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?

Roberto Luongo's pretty much history in Vancouver, according to, among other media outlets, the Toronto Star. He seems to have his eye on Chicago or Florida...but where would he be better used? I'm still hoping Luongo will sign with Toronto.
