Well, it's a done deal. Wichita is staying for at least another year, Indy is moving to Topeka, and because Horn Chen owns both teams, the league is allowing him to transfer one Ice player to the Thunder roster.
So please welcome, at center for head coach Derek Laxdal's squad... Jim Shepherd.
Of course, he's not available 'til Game 3.
Yeah yeah, April Fool's. It was either that or, "Tony Martino named Rayz head coach." Could the space between the lines in that story be any bigger? If the owner wanted the current head coach 100% and the coach wanted his current job 100%, we wouldn't be talking about this, right?
