    The funny thing is several years ago my wife and I stopped at McCormick's (sp) Restaurant in Alex Bay for dinner and they did not have Thousand Islands dressing!

    They were going to call it The California Penal League, but that was already used in the movie "Major League."

    No one should get tired of calculus

    IMO, because it is occuring in and around the CCCP, and as it "dedicated to the growth of professional hockey at the Class A level", it offers a great potential for D-III players who wish to extended their playing careers, once they have exhausted their NCAA eligibility.

    Props go to ozz (Gary) for spotting this.

    Now all of the Oswego State class of 2009 has a league to play in ....Maybe Hincey will join them too on the Rome team.

    This cached (from 12/13/09), but since removed page, notes two of the teams names:

    The Danbury Whalers and the Ottawa Patriots, I'm not sure why they took down the page, maybe failure to complete licensing agreements, terms of the licensing agreements, or just decided to make a media (publicity seeking) announcement later.
    And that cached page also refers to the Thousand Islands team as Alexandria Bay. I like Thousand Islands better. Hope they don't change it.

    Interesting who the owner of the Thousand Islands team is -- Nicole Kirnan Hall, former women's coach at Manhattaville. Very successful coach at Manhattanville. Will be interesting to see how she translates those skills to the boardroom. Best of luck to her.
