The puck drops on another WHL season tonight and there is a lot of hope in Swift Current. The Broncos have had two straight winning seasons and two straight very competitive but disappointing first round losses. They are at the other side of a rebuilding program that has built them as much depth as the program has had since Mark Lamb arrived as Coach and General Manager. Does that mean they are a championship contender? Way too soon to say. I don’t think it’s too soon to say they will be a good team and are going to play an entertaining brand of hockey.
So how good can they be? What are the question marks? Who is ready to make a jump? Prairie Post columnist and former Overtime co-host Brad Brown and I covered many of those topics in an hour long discussion previewing the Broncos’ season last night. I’m not sure how many of you will be patient enough to listen to the whole thing, but we enjoyed the conversation anyway.
