    Good for Tanner…not so good for the Red Devils mind you. You could see this coming from OUTSIDE of the arena…let alone inside, sitting in the stands. Barrie’s gain is our loss but hey!!! This is what it’s all about…makin’ it. And Tanner Cole will. [no emergency brake involved in his climb and momentum as he scales the ladder to a great future in the game. Enjoy Barrie.
