It was a 3-2 game that could have gone the other way. The Pats have to learn to start stronger and play a little more physically because it's a hame MJ doesn't like to play. Max Paddock was OK but not great. A goal through the wickets can't be in a close game. Two 3 on 2's in the first and the Pats pass away on three golden chances. The Pats didn't go to the dirty areas near enough and it's something that needs to change. If Paddock changes properly that third goal never happens. A game they could have won but no with that level of intensity.

Anon #1... Sounds like you should take over the reins as Coach of the Pats. You contradict everything Paddock does so you must think that should be your job. Overall the Pats got beat by the soon to be WHL Champions and possibly Memorial Cup Champions, they have a much superior team than Regina has. Or do you already know that also?

Anon #2 ... I'll make the phone call bright and early Monday morning to the Pats office indicating I'll be taking over the reins immediately. Pats in the 2018 Memorial Cup thank you. Moose Jaw Warriors, thanks for trying, better luck next year or whenever.

So is the big trade with Saskatoon for their star goalie a bust? Is this poor kid out for the season?

And just why are the Pats in the Memorial Cup???? LMFAO

Andrew Wiens said...

You do realize they got two players in that trade right?

The pats are in the mem cup because Moose Jaw is too small to host. Someone has to host each year and we stepped up. What's your problem.

I gotta say as a Memorial Cup host Pat's fan i rather enjoyed the game in MJ last night, however I have never before heard fans cheer when a kid gets hurt by a puck, but I guess that's a thing in MJ...losers of 4 of their last 5 and they barely beat the Pat's back up goalie..

Moose Jaw-league champions? BAHAHAHAHAHAHA!! Not going to happen!

On another matter, why did we get Gabrielle? This guy is hurting the team more than he helps! Did he learn in the Bruins organization how to be a complete prick from Marchand?

Grow up already!

I was also at Warriors Pats game on Saturday night, I must have had a different experience at the game then bdhnc because I never heard fans cheering when Leschyn got hit in face with puck. If you did here that I really hope you called them out about it to their face rather then make up a story a day later and try and make a fan base look bad. As for the Pats playing with the backup goalie story.... Warriors down 2 dmen to start the game, played with a called up 15 year old and lost Clauge for the third and still managed to win against a very good Pats team. Oh and when did the Warriors loose 4 of 5?

As for the rest of the Pats fans that came out, it was a lot of fun. Thanks for supporting your team and our local economy in Moose Jaw with your hard earned money. Have fun rest of the season and I hope our paths again in the playoffs, that would be a lot of fun.

With respect to the comment that Moose Jaw is too small to host the Memorial Cup, with a brand new rink and lots of extra hotel rooms down the #1 in Regina? Brandon hosted the Memorial Cup in 2010. It did a great job. They will bid again. It shared the Memorial Cup in 1980 with Regina as well. For a City of just under 50,000, it can be done, and the Brier is back for a second time next year, to go with hosting the Scotties, Roar if the Rings for the right time to go to the Olympics, and the 1995 World Curling Championships. Community spirit and a good base of volunteers sure helps. While Moose Jaw is a bit smaller than Brandon, it could host some day, and this year's team may win the Dub. They are very skilled but some of their key players are a bit small. It will likely come down to goaltending, and whether or not their depth prevails over the star first line and trade pick ups in Swift Current. For Regina, the Pats should at least now be respectable, as they have beat Moose Jaw twice and only lost this close game by one goal. However, no disrespect intended to Paddock's nephew, but they are going to need Kubic to play going forward, if his injuries can heal in time. We see Moose Jaw twice more and Swift Current once more in Brandon before the end of the season, so we can see who looks better or more prepared going into the playoffs, which the Wheat Kings may miss, uncharacteristically, if their downward spiral continues.

So if Moose Jaw could bid for the Memorial Cup. Why didn't they when they knew they had the team to compete in it? I'll just sit back and wait for the answer now.

MJ soiled the sheets last year and will again this year. They are too soft and full of themselves. Hunter is a big turd plain and simple. He was the one who called his team out last season putting the blame on them for losing to SC but not putting any on himself. How bush and convenient! Last weekend he was doing the same thing once again. He eeks out a 3-2 win and feels the need to to disrespect the Pats team and organization when they have been mediocre themselves lately. It's probably the only way to motivate his soft group. He conveniently forgets that the Pats beat him two the previous weekend. He will never get by either the Broncos or the Pats nor should he. A classless comment by a classless coach and organization. The Warriors should buy tickets to the Memorial Cup because that's the only way they will ever see it. Paddock should thank Hunter for giving his team the easy motivation to send MJ golfing.

Hunter has forgotten more about Hockey than you will ever know Knuckle Head. Talk about disrespect, you are full of that buddy along with the barrel of bullshit you carry with it. Pats are a sub par team not even close to being as good and classy as the Warriors and their Coaches and Management. Just make sure you appear on here with the same attitude when the Patsies get knocked out in the 1st round and Moose Jaw keeps winning. Oh by the way stick around because Moose Jaw will wanting you to be their Caddies when THEY finish the season.

And Paddock has forgotten more about hockey than Hunter will ever know. What’s your point?

I was listening to Flames game on radio app on weekend and they interviewed Tim Hunter. He said he 'wants a head coach or at least an associate coach job in the NHL'. So enjoy him this season in Moose Jaw, because he gone.

Warriors are so soft. In a 7 game series they don’t stand a chance against Regina or Swift Current.

I don't know I'm torn on this one. The same old same old does get old especially players so it was cool to see some honesty and passion from Hunter but st thesame time I kind of found myself cringing . May be it's because it came from the HC. Did seem classless and a bit of childish toadaso. You can certainly tell JP been around the block with his reply to it. Perfect Boring classy but u come to expect . Maybe hunters got some more maturing to do as a coach . His players did totally quit on him last year. Can only hope for that again this year especially if we play them.
