I bet he could tell you the attendance numbers in the room though.

Anyone else, hearing this?
Someone must have the inside scoop
Or if that's the player he made the whole thing up and the OHL bought it. Wilkie spent his last year here claiming he was wonderful and demanding top D minutes. Ultimately the only way they could shop him was as a package deal with Aagaard.

My point is if he was that "mistaken" about his talent and worth maybe he also convinced himself he had a secret deal too?

Just spitballing it, no proof, no inside track.

Purportedly the Icedogs reneging on a deal is what is going to cost us 2 first rounders....

Make a deal with someone ... honour it ...

Guessing they weren’t going to give him $250k lol

That's been my point all along. If one of my trusted employees made a promise without my knowledge, that I never sanctioned, would I pay up? Hell no! I suppose there is the argument that it might be cheaper to pay off an extortionist sooner than face the music for someone else's blunder, but then where is my assurance that the extortionist is done?? Nothing stops that person from coming back tomorrow and raising the stakes - particularly if they have nothing else going for them and you paid hush money in the first place.

It is harder to stand up and risk taking some lumps later on if the extortionist calls you, but morally it is the better course.

I have the same hunch. I think the Burke's trusted ________ to do the right thing and he let them down. I honestly believe they are good and decent people and that their crime was putting too much faith in someone. You can see the family approach they take with their own players and staff, even honoring players on the opposing team. Winning at all costs and without integrity does not fit. I think they will end up paying a fine of some sort for the actions of other people but it will be reduced from the original sanction because that person (whoever it may be) is not with the organization any longer.

Based on what? It's not like there was an extra cheque for a certain player - the poop so far is that they didn't pay and that's why the kid blew the whistle. Do you think before ________ left he authored a to do list of false promises that he made to other players to get them to report to Niagara?
