Any opinions on the new rules the WHL has endorsed? i find this one interesting(source tsn.ca) "The WHL also adopted a new regulation which will ensure clubs participating in the championship series will travel by air if the distance between the two clubs requires it." I'm wondering if this had anything to do with Brandon bussing to Kelowna for game one, then coming out absolutely flat
I would guess that's exactly what the flight thing is all about. Say Portland and Brandon play in the finals...that's at least a 1,000 mile drive, now factor in that travelling to the already compacted schedule and things could get nasty. The league can spare some loose change and fly these guys around, I mean some of them are only 16 years old.
