As I sit here and type this letter, I’m trying to remember what it was we used to do for entertainment prior to the Everett Silvertips enriching our lives. It all started with the inaugural season, leading up to the amazing run in the playoffs. No one in their wildest dreams would have expected the team to accomplish the things they accomplished last year.
The second season brought high expectations along with a larger following of fans. The 2004-2005 season fell short of what they accomplished last year, but they gave us a lot of fond memories to hold on to until the start of next season. These young men have nothing to be ashamed of. They played their hearts out, and should hold their heads up high.
We will miss Mitch, Alex and Tyler and wish them success in future endeavors. The talent that the Silvertips have coming back next year is amazing. This team has the tools to get into the playoffs again next year without a doubt. Thanks again, Everett Silvertips, for letting us go along for another amazing ride through the WHL. To quote a famous hockey announcer, “Book-em Dano, hockey season over.”
See you in October!
