WHO IS TO BLAME ?

What seems to be the problem, another Viper loss on the road 7-1
The defence has not improved since Sept., NO muscle, No speed, NO DESIRE,
is there a lack of leadership on and off the ice?

Was in the casino two weeks ago & there were two Vipers, playing the machines.
whats up with that, should they not be at the gym. I know Mark Ferner did not allow this to happen. What else is going on behind closed doors.

Only 10 more games,lets get it over with so we can go home.
Maybe we need Vanderkamp back.

Should we be pointing fingers?

It's funny how Vipers fans are upset that their team is in 5th place still in the running for a playoff spot.

Every team has rebuilding years... all fans have to put up with bad seasons. But The Vipers aren't even doing that poorly.

You know these players have lives outside of hockey too right? They don't need to be at the gym or the rink 24/7

Hockey is a sport and SPORTS is "ALL about WINNING"

Standings, points, statistics, records, medals, trophies

Odd how the rest of my comment didn't show up??? oh well

(the rest that didn't register)

Why bother keeping track of this stuff (Standings to Trophies) if it's not about winning?

I have never met a fan especially a fanatic that wanted his/her team to lose. But this is a messed up world! Maybe they're out there?... I just can't understand why a fan WOULD want his/her team to lose though?

hmmmm... "Fans" that care for their team, want to see them win! Like me, some voice their opinion on what they see wrong with the team and hope that it gets fixed! If this is viewed as "being a poor sport or not dealing with losing very well???". I say that is a wrong accusation. If I see something "broken or not working" it needs to be fixed and remedied.
"cheerleaders" Well, it don't matter to them, win or lose, they have only nice words to say, or nothing at all and are more than willing to put on their pom-pom's and "rah rah rah, Go Vipers go!!!" and hope, just believe and hope some more...

This is so easy...I know who is to blame

February 15 2012, 9:17 PM 

It is all the Salmon Arm fans running down to Vernon to watch better hockey. The clowns don't have enough sense to carry on to Kelowna..ie Prospera Place

I expect that Everett fans will pay the freight to send Ferner back to Vernon. Silvertips are harder to charm than snakes.

Not Buying Crap

February 23 2012, 5:08 PM 

Have to totally disagree with the "rebuilding" line of thinking. That is so not true. Any worthwhile organization, which the Vernon franchise truly is, knows that you are building all the time. They know that people will move through the team and therefore are always looking at where weak links and strong leaders are. Yes, Vernon just came off three incredible years. But that doesn't mean they are rebuilding. If they had that mentality they wouldn't be the powerhouse franchise they are. Unfortunately for them this year the "gold" they thought they were getting didn't pan out and the weak links outnumbered the strong leaders. Having said that they are still in the running for a playoff spot which they probably will miss by a point of two. Not bad for an off year.

Vandy is all yours

February 15 2012, 12:25 PM 

You can have Vandekamp back ,PLEASEEEEE. He hasn't helped Clippers much . Trades away good players for bad. Cyr for Chessa was a real bad mistake. Cyr was heart and soul of team. Chessa is not as near as good as Cyr. Colton has been named Stars of the game for Vernon quite a few times. I'd also take all three of Fitzgerald triplets over Trevor Fitzgerald . Same thing, those triplets are doing very well in Prince George and somebody said that those guys were too small for the Clippers. Trevor is another one that takes too many stupid penalties . Cost team a win in Duncan Saturday night. I have nothing against the kid cause I'm sure he is a real nice guy off and on the ice. Only good thing is his face off ability and a guy from PR named J.P Villeneuve beat him quite handly every time they faced off against each other.

One last thing, Vandy doesn't treat his veteran players with respect (trading Cyr, shipping Lowenberger in Junior B, Jaw sitting in the stand and one day decided to move on).

I wish the Clippers all the best of luck for the remaining of the season. Would be nice to see them in the playoffs.

GO CLIPPERS GO!!!!!

Vander and Vernon coach let two good kids go

February 15 2012, 11:23 PM 

Surrey made out well. Got Jaw from Nanaimo and Hagen has been on fire with his two mates since he came over from Vernon in early December. Thanks both to the Clippers and Vipers coaches for two good kids that have helped their Eagle team. I am sure these two kids are liking their new scenery. Coaches just dont get the correct chemistry going for some of these kids....
Hagen especially has been successful and has a NCAA school he will suit up for.....

Vipers and Clips help Eagles

February 26 2012, 10:34 AM 

Thanks to the Vipers and Clippers. Eagles received two decent players who have helped Eagles sit on top of the Coastal Div. for now. We will see what happens over the next two weeks. Hagen just came from nowhere (Vernon) and plays on what Surrey fans call one of the best lines in the BCHL. Hagens line on Friday night were in all three star selections. Alex was third star, Robert Lindores second star and Sean McGoverni first star. This line has scored a ton over the last six weeks. Nanaimo on this night played well but just not quite strong enough. Jaw on Saturday night was Surrey top gun with two goals against Alberni and was the games first star. Both Vernon and Nanaimo could use these guys but gave up on them.

Nanaimo did not give on Jaw. He was injured and I guess the Clippers weren't convinced he would be able to play up to his abilities because of the shoulder and left him on their AP list, not losing a roster spot until he healed. He then decided to play closer to home.

Where do you get your ideas from,outer space? I never said anything of the kind, go back and check the previous posts before you spout. Jaw had out quite awhile before he decided to leave for Surrey.Vandy said he was waiting for Jaw to get back into the line-up.

Who is to blame?

February 27 2012, 12:13 PM 

I blame Mark Ferner. He went and won the league three years in a row and had the nerve to win two Royal Bank Cups. By doing that, most of the players on those teams moved on to better things, like scholarships, and the Vipers were left with a very young team. And Ferner also skipped out of town. It's all Ferner's fault. If he had have built an average, or poor, team we'd be way better off than we are.
