  1. I forget just how many players have gone through OKC in the past 3 years. This was a oh my goodness, I forgot about him or I’m glad he’s still playing, but mostly, OMG that’s a lot of players. Nice job on the article and keeping track of them.

  2. I think McFaull has signed on with the University of Saskatchewan Huskies. Still dying to know where Rajala thought he was going …

    1. Sure enough, thanks for the heads up on McFaull. I’m really curious about Rajala as well. Crazy to think he didn’t have something lined up already.

  3. This definitely isn’t the old CHL, where Joe Burton and Dougie Lawrence would stick around for a decade.

    I’m curious as to what kind of impact this revolving door has had on attendance and support, since coming up with a local face for the team is difficult. For example, Teubert was starting to become a recognizable figure, from my perspective (even if Edmonton fans saw him as a Jamarcus Russell bust).
