Very good point as they do seem to be a much different team than several games back.

I'm guessing whoever offers the best package, regardless of whether it's an Eastern or Western team. With Kingston not likely to make the playoffs this season, it's not like trading Spooner to an Eastern Conference team will come back to bite them in the butt come playoff time.

I do hope Kingston receives some sort of package that includes youngsters already playing in the OHL and who already look good. The Frontenacs' track record of drafting makes me leery of any sort of package that only involves draft picks going Kingston's way.

Nice editorial in the Whig recently:
Frontenacs deserve another chance

As a long-standing Kingston Frontenacs season ticket holder, I have suffered with the rest over the years and have heard all the excuses for their downfall and I must admit I have been frustrated and disappointed.

The new regime under Doug Gilmour has made it very clear they are in a true rebuilding stage and allowed us to set our expectations accordingly.

My observations tell me there are true efforts to improve and under coach Todd Gill the new level of effort can be seen.

In addition, changes at the arena are also evident with more efforts to provide better food and drink (new bars and food outlets) and I for one feel a different attitude on and off the ice.

Let's give them another chance.

Made it to the Saginaw Spirit game on Sunday - Spooner put on a clinic on controlling the play. nice to see this kid using his last year in the OHL to hone his skills and maximize his ice-time. well deserved OHL player of the week.

it's hard to identify forwards that really stand out as potential top liners for the years to come.
Dupuy looked good in my first look at him, i see he's a 94 birthdate, but hasn't put up many points yet. Beranek is another young kid who did some nice PKing yesterday.

the D are more impressive with a better crop of young guys. Steele is rounding out really well.

whatever happened to Conor Stokes? i know he was an over-ager, but i miss the entertainment he provided.

My memory might be acting up on me, but I believe Stokes got injured blocking a shot down where guys cringe to block a shot with, and hasn't been back since.

Or it might simply be a coincidence that he hasn't played yet since taking a shot to the family jewels.

Stokes is back. He didn't do anything last night in the 5-0 loss to the IceDogs, but scored twice tonight in a 6-5 win over Oshawa.

I see Gill was quoted in the Whig as saying that Friday may be Spooner's last game in Kingston, after that he heads off to Team Canada Camp, giving the team time to finalize a trade......

So how much does Spooner being diagnosed with Mono hurt his trade value?

I say very little. I would think there is a 95 coming back so the trade would have to wait until January to be completed. As I understand mono is approx a 6 week disease. So about 5 weeks until Jan 10th deadline. It does set back the team getting him a little bit but he is there for the playoffs and until then build chemistry with the new team. That is my 2 cents worth.

Mono recovery time can very pretty significantly I think. Let's hope for the best.

It's too bad he won't get a chance to play in the WJC. I was looking forwarding to watching him on a bigger stage with better calibre players.

Conor Stokes was given a 10-game suspension by the league for his illegal hit on the Majors' Foy the other night.

each of the new Fronts players has had a good start.

it's nice to see the team building to something with direction under Gilmour's management. seems like Gill is keeping them motivated as well.

the future is a lot brighter now than it has been in many years.

any chance someone could give me some insight into each of the new guys?

Kujawinski has good size, good shot, good passer and is good on face offs
Jenkins is fast and good defensively
Nevins loves to hit people(in his first game in Kingston he had about 7 hits)

The new guys seem to be paying instant dividends for Kingston. Kujawinksi and Jenkins are scoring at around a point per game clip, and Nevins is providing some physicality and chipping in the odd point, as well. Kujawinksi, in particular, looks like a keeper.

Ryan's a great kid , a hard worker and very skilled . He'll do well in Kingston . Word of advise though , don't take his dad to Verona if you meet him .

Frank and I played competitive fast pitch softball in Northern Ontario together many moons ago and had a couple of head to head contests with the Verona Merchants team that were very competitive and a tad intense , if you catch my drift . They were a great veteran team and very proud of their accomplishments and we were a bunch of arrogant younger players . They were great games and well played but we didn't like each other very much . They also made some negative comments about our team in the local paper thinking we wouldn't see them but I was going to Queens University at the time and happened to buy the paper that day . Let's just say that we respected them but didn't care for them much and I don't think Frank ever forgets a game we ever played , so he might not like it there . I may be wrong but I wouldn't take the chance . I miss those days though , good grief we had fun . I think Wayne Cashman's brother might have pitched for them .

I actually disagree with this. I don't think Stokes has had much of an impact this season, other than his illegal hits that have earned him suspensions. I'm surprised they didn't move him at the trade deadline. He doesn't strike me as a leader type. The fact the coaching staff removed the 'A' from his jersey suggests they think so too.

Kujawinski has impressed me. He looks like a veteran out there. He's got offensive skills, but the thing that impresses me more is how solid he is in all areas of the ice. He's money on the draws, too. Now Kingston just has to surround him with talent next year, otherwise he'll end up like Spooner as the only source of offense for the club.
