Who should get fired (or how about a good talking to)?

The person who controls the volume knob on the speakers above my seat .... oh and the person who raised the price of beer a whole dollar this year.

I’d like to know why a coors banquet costs $1 more than a coors light ...

Because last time I checked a case of coors banquet doesn’t cost $24 more than a case of coors light

Lol

I don’t buy many beers in there at those insane prices anyways

It really takes the wind out of your sails when you are battling to put the puck in the net and your goalie lets in a softie on the back end.

Banquet is 10 times better. Factor that in.

But seriously. They should lower the price by $2 for all brands. Or offer a "special" cheap draft at one station as a promotional thing. Not everyone can afford these prices and they might get more people in the door in the first half of the season.

I realize the trade off might be more security incidents.

Hmm...interesting gripe here.
2 things...no one is being forced to buy a beer at a game and I personally find it hard to believe anyone would choose not to attend a game based on beer prices. I know prices are high so I have stopped buying beer at Meridian Centre.
Also...it is my understanding that the IceDogs have no bearing on concession prices...it is controlled by the venue.

I think its silly to blame the goalie for the series loss when he has the best GAA of the playoffs.

Dhillion kept Oshawa to 2 goals or less in three of the games, and 3 goals or less in 4 games. That should have been good enough to win the series.

You seem to think you need to best goalie in the league to win a championship. The Hamilton Bulldogs proved that theory wrong last year. Their main goalie, Fulcher, was 7th in GAA (2.86) and a whopping 20th in save percentage (0.899) during the regular season. Yet despite this, they won the championship. They won, because they averaged 4.33 goals a game during the playoffs, which was up from the 3.70 goals per game they scored during the regular season.

Need more proof. Ottawa is averaging 5.91 goals a game and Saginaw is averaging 4.84 goals per game but Niagara averaged only 3.09 goals per game. On the flip side, Ottawa has allowed an average of 2.54 goals per game, Niagara 2.54 goals per game and Saginaw 2.69 goals per game.

It was not the goalie or defence that lead to Niagara’s downfall, it was a lack of scoring.

And that, 5FF, a lack of scoring, is the last thing that I thought would sink the Dogs heading into the playoffs. I saw the potential for 3 scoring lines on this team, with lots of options if Billy thought he would have to do some tinkering. I suppose that, and lack of discipline. This team just unravelled, with their scorers taking most of the penalties.
