These last few weeks I have been doing something I really couldn’t do much of last season, and that is watching the Steelers on the road. Last season due to my commitments with running a football team, I was only able to watch the guys in Belfast.
I know it’s been a while since my words of wisdom (or is that nonsensical rubbish?) adorned the site, but when you have covered most angles already then you need to find a fresh approach to things.
One month on, and I thought it was about right to have an assessment of the new era of my beloved Sheffield Steelers. No longer Ben Simon’s Sheffield Steelers but Ryan Finnerty’s Sheffield Steelers and Finnerty in his rookie year as a player-coach.
When Braehead Clan announced the signing of playmaking forward Jade Galbraith from the Nottingham Panthers, I must admit that I still feel jealous about it.
This morning, Cardiff Devils completed their squad and also their 10 man import quota with the re-signing of the crowd favourite “Big Bad” Brad Voth.
