At the end of the day the league jumped gun a bit fast on this and CANCELLED the season , if they postoned it like other sports and then the season was done then we may have had a say in it, but the big word is CANCELLED, unfortunatly..
However given I believe the Devils had the highest league winning % throughout the entirety of the season even though Steelers rode the top on games played for the majority it is a demonstration of Devils consistency in being the top team throughout a long enough period to justify being labelled champions.
Even if Devils are not listed as having won any of the domestic trophies they can still lay claim to being national champions of the UK through the 19/2O season and hence awarded the CHL place as such.
I have a lot of sympathy for those players. Someone like Shoane Morrisonn could have raised his first professional title. Fan drivel aside on a personal level you have to feel for the guys as it must be such a ‘what if’ feeling.
When a top top player says, he is thrilled to be back, dont that just give you a lift. This club has come so far in such a short time, and it’s a pure joy to be part of it. These are really lousy days at the moment, so when you hear something that is uplifting and you think how neat this club is now, then that’s a pure boost. Take good care all.Happy Hockey Days.
