Athens has had their way with Westport the last three years in the Rideau final and i think that will continue this year aswell.
For the Valley division Perth will more then likely face Stittsville where the ship seems to be sinking, the coaches have been fired and they are only running a short bench which has been talked about on here. With the depth Perth has now that they have Pearson, Clancy is back and deadline acquistions Rutley and Sinclair on defense who adds a physical force to go with their top scorers they already had. They would meet either Arnprior or Renfrew who they can beat with their new additions and there very good home record.
1st place in Rideau is huge as the 2-3 matchup will take its toll on the survivor. However i can't see Athens coming out of the Rideau this year. Extremely talented up front but from what I've seen of them their D is slow and soft. My opinion Westport is the deepest team 4 solid lines and physical D and good goaltending.
Unless they run into a hot goalie Casselman will win the STL i think Winchester will give them fits but won't be able to overcome their depth. I could see the Wolves taking out Char- Lan
Despite all the turmoil this season i like the Packers to win the Valley. All 4 teams from the Metro are talented but i think Gatineau will win it.
