    I heard all this as well, something about when he got back from the WJHC's that he was not getting along with his teammates in the OHL.

    Maybe in Syracuse he found out he's not playing 16-20 year olds anymore, he's playing men now, and they way he plays (Sean Avery style) maybe something or someone scared him off up in the AHL, who know's really, I know he does like to yap alot, like Avery.

    I hate to rip on Avery but who would want an Avery-like-reputation?

    Legein is not nearly as bad as Avery when it comes to the talking and the antics but he does have an Avery-like element to his game.

    He was one of my favorites his draft year, really a shame, hopefully he changes his mind.

    Avery can produce, IMO. Hes a good player to have on your team, whether you like him or not.

    I wasn't referring to his scoring ability, which I agree he can score. The question was why would someone want his reputation and he is known as an agitator. So I was only referring to that side of his game and why someone would want to have the reputation of an agitator.

    From the games I have watched him play in, most times he seems to be talking alot out there, I dont think he's making dinner plans for after the game.

    I do agree to a point though, he's not as bad, he still likes to smack talk though, he does not try starting shit in the warm though like Avery does.

    Oh I know, he does talk a lot but I don't see a lot of the other antics Avery brings (ie - diving, cheap shots, starting shit in warm-ups).

    No, no, he's does not do all that shit I agree, the odd cheap shot, but nothing like Avery.

    In the eyes of the NHL, you dive once, and get a penatly for it, you go on "the list".

    The Hockey News ranks the OHL logos.

    IMO the Colts logo should be #1.

    Doesn't sound like Legein is actually going to completely retire from hockey, sounds like he may just be burned out and needs some time off to rest and recouperate, so he's skipping CBus' camp. that's what I'm hearing, anyway.

    You probably don't want to know. It involves Sheldon Kennedy, his coach, and sexual abuse and harrassment.

    Wolves
    Spitfires
    Generals
    Petes
    Greyhounds
    Spirit
    Knights
    Sting
    Rangers
    Majors
    Bulls
    Frontenacs
    Storm
    IceDogs
    Whalers
    Battalion
    Attack
    Otters
    67's- they really need to bring back there old logo, the one that said 67's on the front , this new one they have is bad.

    That would be gagne. Him Jake and Thomas Stajan are pretty tight. My buddies are Terreri, Pereira, Lacombe. Terreri is signed with the Ice Dogs for this year, Pereira was drafted by Brampton but he's weighing his scholarship options, and Lacombe was offered a spot with Sarnia.

    Yeah he did. He's got a ton of offers on the table so he might head back to St. Mikes and play for the Buzzers for one more year.

    I see, so he will have to make his mind up by Sunday then, cause if he even plays one pre-season game in the OHL all his scholarship options go out the window.

    If it was me, it would not even be an option, it would be the OHL hands down, much better hockey, and way more games, better shot at the NHL as well.
