Blades Shut Down Raiders.

The Saskatoon Blades completed the 2 game sweep of the northern highway rivals with a 4-3 victory last night and a 5-1 effort tonight.

The Blades had a 4-0 lead in the 1st period. Brent Benson had a 3 point game as well as Jake Trask.

Adam Morrison earned the win. The Blades continue their dominant play and continue to lead the WHL. Now when was the last time someone could say that about the Blades.

The Blades record is now 28-8-0-1. 57 points

I was surprised that there was no fights but oh well.

5-1 was the final score.

Again it is quite ridiculous for a city of Saskatoon's size and the only time they draw a big crowd is when the American teams and have special promotion nights. So what are they supposed to do? Make every game have a special promotion or event? Oh I know lets make all of the Blades opponents American teams...

Just wait until later in the season and playoffs then the "cough cough" bandwagon jumpers will come.

Here is my take on the trade situation: If the Blades are not willing to trade for a Brayden Schenn or Cody Eakin then maybe they should go after Brenden Ranford from Kamloops,he is co leading the league in points. Or maybe a guy like Linden Vey. He is a Saskatchewan kid and plays centre as well.

Ryan Nuegent Hopkins,Matt Dumba and the Red Deer Rebels visit the CUC on new years day.
