My thoughts

They should be better. Most people had them ranked ahead of Regina before the season.

They have 12 major junior grads and 12 junior A grads on the roster. That is (on paper) below that of the conference powers but not out of line with their history, nor that of many current OUA teams.

They lost their top 3 scorers from last season (Dustin Moore, Winston Day Chief, and Taylor Gal). The recruiting class was not exceptional, but not half bad either. Here are the announcements:

New forward Chase Schaber has done well (8 goals and 10 assists in 19 games), leading the team in scoring. But he has missed the last 3 games with injury. The injury bug has hurt them. They have typically dressed only 16 players in recent games.

I saw them play in Manitoba after they had a bye week in November. They looked to be not quite as good as recent teams, but not significantly so. They played a feisty game, giving the appearance of a team compensating for limited skill with added grit. Here are my posts on their series with Manitoba:

The H0rny Ones will be hosting the Bisons this coming weekend, so any recovery could wait another week from my POV.

Haven't heard from you for a bit, Dale.
Crops all in and you have time on your hands?
Or, just a bit stir crazy staring out at 500 miles of flatness.

I'm looking forward to getting out your way in March. Flight and Hotel booked and ready to go.

Back to hockey civilization for a moment. It appears that the Lethbridge coaches got hoodwinked by their last recruited class. Need to do a better job at looking underneath all the hockey stories by their recruits. And especially ignore any stories by some of the agents players have. Otherwise, no topend players are going to want to go to this bottom end program. Hopefully they turn it around.
