Trying not to be a pain but 2 questions

1. With the Brampton Battalion relocating to North Bay next season, the Mississauga Steelheads are going to be the only Toronto area team in the OHL compare to a decade ago the TO area had 3 OHL teams. Do you think that the Toronto Maple Leafs are the only team that the people can support or Brampton is just a bad market?

2. What other Toronto area city you think that can support a OHL team?

Other than the Leafs, have you ever seen an NHL Game in another arena in another city?

I have personally been to roughly 100 AHL games since 2006, albeit all Hartford Wolf Pack/ CT Whale games and I live in the Hartford area, It is a lot cheaper than an NHL game.

I'm thinking of heading down to Binghamton during Christmas break to see my Baby Sens play. I really want to see all of our prospects like Zibanejad, Stone, Prince and Silfverberg (if I spelt that right).

Here is my question:

Which teams do you think have the best upcoming talent besides Edmonton?

Tyler Gross said...

Never been to an AHL game. There isn't really any AHL teams around here. The closest is probably OKC or the Texas Stars, which are both pretty far away. Although I have been to about 6 CeHL games and plan on going to more this year.

I went to a Marlies game with my school in the 6th grade. It was okay but I would prefer to go to one outside of Toronto. I know the ECHL is a good league. I want to see the Toldeo Walleye and of course the Trenton Titans play, as I've heard they can get at it. My question this week for you is, should seasons be put into the hall of fame (like if a player has an incredible season, record breaking and has other mediocre seasons, like Nikolai Khabulian in 03/04)?

I had the chance to see - a while ago! - great AHL games in my hometown. Yep! Got to see young rookie Patrick Roy win the Calder Cup for the Sherbrooke Canadiens, with the help of then-unknown Claude Lemieux. Great time, but empty arena. AHL then felt like "almost NHL, but we're not getting it". We now have a QJMHL (CHL) team that has the second worst stats in the league - and they almost only win on the road - with an almost always 3/4 full arena. I prefer minor league hockey. Players are not called back to the big club, you see them play often - and for less money - and a player never stays more than 3 to 4 years. Plus, kids relate more to the team. Nope, I don't miss the AHL, and I don't care if the NHL lockout goes on for the entire season.
