I don't follow the east all that much so I'll only throw out my prediction for the west.

1) Kitchener
2) Plymouth
3) Saginaw
4) London

after that it gets pretty fuzzy because all the teams seem evenly matched

5) Owen Sound
6) Sarnia
7) Windsor
8) Guelph/Erie
9) Guelph/Erie
10) The Soo

Now I know that people are going to look at my placement of London at four and say that ain't right but to me not having a true starting goalie is going to be a HUGE problem. Even if they do get a goalie, they won't be Houser quality. So I could see 3rd at the highest.

The last thing I have to say is the battle for the last two or three playoff spots in the west this year is going to be really close. The Difference between going to the post season and 10th might only be 2 or 3 points.

I find your list not bad, so instead of re-writing it, I'll just add a couple notes:

- Kitchener will be top-4, but I firmly believe they're at least one or two pieces away from top spot. They may find those pieces though.

- I expect both Owen Sound and Windsor to actually be solid and Guelph could surprise many. If any team on that list is too low in my mind, it's Guelph.

My predictions are similar to the others, its also tough to decide this as some teams still have holes that will be filled before the season starts.

1. Kitchener
2. Plymouth
3. London
4. Owen Sound
5. Saginaw
6. Guelph/ Erie
7. Erie/ Guelph
8. Windsor
9. Sarnia

10. The Soo

I bolded the predictions that I feel will be extremely close at the end of the season.

Probably too early for predictions as most rosters are far from complete

I don't see Saginaw being that competitive especially if/when they lose Saad, Shalla and Fine with a few others

Ya i tend to agree with both of your points. Perhaps this will be better after the training camps have concluded.
