In the post-game interview, Adam Brooks stated that the team chemistry has been good since all of the trades, but if the team doesn't improve, it'll be an early playoff exit.

The champs didn't like getting dropped to #2 in all of Canada, and subsequently destroyed Blades on shots and scoreboard Wed night. Least the 3,700 fans showed up for once in Saskatoon though, take a bow on that.

Not worth writing about the Pats beating the Blades. Saskatoon has not had a decent team for so long it is pitiful and they should do themselves a favor and Saskatoon Fans and move elsewhere.

3700??
The Blades have been putrid for so many years I'm surprised they get that many.

Paddock put this team in a bind by completing trasde deadline with a forward short and defenceman heavy.

A playoff injury to any top six forward and the Pats are literally done.

Well at least saskatoon is getting a Taco Bell... since they don't have a decent sports team in that city I feel like they are owed at least that...

Rod,

Did you hear about Bonanza burning down? Pretty sad times... that place is a Pedersen favorite!

I attended the game in Saskatoon last night. I have not been to a game at the Sasktel Centre in about 16 years. After the recent talk of a new stadium in Stoon, I thought I took a close look at some things.

1) Location/Parking- Obviously it was never a perfect location for getting in and out. There was a serious accident on circle drive, which might my route an adventure. However, with only 3800 fans.....the post game exit was simple and quick.

2) Facility-The facility is still top rate for a City of Saskatoon's size. It has a big league feel to it with excellent sound, many concession stops, more then enough seating, space in the concourse.......etc. A new stadium would seem like a serious waste of money at this time. They have all they need for the Blades......and committing to a new rink for the Rush and Concerts seems silly.

3) Atmosphere- they sure turn the sound up to make up for the lack of people. I was impressed when Stoon scored the 4-1 goal that the diehard fans still made a significant cheer. If the scenario happens in Regina when the Pats are down 4-0 and score a late goal, the place would be quiet. I can see that the rink would be tons of fun when full for a Rush game. Too bad I can't commit money to watching lacrosse. I must admit that I enjoyed the game. Here is hoping to the Blades making the playoffs so I can go back in a months time.

Agreed, Saskatoon doesn't need a new hockey rink, paid for by Saskatoon taxpayers for at least 20 more years.
