During his introductory comments Kevin Lowe indicated that he had never been to Portage and Main when it was so warm to which Dale Hawerchuk replied “if he thinks its warm here today it is going to heat up in October”.
Hawerchuk indicated that players like Phil Housley, Paul MacLean, Randy Carlyle & Scott Arniel wanted to play but have NHL coaching commitments.
Both Hawerchuk and Lowe said that they expect to make a few further additions in the future. With the Jets needing two goalies perhaps we see a return of Pokey and the Bandit.
