Goaltending is strong in Gruehl but may need to get another trade in (Curley). They will be the class of the league this year, 5 peat is for real.
2. Brockville - Should have a strong season again starting from the back end, Gilbert and 5 solid d will make this team tough again. They are definitely short up front in offensive talent.
3. Cornwall - Strong, Strong offense, with Laliberte back, the twins and Zion now this will be a team that can score at any time, defense and goaltending a big issue, however, Chretien showed he could play, if he plays strong they will compete every night.
4. CP - Dont look for sophomore blues this year, this team is well coached and will bring more at you every night this year. They have solid goaltending and strong forwards that work every night. Wont win the league but will be there all year with a much stonger game.
5. Two Teams - Nepean - expect them to try and get back to the competeive team trying to challenge for a title. Even losing Calof will not hurt the teams want to be prominence again, they have not had the goaltending since Macdonald left but a serious goalie could have them there as a upset contender. Ottawa - started to show signs in the 2nd half they want to compete, summer looks like they have finally committed off the ice and that always leads to a good start. They have a solid goalie and could be 2 lines strong in scoring so D becomes the question, if they get D in their own zone they will compete every night.
Top 5 Goaltenders: Depends you want, Who will help his team? or league voted crap! A year ago PLK had one of the top two goalies in the league all season and was just as big in the league playoffs, yet only had the respect from the players, should have been at the Ontario Challenge, should have been an allstar and quitely came within inches of setting all time league stats in wins and shutouts. if not for a 10 game injury PLK would have won the RS title and he would have broke all the wins/shutouts records. If you want what the best goalies both stats and play outside the voting then .....
1. Ben Curly - he will play 50 games, is a game beaker and with him needing a scholarship expect him in Pembroke.
2. Justin Gilbert - probably play 40 games this year, will be there with numbers and proved to be quite a playoff addition right through the RBC.
3. Greg Gruehl - assuming he is the starter the whole season, barring an aquisition, he will play 45 games this year and while he is smaller in size he is a winner and has a refuse to lose attitude, with PLK's strength he will be up there in all categories.
4. Alex Chretien - Cornwall may need him a lot this year unless they find some D. He is a strong solid goalie and was better than Carr at the end of the year. But stats may not be as good as he really is.
5. Scott Shackel - The up and down goalie, he can have some big games where he shuts down teams and two nights later, where did he go. If he stays in CP he will have the work ethic team in front of him and the number will be strong. Good size, can make huge saves, but needs to learn the difference between handling the puck and staying put, once in a while.
Top 5 Scorers:
1. Jacob Laliberte - easy choice, of course he may never leave the league, will put 125-130 on the board if he stays healthy.
2. Tyler Tousonian - With the fire power back in Pembroke he will contend again all yearas league leader, expect him to be there at 120-130 pts.
3. Andrew Creppin - assuming he is staying he will put another 100 pts on the board but will it be in a green uniform, dont let the Lunber Kings spend the money at Christmas or he may put up 130.
4. Jonathon Milley - He was on a 100 pt season pace last year until the injury, with the players on the first 3 lines expect another 100 pts. He is a Selleck look a like, can dominate physically and score, he wants the college deal expect a huge year like he was in the league playoffs.
5. Nicholas Belleville - Expect a huge year from him could be 85-90 pts, problem may be surrounding offensive talent, could be a big year if he has some talent on his line.
Just so everyone doesnt get upset, this was just an opinion!
Well Ok, I am a Hawkes fan but here is my theory on the back of my lunchmat today. 4,3,3 points for who are your 19-20 year old players, your 16-18 players, and your coachs and management.
