The obvious comment was about the sanctions against the Winterhawks for illegal recruiting. Which is the main reason most of the league hates them. Honestly that doesn't bother me that much as I know for a fact they are not the only team guilty of doing that. They were just caught that is the main difference.

In the past I always liked Portland I think it's just this core of players the past 3 or 4 years I can't stand.

As for Leipsic you hit the nail on the head. He isn't going to get the benefit of the doubt because he's cried wolf one too many times. The officials know his game and sometimes they ignore a few things if you catch my drift. And understandably so. It's too bad because he is a talented player and if he just focused on playing rather than all the other B.S. he'd be a lot better off, IMO.

They're losing their top 4 scorers once you throw Klarc Wilson into the mix.
Dont think they will lose Pochiro, he most likely wont stick in the AHL and wil be back as a 20 yr old.

MCnulty tho, if he comes back he could be a great offensive force from the back.

Kelowna is going to be the best team next year. Fairly confident by saying that.

I also expect good things from Giants, Thunderbirds, and Wheat Kings.

I underestimate the OKs this year after they lost a lot of their top talent in the offseason. I won't do the same thing next year.

As long as they have Laxdal they will be OK. I expect guys like Pollock and Eller to take the next step, Mayo should become a legit top pairing WHL defenseman, etc.

I don't think they'll be a 50 win team again but I could see them finishing comfortably in second behind the Hitmen in their division.

Pumped for tonight. Wearing the Stolarz (white jersey) tonight as kind of a welcome back for him. Look for me at my perch. (309A19) I love meeting fans from these boards...especially out of towners.

I'll be wearing a different London/CHL jersey every game...because I can
