What you think about “Kap Flyers are taking shape”

  1. I agree with signing more youth. Why sign a 2000 and have him for just one year, when you can sign a 2001 or 2002 and develop them to help the teams future for the next year or two. I would only sign a really dynamic/skilled 2000.
    Wishing the Flyers the best of luck for several years to come.

  2. Mais oui Flyer Fan there is a boy in Iroquois Keestain Blais that I think has the 2002 birth day a good youth D.

  3. Cochrane bantams had a successful run last season , good to see some of those kids in Kap. Wonder if we will be able to see some games in Cochrane this season…..I know I-falls has lots of ice time .
