Chicago GM scoutting Australians?

In a weird and unprecedanted move the Hawks GM Dryden Lewis has decided to scout some Australian prospects. "There has to be someone of some use down there. They can't all be blokes and beer swillers. There has to be one person in the country who could be considered a project and hopefully I'll score a few times while I'm down there...I mean hopefully the player will be able to score a few goals in the future. We'll be scouting mainly in Melbourne and then move onto Sydney and Brisbane for a couple of day s. Brisbane should be fun as its close to the Gold Coast. I'll also take in the Australian Grand Prix where we'll have some grid girls scouting for potential players. Overall this looks like it will be a fun trip but definately a long and costly one as I'll be there from March 1 - 28. Once again I'll still be able to remain in touch as I'll have my laptop with me and should be able to maintain Hawks business from the other side of the world", said GM Lewis.

You must have seen a doco about genetic engineering in Australia then. We are trying to breed an inter-mammal species with our females down under.

Or you must have been drunk looking at a show from Australia and thought the kangaroo that Steve Irwin was trying to interview was the most good beautiful looking Sheila your ever saw.

All the talent is out here in perth Dry. all 1 of us

Ok, i'm officially retired due to injury, and have been for a few years, but I could still probably school most of the guys playing in the national league (you ready for this....all 3 teams!....or has it expanded to 4 this year?) so that's not a good sign.

got a young kid or two that are supposed to be pretty solid, but unless you've got connections to the Wheeling Nailers or another ECHL club, I wouldn't start worried about recruiting...and even then its dubious

What was that saying from Mighty Ducks I, the movie, "You are not a has-been. You are a never-was"

As for Australian prospects, check a few of the midget leagues in Canada. I hear there is one or two there that was quite good. I will make a bold prediction, Australia to be promoted at the next 20's WJC.
