Hey Mike, you need to buy bus and open a shuttle service between Toronto and Fort Wayne.

What do you think, Steve, a sleeper? LOL.
It really is not a bad drive. I can get down there in six hours.
On another note it looks like things are heating up on the signings after a sluggish Summer.
I see this season starting with much more purpose due to the difficulties in 2010.
Hope everyone is having a good off season. With all due respects to the loss of Tim.

At least we know who to blame now if this season starts off poorly........ Toronto! LOL!

I get all my info. from an agent.
I tell you about: Henley,Woods,Legault,Cescon,Milam,DeAngelis,MacMillan etc.
This is not fair to Blake or Justin.

Blake, the interview at http://www.wfie.com/story/15197178/no-agreement-between-erc-evansville-icemen-means-no-hockey-team-at-new-arena sounds like both sides of the Evansville arena lease issue are not prepared to budge. Any idea how long the league will allow the team to let the issue hang?

The league doesn't really have much choice in the matter.

Well, Mike in Toronto, I wish I had thought to look you up....my family and I just popped up there for the weekend to visit the Hockey Hall of Fame. Loved being up there, and the drive was no problem! Getting in to Canada was easy. Getting back in to the USA was a lot harder (took forever is all, really). All in all a great weekend trip...we had gone to the Perani's hockey sale in Farmington Hills the day before. We loved Canada, and my kiddo kept saying "I can't believe I'm really in Canada!" :)

I am liking the signings so far....keep them coming! I would worry about the lack of a power forward, which is my next priority for this season, but hey...."it's not Christmas yet"!! LOL....hey, someone had to say it....

My question is if this doesn't get solved...which other city is able to take the IceMen in quickly....like in the next 2-3 weeks?

Battle Creek?
St. Charles?
There is another arena north of Dayton.

Best wishes to Venedam. That guy always had a positive attitude. Hope it continues in his recovery.

Two teams in Dayton. That town is barely supporting one as it is.

BLB, happy to hear that you had a good time up here. You would have driven close to where I live, north of Milton. We can get to the HOF in about 50 minutes.
JM. Yes it is tragic about Sean. Colin and his wife are going up to Sudbury next week for the benefit.
This is something you don't expect to see in hockey.
There are a lot of people in his corner.
Sean will really appreciate all the best wishes coming from the Fort.

Taught school in FWCS for many years. Sean Vendam and Colin Chaulk came to my school, I believe the first year that they were with the Komets. Both were wonderful people. Sean did most of the talking and I was very impressed how he worked the crowd of kids. Afterwards, they hung around and shot baskets with the gym classes. I am deeply sadened for him but I am sure he has the positive attitude to get through this and be even a better person. God bless you Sean and good luck.

I don't go seeking to rub shoulders with players often but Sean was the best of the best as far as I am concerned.
If anyone will find a bright light in a situation like this it will be Sean. I wouldn't be shocked if he didn't turn the sport of sledge hockey on its head if he chose to participate.

I would bet he continues skating with his new prosthetic device.

Fri, 08/05/2011 - 3:38pm

That is pretty awful....I did not even open the story until you all started commenting on it....I wish him the best. I was not around as a fan when he was playing here, but still, as a K's fan now, they are all awesome to me. I wish him and his family lots of strength. And Mr S, yep, sled hockey would be glad to have him!! Great thinking there!

Oops I forgot it is called sled hockey in the USA.

Fri, 08/05/2011 - 8:29pm

I want to wish Sean all the best and best of luck. Wish he would come to Fort Wayne to see all the fans that still remember him.

Sun, 08/07/2011 - 11:46am

Hey, they could call it anything, as long as he still plays....best of luck to the guy :)

Sun, 08/07/2011 - 12:03pm

I dont know....sledge hockey sounds kinda interesting...lol


Mr Snufflupugus
Sun, 08/07/2011 - 5:54pm

Haha. I agree. With his attitude he could be a great ambassador for the sport.

It is Sledge hockey in Canada but sled hockey here. I guess they didn't want people thinking it was a female disco sport here.

Mon, 08/08/2011 - 4:31am

Or a sport involving large heavy hammers.....

Mon, 08/08/2011 - 3:15pm
