Saskatoon isn't really a comparative for Windsor. Beyond the fact that they had a winning record and made the playoffs last year, the winning streak has been a function of trade deadline deals. They traded away four picks at the deadline, including their '13 and '15 first rounders to bulk up their roster. This is after trading their '14 first rounder and two 3rd rounders earlier this season. Since:

a) The Spits are not going to have the base that Saskatoon had at the end of the season,
b) You can't trade a first rounder in the OHL,
c) Even if you could, the Spits don't have them anyway to trade,

contemplating that Windsor might somehow be able to replicate the feat is somewhat laughable.
