Dogmania, just in case you got the wrong impression I hate this trade because I know they can’t beat Hamilton or Kingston. Ice Dogs window of opportunity is next year.

This is about playoff money. If the dogs are thinking East Championship or even a future Memorial Cup hosting they need a 100% improvement. I look at what is happening in the Q and WHL, we are way behind those better teams. Unless Joey pulls a few rabbits out of a hat, we are not leaving the O for a long time. I have been watching junior hockey for a long time and at this point in this season is where you separate the men from the boys. We do not have natural goal scorers, nor consistant play or keepers. Stevey D even gets tired. We do not have the defense to help our keepers out. Yes they block shots but the opponents should not even get to that point.
This move IMO does 2 things 1 it helps the biggest thing any owner cares about the business (they get more $$$$$) and 2 I honestly think they believe that they COULD make a trip to the third round if everyone is healthy and everything aligned for them

A division championship would prove to everyone that Mr & Mrs Burke made the right choice in handing the reins over to their boys. Add to that a player who will really help Akil Thomas ( a favorite of the entire Burke family) and you have more than enough justification for this trade. Add to all that the fact that our head scout has been out recruiting the high end players (Norris etc) for next year. When you own you do as you please
Until the head scout delivers one of these high end players, it means nothing. Don't get me wrong, I hope he does, but until then....

Weird deal Barrie also traded Lipanov too Sudbury so it does not improve them that much.

Sokolov scored 48 goals last year, he has 20 this year, just played for Russia at the Word Juniors. Lipanov has 11 goals.

It doesn't improve them much? Too funny.
