Redlick heading south plus CFL picks for week 3

(from sjhl.ca)

The Geneseo Knights (NCAA Div III) have announced graduating Kindersley Klippers forward Jonathan Redlick has agreed to attend their institution and play hockey for the club beginning this Fall.
Redlick, a native of Biggar SK, played 155-games over his career and finished with 57-goals and 57-assists. He had a breakout final season with 71-points in 58-games and then followed that up with a clutch playoff by scoring 9-goals and 16-assists in 21-games (3rd in league scoring).

Redlick never played Midget ‘AAA’ hockey and was often bounced around from position to position, including going from defense to the wing before Larry Wintoneak converted him to centre where he flourished over the final two plus seasons.

Glad to see Redlick continuing to play some hockey. I'm on my way out the door here this morning. We are heading to the lake and were suppost to leave at 6 but it's my girlfriend and now we're leaving at 7.

I'll leave you for the weekend with my week 3 CFL predictions.

We'll start with Calgary at Montreal. I like the way the Al's have started the season. Big wins over both Hamilton and Winnipeg have people talking. On the flip side Calgary is loaded on offence. I like Calvillo and the Al's by a touchdown. Megan is going with the Stamps.

Toronto at Edmonton. The Eskimos are picked by most to finished at the bastment in the CFL west but Ricky Ray turned in a strong week 2 preformance and that makes this one tough to pick. The Argos struggled in week 2 in a loss to the Ti-cats. Word from tsn.ca is that Michael Bishop was placed on waivers this morning... (could that mean he could be in green and white soon?...stay tuned) so Kerry Joseph will be the go to guy and that should take some pressure off. I like the Argo's to rebound from a loss with a 10 point win. Megan picked the Argo's as well.

Friday night football and BC in Winnipeg. The Lions are an unlikley 0-2 to start the season and are so are the Bombers. What most thought could have been a preview of the grey cup has turned out to be a game for 2 teams fighting to get back in the playoff race. (perhaps a little early to be talking about playoffs?) Desperation will make for a great football game and this one will be fun to watch. I take the Lions by 14. Megan has BC as well.

And finally the Riders at Hamilton. Can Durrant run the offence for an entire game and be successful? I'm getting yelled at to leave and pick the Ti-Cats and there potetnt offence by a field goal. Megan has the Riders on Friday night.

I have to get going have a great weekend.

Dupes here are my picks.

Thursday:
Toronto at Edmonton
pick: Edmonton by 9
Calgary at Montreal
pick: Calgary by 3

Friday:
BC at Winnipeg
pick: Bombers by a TD
Sask at Hamilton
pick: Riders by 14 (Cates runs a hole right through the Ti-Cats D, and the Riders D contain Lumsden. Printers sucks if big Jesse isn't going!)

And I can't believe you would stab Rider Nation in the back like that and pick the Cats over the G&W.

On that note, heard a little rumour today that Darian Durant had to be carried off the field yesterday at practice. They can't get that Bishop jersey stitched up fast enough.
