Traveling from LA and staying at the Red Lion Inn in downtown SLC Thursday night before hopping on a flight to Denver on Friday to catch a few Phish shows! Will see a ton of friends and alums this weekend. :)

The Kamloops Blazers' NHL 94 game celebration was a WHL meme that lasted about two weeks before opponents quickly tired of it. I'm very surprised that 1990-94 born players picked up on a trend that occurred so early in their childhood. I've told players on my own team that the reason that I follow the Denver Broncos was because of Tecmo Bowl, only to be met with blank stares.

For those who didn't click on the link to the Edmonton Journal, here are a couple more of Linden Rowat's quotes to balance the one quote plucked for the purpose of slandering the CHL:
"I don't really know what I'm going to do pro-wise if I get an opportunity but I'm kind of setting up for going to the CIS and playing some (university) hockey and get a degree"
"I learned a lot about living the (hockey) lifestyle, being a good person, being a good community person," added Rowat. "Teammates, friends, living with different families, it builds your character"
Rowat now has four years of a full ride paid for in college - the CHL's educational system is in full effect here.
Also, here are some amazing WHL (and WHL prospect) names that should be read in a Canadian accent:

We were actually down in Portland last night - Everett extended its winning streak to 11 games by taking down the Winterhawks 4-3 in a game with a terrific, playoff-type atmosphere (though not Yost). Shoot me an email ([email protected]) and I'll make sure you get some tickets the next time we roll through,- Tuesday, March 9th.

Dean Lombardi wasn’t the GM of the Kings at the time of the Cammalleri signing – that was former GM Dave Taylor (per previous post).
As I can count the number of UM hockey games that I’ve seen since graduating on one hand, I don’t have any valid opinions on the current state of the Michigan Hockey Program.
Still, from the head coaches, assistant coaches, and other hockey figures I’ve spend time with, there is a strong prevailing view that Michigan is not as good at developing talent as it is at simply plucking the best players from around North America. Since joining the Western Hockey League I haven’t had a conversation with one person that has defended Michigan’s ability to cultivate and develop talent. This is not just NCAA vs Juniors: FIGHT issues here – the people whom I’ve had discussions about this have also spent time on the coaching staffs of various NCAA programs and are more neutral in the NCAA vs Major Junior tug of war.
As someone who grew up in Los Angeles and has devoted many painful years of my life towards following the Kings, this Lombardi-Johnson spat irks me, and I’m disappointed that Dean's unneccessary comments were publicized.
I just wanted to convey that it’s not just one flustered GM who harbors these opinions – it’s definitely a commonly held view amongst many respected hockey figures.
I’ll let myself out.
