    The first thing that came to my mind was team issues because of the timing and trajectory of the team as well. I think the timing stinks but I do wish Owen nothing but the best.

    You are allowed to sign and play in the ECHL and the AHL for up to 18 months before losing your OHL funded scholarship. He could play his over-age season in Erie next year, then play in the ECHL or AHL for another season then go back to school to play CIS hockey. There is no question that his educational needs are going to be covered, the real question is why now????

    I think the Lakers will miss his offensive ability, but defensively, he has a ways to go. Forces to many plays and turns the puck over too often. That's just a product of being so young. Definitely improved over last year. Needed another year of junior at a higher level such as the BCHL or USHL, but the Lakers would never have gotten him if they didn't take him a year early. Where the Lakers will really miss him is next year and the year after if he continued to improve as he has this year.

    I agree but the Lakers have a tough time keeping higher caliber player's 3 or 4seasons.

    Cole Hults is having a very good year at Madison of the USHL and should be an excellent replacement for Headrick when he comes in next season. Yeah it will take him some time to adjust to the college game, but he's really elevated his play to another level at Madison this season. I think he'll be "over-ready" to play with the Lakers next season, as Damon likes to say. Yeah it hurts to lose Headrick, especially at this point in the season, but assuming Cole Hults comes in as planned next season I think we'll be OK.

    Get a grip, man. If you don't like it you don't have to read it. Like you I woke up in a free country this morning, complete with the freedom of speech. Owen Headrick is going to have success wherever he goes, and all Laker fans should wish the kid luck.

    Try not to be so bitter down there, keep waving the flag for the good ship Laker, someday it might actually pay off for you, man.

    Big weekend again. Lakers cannot lose games at home with only ten games left to go . You hate to lose players like Owen but an offer had to be made to him that he felt was the right way to go.

    They cannot split points with a last place team but that just occurred. The offer was always there so the only other thing that was changed had to be within the walls of the Laker hockey program.

    Erie has been after him since before he became a Laker. Although there may have always been an offer there, they may have sweetened the pot or otherwise have enticed him to leave the Lakers. I don't know what ultimately caused him to change his mind. It doesn't necessarily mean it was something within the program. It might be something as simple as he didn't have the interest and dedication to complete his education at this point in his life even though, as JNACC indicated, he was doing OK academically. He may have looked at it from the viewpoint that he could play hockey for Erie without also worrying about keeping up with academics. It could also be that his family encouraged him to go the college hockey route and he went along with them, but now he's decided he just doesn't want to do college anymore.

    Shayne is also too small to be an effective NHL defenseman I take it?

    Did you even read what I wrote? I said "at this point". If he works hard and develops well he could be in a couple years. Shayne is on a completely different level than Owen right now.

    Nope. I didn't even bother.

    At some point in the future do you expect Owen to be taller?

    I didn't see where he said he was too short.

    Methinks CKrouth will take Whitten's and the University's talking points every time, man.

    There is and will be an effort to pigeonhole Owen as they have with other players who have abandoned the good ship Laker. In Owen's case he is going into a much better situation for his future playing career, development, and a much more professional coaching staff. The scouts know a good prospect when they see one, and more will be seeing him in much much higher quality of play and competition than the likes of Alabama Huntsville or Alaska Anchorage.

    Nice win! Henke is on a roll right now. 11 points in his last 7 games with at least a point in all of them. Nice to see Correale score as he was in a goal drought.

    Especially big win after having lost the lead in the 3rd period. Also good to see Hults get back in the scoring column. It would be nice to get Torrel going again also.

    At least Torrel stayed out of the penalty box last night. He has taken too many dumb penalties that negated a power play lately.
