They're actually pretty good.  Problem is that they alienated a pretty large fanbase of Blazer faithful so the attendance is down.  Also, Blazer/CHL fans are used to fan access to players for autographs and functions and the like.  The AHL really doesn't do much of that is my understanding.

Thats what I was getting at......

Not in Tulsa.  Especially if Lund would have still had the team.  He damn near ran it into the ground.  Plus, some people like hockey for hockey, not just for fighting.

The Oilers have won their first two games as a member of the ECHL.  9-6 over Allen (in Allen, TX) on Friday, and a thriller in OT yesterday 6-5 versus the Wichita Thunder.

It's evident that the talent is better in the ECHL.

An acquaintance of mine takes photos for the team.  Sometimes his photos make the Tulsa World article.

What's sad is only one of the TV media outlets even reported on the game (KJRH).  KOTV and KTUL didn't.  At least KOTV ran the score in the crawler.  KTUL wasn't even bothered enough to do that.

2-0.  If you have guys that can score more than the other team...

 Grin

My thought is that all seven former CHL teams will probably not do so well.  The ones that settle in and work as ECHL teams instead of tailoring a CHL game/roster to ECHL will do ok.  Mainly young kids on this team and there is quite a bit of talent.  I'm not hinging the season on 2 games, but the on-ice product is definitely better.

I'm more of a hockey fan then just about anybody I know, but watching Dougie Lawrence, Craig Johnston, and Ron Aubrey get after it was pretty awesome. God, how to I remember those guys names? lol. The mid 90's was a fun time for hockey in Oklahoma.

He was better at it than you think he was.  His grandfather taught him a few things.  He (his grandfather) was a golden glove boxer.  He didn't like fighting unless he had to.  He was better as the agitator.  Teams hated him unless he was on your team.  That's why OKC fans hated him until the season he played for them.  When he left (OKC) he was asked why.  His answer was "Have you seen the women in OKC?".   Grin

Plus, the first three or four seasons no one fought anybody on the Oilers anyway, lest they incur the wrath of Craig Coxe.  Coxe went a few with NHL greats Kocur, Probert and the like.

It *was* the early nineties.  I'm sure I don't want people rehashing old pictures of me from that same period.   Wink
