In a Thursday edition of the Sin Bin (back to Tuesdays, starting next week), Jon Sloan steps in to discuss the proposal to convert a reservoir into a youth sports complex in Seattle. Plus, the hosts talk NHL and WHL playoffs, including some key games to watch in the coming days.

NHL PLAYOFFS

Will the defending champion Los Angeles Kings make it back to the post season? Will the Ottawa Senators edge out the Boston Bruins for a wildcard? What are the key match-ups to watch over the next few days?

ROOSEVELT COMMUNITY SPORTS CENTER

A continuing theme on the Sin Bin is the development of hockey at the grass roots level in the Pacific Northwest, which is necessary for the long term success of any NHL franchise that comes to Seattle. If you ask local hockey fans what the biggest piece of that development is, most would tell you that we need more ice rinks.

One idea to address this is the proposed Roosevelt Community Sports Center, which, among several other things, would add three new rinks in northeast Seattle in the land currently occupied by the Roosevelt Reservoir.

WHL PLAYOFFS

We take a look at the upcoming playoff series between the Seattle Thunderbirds and Portand Winterhawks, between the Everett Silvertips and the Spokane Chiefs, and between the Tri City Americans and ... ugh ... the Kelowna Rockets.
