I don't know really - a five loss team doesn't want to mess with a really good thing. Something to be said about team chemistry and not mucking it up.
Spits add a few nice pieces, but they don't have the luxury of a get-to-know-new-teammates period as we're tied for last in the conference as of right now (albeit with two games on hand over Erie) and seven back of 8th spot (with three games on hand over Saginaw). And all that just to face you dudes in the first round. I was hoping the Soo would have sold more to make potentially catching them more realistic.
Boughner and the coaches need to have a team meeting with the lockerroom and really preach team defence and taking care of our own end first. We traded arguably our second best defensive defenceman in Posa and brought in a riverboat gambler. Sure we can say Koekkoek -26 was a product of Peterborough, but former Spit Brandon Devlin is +5 there in 16 games.
