Moral of the story? Don't put your foot in your mouth.
The difference there is that Windsor was the obvious frontrunner from the year before until Barrie made trades and beat up on a weak Eastern Conference. It was easy to see (cheaters or not) that Windsor was in another class above Barrie. Personally, I don't see another team beating the Knights in a 7 game series but I've also seen this franchise blow playoff series when they shouldn't have lost. So I know I won't take anything for granted.

As for the goalies, Patterson in my mind has been the #1 for nearly two months now. Bailie was good in the first period last night but let in 2 weak ones in the second, and one in the third. I like what he's done for this team but there is a reason why he is an OA while Patterson is likely to be drafted this year. I don't see any moves happening with the goalies and I think the Knights as a team are confident enough in both of them and are confident enough in themselves to play a good defensive game unlike last night.

When the WJC is all said and done is Mermis going to be a PP specialist and send Liberati in the stands or do we see a d-man (Raine) moved?

Harrington-Hughes
Zadorov-Maatta
Mermis-Raine
