    Giants send Plouffe and Svejkovsky + a couple 3rds to Med Hat for Longo/Prezuiso and a 2020 1st + 5th.

    Pretty big trade.

    Rockets loading up for the Memorial Cup. McDonald had been gone from the Oil Kings since early November for personal reasons, must have wanted a move closer to home. Sucks for them when they’re having a good season but that’s a solid return and it opens up an OA spot for them.

    Word from Brandon is they are looking at Luka Burzan and Jiri Patera from Brandon. But Patera is a 20 and unlikely to get moved now I am guessing since they picked up McDonald. But I am really think Brandon is going to be strong after the winter break. They finally got Kallonkelli in the lineup and the line with him/Buzan/McCartney have looked dominate.

    Kamloops will be looking for another piece for their backend and into the top 6. It's going to be a really fun second half!

    I agree. I really like what they have. They have prospect and draft capital to add a piece. Saskatoon without Dach doesn't scare me and PA is coming back to the pack. Winnipeg can't win on the road.

    Speaking of Winnipeg, did their ownership over estimate the market? Capacity is 1600 and other than Brandon games they don't sell out. Plus aren't they paying a lease in Cranbrook still? You seem pretty knowledgeable Joe any thoughts?

    You're probably right, I was very surprised they hired Foote when his only coaching experience was coaching his son's minor hockey teams. Obviously the experiment didnt work out.

    What a comeback by the Giants tonight. The building was going mental when they tied it up and then got the go ahead goal. Tied their regular season record for most wins in a row.

    With Wylie now signed, Everett has all 3 of their overagers signed to NHL contracts, when is the last time that happened?

    I'm looking at the roster the Hitmen had this year. How did they finish with a wildcard? They look like they should be at or near the top.

    I am surprised that seeing this year was cancelled, that the CHL wouldnt just give Kelowna next seasons Memorial Cup. Too bad that it just doesnt happen cause now they go back East as planned.

    What a waste of money and time for Kelowna preparing their bid and starting the preparation for the Memorial Cup

    Kelowna was already looking like a weak host and I think next year would be even worse for icing a team. They spent a lot on bringing in overagers and are probably losing Foote to pro hockey as well as possibly Hamaliuk.

    Hamaliuk really didn't do anything in Kelowna. How he got signed is beyond me.

    Foote has never impressed me. Soft player, lazy. But will probably be in the AHL because he is signed.
