The only potential playoff upset would be the 8th seed beating the 1st. Every other series will be too close to call.

I dunno about that, if Ottawa and Kanata happen to claim 1 and 8, I believe Kanata is 4-1-1 against the Jr Sens this year

But Kanata has to get in first. Their final 4 games are against SF, Nepean, Brockville and Pembroke. Hawkesbury is only 2 points back with games against Cumberland, Kemptville and Gloucester. Should be an exciting 2 weeks.

Player of the Week

Guess the week belonged to goalies - Darren Smith (Pembroke) won it with Guerriero (Hawks) and Savard-Belanger (OJS) get Honorable Mention

Let's not forget that Hawkesbury has 3 games in hand. IMO, Kanata is out.
I like to use goal differential to rank playoff bound teams and so far it appears this methodology will hold true for this year (see GD below).

***note:*** This is not my list of the top 8 playoff ranking. It's only a view to see which teams make the playoffs based on goal differential.

I believe they have to be 16 or 17 years old to win.

Hindsight is 20/20 but PLK should have protected Summers over McDade. McDade was drafted by Oshawa in the 3rd round while Summers went in the 6th. McDade will be gone next year.

Two player race, Summers and don't forget OJS Hunter Racine both impact guys should be interesting how votes play out? Summers will probably win but Racine will make it interesting at least!

As a 17 year old rookie goaltender, Smith has been given the chance to be the number one guy and he hasn't disappointed. I agree that it should be between these two. Honourable mention goes to Hunter Racine (Ottawa) and Patrick White (Gloucester).

I vote for Hunter Racine. I also think all 4 (Racine, White, McDade and Summers) will be gone next year.

summers is commited to go to clarkson so he is here for atleast one more year as long as he doesnt de-commit and go to oshawa. Summers is only a few points behind racine as a defence-men so he gets my vote. Racine is yet to sign in peterborough but i could also see him going there next year

Interesting, I had'nt noticed that Ottawa had such a small goal differential.
I like Smith (if he's eligible) over Summers, both are great choices but goaltending is so important.
I don't see kanata getting in.
I think Ottawa will win it all, but I agree, the other three opening round series will be a coin toss.

I'm afraid, we have a lot of average teams this year and we are missing the 1 or 2 great teams we usually have. Hopefully I will be proven wrong at the Fred Page Cup.

Some players have verbal commitments. Is there someone out there that can explain the difference between verbal and letter of intent? Not sure what Summers has. I have been told a verbal means nothing and the player can get out of it at any time?? I can see Racine, White, and Summers all going to OHL next season. Why wouldn't they if they got a school package.

He can go OHL if he wants at any time. He's not locked in...

Not sure why he wouldn't be eligible. He's a '95 who's never played junior hockey. Weegar won last year as a '94. As for Summers, defence is also a tough position to play as a rookie.

I think Ottawa will finish first but I don't think they'll win it all come playoffs. I could even see Hawkesbury taking them out (assuming they get in) in the first round.

I think we went through this last year when Zebracritic was pumping the tires of Luke Edwards at years end (and rightly so - as good a candidate as any at the time). Only thing is - - there is no such league award!

Having stated this, if you want to speculate regardless, then there are a number of worthy candidates ('95/'96) for top rookie. In addition to Summers from CP, one would have to consider two Pembroke Lumberkings players: Smith (played 3 games in net last year but has been outstanding this year!) and Larson (only 5 games last season but a 17 year old this year at over a point a game pace!!!). Other suggestions are welcome.

Additionally there has been MVP talk (Pontarelli as my choice) on here and some top goaltender chatter (Guerriero, etc). How about most improved or most dissappointing (that would be interesting!)

Post your thoughts....

Smith (played 3 games in net last year...)
What are you talking about? From CCHL website:

ROOKIE OF THE YEAR

2011-12 Mackenzie Weegar (Nepean)
2010-11 Nathan Pancel (Gloucester)
2009-10 Matthew Peca (Pembroke)
2008-09 Mitch Zion (Ottawa)
2007-08 Calvin De Haan (Kemptville)

And Darren Smith played major midget last year. Those 3 games you see are exhibition.

-------------------

I recalled Cowie (MVP) and Johnston (Top D) and thought Weeger was "top prospect". I thought that was it for league awards. Obviously I stand corrected. Just recalled a post from last year stating otherwise as I was pushing for Mac on Hockeysfuture Boards.

I still stand by/suggest that Pemby's Smith and Larson are top propects/rookies this year. Don't follow Pemby close enough to notice that his three games last year were in exhibition - although it makes sense given their strength in net and their number one last season. Summers also has garnered alot of attention this year.

Thanks for the clarification Ottawafan.
