So the Oil Kings had their intersquad scrimmage last night. Team White won 6-3, lead by Curtis Lazar with a goal and two assists, and Brandon Baddock with two goals. Lane Bauer had two goals for Team Red.

Interesting that Edgars Kulda is at camp, and seeing as he hasn't signed a deal with the Coyotes yet it seems very possible that he'll be back. Not sure if Ibragimov came over to NA, if he has then it's likely that Eller would have to be moved/released.

Wow, that would be sick. However, I don't know how well a single game knockout format would go over. Maybe have league playoffs to whittle it down to 10 teams (3 from each league plus host) and have them play 3 game series from there? I get that the whole host concept isn't liked, but I still think it is necessary.

What I don't like about hockey as a general theme is that there is generally 2 playoff formats. 4 round/7 game playoffs or Round Robin with single elimination. CHL has both in the same year.

I always felt the first league to do a tournament such as march madness would win in terms of increased popularity.

I always thought the CIS made the most sense for this, however if you went to a 16 team playoff format in that league you would arguably see the exact same 16 teams year after year since the league doesn't have that many teams.

I have strong feelings in regards to the CHL and the AJHL, the development system and how players go through that system but they are way out there in terms of ideas so i won't go into it here.

I think in this case, change is good. Be different.
