After just executing a blockbuster deal that landed Rudy Gay, perhaps it was too much to expect another one for the Raptors at Thursday’s trade deadline. The Raptors failed to find a taker for perennial disappointment and franchise defining bust Andrea Bargnani.
The UCC Blues Varsity Hockey team has a lot to prove this year. Starting the pre-season with last year’s championship still in the back of our minds we knew we would need to come out storming. We started with four games, all exhibition, two against Ridley and two against Appleby. Both are regular season rivals. We were lacking numbers, weakened by the football players on our team, and we had plenty of call-ups from the JV squad. After the four games we were still winless, losing twice and tying twice. They are both teams we conquered last year on our way to becoming regular season and playoff champions, however they proved to be better than last year.
