Yeah the East is worse than ever. Toronto has not improved much despite the Ray acquisition, MTL continues to decline with Calvillo, Hamilton is just average once again, and my Bombers will be lucky to win 4 games this year.

BC is by far the class of this league. They will win 15-16 games this year and cruise to the Grey Cup. CGY will a healthy Tate MIGHT give them some pause, but nobody else is close. EDM is almost as bad as the East, and SSK is still one step down from those elite teams. Thing is, SSK is probably the 3rd best team, but won't be rewarded for that since the West is so strong .

Hamilton might win the East with a 9-9 record. I just don't believe MTL is that good this year, their D is not very good and the O has lost too many weapons. But TOR and WPG will be far back of the pack, they will not even compete for playoffs, even only one read, quick release Ray will not save them by any means.
