(I personally think they will finish 3rd in the conference behing Saginaw and the Knights). I attend several games in Guelph when the Knights are in town...always good crowds and great games. I really think Guelph could be a serious contender for the ohl title with a couple trades.
The Bertuzzi pick in the 2nd round doesn't surprise me at all. Some of it may be the connection of the name, but I really think he is going to develop. It isn't what about what is there now....it is what he 'could' be...and I think he could be a solid 3rd to 2nd liner in the nhl.
I am getting the feeling that most Storm fans believe this will be the year to go for it. The depth at forward is VERY good, especially with the add of Suter (who is small but talented).

Everything I read says Baltisberger has a shot at being a first round pick in the upcoming draft. That will be an excellent add to the blue line, and should help compensate for the loss of Pedan.

But there is still a glaring hole, and that is in net. Current projected starter Michael Nishi has been on 5 teams across to separate CHL leagues. And while I believe Matthew Mancina will be a good goalie, expecting a rookie to be a #1 is not smart.
