The urban legend going around Kingston is that Frontenacs owner Doug Springer was heard saying the other day, "The Voyageurs must have had a really terrible season. Is that why the league is punishing by making them play all these extra games?"
Forgive Springer for that one; a Kingston junior hockey team being one win away from the league championship series is just such an alien concept to him. (The Ontario Junior Hockey League's Voyageurs are up 3-1 in the league semi-final with Huntsville.)
Relax, that is just a way to introduce the video tribute that MisterDB of Fronts Talk put together for Kinger.
It is beyond the pale to divine the intent of headline writers, but there are two ways to take the headline in the Kingston Whig-Standard's advancer, "Owner ensures Vees can have shot at glory." One is that it's simply capturing the spirit of the thing; for this site's purposes, it can be read as a thinly veiled shot at the owner of the city's other junior hockey team, the one which is No. 2 in its market.
Let it be said Doug Springer also ensures the Frontenacs can have a shot at glory. There's some glory in being in the running for the No. 1 or No. 2 overall draft choice, right?
