Appreciate the updates Roof_Daddy, Tigers fan here since the Lysiak and McDonald days in the early 70s. Nice to see WillieD having success behind the bench.

The people of Swift Current are outraged, you won't find anybody (from past players to people who worked for the organization) say anything bad about Butter. Hes so loved by Swift Current, he has a street named after him outside the arena.

You got rid of the one guy left that actually cares about the kids? What a horrible decision.

I see the Tigers eked out a 4-3 shootout win over the Hurricanes in Lethbridge last night. Tough game back in the Hat tonight against Everett who are playing some great hockey this season.

Tigers vs. Silvertips...

The top two teams in the league in win percentage currently, and two of the three WHL teams ranked in the CHL top 10 this week.

General Manager Barclay Parneta announced today that the Vancouver Giants have acquired 1999-born forward Tyler Preziuso (Victoria, BC), 2000-born defenceman Trevor Longo (North Vancouver, BC), a 2020 first-round draft pick and a conditional fifth-round draft pick in 2021 from the Medicine Hat Tigers. In return the Vancouver Giants have traded 1999-born defenceman Dylan Plouffe, 2001-born forward Lukas Svejkovsky, a 2020 third-round pick and a conditional 2021 third-round pick back to Medicine Hat.

What do you think, Roof_Daddy, good trade for the Tigers?!? Don't like giving up the first round pick, but it definitely looks like the Tigers are all-in this season.

Yeah it's a good trade for a team loading up to go on a deep run.

Plouffe is far better than Longo and probably the Tigers best all round Dman instantly, and that is worth downgrading Preziuso to Svejkovsky because the Tigers already have a ridiculously deep forward group, and Svejkovsky is only 18 (two years younger than Prez) and has lots of room to grow.

The Giants get to shake up an underperforming roster, and get another 1st so if the team turns it around they have ammo to go big game hunting at the dead line.

Yep. #6 in the country for good reason.

Tigers maybe a bit shell shocked from the trade? Who knows. They'll get back on a roll I'm sure

I think the Tigers were a little irked from that 5-0 pasting they received from Everett so they decided to take it out on Saskatoon last night thumping the Blades 11-3

They thumped PA 8-4 tonight too. Tigers are emerging ad clear favorites in the east IMO. Can't wait to see them face off more against the OKs

Canes started their stretch with Cozens, Okuliar and Addison tonight. They managed to still beat Red Deer 4-2 despite missing 3 of their best players. Next three games are against the Hitmen though, I don't expect that to go very well for the Canes.

The Canes played sloppy last night. This will be a trying time over the next stretch as they don't seem to have the forwards to control the play. I still like their D and their G has been a pleasant surprise so far. I don't hold out a lot of hope for this next bit, but a lot of teams would hurt losing their 3 top point scorers. Hopefully Anholt has something going to try and help the team through

I don't think there really is much he can do without expending assets that they should really hold onto.

I sure wish he had never traded Franklin away though, as he'd be an overage forward much more suited to carry the team through this spell than Jerome, but that's a long time ago now.

Thankfully they've built up a huge cushion for a playoff spot, and this next stretch will be a good test and growing opportunity for guys like Barlage, Boyko and the rest of the 16-18 year olds that will have to carry this team next year when Cozens, Okuliar and Addison are truly gone.

How did McCutcheon look last night brocoli? He's sort of been billed as the next Addison, so it's nice to have him with the team getting some games in as a 15yo.
