Eric Locke for MVP
There is no line in the OHL that is playing better than Lodge-Ross-Locke right now. Jimmy's offensive talent is starting to show as he has been averaging over 1.5 pts/game since Dec 15. Ross has filled into Trocheck's old center and captain's spot very well.
And then there's Eric Locke. 74 pts (5th), 33 goals (T-3rd), +31 (3rd). The other people that are in the top 5 in all of those 3 categories right now: NOBODY! That's right NOBODY. This guy doesn't have a lower gear. He's putting up these numbers this year on a team that has been fighting injuries all year long to key guys (Archibald, Strong, Webermin, etc). He has simply put Saginaw on his back and brought this team towards the playoffs when they could have just packed it in and said "Well we're a young team, it's no big deal if we miss the playoffs." But that's not what Eric does.
I think back to a 5 point game against Windsor before Christmas were Locke single handedly destroyed the Spits. The game defined his season so far. All hustle, all heart, all the time.
If Locke doesn't play like this right now, we miss the playoffs. Plain and simple. Eric Locke is the MVP.
