Among others, I've just made 6 Staal family icons, and as Jared's still with the Wolves, I thought I'd share 'em here:

10:59 am - Fans

I am an Owen Sound Attack fan, last night the Attack hosted the Kitchener Rangers and I was seated in there fan section because I like that side of the arena. Now when I go to another arena in the league myself and the rest of the Attack fans are nice to everyone and we try to get along and enjoy the game. This does not seem to be the case for the Ranger fans, I would like to say that I am sure there are a few good fans among the general group of assholes but they are hard to spot. Last night I was surrounded my there fans, They would not shut up and watch the game they spent the entire time bashing our players, Bobby Ryan in particular. The also through a bunch of stuff out on the ice after the game. Now I know some people are thinking that they lost and that is why, no they won, they can't even win gracefully. I know that they are a good team and that they have a large fan base and rightly so, but next time you guys come to Owen Sound leave the jerks behind. At the end of the game when everyone was standing up to leave I have waiting at the end of my row to get out since the first two rows went up past me first. This guy comes along in the row in front and gives me crap because I was blocking the row from moving, I said that I was trying to move and he said not very hard, I replied with what every buddy and we went up the stairs. At that point I figured that was the end of it and I went and stood in the front row to catch the three stars. while standing there he walked back down the stairs and called me an asshole on his was by. Now if someone could explain to me why that was necessary that would be nice to know. I go to the games to watch them, I am convinced they go to the games just to be assholes and trash the sport,a true fan is a gracious fan, if you lose you lose, if you win then cool you won. There in no need to pull shit like this and if it were possible I would like to see Kitchener fans baned from the Bayshore, but since i know that will never happen I guess that I will just has to deal with it, all I ask is that you tone it down a little in someone else's arena

current mood: pissed off

Okay, so..
I have some pictures I took at a Knights/Rangers game (Rangers fan all the way, even if they DID lose in a shoot out. ♥)
They aren't the greatest, and A LOT, or quite a few are of #15 center of Kitchener (Justin Azevedo).
I went to school with the kid. I have the right to call him a brat.
Kidding, lol.
But I did go to school with him. Ask him using the Kitchener website.If you say my name and mention what school, and where I lived, he should remember.
But anyways, I was wondering, if someone could POSSIBLY make me an icon of him?
'Cause I'm HECKA proud of how far he's come in his career.
And how much he's grown.He's seriously such a good player.
I feel bad.I remember walking home from the bus stop one day after school, and he said something, so I pulled the neck of his shirt and stretched it.. ha. I was a bully. And yes, I feel bad.
But anyways, I can upload a few pictures of the game, and if I can find the school yearbook from that year, I'll take pictures of him when he was 14-15years old for anyone interested!!

Okay folks, training camps start next week, with the exception of Sudbury who started yesterday. Is anyone planning on attending any on-ice sessions for their teams? I would like to, but the 67's are apparently really slow at releasing a schedule =P

7:19 pm - Mem Cup Format

So I just watched the Quebec Remparts win the Memorial Cup, and I have reservations about the tournament for the first time. I'm sure it was sparked by my Petes being the first team out of the tournament, but seeing the looks on the faces of the Moncton Wildcats is really bugging me. Moncton, Vancouver, and Peterborough all won their respective leagues, and now those accomplishments have been diminished. Maybe not in the eyes of everyone, and certainly not in my eyes, but to the players and the organizaton - they made it to the Memorial Cup and lost. They were beat up through four previous playoff series to make it this far, enjoyed it for a week, and now three teams and their fans feel nothing but depression. A tournament this huge should not have the power to do that to so many people. It's a good concept, having the ultimate trophy that the three leagues compete for, but winning your own league should ultimately feel better. To win your league trophy, you beat out all the other teams that you play against all year long. In the Mem Cup, you play against three teams you have never seen before and will never see again. There's gotta be some better way to recognize the champions of each league so that the other two/three teams don't lose sight of what they actually accomplished.

Just my thoughts.

11:49 pm - Peterborough Petes win 9th franchise OHL championship

Petes celebrate 50th anniversary with OHL Championship win

In Peterborough, Trevor Hendrikx scored a pair of first period powerplay goals that helped the Petes to a 4-3 win over the London Knights in Game 4 of the Rogers OHL Championship Series on Thursday.

Peterborough won the Rogers OHL Championship Series in four games. It's the ninth time that the Petes have won the J. Ross Robertson Cup and first since they won the OHL championship in 1996.

"I've never felt anything like this before," Hendrikx said after the game. "I can't put it into words."

Daniel Ryder of the Petes won the Wayne Gretzky 99 Award as the most valuable player of the 2006 OHL playoffs as selected by the media covering the Championship Series. Ryder scored 15 goals and 31 points in 19 playoff games to lead the Petes in scoring in the playoffs.

"To win this is very exciting," Ryder said. "It's great. The first year I was here, we didn't even make the playoffs. It's pretty exciting for all of us. We're pretty pumped. We knew it wasn't going to be easy."

Rob Schremp and Sergei Kostitsyn scored early in the first period to stake the Knights to a 2-0 lead. Ryder put the Petes on the board with his 15th of the season. Greg Stewart also scored in the first period for the Petes before Schremp rounded out the scoring with a powerplay goal with 2:43 left in the third period.

The Petes play their first game of the MasterCard Memorial Cup next Friday against the loser of the QMJHL championships between the Moncton Wildcats and Quebec Remparts (7:00 p.m. Eastern on Rogers Sportsnet).

“This is everything I expected," Petes' captain Jamie Tardif said. "It was a great series and a great season. It’s (still) not the trophy we’re after. It’s a great accomplishment for our team, but there’s still one more out there.”

The Petes were a perfect 10-0 at home in the post-season.

"The longer you're in this league, the more you realize how hard this is to win," Pete's General Manager Jeff Twohey said. "It's very special."


Congratulations to the Petes on the victory! It's been a long time, but these guys deserved it! Also contratulations to Danny Ryder on winning the 99 Award! He's had a great playoffs, and I'm happy to see him take it home.

To the London fans, I extend the metaphorical offer of asking to buy you a drink, and wish you the best of luck next season.

On to Moncton! GO PETES GO!!!

I posted a similar messages a couple of days ago about an auction going on in support of Sebastien Savage. This is a guy I knew fairly well, so it definitely touches home a bit. He was the type of player that didn't have the most skill, but always came to the rink with a hard hat and bucket.

I've never been a huge supporter of Don Cherry, but one thing I have always agreed with him on was automatic icing. This incident happened while Savage and an opposing defensman were racing into the corner following the puck. IMO, automatic icing is one of the biggest rules that needs to be inforced in NHL hockey. Just a couple years before, the 67's saw another player, their captain, go down with a serious injury because of the touch-icing rule. He fell knee first into the boards and missed the rest of the season (around Dec/Jan), including the playoffs.

Anyway, I believe that most, if not all auctions end tomorrow around noon!

With Sudbury moving on to Round Two, I figured that I'd post a column about the Wolves from this past Thursday's Sudbury Star.

(I might be the only Wolves fan in this comm, but that's okay. I'll spread the love. Regardless of the team and the town it speaks of, it's an article about hockey and community spirit.)

Wolves bring us togetherCollapse )

5:22 pm - Bring on round two!

Peterborough Petes: 3
Ottawa 67s: 2

With that, the 67s are done, and the Petes are on to round two with a 4-2 series victory. They played a great game today; though they gave up the early power play goal, Fredrick Naslund responded 34 seconds later to tie the game. In the second, the Petes scored two quick goals from Naslund and Downie, and completely shut down the 67s offense. Ottawa came out strong in the third, but were contained by Peterborough until about the 14 minute mark, and it was 3-2... 67s gave it their best shot, but Shantz kept it together and denied them the tying goal.

All in all, a great, exciting hockey game! Bring on Sudbury\Kingston!

Man... I never thought I'd say this, but Ottawa sure is lucky they have Danny Battochio in net right now.
