Getting cut

I was planning to take in the Islanders Training Camp tonight at Credit Union Centre.  As you can see from the screen shots below, the practice schedule has been posted on the Credit Union Centre website here.  These screen shots were taken Thursday morning.


imageWhen I called out to Credit Union Centre today to confirm the times, I was told that they were not practicing tonight and when I said, “Your website says that they are scheduled to practice tonight.”  I was told, “Your mistaken” and the phone was hung up before I could say that I was looking at the website right now.  It seems kind of weird for an event this high profile, Credit Union Centre wouldn’t be able to keep it’s website current or even list the morning practices correctly.  Not a great job on their part.

New York Islanders Training Camp

John Tavares of the New York Islanders

Well the New York Islanders are in Saskatoon for training camp this week.  As expected, John Tavares looks to be the Islanders best player.  The problem is that he is only 18 years old which can’t be a good sign for the Islanders in 2009-2010.  Despite being only marginally better than a good AHL team, it is good to see NHL hockey in Saskatoon. 

The plan is to take in the practice on Thursday at Credit Union Centre.  I’ll be the guy in the Calgary Flames jersey.
