I cannot help but think though that teams like Owen Sound, Saginaw, and Erie will also be hurting from graduation so the Storm might have some company from others hit hard by departures to scrap for the last playoff spot. Maybe supporters of those teams might have a better understanding.
I look at Guelph as a team that me be able to be a low tier competitive team (battle for a playoff spot), but what benefit is that? If your going to struggle to compete for the playoffs, then you may as well trade everything and do it right.
I referenced Kingston in my past post, but thats what they have always done wrong (this year included with the trade for Bobkov). Trading picks for filler players so that they could be the last playoff team.
Why push to be the best of the worst? Barrie did it right, they got the best player to build around, and will be better for it.
