...and coach!

Ok so we are getting a Tier 2 coach from Brantford (shock and awe). I had hoped they would have contemplated digging deeper into the wallet and paying for someone with OHL experience or better but we will see what happens.

So essentially the coach and GM of the Brantford 99ers, who have only finished above .500 once, are now the coach and GM of the Icedogs. Don’t you need to have success at a lower level before moving up to a higher level. Whether they are marginally better or worse than Billy and Joey really doesn’t matter. Neither DeDobbelaer or Fitzgerald are OHL level management. Think of how many better coaches and GMs are out there.

So I think it’s obvious that DeDobbelaer is not really serious about winning. I think he is just looking at minimizing expenses.

Or until him and Gretzky get a new arena built in Brantford and they move the team.

Not happening anytime soon plus it impossible to get out of the lease.

Dedobblaer was on with Tom McConnell today. He said all the things we want him to say. I have a good feeling about this. They even discussed the possibility of the Memorial Cup in two years. Said some local people had already contacted him about putting in a bid. They discussed how important it would be to have a competitive team by then.

Well we wait and see

I am not impressed that he is the GM

I am not enthused about a Tier 2 coach

I am glad that the Burke sideshow has left town, time will tell to see if a new big top has been set up though

The fact that Gretzky is a minority owner, whoop dee doo, I would guess Wayne thinks others should be in these positions. It since he does not have enough skin in the game his opinion does not matter

We now wait for training camp
