Saw this yesterday and meant to post it earlier.
Like i have said on here before, our draft record of the past few years has been terrible.
this years was bad.
barker breaking his leg, was freaky and so i won't hold this against the cats
giguere goes to the states, the cats knew this and we actually did need a receiver, we sign pat woodcock and a bunch of nobodies who will be gone sooner rather than later
lavigne masse - practice roster
giffin - school
we have no draft picks playing for us this year. I find this very unreasonable when we even moved up in the draft cuz of mtl.
Cant blame the TiCats if their top pick brakes a leg!. giguere will eventually end up in hamilton, or they can trade his rites. bauman is as good as fantooz,. and with two top picks nextdraft Oline! 2009 looks like a cup year imho
This whole Canadian draft thing is pretty lame. Here's the top 20 from 2008, not too many actaully made it. Where are these guys??
