Hey Steve, it’s been a bit quiet on here this off season, and we know and understand things have been tough on you of late.

So maybe it is time for you to wind up a few of us on here?

Up for some fun?

Want to throw us some hooks with bait on?

Well I've been called out!!! Fair enough. Seven members of our team have been announced already. That leaves 14 more to go. We already know that Hoth and Drooooooooooooo have moved on so that means at least two new recruits. So what can I tell you at this stage? I can tell you that the recruiting has been going extremely well. I can tell you that once again, turnover is going to be relatively small. More than just the two we know but certainly not a mass exodus. I can tell you that players that likely would not have considered our team or our league four years ago are now looking to play for us and will be playing for us. I can tell you that I CAN NOT wait for the season to start already! So no, there have not been any veiled clues hidden in anything I've said but I hope this general flavour will help you all get through your June doldrums!

My two punts are;

General = army = cannon (bit of a long shot) = Patrick Cannone
https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/15071/patrick-cannone
Still pretty active with the wild/AHL so it would be a massive coup but Steve has the contacts.

or

Flavour = Cook = Brendan Cook
https://www.eliteprospects.com/player/15717/brendan-cook
The more likely one, played for Panthers and Clan but didn't play last year. He's listed as retired but having a year out then signing for the Devils seems to be a common thing. Impressive numbers where ever he's been

It's easy...

think of famous British military men...

General Montgomery = Kevin Montgomery

Admiral Nelson = Levi Nelson
I’m not sure on Montgomery

Nelson would be a good pick up and hopefully be rejuvenated in a new environment - however, if he’s already signed I’m surprised the news hasn’t yet leaked.....

Arguably the most famous Canadian General of all time is General OTTER. Thinking laterally, the brilliantly named Brock TrOTTER could be an option? Hasn't played much in recent years, but played a couple of NHL games for Montreal, has over 200 AHL games (0.80 point average), and a good point scoring record (circa 0.75 average) in the KHL and Liiga.

Also played with Joey Haddad (albeit briefly) for Hamilton Bulldogs in 2011-12.

"Trotter is a player with good offensive instincts. Has fine vision and playmaking ability. Handles the puck well in traffic and down low. Can play any forward position. Could improve his speed and defensive acumen.
- Erik K. Piri, EP (2010) "
