OHT35 - Ode to the Dearly Departed

LAMENT FOR THE NOT-SO-MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

In all of the CIS 28 of 35 teams make the playoffs. Whether that is too many I shall leave for another day to debate. I thought that in the post-season it would be of interest to look at the teams who failed to make the grade. Four were graded C, and three were graded C-. Here is the table excerpt:

Dal-lousy was the highest ranked non-playoff team. Their record against B level teams was quite good. One thing that stands out to me is that they only had two non-conference games. This seems too low for me. If they don't want to fund a pre-season trip to Quebec or something, at least they could rent the ice for a couple more games.

The OUA West was better than usual this year, and Brock was the only team to miss the dance. Their 4-1 loss to UWO is only game all year decided by more than 2 goals.

After being promoted from the ACAC to the CW it was hard to tell what to expect from the New Kittens on the Block. They got a baptism of fire, starting the season with a series against each of the Big Three. The fact that they beat the Monkeys, and then won twice against the Bedrock Boys, would make the season a success. When I saw them they had more than their share of large bodies. Time will tell if they will find a level of recruits needed to challenge contending teams other than the Bedrock Boys on a consistent basis.

The Stinkers were 2-6 in OT games this year. They missed the playoffs by one point. They are entrenched as the weak-sister of the three Quebec-based teams. That is odd since before the schools amalgamated Sir George Williams was always a threat. Still, the OUA East was weak this year and this was a golden opportunity to at least make the playoffs.

The H0rny Ones were the most disappointing team in the CIS this year. They had some valid reasons. Due to injuries they often played with 16 or 17 players. This should serve as a lesson to those in the AUS who want roster restrictions. Player shortage aside, it was obvious they lacked the talent to compete on a season-long basis against CW opposition. They will need a major recruiting drive to challenge the two Cougar teams for a playoff berth in 2014.

The Pids only had one more non-conference game than Dal-lousy. But at least they went south to face some NCAA teams. The Pids were supposedly going to improve this year. Yet they were one point behind the H0rny Ones, who had a disastrous season. If these guys want to recruit against their AUS cohorts they need to put together an attractive schedule. Why not a pre-season trip to Montreal? Or Ottawa?

RMC did not have a stellar record. Just think what it would be if they did not have 13 games against C level teams? We all have to wish them well, because in a sense they are a national team. It would be nice if they could at least beat Army.
