Congrats to the Colorado Eagles of the Central Hockey League for not only clinching the playoffs, but also the Northwest Division title. So there is still going to be hockey worth watching in Colorado come playoff time, just not in Denver.
Oh, and if you don’t know anything about the Colorado Eagles, not only do they have one of the all time best minor league players (no, that is not an oxymoron) in Greg Pankewicz, but this year’s CHL All Star Game was between the Eagles and the rest of the league, and the Eagles won. Actually, the Eagles spanked them. The Eagles have won the Championship twice in their six years in the league (of 15 or so teams, no like the six in the IHL).
