I do not recall once throughout this season his talking to the team on the bench.
He did make a remarkable stop last night but that does not account for the remainder of his screw-up’s continually.

I do expect to put my jersey away after this evening along with all my Salmon King ones.
Oh well, I wasn't even expecting us to make the playoffs this year, so I'm happy with the team and how they did in their 1st year, they're just gunna get better next year.

Well, the seasons over fellas.

Better start looking at next year. Rintoul is gone, Soudek is gone. 3 of Crooks, Habscheid, Forsyth, Stahl and Hamilton are staying.
Lineup is looking like this.

Jones/Crooks - Walker - Nelson/Magee
Crooks/Jones - Hodges - Magee/Nelson
Conroy/Traber - Crunk - Traber/Carroll
** - Harrison - Carroll/Conroy
**/**

* = One of the following - Pick in this year's import draft, Lukas Kralik (if he comes back), Justin Sprgaud, Matt Bissett, Reid Halabi, Clay Spencer

I'm not sure on Kralik's return next season, I don't he produced that much and really liked it here. He was a healthy scratch most of the games.

Stahl - Fransoo
Kanzig - Pilton
Cote - Zggragen
Hicketts/Clowes/Popoff

Hamilton
Rathjen/Volrath

I'd guess Crooks, Stahl and Hamilton will stay. I think Hodges will take 1st line Center over Walker next year, just my opinion.

Also, I'd like to congratulate the Victoria Royals Organization for a successful 1st season, hoping for many more to come.

So long Soudek, Royals pack up and go

By Travis Paterson - Victoria News
Published: March 29, 2012 3:00 PM
Updated: March 29, 2012 3:53 PM

As the curtain fell on the Victoria Royals first season in the WHL on Wednesday (March 29), it was also the last time Robin Soudek would take off his skates as a Western Hockey League player.

The 21-year-old is one of two graduating players from Royals, with Hayden Rintoul being the other.

Dejected Royals say their goodbyes

Other than for the team that goes all the way to the title, locker clearout is the saddest day in sports.

“I’ve been through a few of these and it still sucks,” said defenceman Tyler Stahl, as the Victoria Royals players moved their gear out of Save-on-Foods Memorial Centre on Thursday and dispersed their separate ways.

The seventh-seed Royals were swept 4-0 by the second-seed Kamloops Blazers the night before in the WHL Western Conference opening-round playoff series.

Sailor just a reminder to not post full articles as it is copyright if you do, just post a link to the article and quote the main part(s). You could get the posts deleted or even get a warning or infraction. So remember to use [QUOTE] tags for your article posts and dont post the whole thing. Just thought I'd give you a heads up.

I hate to admit it but I think the Royals need a makeover.

Rintoul leaving is a terrific start. Good kid, just not the best hockey player in the world.

I don't see why nobody likes him.. he was arguably our best defenseman and had 50+ points this year.

He handles the puck as if it was a hot potato. I've never seen a player make so many bad passes in one game.

But like I said, great kid. He has leadership and he's been very polite everytime I've talked to him/interviewed him.

Maybe it is the -40 while he was on the ice. Maybe it was the continous mistakes of staying on the ice. Does not matter that he had 51 points. with the big negative against him.
Does not matter that he sat on the bench and said nothing to his fellow players to get them going.
He is supposed to be a leader on and off the ice.
Enough said.
There is a new Captain in town next season and a new team.

Not that I'm for hating on Rintoul or anything, didn't watch him on the ice much, but he DID have the worst +/- in the LEAGUE. That says something. http://www.whl.ca/stats/show/type/re...e/10/first/720

that's what happens when you have to play teams' top lines as a Royals defenceman. Our defense was the worst in the league, fitting.

Royals hope to gain from this season's pain 03 Mar 12

Don’t look for a stand-pat roster just because the Victoria Royals return all but two graduating 20-year-old players for the 2012-13 Western Hockey League season.

“The biggest thing you don’t want is to have complacency set in,” warned GM and head coach Marc Habscheid.

“There is nobody automatic on the team. Our list [each WHL team can protect 50 players] is such that we have good players coming in . . . including 21 forwards for 13 spots.”

Inconsistency in goal was a problem for Victoria. With Royals-protected Coleman Vollrath showing well this season with the Calgary Buffaloes of the Alberta Midget Hockey League, look for him to potentially step up to the WHL level next season in Victoria as a 17-year-old.

After the playoffs are over, this thread will probably be shutdown. All talk of future lineups, picks etc. will go to the WHL Off-Season Thread.

No idea, my guess is that Crooks is a lock on staying. Not entirely sure, my guesses would be Hamilton and Stahl.

But you never know with Zach Habscheid being the coach's son and all.

Victoria's Hopkins one of B.C.'s best

By Mario Annicchiarico, timescolonist.com April 18, 2012

The motto, it’s not how you start but rather how you finish, couldn’t be more true for young Haydn Hopkins.

The recently turned 15-year-old potted a pair of goals to lead Team Bruins to a 4-2 win over Team Sabres in the championship final of the Under-16 B.C. Cup hockey tournament, held at Royal LePage Place in West Kelowna last weekend.

“He was good,” said Bruins head coach Scott Hawthorne, who also runs the South Island Thunderbirds major midget program. “He definitely struggled early in putting the puck in the net the first couple of games.
