Saginaw will always have rivalry games against SSM. At least until Gaylord gets a team. It will be interesting to see where Windsor's 2 extra games go (until Rolf Nilsen's son finishes his OA year and the Flint team moves to Chatham.) ;)


They have not approved the building of a new arena in Chatham , that will have to be done before any Junior "A" team moves their , don't see that happening in the near future ..

Considering Rolf Nilsen's son is a '98, they have a few years to get it done.

If the instigator rule is killing hockey now, having to fight every time you throw a clean hit would kill hockey even faster.
