    Good to see an investment in hockey ops. Step in the right direction.

    What the heck is an on ice Skills Development Coach? Sounds like a promise kept by Butler to Oulahen when he left.

    Quite common I believe. We had the most skeleton staff in the league. Just randomly chose Oshawa as a comparison.

    my thoughts as well, I think we should take what we can get. More eyes the better IMO!

    Some random ramblings as we head into the beginning of training camp:

    I like the Ryan Oulahen hire, must have missed the announcement earlier this summer. But here are 2 I would like more: former Battalion and NB area product Ken Peroff Asst Coach GUE, and Lee Jinman former Centennial, assigned to prospects only, both on and off the ice with SAG or FLT (can’t remember which).

    Thanks to SNLDP for pointing out the presence of a pre-season roster, didn’t realize it existed. Is this the team for the upcoming season? I notice Coach said non-roster players will be sent home after camp, and since this is called a roster, maybe there will be no additions or subtractions. Personally I think we have enough 1 and 2 goal scorers, maybe it is time to move on from Patrick Brown and Kurtis Evans and give someone else a chance. It seems most teams treat this info. differently, some list returnees only, no draft choices, some have draft choices in the mix. The only 2 teams who approach it properly are SAG and OSH, each of these list 40-50 players with all the data, including how and when acquired.

    Ryan O’Rourke (D, SSM) seems to be getting some early notice for the next NHL draft, 2nd round maybe. ‘Hounds took him at 20, maybe he might have been worthy of consideration at 9 instead of the Pacer. I know I should leave this one alone, but I can’t seem to.

    A couple of executive moves by other teams caught my attention, Jeff Twohey to KGN and Marty Williamson to BAR. Not sure of the scope of these positions but they appear to be a layer of responsibility between GM and ownership. Colts have implemented a sports science department and Gens did a major reno to players’ area, very impressive. Don’t imagine any of these will come this way any time soon, but I like the addition of a strength coach by the Battalion.

    Ah, pre-season time and fans' hearts are pitter-patter over what the newest Battalion version will pan out to be. I often think of the Bert Templeton years, who was a believer in a three-year cycle for his teams, where it was start-over time in year one - improving in all departments for year two, and then going all out to advance as far as possible in year three. The Battalion brain-trust apparently are not big believers of that schedule. Apart from some success in years one and two, the last four have been miserable disappointments. Will our hardcore fans ever see them "go for it" again?

    A 4th place finish and home ice in year three can’t be too disappointing. The 2001, ‘02, ‘03 born look pretty good, so 2020-21,22,23 look like they can be good years for the battalion.

    3rd rounder Justin Ertel not in camp? (not in the program anyway.)
    I think he was at the spring session.

    We are a little light on the 2000 birth year. (19-20 year olds). Only Henderson on 'D'. Think this will be a problem?
