeyleague.net/memorial-cup-2014

There is info on the waiting list for tickets too.

Is the Memorial Cup like the playoffs where they reserve tickets for fans of the visiting teams? That is to say should the Olympiques make the Memorial Cup, would I be able to buy tickets then, or would I be out of luck? I'm sure I'm not the only one who doesn't want to go all the way to London to watch the Armada or somebody hideous like that...

I think teams are given tickets, but I'm not 100% sure.
