It's not that I've not heard enough or anything about the Coach with whom the Dogs are negotiating, or enough details on who the Dogs are pursuing. It's that I haven't heard anything at all since Bell accepted that other coaching job. It gives me the distinct impression that the Dogs were really caught off guard by Bell's departure, despite the fact that the Burkes have maintained that they kinda knew this was coming. Just the fact that no one, not here, not the Standard, not the Dogs' website, has heard anything... Usually when there are trade rumours, and then everything goes silent, typically that means a trade's about to happen. This feels wrong to me. This feels like somebody's gotten caught with their pants down, and now they're scrambling.
I mean, sure, the Dogs still have plenty of time before anything really has to be in place, but, man, if the Dogs would just come out and say, 'OK, this is the plan....'

The IceDogs have never been that transparent, they announce things after the fact. The media in Niagara are used to being spoon fed so don't expect late-breaking news unless LaFleche or Herod suddenly start covering sports.

My belief is that (a) they have figured it out and (b) it's summer.

There is no doubt in my mind that the organisation was blind sided on Bell's leaving, but, they granted him permission to pursue his dream and good for them doing so.. It would not have made any sense to hold the coach to his just signed new extension. They could have forced him to stay here, but then. We would have an unhappy person and that would have carried over to the dressing room.

The Ice Dogs are now in a thorough search as to who might be available and would he come here.

For me, personally, I am not bothered at all about the silence and lack of information (leaks) being put out on social media.
If I were the GM, that is the way that I would want it.

Excellent points. Silence might be a good sign.
