State of Hockey News: Aeros have high hopes for 12-13

The State of Hockey News did a very good feature on the Aeros in their most recent edition.
I am not going to take away from the authors on this, so please, do yourself a favor and read this now.

We can debate it later, but I'd be lying if I said that I was not excited about seeing the team on the ice this October.

The Wild finally have some home-grown talent in Houston, and it will be good to see how they all jell under John Torchetti.

I come from the school that you need at least two savvy vets to make a deep run in the playoffs. But teams like the Philadelphia Phantoms from a few years back show that you can do it without guys like DiSalvatore and Ortmeyer.

Speaking of Ortmeyer and Mike Modano, maybe Mill can sign those guys to AHL deals ...

And on that joke/note, read the article and let me know what you think.

Signing Orts wouldn't be a joke, it would be a good move if Mill can pull it off. Make Orts the "C".

The increase in offense will be a welcome relief. It's been years since we had a team that could score throughout the year.

The lockout, if it goes for long, will hurt the Aeros as they will get fewer people than a lot of other teams.

Now, if we can just get those people in Minnysohta to keep their hands off our guys for once.... ;)

Any news on the talks between the Aeros and Toyota Center?
