Thank-you Rockets for entertaining regular season & playoffs, I'm disappointed on your loss to
Seattle.

Looking forward to next season, good luck to those players in upcoming entry draft.

Its disappointing right now that when rockets needed to play their best game of the year they end up playing one of their worst. Looks like nerves got the best of them tonight. Still was a great season. Just wish it could of went on a little longer.

Looking ahead for next year already and its looking like rockets may run into a problem with having too many 20 year old

Unfortunately that's the ups & downs of major junior ice hockey, 4 year window. Trades can extend that, but then you run into giving away future players, which at this level can hurt for long time.

I think they will hit the wall when they get to play Regina Pats. Ironically, did you ever look at the roster from Seattle, over 90 percent Canadian! HUH!

Ya, Seattle isn't my favourite team, but would like them to win over Regina perhaps, and definitely over the Rockets.

If Brodan Salmond is able step it up in net it could be very interesting season. Biggest key is if veteran players & rookies can get chemistry early, since there are number of new players in the lineup.

In the BC Division only 1 team has returning starting goaltender that is Victoria (played 63 out of 72 game last season), next would be Kamloops (played 31 out of 72 games), then Kelowna (played 23 out of 72 games), lastly Vancouver (played 22 out of 72 games).

This shows for Victoria so far at 5-0

Added: oddly the team with the most returning players is the worst in BC division with 21 out of the 24 players returning that is Kamloops.

As I've already said it is far to early, wait & see how it looks at 1/3 mark (24 games in)

It's to be expected with the number of rookies in the roster. As the season goes on, if the issue is between the pipes then Bruce may need to look for a goalie. That all depends on what he is willing to give up.
