He's a wildcard I suppose, but I also hope he can get back there. I thought the Colts believed in him - elsewise why not trade him away at the deadline? I'm sure teams were sniffing after him...

They did say the same thing about Lemieux...but assuming you're right, how about LaBanc?

Is the no-trading for sure? Nobody seems to be able to point to that decision being made. Assuming it is, you may be right.

I guess we'll see - but Ekblad has demonstrated a high level of play as the de facto number one defenceman through 4 rounds of the OHL playoffs. No way to know how McKeown will respond to that pressure until such time as he does it.

I never said "team to beat", I just have confidence that they can make it. As for Kingston, they haven't finished in the top three in the Eastern conference in 20 years. I expect their leadership will screw things up.

Interestingly, Horvat and Domi just went higher than others expected (I expected Bo to go top 10) in the draft...wonder what that means...
