As we all start to realize the NHL strike will last the full season and as we all start to realize we really do not care, it is nice to see that other levels of hockey are getting the TV coverage they deserved all along. I notice today that TSN is showing NCAA Division 1 hockey games starting this month. Here is the schedule. No Saint Lawrence play but lots of games from their league, the ECAC.
Last Saturday night, we watched the Manitoba Moose play the Hamilton Bulldogs in AHL action which was as good as half the NHL you see most nights. And, of course, all good Canadian kids are unable to sleep with the prospect that in two days...the World Juniors begin.
