To the poster who said London's looked average since the trade deadline... it was a similar story last year. We were losing a ton of games towards the end of the season and a lot of people were questioning them. Then they put together a 16-2 run in the playoffs.
I'm not saying that I'm sure we're going to win, but it sure looks like a similar story. You say that teams like Plymouth, OS and Kitchener aren't fearful of the Knights going into the playoffs? They don't need to be. Kitchener had London's number all season last year, until they got swept in the playoffs. Windsor probably had confidence after coming into the series w/ 2 straight wins against the Knights.
The Western Conference is a dog fight every year, and the Knights couldn't have guaranteed victory if they added Trocheck, Ceci, Corrado and Monahan.
Is it arrogance that Mark didn't add? No, it's a risky move that might have double the benefit. The team the Knights have next year could be just as good as this team. Next year is a big year with the Memorial Cup, so Mark decided to try and win them both without sacrificing this years team.
