That is true, but I'd honestly be pretty surprised. They were so close last season, and they are currently in 3rd place in the East.

The road to the Memorial Cup likely goes through London, but they wouldn't face them until the OHL Championship.

It's only a hunch, but I imagine the Niagara fan base we be rather disappointed if the team looked to the future when they have a potential championship team. If they add a piece or two, they already have high end talent plus one of the better goalies in the OHL.

EDIT: That said ... if Niagara starts selling pieces you can guarantee Ritchie is heading out as well. I'm not so concerned about him playing with Strome specifically as I am with him playing for a team that can go deep in the playoffs. I think we can agree that Niagara's chances plummet if Strome and Hamilton are in the NHL.
