YAY no Colts for me!

Thursday, January 14, 2010

Thanks to Grrrreg for alerting me to this article. The important bit:

Barrie also added goaltender Mavric Parks from the Kitchener Rangers shortly before Monday's deadline. Parks will battle with Peter Di Salvo for the starting job, but will watch from the bench Thursday as Di Salvo gets the nod against Windsor.

Finnish goaltender Petteri Simila, who was acquired as part of the Pietrangelo trade with Niagara, will head home. Dalton McGrath, who had been Di Salvo's backup, will join a Colts affiliate team.

So that eliminates one team for me. Also.. who calls their kid Mavric?

You're welcome! The colts suck if they don't want our prospects. Hopefully the Voltigeurs will kick them in the Memorial cup! :)

Simila is going home? Like...back to Finland?

Grrrreg said...

I think so. This article was linked in a HFboards thread about him. (here)

I haven't seen anything more precise than this enigmatic "going home" phrase!

That would be hilarious if the Voltigeurs kicked their butts in the Memorial Cup :D

I heard the guys on the radio - I can't remember if it was the Spits guys (Spits were playing the Colts last night) or the Niagara guys (I had a few games on last night) - saying that they thought he was going back home to Finland. At the very least, Simila doesn't have a spot on the Colts roster. He's not listed on their site (and they just updated with their new guys). I guess he could play for one of the Junior A teams. I know some of the other OHL teams have Junior A affiliates. Or they felt maybe he would be better off going back home. He wasn't getting any playing team in the OHL.
