Our strengths for sure are our top two forward lines, our two experienced goalies and our top four defense.

we need a good intimidation type player for sure, to play either defense or on the third line.

I couldn't agree more. In my opinion, the favourites next year will be the Niagara Ice Dogs, but the 67's should definitely contend, especially if Martindale comes back. I kind of hope that Kilrea is willing to give up a bit of our future for some vets, even though that goes against his style. In my opinion, if we could give up a young player and a pick for a 2nd line winger or top 4 defenceman, I see us on equal terms with the Ice Dogs.

Does anyone think that Foglia will emerge as a top 6 winger this year? What about Smith? He's obviously an elite 3rd liner, but it would be nice to see him build on that 20-20 season from a year ago.
