Final tryouts tonight – lots of players on the bubble, old and wily veterans struggling to hold on to their high paying contracts being pressured by hungry youngsters ready to leave it all on the floor to get their shot at glory….well, maybe not in our situation but this crap always sounds good on TSN.
Last week the turnout was a bit disappointing – only 20-25 runners and the stamina only lasted till 10:15 or so though thee were a few keeners left on the floor for awhile honing their (booming) shots. Still just over 50 registered and 8-10 more more or less confirmed to come.
Another pickup evening tonight, come out 8:00, 8:30, 9:00 – but be aware that there may not be too many players left alive and mobile on the floor much after 9:00pm. If you haven’t registered online or paid yet, read the previous posts for details and bring along a cheque or cash tonight. If interested we will likely be retiring to the Alibi afterwards to discuss team new player drafts, trades and/or preliminary rebalancing. There has been some talk that maybe a full reshuffle might be in order but be aware that there seem to be 4-5 clusters of players that want to or should play together. Once the clusters are seeded, there is limited flexibility to place most of the rest of the (less picky) players. …sigh….. the things that have to be done to keep the prima donnas happy! 🙂
In any case, full games start next week, rosters and a schedule will be posted as soon as I can get things figured out
