Geoffrion: "AHL is like the new NHL"
After a whirlwind pre-season that saw them open training camp in Sherbrooke, the Hamilton Bulldogs are getting set to open the regular season tonight in Grand Rapids against the Griffins.
Blake Geoffrion, who was knocking at the door with the Canadiens last season, now has his sights set on the start of the AHL season, and is looking forward to the opportunity of playing in what he calls the "new NHL" as a result of the fact that the old NHL remains in lockout mode.
I caught up to Blake this morning from Grand Rapids, on Dave's World. Listen in as he talks about the start of the American Hockey League season, the Major League Baseball post-season, and the ball team he embraced, from his playing days with the Nashville Predators.
