My impression

It seemed to me that Lakehead was rebuilding this year. IMO their record is a bit misleading in that the OUA West is in a down year. They could win two series against mediocre teams. If they do, then they would be in the final four of the OUA, and three teams go to nationals this year.

Also, they have not had a stellar recruiting class in a while. At one time they had a CW- or AUS-calibre recruiting program. I have seen Manitoba have great success with some Junior "A" players. But the Major Junior grads are ultimately what you need. If they could do that then they could be a consistent threat on a national level and dominant within the OUA.
