London's game tonight against Komoka is cancelled. I'm told a few of their top guys have tested positive for COVID.

I'm hearing the game Friday in St Marys might be cancelled too.

Not officially, but I heard it is….”from an inside source”

With his hockey bag latched over his shoulder and 6 hockey sticks tucked under his left arm, I'm pretty sure I saw hi hitch hiking on the 401 this morning

I'm not sure why but I'm sure he's not going there for the weather.

Why is Burridge Still in London...rumours about a cash trade to St Catharines.....he wont be nearly as effective without Powers feeding him the puck ..production will definetly drop off

Will the alleged bounty impact 77's chances to make Barrie in Sept?

Nationals are 0-1 with the new coaching staff and minus the GOJHL former leading scorer...interesting how it goes.

Still amazed how a guy who coached in the OHL before ends up getting signed in July and released in August of the same year....like Steven Adler getting kicked out of Guns and Roses it must be a hell of a back story

Have you ever been to a game in Lasalle
Referring was a joke
7 power plays for Lasalle
0 power players for London
REALLY
That is a joke
Good thing they did four man
Referree C. Long watched a Lasalle player highstick a London player twice in the head well carrying the puck then call a extremely weak hooking call on London
JOKE OFFICIATING
BUT THEN AGAIN SEEN IT FOR YEARS IN LASALLE
Not sure what game you were at but the game sheet says power plays were 5-1 for the game and they were 3-0 until the last 3 minutes of the game REALLY

And are you really question that
ok
I question were you at the game
Or are you one of those number geek nerds
REALLY
I don’t know what you’re trying to say...but I do know that you said power plays were 7-0 and that is absolutely wrong, don’t know how you came up with that.

Jesus Reggie…. Bring it down a notch. Or eat a snickers. Anyway, all kidding aside. I was not at that game, but I have been to many games in LaSalle. TBH. Ref’s can have sketchy games at any arena. Hell…. I’ve been to London many a times and Christ… you wanna talk about sketchy reffing… just sayin

Also funny note on that London-Lasalle game Sunday; After the game the posted attendance was 523. (Over the provincial limit) When I checked back Monday it was changed to 480. Probably not much to read into but found it interesting.

Better yet Reggie! When you come back to Viper land I will be seated in seat 501 since you had an issue with the attendance last time you were here.

Why don't we get back to the real issue
London Yes has some big name coaching now
That is what ownership wanted
Big names look good
Sorry to say that they don't have the talent to stay in the top of the league
They will be dropping like a stone
They will be lucky to get home ice in the first round
Worst part the Brutal General Manager that can't even go to a road game did not add any talent at the trade deadline
they actually got worse
Hahaha...they’ve won 7 games in a row, 8 point cushion in first place, only team to have clinched a playoff spot.

When does this ‘dropping like a stone’ thing happen?

The end of this season has been absolutely disheartening. We've still had an ok record in London since the deadline but it really seems like all the players who left have really been an asset to their new teams. Bad trades tbh, basically all of them were within the conference which is a terrible move in a league like this.
