What you think about “Thunderbirds claim first place”

  1. when does the post season start Mr. R ? I am getting excited for some playoff hockey to begin here in the Nickel City, scared for the boys though they gotta face them pesky Wildcats in rd. one. here’s hoping for an upset in round one for the boys ! Go Barons Go !

  2. I hope the Beavers organization contacts the league to decline their participation in the playoffs. Enough is enough.

  3. I would have preferred a different playoff format. BR doesn’t deserve any more games.
    I would prefer the top teams get a bye to rest/recuperate and meet the winner of 2 vs 3.
