    Fans can now go to a pro game in Massena and then top it off at the Mohawk casino which has a new hotel on site. Cornwell is very close just over the big bridge over the St. Lawrence.
    Is that next to Plattsburg where coach Emory coaches ?

        Maybe joecct remembers some of this.
        If I may Russell, I believe you are referring to the Potsdam Pioneers. My father played a season or two for them. It was a "meat and potatoes" type league, from what he described the movie Slapshot isn't too far from the truth. I think they had teams in Utica and Syracuse as well.

          When I was at CCT, the Pios played (and won) in the Ottawa Valley League. There were a bunch of ex Clarkson players playing and it was not that bad.

          The downside was the games were played at the Pine Street Arena which at that time had wooden bleachers and fence wire behind the nets instead of glass.

              It was a bit before my time, but I heard Pine Street didn't have walls either at the time.

                  I'm already hearing some of my co-workers complaining because it's more stuff for them to cover.
