Man, was Jeff Blair a classic case of "when bad teams happen to good goalies" or what? Obviously Don McKee wasn't wrong for discounting the guy's Fresno and Baton Rouge statistics.

Two ironies here: that Odessa, whose team and system has always made its netminders look good, had such a lousy year, and that one reason Jonathan Forest did not rejoin the Mudbugs was the guy playing behind Ken Carroll was not supposed to get much time between the pipes.

I'm sure Jacks fans will enjoy this paragraph:

Blair will never forget how Muscutt saved him from hockey obscurity. Four short months ago, the 25-year-old went from Odessa, a forgotten franchise with the third-worst attendance in the league, to a community that truly relishes its hockey club.
