Russell a good nhl d man but the rest NHL ranking in brackets Helm 9 goals ranks (247) 17 assists (252) +- (181) Ennis 15 g (162 ) 19 a (227) +- (88) Dorsett 12 g (198 ) 8 a (448 ) +- (798) better check up on the word elite more like average at best. Wouldnt be bragging how they were molded into NHl players speed is what got them to the show obviously not high end offense

His quote, referring to Russell: "WJC standout, named CHL d-man of the year, and now NHL defenceman." As far as Russell's play at the junior level is concerned, that's about the very textbook definition of 'elite'.

Nowhere did hoople say that Russell was an elite NHL d-man. In fact, if you've been paying attention, hoople has said time and again that he doesn't even watch the NHL. Quit changing the goal-posts in this argument.

Did you know that you can actually respond to a message by clicking on the 'respond to this message' link underneath the post which you would like to respond to?

Russell and helm were both WJC standouts and were both taken in the 8th round, or in that ballpark. Keetley and Dorsett both were undrafted out of the bantam. All four of those guys were instrumental in the team winning a WHL championship. The day moose jaw can win a WHL championship with two 8th rounders and two undrafted bantam prospects leading the team come back and let me know. For that matter let us know when they ever win anything.

Also russell was a two time WHL defencemen of the year, CHL defencemen of the year and a WHL player of the year and was twice a WJC standout. At this level it doesn't get any more elite. Far more elite than anyone who ever put on the warriors uniform only to be relieved to be out of it.

no response to the 10 years you missed the post season lol most hat fans have amnesia when it comes to that . you made it sound like these guys were transformed into big time NHL'ers when at best the may be average.

In the 17 seasons from 1984-85 until 2000-01, the mighty Warriors finished above .500 a total of five times. And until this season, had only won 9 playoff series since 1994. In other words, mediocre in their best years, and complete doormats in their worst.

because your statement was so stupid there was no point responding to you.

The tigers missed the playoffs 5 years in a row there scholar. They also have two memorial cups, five WHL championships. What has your team ever won?

While our esteemed Mensa candidate from MJ is technically wrong, of course...


92-97 (and 03/04) weren't exactly banner years for the Tigers.

It WAS basically a decade + exercise in futility for the world's greatest junior hockey franchise. Winning one playoff series in 12 years isn't something many CHL franchises can match. Certainly not MJ. Hell, even Parker won ONE in Regina!

See, you win again... MH is even the best when it comes to being bad for long periods of time!

They won the WHL Championship that year.

Yes the tigers had 5 years of mediocrity followed by 5 years of missing the playoffs. They've also just had a great decade of hockey winning to whl championships. Add in some great years in the early 70's and two more whl championships and two memorial cups in the 80's and that makes them an elite franchise. Top three in the history of the league. I have no idea how you can try to continue to argue otherwise. But continue on believing that moose jaw is better if it makes you feel good inside.

I seriously doubt that you're convincing anyone but steven from moose jaw.
