So we heard on the post-game show driving home yesterday that the Eskies had a good number of poo-bahs in Regina yesterday to witness the loss first-hand. Not just Dancin' Danny, but Rick Lelacheur as well and three members of their Bd. of Governors/Directors. That's a lot of high-priced talent for week 3, and certainly out of the ordinary, as team brass, and particularly board members rarely if ever attend road games.
My guess is if you're joining the team on the road for enjoyment's sake, you'd wait for Vancouver or Montreal to show up on the sked. Are Hall's days already numbered? And if so, what is out there as mid-season fill-ins? Because remember, you lose both a HC but a DC as well. Maybe Richie giving himself that second job was a subconscious move to gain some job security?
I can't see Strasser being elevated. That would be the ultimate example of the Peter Principal.
