Up front they added their two European imports (who looked great in the Rookie scrimmage Sunday but disappeared during the Blue and White game), Huether (acquired from Barrie who looked good during the weekend) and I assume Burgess who did not play any games or participate in the practice due to a concussion received in Russia. Also I believe Desroschers, AP for last few years made the roster. Not sure what happened with Coulton Spicer, as at rookie camp looked strong and played well but was sent back home prior to Monday's Blue and White game. Also Racino official retired from Hockey due to recurring concussion issues.

Overall the teams looks strong and should be a contender , will need to bulk up on D however if they are planning to go all the way. Goaltending (Vienneau/Dupuis) might also be an issue, strong but not exceptional.

As to the rookies let go after yesterday, no one of note except possibly 1 or 2 players that could eventually play big roles in the organization, still 1 year away from playing OHL however. Also I was surprised not to see Crampton (95 D) as he was quite strong at their rookie camp, maybe he decided to follow the NCAA route.
Thanks for that! From the SCTA how did Eccles and LeBlanc look while in camp?
