Everything Else

The IceHogs’ 2013 preseason schedule only featured two contests. Both games were on the road as the BMO Harris Bank Center is undergoing seat renovations.  First up for the Hogs was a trip to West Meadows Ice Arena in Rolling Meadows for a tilt against the Wolves, and then it was up to the Kern Center in Milwaukee to take on the Admirals.

Everything Else

Before we get to the prospects roundup, a couple quick things. First, please go vote. Even if you don’t think it affects you, there are local questions and races on the ballots around the place that will. And it feels good.

Secondly, we haven’t talked about it much here and I know everyone in the hockey fan world is doing everything they can to not think about or mention meetings between the owners and PS starting again today. I think it’s ok if you want to be cautiously optimistic. Cautiously. There’s no way that Steve Fehr and Bill Daly would have had that long of a meeting Saturday totally off the reservation. It’s a pretty safe assumption that they were in touch with their fearless leaders about what was going on. That doesn’t mean when more people get in the room it won’t be a complete balls-up. But I don’t think anyone’s going to be surprised by what they hear in that room either. And that they’re not going to talk to the media after means they’re more prepared to actually talk instead of posture. No guarantees, many miles to go before we sleep, but I’m not going to tell  you to forget it this week either.

Ok, to the kids!
