    Anybody hear anything about a possible new GM for the team? Who do the WK pick in the import draft? A forward is my guess.

    Heard nothing. I will let it play out. See the signing today. Awesome job.

    Asked some people fairly close to the team and no word about a possible GM. At least the team has signed a couple of prospects so that is good.

    Whats the deal with this russian guy we picked at the import draft? He played last season in Sarnia. Thinking he sucked a lot and was released or its a russian war political factor.

    Seems very strange picking a guy who was obviously released by Sarnia as they picked 2 players in today’s import draft. Does not sound like a great move picking a guy who was let go and had very underwhelming stats. Wondering about the reason why this guy was picked. Could someone explain.Better to let your prospects develop on defence than pick an unwanted import and a Russian to boot.
    No word on a PBP guy or a GM?

    He was the only Russian picked besides Mirosnichenko(superstar) who was drafted in the CHL import draft. Makes you wonder if teams are wary of picking Russians. Nothing against picking a Russian but if he was let go from Sarnia because he wasn't good enough that's a crappy pick IMO.

    Seems like a Daniel BUKAC type of deal. Didn't turn out their first year, released and picked up by another CHL team. Their excuse that he is climatized to North American hockey system/ice seems a like an excuse vs logical. Face it we are lacking on the back end. Ward will be around but then Mantei is our next best D man. Hammett didn't jump by leaps and bounds this year. Hoffrogge is a player that can be a filler when others are tired. Mantei did well this year for 16. If Elick can do the same and/or better in his 16 yr old year we should be good for a couple of years.

    Without an explanation by the team this pick seems rather head scratching to say the least. The defence should not be that bad. Not sure this guy will help. Have to get improvement from Hammett,Turner,and Harris.

    What’s so confusing about this pick? Sarnia is stacked on D and he wouldn’t have seen top 4 minutes despite him having decent numbers as a 17 year old. According to sarnia fans on Twitter they are pretty disappointed to let him go as he had some skill and looked promising. Should help our D big time.

    You drink that kool-aid. I guess Mickey Mouse is alive and living in Cuba? You do not let a d-man go that has promise especially at 18!! If the team is stacked on defence this guy is only a third pairing at best. No thanks! Hope you are right but it does not look promising.
