I watched the Vipers game online in Wenatchee tonight and thought newcomer Luke Gingras was one of the Vipers better players. Looks to be quick on his feet, goes to the net and created-generated several good opportunities. Has some size and likes to play physical-get in the face of the opponents.

I wonder what happened to Keith Anderson? Here is a big kid that come over from the Western Hockey League that looked fairly good early on but wasn't as noticeable lately. Was playing on the 3rd and 4th lines the past few weeks.

Lots of trades-player moves within the past few days, looks like the Vipers are adjusting their roster before the BCHL Card Deadline. Are the Vipers finished making moves? Do they have any cards left?

Glad they made this trade. A skilled forward with experience was needed. The Blades have a good coaching staff. So we know he is well coached. I've been happy with the trades so far. Mark F. is making a much better effort this year too get it right. I have said it before and I will say it again, Mark, has been to the party three times so let us relax and see what he can do. I have every confidence our vipers time will be just fine at playoff time. They will be well coached and the little hiccups we are seeing now with to many penaltys, undisciplined play,etc. will all work itself out. As fans we must have a little patience.
