The talent level wasn't bad (wasn't great, either), but that wasn't the issue. It was a pure lack of depth, which was exposed because of injuries. We can't afford to have that happen again next year, so drafting a bunch of flyers because we have a young team shouldn't be an option.
There needs to be better depth but the Spits drafted D's in Morrison and Hughes round 7 and 8. If the Spits liked those guys they should have been signed and you could see them for a couple games here and there. Maybe those guys don't want to commit to Windsor? The depth was hurt as well due to poor use of their 30 cards this year. If they didn't use cards on Ionin, Bezuch and others the depth issue would have been addressed.
Well they didn't take flyers in the form of Morrison, Hughes, Killins, Kotsovos etc.. Yes the organization took some flyers last year but not a lot and look where it got them, they took safe picks and it didn't help. I will tell you one thing if Sean Day ends up sliding in the draft where the Spits could have gotten him the fan base should be livid and Rychel should resign.
