Going Going...Gone (Almost)



I was at a Springfield Falcons get together on Wednesday night. To nobody's surprise, President & GM Bruce Landon during his opening comments stated that:

"It won't be official for a couple of weeks, but the Oilers will not be returning to Springfield next season. They will be moving their AHL club to Oklahoma City."

Goodbye Oilers...thanks for nothing. The ownership group here in Springfield has been abused for the last six seasons now. Three with Edmonton, and the three previous with the Lightning. Pro hockey has been in Springfield since 1926, and these have unquestionably been the six darkest years in memory.

The players OTOH are all a good bunch and I wish them well wherever they end up in their careers.
