I'll post an equally biased view from the other perspective. The Colts will also likely return a full defence corps including the best defenceman on either team - Belle River's own - Aaron Ekblad. He can play 30 minutes a night next year in crunch time so the Colts really only need three other guys. Up front Anasthasiou - Hall - Theoret outscore any top line the Spits can put out there and that's assuming that AC doesn't come back. Bradford - McDonald - Lemieux will have to improve, but the Colts also have the following picks in first five rounds of the upcoming draft to deal:
2013 Colts: 1st (once drafted), KIT 3rd, PLY 3rd, OTT 3rd, WSR 4th
2013 Spits: 3rd, SAG 4th, ERI 5th
The Colts will have at least one OA spot and will also have two import spots to fill with an eye to improving what they already have.
We will disagree whether the committe will look positively on the spits post deadline
my guess because 2 of the best D were out most of the last 21 games and going
500 will look positive despite Koko and Aleardi not returning,because both D will back
The spits have 121 pts returning on the D as of now while the colts have 80,gig differnce,4 spits with more then 10 pts colts have 2
