Well we’ve already been told the Brantford GM will be the Stoney Creek one and the Coach will be a fan favourite so logic says it’s Bryan Hamm.
It’s likely that Stoney Creek simply moves to Brantford to to try to host the AC.
I can see another possibility though with both Stoney Creek playing next season and already a contender to win their way back. Have a 2nd team in Brantford as host bring back the key guys and recruit like crazy which is easier with a host bid.
I have a feeling they may try to double down on a title next year. All articles mention all Blast players are expected back and big names from Kitchener and London have already been targeted. If Stoney Creek was splyvmoving to Brantford not many old Blast players could crack the lineup and few recruits would be needed. I think reading between the lines this could be the plan.
I also expect a bid from the Steelhawks they seem to be loading up.
I missed the first half of the game but both Stewart and Deveaux played on the road. If engaged they will be a force.
Stewart seemed content to pass the puck when I felt with a heavy shot he could’ve easily scored a few goals. He did also hustle back to break up a odd man rush catching up with a burst of speed being back from the other blue line and the opposition at centre ice but this effort was rare.
Deveaux looks like he will be tough to contain with his size.
Reading between the lines that's my take on it. I could see both Brantford and Stoney Creek operating for the host year. After that, who knows?
Now for a team to host next year, they need to be a registered AAA team this year. Technically, the AC page lists that Brantford was registered this year even though they didn't play so they appear to meet that requirement ok.
jimc: that is a BROKEN system, right there

doc: Going back to a thread of Don Robertson & Doug Mathieson from December relating to the number of teams that were already confirmed for this series. I see how bad the optics are, I find it very difficult doing Google searches to see what teams there are.

doc: They need to get someone to amalgamate the website to be all inclusive. Some years a city or town has a team, the next year they aren't for whatever reason. Also how does a Province take guys from defeated teams and then build an all star group.

doc: It doesn't happen in Ontario, although I am surprised to see Brett Leggat's name on the boxscore last night for Stoney Creek.

enogca: Saw that too. Looks like he was playing backup goalie to Brown.

dsvein: Blatant missed call on Stony Creek´s 5th goal. Watched it 3 times and the goal scorer was a good foot offside. Surprised Lacombe Generals didn´t protest but it probably would have fallen on deaf ears. If you have it recorded, check it out. It was obvious.

doc: Entertaining game from start to finish, even if you didn't have a favorite team playing in the final. There were fouls on both sides during the game that were not called, that's always been the nature of hockey and always will.
