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.
They've made big trades before, 2005, 2009, 2012 come to mind. Had everything going in 2009, Cann looked good but gets concussed after the deadline. Had to rely on Borden after an abomination of games 1-3 from Cann. Don't know what they were supposed to do at that time.
Your last sentence makes no sense. We are in February so it hasn't cost them yet if at all. London hadn't lost for two months and the deadline came and they got Mermis for nothing and Stolarz for nothing. Mermis looks like an offensive defenceman that London has needed for a long time. Stolarz is starting to look like the #1 goalie we've hoped for.
What trades were they supposed to make that would have lifted the arrogance from your mind? Were they supposed to trade a Welychka or Elie type who will be important parts for next year's run for a rental after going 60 days without losing a game? Maybe it's confidence.
Look around the league, Hunters haven't burned bridges like Rychel. The pompous ass thinks he can trade down in 2010 to draft his kid later on top of gettting another first rounder. We had to put up with Tucker and Garret Hunter being drafted in the 2nd and 5th rounds. Not even OHL level players.
