Listen, Junior's have the quickest turnaround you'll see in sports. In NCAA, they recruit (so it's different). In the CHL, you have a variance of 4 years.

To be the best, you most often have to have been the worst recently. In the OHL, the two teams that seemed to have exception to this was the Ottawa 67s and London Knights (who have just/are now going through it). Examples include:

-Halifax Mooseheads (#1 in Canada, terrible past 4...5?? lot of seasons)
-Barrie Colts (Worst team in OHL a few seasons)
-Niagara Ice Dogs (sellers at the deadline, traded some guy named Strome)

This is good for the 67s. Next year, they'll be a middle of the pack team (#5/6/7) in the East with a high pick and some new 17 and 18 year olds that are picked up from Ceci and Graovac trades. Then in 2 years when they move back to the Civic Centre, they've got a bunch of kids in their prime ready to contend for the Robertson Cup...
