Sunday News

USHL sees 26 former players taken in NHL draft. I have to wonder how much money that would equate if the league got the same draft compensation as the CHL. For that matter, how can we get some draft compensation to the NCAA, perhaps sending those NHL dollars to USA Hockey for general development. By the way, the 63 Americans taken, 30% of the total, represents a new record...

Fargo's arena groundbreaking is Wednesday (use to get around the registration hassle)...

the USCHO article

identifies Peter McNab as Assistant Gen Mngr of the Ducks. It's Peter's brother David with the Ducks. Peter McNab is color analyst for the Avalanche. I have pointed this out to editors USCHO.

That's about as bad as the guys on NHL Radio, when talking about Patrick White from the Tri-City Storm, drafted #25 by Vancouver, confusing the WHL's Tri-City Americans with the USHL's Storm.

"Well, the Tri-City Americans, one of the great teams of the Western Hockey League, Tri-City now in the USHL..."

Yikes! That's a mistake that's just amazing that it could ever happen.
