Interesting chatter over the past couple days fellas. Some stats to digest:
Goals against - ranked 15 / 20 in OHL
teams worse = Erie, Ottawa, Kingston, {Saginaw/Peterborough (both are tied with Windsor)}

Goals for - ranked 17 / 2- in OHL
teams worse = Petes, Mississauga, Brampton (note: brampton only has 145 goals against compared to Windsors 193 thus the reason they are finding success by not scoring much).

Pavelka - 17th goalie in terms of ohl stats
42 games (tied for 3rd most - heavy workload, lots of shots)
- names that are close to him in stats - JP Anderson (all time win leader for ohl), Jake Patterson (SAG) team canada goalie. - not that these accolades make them awesome or put them on a pedestal or anything, just putting him in a category for this year.

Goal scorers ranked in ohl
Rychel - 18th
Aleardi - 34th
Vail - 55th
Giftopoulos - 80th
Ho Sang - 88th
Ebert - 89th
* two of them were deadline acquisitions so you may argue that they don't even count, but remember (i didnt check) but you probably traded away somebody(s) that were in the top 100 so it probably evens out.

On the outside as a hockey fan (and maybe my junior goalie hockey experience makes me a bit biased) but I think the problem lies in your 5 skaters in front of Pavelka. If his save percentage was below .900 I would sway the other way but that is a telling stat. Yes the GA is a bit high but other goalies with good pedigrees are in the same ball park. When you look at your top scorers though, their ages sure do provide a nice glimmer of hope for the future thats for sure.

Food for though - if Rychel was thinking that this is how the deadline was going to pan out and that he was going to make a run for it (final playoff spot), why not claime Bailie off waivers when London released him. Stats were very good, half season with a winning attitude, could have brought some mojo with him and add in the fact if the 1st round match up was WSR vs LDN, talk about motivation for the kid eh.
