    Default 2017 Off Season

    What do you guys think this team needs to do this off season to improve? My wish list would be a new coach but that doesn't look like that will change. I also think they need to find some character guys to bring in . I think this team was lacking some leadership this year. If Patrick does return I hope they trade him at the deadline to build around the 16 year olds coming in this year . That's what I would like to see .

    I agree with every thing you say. Kirmel. Don't think you will see a coaching change and I don't think Patrick comes back unless he goes number 2 to Philly. You can see by this year's bantam draft that the team management must have realized that they needed players with more heart and competitivenes. Could use have used more of both this year. I am thinking the team is once again a possible wildcard team this coming season. Don't think they can handle Reg, MJ, SC or even PA, but I hope I am wrong. I guess the development of our 18's into 19's and our 16's into 17's will go a long ways to determining where we finish next year. We need to be more competitive in our overall play.

    I wonder if all of our drafted players show up this weekend at the prospects camp.That will give us some idea of who is committed to the WHL.

    I see a lot of WHL teams announcing the signings of their top draft choices. I hope to hear of the WK signing some of their top picks at the Prospects camp this weekend. When will their website or the Brandon Sun give us some info on the camp?

    Went to the Prospects intra squad game this morning and was impressed by this group of prospects. The best player on the ice was Braden Schneider followed closely by Ben McCartney. You can tell they had some experience last year in the playoffs with the WK.Others who looked good to me were Vincent Iorio, Jack Zayat, Jayson Szun, Sam Anderson, Anthony Kehrer, Lyndon McCallum, johnny Hooker, Codey Behun, Kolton Shindle and Kyle Bettens-----looks bigger than his older brother Rylan. Both goalies were good Ethan Kruger and Logan Thompson. Some small but very skilled forwards. #1 pick Ridley Greig did not stand out but this is only one game actually 2 periods. Up next import draft and then rookie camp in late August.
