Making big deals to go for it? You mean like this year when the Knights did nothing and teams like Plymouth, Belleville, Kitchener and Owen Sound all looking better than London since the trade deadline?
If the Knights down win the OHL and Memorial Cup to follow they will only be categorized as the biggest chokers in OHL history. Don't talk to me about how the Hunter's always make big trades when they are contenders because this year they didn't. In 05/06 they didn't and proceeded to get swept by Peterborough. Or in 06/07 when they got spanked by Plymouth. The arrogance of the Hunter's this year has gotten in the way of winning another OHL title and trying to win a Memorial Cup.
You forgot about 2009 when they thought Trevor Cann would take them to the promised land,Ha Ha,we what happened there,Spits took them out in 5,great series no doubt,talk about underestimating ones team,Hunters have been guilty of that
Rychel does not appear to be the only one in that category
