    Not really a problem as such, just that a player signing with a ECHL team was given precedent over amateur athletes at the Canada Games. I'm familiar with Brandon's success at the Q, he very well may end up in the AHL or even the NHL, but odds are he unfortunately won't. I predict a nice story in 2-4 years of him returning to NL and playing Senior Hockey, or it would be great to see Memorial suck it up and get a Hockey team with him on it!..Oh, Bob...what am I supposed to "take"?.thanks for your contribution to the discussion.

    A ECHL signing gets a story over any other athlete/team at the Canada Games? Which uncle or aunt of his works at the press?!

      Hey Brian, what is your problem. The young fellow Hynes comes from a small community on Nfld's Northern Peninsula, has had a successful career in the Q and give him credit for that. You never know the young fellow may make the jump from the ECHL to the AHL, and then you never know. Good luck Brandon, all the best, go for it. Oh yeah Brian I forgot to mention that I am not related to him, I am a townir from St. John's.
