Fans Dominate Avs Blog/Ottawa Rumors Pick Up
By: Jeff Little • January 13th, 2009
Just a couple of quick items to get the day started:
– CBJ fans have been doing a great job of representing on the Colorado Av’s blog referenced here yesterday! Nicely done. For those who have not had a chance to visit, here is the link.
– My sources from Ottawa and Quebec (yes, I really have sources!) are telling me that a deal sending Vermette to the CBJ is picking up steam and getting some considerable air-time on radio. No word on who would be heading north, but conventional wisdom is that it would be a player plus draft pick(s). Trying to get my hands on more details. Stay tuned!
Preview of Av’s game later this afternoon.
A native of the SF Bay Area, my first exposure to hockey was the SF/Oakland/California Golden Seals, including Charlie Finley and the white skates. Fast forward to the late 1980's when Gretzky and the Kings came up to the Bay Area for an exhibition game at the Oakland Coliseum Arena, for which we had glass seats. I was at the first San Jose Sharks game in the Cow Palace, and followed them for their first few pathetic years, before moving to Columbus in 1994. I attended the first pro-NHL rally downtown, and have been a season ticket holder since Day 1, wife & I are active in the Jacket Backers, and son is an avid fan as well. I cover the Jackets for Inside Hockey, and contribute regularly to a variety of hockey sites. I maintain contact with the Jackets organization, and like to dig into stories, bringing a fresh, and sometimes irreverent perspective to hockey.
