The 09 Spits were expected to do great in 09. The year prior they were 41-15-7-5 for 94 points and that team was returning Hall, Henrique, Ellis, Nemisz, Cundari, Young, Kwiet, Blacker, incoming from import draft Loktionov, Dale Mitchell from the prior trade, 2nd round pick Austin Watson. They were a 3 seed the year prior and returning a lot, in fact to start the year I believe they were ranked pre-season #1 in Canada. I call bunk on not expecting to do great.
