The euro additions were crutial for them and they struck gold choosin Zykov in the second round of the Import draft. Acquiring Straka for 3rd and 6th round picks also proved to be a very beneficial move.
if you remember i had picked them also as a possible surprise. Not a surprise to me, but surprise based on teams being mentioned as contenders. Do i think they can compete with halifax, quebec, blainville and moncton?? no! but, i do think they can be anywhere from 5-8th. If you look at all teams that are lining up for big years next year, IMO, they are at the top of the pile. Zykov is only 17 and his success only makes it easier for BC to recruit another euro. They have had issues getting euros the past 3-4 years. They hold 2 first round picks in the next 2 drafts. Their starting goalie is 17 and very, very consistent. Not stellar often, but consistent. And the 4 teams mentionned above are all gunning for it this year. Some will still be pretty good next year (halifax), but i dont think they will be quite as good as they are now. The other big/significant pick up was their coach! The approach of their team has completely changed. They have a quiet confidence about them. They are the most disciplined team in the league. He has brought them to another level and with him having won before, he will know how to handle the team next year.
