Thank goodness for Kubic!

Pats all over them in the 1st as it seemed Broncos forgot how to skate, but then the tide turned and Pats seemed to have no spunk outside of the Bronco offensive zone. Time and time again they were standing still in their end watching while a Bronco beat them to the puck and immediately directed the puck towards Kubic.

Pretty simple for the Pats - shoot the damn puck more, enough of this fancy schmancy passing!!!

There got it out of my system.

Now lets get'm Sunday.

now the Broncos are 3-0 vs Pats this season and play sunday at Brandt. Then a home and home to end season in March. Can't wait for Pats-SC first round.

This is Memorial Cup Material? "NOT" ! 7 shots on goal in the last 2 periods in an important game like this and the Pats stink the joint out. Swift Current looked and played like a much better hockey team and I would be surprised if the Pats can beat them at home.

It’s one game. Give it a rest. Go pats.

Embarrassing after the first period. The overage's were poor as was just about everyone else. This team is really a box of chocolates. Haven't been able to beat a good team in the East yet this entire season. They don't want to break their nails or hurt their manicures it would seem. Paddock has to be wondering what it takes to get this group to play a full 60 minutes against a good team. A bunch of real lazy guys out there today. Big problems are staring at this team in the face. Time to sit some people out.

The Pats have lots of talent but zero character and determination. Yes I agree with William that all they did after the first period was stand around. Out shot 34-7 after the first period shows clearly that the Pats did that and mailed it in. They don't sell-out for one another. There is nothing in the way of team unity and some of the players we got appear to be busts. We gave away most of our prospects and top picks for years to come for this. Who is held accountable? Nothing like soiling the sheets on National TV.

There is no doubt that Swift was the better team....have been all year..I kinda hope the Pats do get a few weeks rest before the Memorial Cup...remember what happened to Seattle last gas left in the tank...its gonna be great to watch Swift and Moose Jaw beat the crap out of each other. By the way there are 9 kids on the current roster that are 17/18 and goal tending is solid for the next couple of years. Future is not quite as bad as the haters hope...besides its all about this year anyway...see ya at the game this afternoon...GO PATS.

And don't forget Swift Current had just come off a west coast trip playing 5 games in 7 days and arrived late from Spokane because bad weather in the mountains. Thus the poor 1st period play by Broncos. SC will blowout the Pats at the Brandt Sunday folks, bring your children for the massacre.

Hmmm. Well you take away the loser point and were officially below 500 as we've lost more than we've won. Yikes! Certainly don't want to panic yet but come on boys!! Admittedly I only attend a handful of games a year but a common theme I read about is effort which I dont recall being an issue on pats teams last few years. Probly too late to strip the c from Sammy to take the pressure off him but clearly were missing glue guys like years past. Can't blame that on the goalie. I'm sure paddock is at a loss as many fans are why effort is lacking. Especially with all these new players sounds like they need wake up call or a defining moment sadly I believe their only real road trip is near end of the season. Can somebody clear this up because the whl playoff format has always baffled me. Is med hat technically in second by virtue of leading the central? In that case the second wild card guarantees a trip through the central division? Or is swift in second? Obviously barring a colloidal collosal by Brandon our best hope is the second wild card. Hopefully someone can clear that up for me. Thanks! Lifelong pat fan.
