Portland Releases Lee Morrow

What significance is this is to us?..(not much..just a huge trade-win)

2 years ago we traded highly regarded prospect patrick wiercoach, and 16 yr old defenseman Lee Morrow to the Portland Winter Hawks for their star defensmen micheal sauer halfway through the season. Sauer helped solidy the blueline and was a part of our 2006/07 whl championship victory.

Well patrick wiercoach ended up taking the ncaa route, and decided not to report, and Lee Morrow only ended up playing 20 games. He was just released and dropped from the hawks 50 ppl.

SO its safe to say we traded nothing away for a top quality defenceman.

Now lets hope those 2 2nd round picks we got from spokane dont go to waste so spokane can't say the same thing to us:P(trading trevor glass)

TIgers vs Kelowna Tonight

Should be a goody. Kelowna is sitll missing 2 topend guys, in luke schenn and Tyson Dowzak
Tonight marks the return of goaltender Kris Lazurek: the goalie who stoned the tigers last year in firstround playoff exit to Kootenay.

The Kelowna powerplay is operating at a league high 30%. In fact 11 of thier 18 goals are from the PP this year. Lets hope the tigers can stay outta the box!
