Brock- Didn't have to upgrade much, but brought in great players so far. (Upgrade)

Carleton- Added some NCAA and CHL experience to an already stacked lineup (Upgrade)

Concordia- Falling behind (Downgrade)

Guelph- Added top notch Tier 2 and a former WHL goalie. (Upgrade)

Lakehead- Only one guy who played 3rd line minutes for the Frontenacs (Downgrade)

Laurentian- Had to recruit a whole team (Upgrade)

Laurier- Great mix of CHL and CJHL players (Upgrade)

McGill- Bringing in 3 ex-pros and a defenseman with better Q stats than MA Doirion (Upgrade)

Nipissing- If they announce Junior Harris from the Kingston Voyageurs, then upgrade. Right now, they
are still the same as they were (Same)

Ottawa- Brought in similar players to the ones they already have (Same)

Queen's- Coach Gibson over recruits, but brings in guys with AUS, CHL and high CJHL scorers (upgrade)

RMC- Graduates 5 walk ons with ZERO junior hockey experience, to bring in 3 ex-captains of CJHL teams, and adds to their CHL grad count with 7 now. (Upgrade)

Ryerson- Finally figure out their goaltending situation, and bring in guys with size and skill. Hopefully they have discipline as well since Ryerson was a gongshow in the 2nd half of the season. (Upgrade)

Toronto- Replaces the forwards they already lost (Same)

UOIT- Changing conferences to compete with RMC and Concordia for playoff spots, brings in a dynamte backup goalie for O'Hagen and adds lots of CHL grads (Upgrade)

UQTR- Replaces their great players with more great players (Upgrade)

Waterloo- Winning championships is the best way to recruit and Waterloo got more talented (Upgrade)

Windsor- After a great season, their recruiting class dosen't capitalize on that momentum (Downgrade)

Western- Only 2 guys announced so far, but adding CHL players is always nice (Same)

York- Wasn't losing much, adding pieces they needed to replace (Same)
