Fact of life with the level of player turnover the junior leagues see.
Quote:
Players aged 1520 are eligible to play in the WHL, though 15-year-olds are permitted to play only five games unless their midget team's season has ended. Also, each team is allowed to have only three 20-year-olds on their rosters, unless there is an expansion team, in which case five 20-year-olds are eligible to play.
So for most guys, a WHL career is only 4 years - not a lot of time to build chemistry with teammates, not a lot of time to make trades for good players, especially as many of the really skilled guys won't really start to shine until they only have a couple years left.

You know what it means if the Blackhawks win the President's trophy in this short season?

No Stanley Cup for those bums from Chicago. The curse of the President's hardware.

Main difference is that the leaf player pushed the senator into scrivens. Raymond clipped the goalie's foot on his own.

I still think all players should remove helmets before they fight, whether or not they have visors on.

Yes, because surely that will help concussion issues. With all the attention concussions got last season and what's happening in the NFL I'm surprised the league hasn't cracked down more on fighting this year.

Anyway gars, I know what you're saying - but I think in 5 years time there will be far less fighting aloud in the NHL.

Saw Jeff tambellini play today at ubc with the thunderbirds alumni. I thought he signed with a Swiss league? Perhaps he might have another chance with the canucks?

Doubt it, we already have a stocked roster.
Maybe he got cut from the swiss league? Just practicing to keep in shape/skill wise

Edit: Looks like he and swiss team mutually agreed to end contract back in December. Guess Jeff just practices there to keep his head in the game, looking to enter the NHL again?
