Its not QMJHL or WHL. But...they do send a lot of players o the NHL, unlike the ECHL. We have Rivet as a connection now! I'm sure Doc knows peeps! I think Doc cared, but the first couple years were cake when every game was selling like hot cakes and he was just watching the cash roll in. STED's fault, they owned and did nothing. They had Doc signed up to do their dirty work.
