Another long offseason

The Blades were close to making the Playoffs but did not make the cut.  So the focus shifts to the WHL draft.

The Blades will have the 5th overall selection and the 10th overall selection acquired in trade.

It will be interesting to see what the team looks like.

Yours truely will probably get a sneak peak at next year. At a Season Ticket Holder BBQ in May.  

I am excited for next season already!

Blades Playoff hopes slipping.

They went 0-3 on the road trip this weekend. Playoffs are looking like a dream at this point. At least the Saskatchewan Rush will fill Sask Tel Centre for playoffs. When they clinch. Go Rush Go.

Saskatoon Falls to Kootenay.

In the 2nd half of the season. Some teams may be fighting for their playoff lives. The Saskatoon Blades are one of those teams.

The Blades kicked off their 3 game road trip. Saskatoon scored first.  They ended up losing 3-2. Two more games this weekend.  Lethbridge and Calgary before returning home to play the Regina Pats on Wednesday.

Blades lose to Silvertips.

I am always excited when the US division teams come to Saskatoon.   A very good team and awesome uniforms.

Brock Hamm got the start VS Carter Hart.

Kirby Dach scored first for the Blades.  Then the Tips tied the game.  The Blades sent out their best shooters.  Everett's shooters were better.  Blades lose 2-1. Blades play 3 games on the road. Lethbridge. Calgary and Kootenay.  A crutial road trip.

Saskatoon is 3 points ahead of Calgary for the final playoff spot.  Hey they would be the underdog Verses the Regina Pats.

Look at the LA Kings 8th place team one season and they won the Stanley Cup that year.  I am not saying the Blades will do that but it is fun to think about and dream.

Enjoy these photos.

2 Wins This Weekend.

Saskatoon faced the Brandon Wheat Kings last night. Logan Flodell was given the start in goal again. As expected it was a close game. The Blades managed the OT win. Jesse Shynkaruk scored the winner on Ukrainian night.

 The Blades still hold an 8 point cushion for that playoff spot. They are also battling injuries. Every team has to do this.  A break will do them good!!

Kirby Dach.

He was allowed to play for the Blades because of the injuries that Saskatoon has and his club team is done?? He did not let the fans down. WOW. He scored a top shelf goal and a puck through the legs goal for his 2nd of the season. He is a player to watch. He was also named 1st star of the game!!

The Blades beat Moose Jaw 4-2. Saskatoon faces the Brandon Wheat Kings tomorrow night. Kirby Dach. Round #2!!  Get excited!!
