i am with you. Lets see what the Brant crew can put together . It can't be worse, it might be better, and with Gretzky involved, it could be interesting.

I think that is the basis that I am going on this year. Give them a chance and see what happens. There is nowhere to go but up unless they expand the league!

An experienced associate coach that they ignored... or if they listened to him and that was the result then maybe new blood is a better bet?

Maybe he knows he is a good GM but recognizes his coaching skills are not up to par? Maybe he is interim GM until Davey Branch approves the sale, then goes out and hires someone more qualified.

I am still left wondering about the sudden departure of Wes Wolfe from Cobourg. He is from the area, coached many teams locally and was Assistant Coach in Erie during a Memorial Cup win.
