Monday News

Quick reminder that the Helena Bighorns have found themselves short a broadcaster when their previous one moved up last week to the Amarillo Gorillas of the CHL. Anyone interested in calling their games (and maybe doing a little selling) should contact Mike Butters...

I know it's a week later, but some final thoughts on the games played between the QMJHL and the USHL... A major contention the QMJHL-CHL apologists has been their best players, 19 and 20, were at pro camps when the games took place. Has anyone considered that the USHL's best 19 and 20 year-olds were also not in the games because they have moved on to the NCAA? I'm also not sure that enough credit has been given to Omaha (and to a lesser degree Indiana) for their performance despite busing halfway across North America. Yes, the two teams played a scrimmage in Toronto to shake out their bus legs, but this was also the ONLY preseason game these two teams had seen thus far. Rimouski and Quebec, on the other hand, had each already seen six preseason games with which to prepare. Anyway, my point to all this is that at the end of the day, I think the USHL is a lot closer to the CHL than most folks realize or are willing to admit.

Not a lot of other news out there since I cleaned out the inbox last night...
