The critics will be out tonight telling their friends and fellow fans we should have traded Josh Brook for the future of the franchise.  

Moose Jaw Warriors GM Alan Millar chose to keep our captain.  You can bet at least a couple of upper echelon WHL teams made offers to get him.  Millar chose to make our team better right now, acquiring two talented players, adding scoring and depth.  We picked up Swift Current Broncos' leading scorer Alec Zawatzky and forward Carson Denomie from Kamloops.

This gives our hockey team three solid forward lines that can compete with most in the league and, perhaps, take a shot at knocking off the 1st place Prince Albert Raiders when the playoffs roll around.

If he had traded our captain you can bet the players on our team would have seen that as giving up on them and the season.  Instead, I think our top guys will take this as a vote of confidence and play with passion down the home stretch and into the playoffs.

For what it's worth, I'm a believer.
