Cant pin all the goals against on the goalies,at the 30 game mark Dekort"s ave was.312
and Pavelka"s was 3.08,team had trouble scoring but the defense and goaltending was not an issue,should be noted the 240 against alo includes 6 empty netters and 6 shootout goals
During the 1st 30 games the Spits missed 7 man games with injuries,during the next 30 games leading until today,Spits have missed 77 man games due to injury,11 times more then what happened the 1st half of the sched,plus 23 man games missed due to suspensions
Injuries to the Spits,2 of their best Dmen KoekKoek and Seiloff have missed 30 games combined in the last 21 games since the trade deadline yet the Spits are 10-10-0-1 with them and others out with injuries and suspensions
The trades at the deadline have helped this team and in the future looking at next year,both Koekkoek and Giftopoulous will be back
When the Spits were relatively healthy they went 5-0-0-1 before more injuries and suspensions hit thus decimating this team going forward
The goals against looks gaudy but there were reasons for a large part of them which I feel wont happen next year
As well with a young roster all 9 D-men are under 19 currently,1 goalie 17,9 forwards
under 19,one might the potential for improvement
To me the goal tending is not a concern with these facts presented,as it compares
to Barrie when they only have 1 definitive goalie back and he is an 18 year old
In the end the Spits have more offense returning,despite the loss of Koko and Aleardi,the colts lose Scheiffle,Camara,Beyers,Oconnor and Nieiderburger,huge losses
Windsor offense from the defense returning will be amongst the best in the league
No doubt there is work to be done by Windsor to more competetive going forward,Barrie is in a similiar boat despite their standing this year
