Monday News

Well, besides the USA Hockey winter meetings, of which I don't have a whole lot of news (yet), the big fun this weekend has been centered around HoF'er (and Quebec Remparts owner/coach) Patrick Roy, who got into a little shoving match in Chicoutimi Friday, with the owner of the Sagueneens no less. Several published reports indicate the incident happened after about 50 fans of the Sagueneens prevented the visiting Remparts players from boarding their team bus. At this point, Roy is questioning his future involvement with the Remparts...

But back to the winter meetings... it looks like the age change debate reached a resolution that doesn't really change much for most players and leagues (was this trip really necessary?). I'm reasonably certain that Mark Frankenfeld got the interim title removed from his NAHL commish title. I've also heard that Soldotna's NAHL team is a go for next season (for the geographically challenged, try Mapquest). I haven't heard anything on the return of the (Tier 3 Jr A) AWHL, but hope to soon.

Here's what former NAHL commish Larry Pedrie is up to these days...

Jake Bauer didn't even know his goalies name was Max Strang, not Matt Strang. Thats bad for a defenseman not to even know the name of the goalie he has playing with all year.

oh great... a second franchise owned by the same owners who are failing MISERABLY in Wasilla. Can't wait to see what a disaster the soldotna circus will be. The NA just has far to many issues to admit teams like this with owners this poor.. It will be gone in the near future

Not only will the Alaska teams be gone but the entire NA is on its way to imploding. Say goodbye to the NA, I give them maybe another year before you see 18 teams go bye bye.

When does the NAHL merge with the EJ and AJ and they all become Tier III?

Nice fluff on Larry Pedrie. Marc, you should dig a little deeper. Chill is in serious financial trouble and Larry is leaving the organization for rival Chicago Mission and working for Kevin Mann.

I agree, Pedrie is a cancer on hockey, to give him any spotlight to shine is wrong, he has only hurt the game. Selling out to the Mission to get out from under his financial debrs just as he did when he moved the Chill to Artic a few years back, some people never learn.
