So which goalie would you guys move, if any? What teams need a goalie and what would we target?

For me, it's Raaymakers for an 01 and draft picks. That extends our window to win a championship for at least the next 2 years and possibly more.

Keep Raaymakers until the deadline then trade him. Villata can win us games hes a keeper. If the hounds are smart we can have good teams for a few years to come

I agree and i hope that Raaymakers can keep up his playoff play to make himself attractive to other teams.

This sounds all well and good until one of them demands a trade in September and we end up with a couple of third round picks.

Will two starting calibre goalies be willing to coexist or should we maximize their value now?

I know a team that is losing the best goalie in the ohl. And has all the pieces to really go for it next year. All we are missing is mcnivens replacement.

Vella played well in relief.

The best team in the league probably won't win it all without a top goalie. The Hounds have learned that the hard way in recent years.

The important question still is whether Raaymakers is that goalie IMO. A hot stretch in the playoffs isn't enough to convince me that his horrible regular season was an anomaly.

The problem is that there just isn't a shortage of good OHL goalies. Over the past two seasons the biggest returns for a G are:
Keyser (17) for a 2nd;
Timpano (19) [1st '97 G chosen] 10, 3, 2;
Nedeljkovic (19) & Wesley (19) at deadline for Moran & 2,2,2,3,3 [assume Wesley worth 2,3,3].
Beyond that, Mancina and Nichols went for a 3rd.

I agree we won't get a "king's ransom" for Raaymakers but since we can't have 2 first string goalies it would be nice to get something to help out the lineup anywhere needed...or picks of any kind. It's a good dilemma as they say.

Otto Makinen has decided to leave the team next year, despite being offered a spot on the roster. Raftis should explore the trade market for imports, as having 2 rookies would not be ideal at all. Our second round pick will be way down there.

Is he leaving the OHL all together or just the hounds? Interesting player.

He's going back to Finland.

I'm sure I speak for all of us when I say we are sad to hear about Dr. Lou and wish the best for his family. He'll be missed by Hounds fans.

Soo Greyhounds General Manager Kyle Raftis is pleased to announce this morning the commitment from 2017 draft pick HAYDEN FOWLER.
The Kingston, ON native was the Greyhounds’ 1st Round Pick (19th overall) in this past April’s OHL Priority Selection.

I hope the Hounds can fill out their OA spots with some quality players...and use up all 3 spots this time. Also will be curious to see how we fill the 2 import spots as well...that's 5 players or almost a quarter of your team right there!

It looks like Verbeek and Carroll right now, so there are at least 2 quality players. I'd love to get an import via trade instead of relying on a second round pick.

Seeing as we will be in good shape next year, and with Eire icing a much weakened team next year, thoughts on perhaps Owen Headrick coming here in a trade? Would make sense, and would give us a top D-man and fill out an OA spot.
