Murphy rules, while Murphy's law rules in K-town...

The 613 earned some mentions in a holiday wishes column from Ryan Pyette, who covers the OHL for Sun Media.
"Retiring Ottawa 67's coach Brian Kilrea: A 2009 calendar with hockey in May. The worst goodbyes are the abrupt ones. After three decades behind the bench, surely the wily Killer will have one more long playoff run left in him this spring.

"Doug Gilmour: A heavy-duty shovel so the rookie coach can dig his Kingston Frontenacs out. The last-place Frontenacs have won just two of 13 games since the Maple Leafs great took over his hometown team on Nov. 17.

"Belleville Bulls goalie Mike Murphy: A full-time public relations assistant. He's the best goalie in the OHL, but not enough people know it."
Did everyone see the Fronts earn the distinction of most disappointing team in the OHL? It's important to burn that on your brain before management tries to claim that they were never going to be very good to begin with.

Neate,

All the best for the holiday season to you and your family. Keep up the great work in 2009! One of us still owes a beer to the other, but I can't remember which way it went. If you ever get down to the town that fiscal responsibility forgot, it's on me regardless.
