    I LOVED Mike Krushelnyski when he played for the Oilers in the 80s!

    Woah! What an interesting thought! So far, according to this thread, we have Violetta, Jessica Dube, Sinead Kerr, Amanda Evora, Marcy Hintzman and Shae. I wonder.

    She started following former Montreal Canadien/Detroit Red Wings Mathieu Dandenault on Twitter the other day...

    Oh yes, of course...that's probably it!

    I'm also annoyed by the way the show is releasing the names of the skaters...I don't like the "teaser" strategy AT ALL. Just tell us already.

    That makes two of us. I always wondered how she would do with someone who was a bit ... bulkier, stronger -- a Hockey Player!

    Well, whoever Sinead's partner ends up being, he hopefully looks good in a kilt!

    I'm SOOOOO glad Shae is back! Wouldn't be BOTB without her! And M-F! What a fierce competitor! Happy to see Sinead and the rest (really). Kazakova? Who would have thought? This is shaping up to be exciting!

    Wow,Kazakova! And yay for Shae!

    On another note, there are a lot of errors in some of the info they've posted. Almost every date in Dubé's bio on the site is wrong and earlier on Instagram they said Evora was a world champion. :lol:

    I'm very excited that the Amanda news is finally out and I'm looking forward to seeing her compete on the show! :cheer: It sounds like she's all ready having a ton of fun there and she specifically mentioned to me how much she loves being back on the ice. Hopefully they end up putting some of the performances on You Tube again since I live no where near Canada and that's my only way to see her! Gotta love those random errors in her bio though and I also got a chuckle out of the World Champion mention, LOL :lol: :cheer:

    Kazakova? Wow. Would love to see her again. I like the lists of ladies/hockey players. Variety.
    Looking forward to this!!

    According to my on-line TV guide, it will be 2 hours.

    Here's some news about the first show on Sept. 22 as posted by BOTB on Facebook in response to a question about tickets: "Sunday's show is not a live show. It's a look back at the past seasons of Battle + you'll get to know this years competitors and learn who is paired with who!"
