Word has it that a group out of Quesnel has sent a letter to the CIHL league president with a proposal to restart the Quesnel Kangaroos for the upcoming season. A current Quesnel based player that played for the Stampeders is said to be behind the drive.
Should Lac la Hache and Quesnel come into the league for the 2011/2012 season, both pulling players off the Stampeder roster. There likely won't be much left of the two time league champion Stampeders. Williams Lake, for whatever reason, doesn't seem to have that many top notch senior calibre players. Too many rugby players and rodeo riders I guess.

Haven't heard that one before - at least this season...

There are a handful of big name guys rumoured to be coming out to the Stamps this year. We'll see what comes of it, but a few ex pros and a former NHL draft pick are among the potential new crop, all of whom are born and raised in WL and still live in town or have just moved back. Even with the potential for a significant loss of talent and players this team may be better then it was a year ago. So much time remains to see how all this plays out though, maybe none of it will happen.
Some of the players who look to be heading South for the Tomahawks include:
Robin Gilbert 15gm 4g 13a 17pts
Glen Camille 16gm 7g 6a 13pts
Dervy Johnny 12gm 1g 4a 5pts
Gilbert Robins 12gm 4g 1a 5pts
Sellars, William 2W 1L 5.95GAA .825SV%
This could change the "feel" of the team...No score for this post

... but I bow to Rusty's closer knowledge of the overall talent pool.
My concern would continue to be the availability of $$$$ to bring it off and we all understand how difficult it is to get individuals to commit to the time it takes to carry a winning team through a full season, playoffs and a Coy Cup.
