Nobody tells me anything! Apparently this is old news, but the first I heard of it was today.
We're going to have the Phoenix Roadrunners in the ECHL starting next season! Yeaaa! Claude Lemieux (nhl.com) is the president of the franchise -- a real, actual hockey guy! (I'd be even happier if Jerry Colangelo weren't involved & if it weren't going to be at America West Arena -- where the parking will cost more than the seats -- but I can't have everything.) Yea-goody!
(There have never been Phoenix Roadrunners that I (or at least my mom) didn't have season tickets for. I need to get on that!)
I just saw Claude Lemieux play in a charity game and that guy can still play. He's had a lot of shady moments in his career that take away from his talent and great moments. Its a shame because if you strip away the cheap shots, he was a great player.

Originally posted by dunkndollazMinor league hockey is great. Been to games in Hershey, Trenton & Atlantic City so far this year and would love to make it up to Hartford & Danbury before the season ends.
You made it as far out as Hershey, but didn't catch a Reading Royals game?

Maybe I just haven't followed the NHL as a whole closely enough this season, but this sure seems to me like a completely uneven trade, Pavel Brendl and Bruno St. Jacques for Ryan Bast and Sami Kapanen.
