How do you make a great team better?
 
I was reading the Sunday London Free Press, and the Soo Grey Hounds have had one call from a GM regarding the availability of Jeff Carter....that GM? Mark Hunter of the London Knights. I couldn't believe what I was reading, could JC actually come home to play for the Knights? That would be scary. (for the record, the article said the Soo said no.....for now.....but if they're in a bad spot come January, then they'll talk)

Carter is going nowhere, as the Soo have said several times.

Why would the Knights want to mess with the great chemistry they have??

I believe I said the same thing in my post, it's in brackets. :)

London would be a .500 team in the west!!!
 
The London Knights have no one to play against in the OHL. If they played in the west Med Hat, Kelowna, Red Deer, Calgary, Vancouver, Saskatoon, Seattle and Kootaney would all be better teams then them. Hopefully you enjoy your year because when it comes time for the Mem-cup, the west will win again.

How many beers have you been drinking tonight as*munch. Have you seen the division the Knights are in w/ Kitchener, Owen Sound, Erie and Guelph. Its the best division in the OHL and the Knights have beaten them all twice. I can't wait until London wins the memcup to shove it people like you's face :teach:

It's true. London is in the toughest division in the OHL. This team definetly looks like they could and probably are the best in the CHL, but I won't jump to conclusions without having watched some of the teams listed above. And all of this is coming from an Owen Sound fan, not a Knights fan.

As for making the Knights better, I say you don't mess with them.

The one-game under .500 Vancouver Giants? You're dreaming. Maybe one or two of the above teams are better than the Knights, but how could a team with a 12-11-0-2 record (lost more than they've won) beat a team that hasn't yet been defeated?

A team with that record could beat an undefeated team because like I said the whole OHL is is weaker than the whole WHL. Vancouver's loses have come against tougher WHL teams not weaker OHL teams.

How did Guelph do at the Mem-cup?

Might be a tough division in the OHL, but that is it.

In the past 5 years, the W has won the memorial cup as many times as the O.

Like I said, MAYBE a few WHL teams are better than the OHL, but if you put the best OHL team against the MJ Warriors or the SC Broncos, who would win? There are some excellent teams in the OHL this year - Kitchener, Owen Sound, Mississauga - and the Knights have beaten them all.

Put the Knights against the Tigers and it would be a heck of a good game. Put the Knights against any WHL team under .500, including the Giants, and it would be as much of a blowout as a game between the Tigers and the Saginaw Spirit would be.
