It was really nice watching a much better brand of ice hockey at the Cox Convention Center Arena this year than the goon-like hockey which nearly killed me as a hockey fan watching the old CHL.
The Oklahoma City Barons were truly be a blessing to hockey fans in the OKC area. Now, we just have to build up the fan base. Playing Houston, Texas (Austin), San Antonio, Milwaukee and Chicago was much better than playing some of those unfamiliar cities in the CHL. Let's hope that Tulsa and Wichita will join the AHL in the future.
