At this point, though, it's cold comfort and it's still only a rumour. Whoever succeeds Mav will still have his hands tied by owner Doug Springer's penury and tactlessness.
Meantime, like every team in the OHL, the media are getting their shots in on Springer's terrible team... check out this lead from today's Ottawa Citizen:
Mavric Parks doesn't need to look down at the crest on his jersey to see he's no longer a Kitchener Ranger.
With all the rubber flying his way, Parks knows he's either in a shooting gallery ... or a Kingston Frontenac.
Ah, the refreshing candour of youth...
"It's a little bit different here ... I might face 60 shots a game," said Parks, who waived his no-trade clause to move. "That's like playing three or four games in one in Kitchener.Great... now Doug Springer's mess is comedy fodder for out-of-town newspapers too, not just blogs and message boards. It's great to be young and a Fronts fan.
"But I proved I could play with a good team, and now I have to prove I can play on a bad team."
(Former Front Cory Emmerton's prognosis isn't so hot these days either.)
