That is the case and I too am curious about the possible players attending. If that team is only players cut from Oilers camp than they will be incredibly shallow in depth.
Last I heard, there were about 50 guys at the roadrunners camp.
They were talking at the fan the other day that the Oilers should be able to sign a few players who would be more than willing to play in Toronto, seeing as there are lots of guys from the Southern Ontario aread in the various pro leagues.
There have only been 700 seasons tickets sold so far, but that isn't all that bad. This summer has been pretty rough in T.O. with the SARS scare (that was more blown out of proportion than anything), west nile scare, and the blackout. With things settling down, it should pick up. They also haven't released the event schedule yet, and once that happens, they should probably see a jump in luxury suite and club seat sales.
Does anybody have the list of players that are attending the roadrunners training camp? It doesn't say on their site and i can't find it anywhere so help is greatly appreciated.
I called the Roadrunners a few minutes ago and they sent me the camp list. However, I think it's just a roster list for an upcoming preseason game because it's only got 20 names on it. I've asked for a complete list and will let you know if/when I get one.
