    Too bad, that was looking like a good option today!

    On a night where there's only one OHL game on the schedule? Unacceptable. I wonder if the team has anything to do with making the call on this.

    If so, then it looks like they'd rather have fans, who would rather stay at home and watch the game on TV than brave the dangerous driving conditions, risk driving to the game.

    I don't think the team makes that call. From what I know, Rogers isn't hiring the staff to run it like they used too.

    Think so, had one myself and lost so much weight with the straw diet, couldn't imagine hustling on the ice as he does. I have been very impressed with him, always notice when he is on the ice.

    I was just informed by my son that the game wasn't scheduled to be on from the start of the season I believe. We likely wont venture out for this one.

    Does anyone know what is on the 2nd floor above the main entrance of the Aud? Is it a restaurant with somewhere to sit? Is it recommended? Only way I am going to the game tonight is if I don't have to cook! LOL!

    Apparently, this was one of two games this year that Rogers had scheduled not to air.

    completely unrelated to tonights game, but are we going to see Carter Tresoor in the lineup any time soon? this is starting to seem like Matt Gordon's never ending concussion that ended in him being reassigned to Cambridge. It has felt a lot longer than it actually has been though (he was hurt in the New Year's Day game).

    something that is related to tonights game, why did Rogers cut the amount of Rangers games they're broadcasting down by 2? I don't live in the area, so I can't get these games anyways. Do they only do the home games? 2/68 seems weird and unreasonable but 2/34 would make a tiny bit more sense

    It's league wide. Found out from a rogers employee Labor day weekend.

    Every team is loosing games. Believe ottawa lost 10-15.


    Next year that 2 is believed to be jumping to 5.

    Get used to fewer and fewer games from Rogers next season and beyond. It costs them quite a lot to broadcast the games and they don't make up for all the costs with advertising.

    Get ready for a paid package. This has nothing to do with the Rangers.

    Well this season ticket holder, who is on a fixed income, won't be doing both. It'll be either continue to be a season ticket holder and see the home games live and do without seeing the road games on tv or cancel the season tickets to see all the games on tv.

    Cannot afford to do both.

    They almost may as well disband the local Rogers channel's then. Ranger games are the only programming that is any kind of draw whatsoever for them. Can't imagine anyone paying to advertise once Ranger games are a rare or non existent occurrence on the channel.

    Sebrango seems to be hitting the score sheet more consistently. At 18 points he is 11th among all 16 year old rookies from this past draft, and 3rd among all defenseman from the most recent draft.

    Great game by the Rangers tonight. Thought they out played the Storm for the most part. Storm pushed back late in the third but Rangers held the fort. Hell of a head check on Langdon in a vulnerable position. Toropochencko(sp) deserves a lengthy one for that dirty check. Good stuff.

    Min 10 games.
    I said at trade deadline that the only bad move that Burnett did was not replacing Burnett the coach.

    I have zero faith in this league handing down the proper discipline. Especially based on Schnurr's headshot on Vallati in last year's post season and his hit from behind bloodying Meireles early this season.

    Also, I hope they review Ratcliffe's head shot on MacPherson near the end of the game. Dude left his feet and everything.

    Reid should be disciplined for only issuing a minor on the play.

    does anyone know what the situation is with the Valade goal? rangers and some others tweeted that he scored but the ohl site says otherwise. Was it called off?

    Replay showed it was offside and it was called back.

    On paper Guelph should have won that game. I think they have two weaknesses, coaching and goaltending.

    If the Storm don't make it to at least the conference final, I can't see Burnett sticking around.

    The compete level on the Rangers was super high and a real treat to watch. Sometimes getting a "C" can weigh a player. Not with Hugg. He's elevated his game. Love the Hugg, Damiani and Stepien combination.

    Toropchenko definitely tried to injure Langdon. The high hit by Ratcliffe on I think Cameron near the end of the game was a cheap shot that I hope the Rangers have the League review.

    The Storm have a lot of skill, but they sure don't look to have any systems or play as a team.

    I think you are correct Ward. Burnett is an issue in Guelph. They gave him the tools at the deadline and they got worse.

    Not sure what message Burnett is preaching at Storm practice. You can chose to play smart hockey or stupid hockey. If he knows an opponent has a great PP would you not try to be disciplined. I think coaching has passed him by.
