      Let's bring in a Russian team like we did in December one year back in the 80's.

      • Many of the Atlantic Hockey schools don't start their schedule until Oct. 8. So they might be available for an exhibition game on the 2nd.
        Hopefully we can get one of them to come to HFH.

            It looks like more than just border issues. The Canadian schools used to start in early/mid-September, having several weeks head start on us. Brock's on-line schedule now shows the season starting in November.

            If we are looking for another opponent, what are the ground rules? D-1 basketball teams can play non-D1 teams or adult club programs (often hastily thrown together groups of recent D-1 alums) or even USA Basketball teams looking for practice. All of our exhibition hockey opponents in recent years have been Canadian teams, but I wonder if we could schedule Plattsburgh or another D-3 program. No opponent will match up to our late '79 game with the Olympic team that went on to great fame, but I'd settle for anything that gives the boys a competitive workout before jumping into regular season play.
            Simon Fraser is starting games in early September and travel to U. Alaska on 9/25. So if anything it might be the eastern Canadian schools. EDIT: Scratch that. I forgot that the U.S. land border remains closed to Canadiens.....yet another policy that makes absolutely no sense, as they can fly into the U.S....but I digress.

                I had thought about suggesting that we could bring back a team of recent graduates to play a scrimmage but so many of them are playing somewhere else.

                                And there would some decent/good coaches after that (1989) but no more very good/outstanding/great coaches until 2017.
