After an incredible start to the season in Deer Lake, it seems as thought the WCSHL has hit a bit of trouble on weekend #2. It appears as if the Mariners-Royals game is cancelled, but the Red Wings-Jets game is still going ahead. The "weather" excuse doesn't pass the sniff test with one game still going ahead. What gives?

In my opinion the Royals are not trying to help this league become successful. They have no promotion of the team, I live in Corner Brook and there seems to be zero excitement about the return of the team and now they do this.

7-3 Jets after the second. Over 1000 in attendance. Great start for the Jets on all fronts!

It was 8-3 Jets with 5 mins left in the 3rd when I headed home. 50/50 was $1400 and it was pretty much sold out. That is two huge crowds for the 1st two games of the season. I seen more hits in the 1st period than the entire season watching the Royals in the CWSHL. This could be a great league if all the teams get on board to make it happen.

With respect to the PAB vs. CB game, there is a storm blowing through the area right now. Understanding is that road condition/high winds in the Wreckhouse are preventing traffic from passing through.

Completely incorrect! Vehicles and transport trucks were on the road right up to 6am. Wreckhouse was perfect! It was a beautiful night and one truck driver commented that it was one of the nicest he's had in a while. There was absolutely no reason the Royals weren't able to make that game!

Seems like the royals will do whatever is convenient for them.. PAB fans are Dying to get out and watch a game of hockey in their own barn.

All I'm saying is that as far as weather goes, yesterday there were blizzard warnings in effect for the west coast. Everyone knows what the Wreckhouse is like and how fast it can whip up out there.

Presently: Equipment has been taken off the roads at various points between Deer Lake and Port aux Basques and travelers are being advised to stay off the highway due to heavy snow and poor visibility. Both games tonight may be cancelled.
