Just a few scattered thoughts this morning... the Broncos host Lethbridge tonight at the Credit Union i-plex. Face-off at 7:30pm, pre-game show at 7pm. Former Bronco Dale Weise, the reigning AHL Player of the Week will join us from Hartford for a chat in the pre-game show.
What was the price tag for Regina Pats F Jordan Eberle at the trade deadline? Blades G.M/Head Coach Lorne Molleken admitted in our pre-game interview they were in the hunt for the Pats superstar but elected not to bite.
Although he wouldn't get into specifics, the rumoured price tag was two first round picks, a top prospect 16 year-old and another roster player - a price they weren't willing to pay.
Molleken said they've been through enough growing pains in the past to realize a huge hit like that would impact the future greatly.
In Saskatoon last night, the Broncos used the same dressing room as the Americans did for the World Junior gold medal game against the Canadians. There was still some reminisce of their presence in the room. The words "What if there was no tomorrow?" was plastered in red, white and blue lettering surrounded by stars above the dressing room door. It was an indication of how they played at the event.
Someone please wake-up the online scorer in Moose Jaw for the WHL website. Much appreciated.
Broncos goaltender Mark Friesen is sporting a new paint job on his helmet. The artwork includes the two older Bronco logos including the horseshoe logo and the cartoon horse they used for the 90's and up until the past few seasons. I'll try to get some pictures and post them on the blog.
Broncos and Hurricanes tonight..... have a great day,
