After watching the K's against the Ice Hawks a week ago I feel very good about this group and it could very well end in another championship. Go K's

Great story Blake! I have said all year that the Coach of the Year is Al Sims. He is the common denominator. The guys like him and they love playing for him. He is a players coach. He brings that wanting to win attitude from the very first contact with them. Why he isn't the COY is a mystery to me. The refs like & respect him. He believed in his guys (this team) all year. They are just delivering on that trust.

Okay... Here's another dumb question. So the rule is that we can have no more than 7 veterans, but we must have at least 4 rookies. Obviously there is a hole in there, because that doesn't add up to a full roster. Is there a stage between rookie and veteran? What is that called? Because I don't think I've ever heard another term mentioned. And how many games does a player have to have participated in before they are considered a veteran?

60-299 is called a tweener I think

Here is a link to the answer to your questions.

A "tweener" is someone who is not considered a rookie, played more then 60 games in a regular season, but hasn't played enough, 300 games in a regular season, to be considered a Veteran.

ex: David Huckalo is now a tweener but will be classified as a veteran next season.

Wendy, there is no such thing as a dumb question unless BAM24 asks anything.

Thanks for the compliment, Shark! I don't ask questions. I give answers!

He-he. Thanks. I can see why that term isn't used much. "Tweener" brings to mind little girls who are still clutching Barbies while trying to imitate Paris Hilton.
