This team is going into another abyss. And hopefully it finally involves some trading away of talent at the trade deadline. This will be the only answer to the woes of this hockey team. We, the FANS, might as well endure the rest of this season without stars so that there is hope for the future of this team. The status quo of the Regina Pats lately has been incredibly woeful. Please Chad, do the right thing at trade deadline and make the future of the Pats something to be proud of.
