from the Seattle Times

The Seattle Thunderbirds will have to face a gruesome road trip through the East Division without leading scorer Aaron Gagnon.

Gagnon severely separated his shoulder early in the 2-1 shootout defeat Tuesday to Saskatoon and is out indefinitely.

"Gags being out is a problem," Sumner said as the team's bus traveled to Regina in minus-20 degrees. "But where there are problems there are opportunities, and that's how our guys have to look at it."

Sumner said he will put Prab Rai, 17, who was acquired in a trade with Prince George at the Christmas break, in Gagnon's spot centering the first line alongside Bud Holloway and Jan Eberle.

"Prab has such a high skill level and sees the ice so well that he's only a little assertiveness short of being great player," Sumner said. "Once he gets a little more experience and confidence, he's a player who can impact games."

Man this Swanson character is a loser. You label this kid a quitter but all this kid did was see the ship was sinking and got out. No different than when we quit a job when the company is going downhill.

He has unreal skill but like all others that come to PG, they realize the city is great and travel is part of the game but having a loser as an owner and GM speaks volume for how the organization is run.

If I was a player for the Cougars I would be embarassed. Why? To have your owner rummage through the garbage and yell at the kids after they lost!!! Please pick me play for your team!! NOT!!!

so what is the real story ....they write in the paper Prab is getting no ice time in Seattle and now the Seattle head coach is blowing sunshine.....what is up with the sudden change of attitude...how does the new kid go from no ice time to centering the first line....the only line Seattle is worrying about playing as the comintator said from Chilliwack, is now lost without gagnon...and now their new boy has turned into a superstar overnite..amazing how coaches can build a player up even when they know he is not there yet...if Prab is such a strong player, why did seattle not give him a regular shift before gagnons injury...talk about take a kid from rags to riches overnite...to bad it takes an injury for players to be given a chance..after all GM's and head coaches are the ones who chose their team and then they do not give them ice time...why do they pick them if they have no intention of playing them unless they are in a crisis situation...it really is a joke to listen to their babble and bull*****t

So what you are saying is that you should keep getting yelled at and getting treated like **** and hope that you get your chance to be a golden whipping boy one day.

just face the facts man, the ship has sunk, don't take all this kids down with you.

a quitter is a quitter, just look at your handle, the worst, absolutely worst player that ever played in the whl.
