What you think about “Blast of Winter hits MC”

  1. Twas a good game altho the goal-tending was a tad shoddy on both ends.
    Winter played a good game as Randy notes and Hernandes was all over the ice making his presents felt in a physical way.

  2. This looks good on that McCrimmon who thinks he’s a big shot cause he got Players to leave the Irish and go play for him in Fraser. I wonder if he was tampering with Players on the Irish but we wont never know that for sure .

  3. Whiskey, you should probably be asking yourself how the Irish let McCrimmon leave? Needless to say, he’s been much more important to the Monarchs’ success than any Irish players they traded for. Unlike the guys who were supposedly “tampered” with, the Monarchs got him for nothing.

    FYI – If you knew what the heck you were talking about, you’d know that all the players in the league are on a protected list and management on both sides has to actively participate and sign off on any trade. This would be referred to as “tamper-proofing.” The Irish players you refer to were acquired by the Monarchs last summer in a trade for cash. They didn’t just “leave.” Nice try attempting to stir things up by talking out of your butt, something that is probably very familiar to you. I’m sorry to have to be the one to confuse you with actual facts. Now just put the booze down and go on with your day.

  4. Hey “Tamper Proof” it sounds to me that you are a Monarchs Fan and that you are bitter about loosing to the Irish on Saturday. Sore loser!
