Rocket are in a tough predicament... They have the top end skill and role players to continue this great play, but you have to look at the big picture at the same time...

Duffy and Currie are gone after this year, and are clearly the driving force in the Rocket engine... how much will they fetch at Christmas? BLB will surely be interested, and have a spot for them...

Or do they ride them out and see what noise they can make in the playoffs?

You got to sell. There's just no way they can pull off a big upset that would justify keeping them..

Depends on the break... Broke his wrist on October 25th and doctors say anywhere from 4-8 weeks.

Probably looking at late november/early december as a return.

The further we get into the season, the less I think the Rocket are playing in over their heads. Is it really a rebuild?

They have three 20 year olds firing on all cylinders....exactly what Bathurst needed to do to stay competitive.

Other than Fucale, I'll take PEI goaltending over anyone else in the division.

PEI's EURO situation.......Beran is hurt, but what they had was a pair of 19 year olds making big contributions. So their 5 specials (three overagers and 2 Euros) are maximized. Compare that with the other division rebuild....Cape Breton.

They have 2 legit guys to make impact as 20's.....Oligny and Provencher.

Until Moncton can figure it out, I like PEI. Nobody is taking Halifax this year, so maybe everyone should be sellers at Christmas. But the Rocket aren't smoke and mirrors like some are saying. They have their coaches work ethic and contributions from everyone.

This season yeah. PEI's goaltending has been tops in the division... Fucale is the best goalie in the division imo (in the future and probably this season later on), and Auger has been stellar.... Dubeau has been shaky and Brennan has cooled off since the beginning of the season back to earth...

Bibeau has been arguably the best goalie in the Q this season...

I'd take Moncton over PEI..

It could be a one and done, or a sell now, compete for years.

PEI have been slowing down as of late, seems to be coming down to earth. Where as Moncton are finally shaping up. I think they'll be close until the trade deadline when Moncton adds and PEI stands still or unloads.

Nothing "official" but scuttlebutt has both Lagace and Duffy gone by Christmas. Currie is obviously getting a ton of interest.

Yeah but I dont think this franchise has too many more years of selling and being a bottom team left to be honest

Didn't help that they haven't been a strong team until now.. Well they're solid.

They are decent, wouldn't call an 8th place team solid....solid mid-pack team I guess. I don't think they can touch the big 4 and I would put RIM and BC as better teams...barring trade activity upcoming.

Agreed. Sea Dogs are the perfect example. I would really hate to see Oligny leave though.

would PEI consider rebuilding after being 3rd in the division and looking like they will finish in the best sport they have in a few years?
