No doubt in my mind that Peterborough is the best team in the OHL. Any one of their top 9 forwards could play on the top line in Owen Sound that is for sure. I guess I will have to wait 'til Satruday to actually see the Pete's play as they come to Owen Sound...
I think there are too many teams who are good. The name of the game in the OHL this year is parity. Right now it looks like Peterborough is the best, but two weeks ago it was London. Saginaw and Barrie have been excellent for most of the season as well.
Peterborough, Guelph, and Saginaw both deserve consideration, alot of people don't like Saginaw, but i think they got everything they need... except experience to go deep in the playoffs, guelph is playing great, and peterborough is clearly one of th ebest in the league east sleeper is ottawa, never can be counted out proved that last year, and in the west is london and sarnia, both teams aren't getting much credit, but sarnia has an incredable team, a great rookie goaltender who is splitting time with a good overager, and Mark Katic who i saw in person a week ago, and is already being compared to Paul Coffey, which is alot to put on a guy, but i think they could shock anyone in the league
Peterborough, Guelph, and Saginaw both deserve consideration,
Right now, IMO, Peterborough is clearly #1 and the team to beat. They have the best winning % and are on a 10 game winning streak. The trade for Downie only made them deeper up front. Defense is apparently a bit of a concern, but with these new rules defense seems less important - at least right now.
As for #2 - that's what we should be debating - there are 3 or 4 teams that are arguably #2. If we go by winning percentage - it's the knights. However, strong cases can be made for Guelph and Saginaw for #2 as well.
what do you think now that he leads the league in both GAA and save percentage? (don't get me wrong i didn't predict this happening, i just think he deserves some dap for his amazing play so far this year.)
i saw barrie in mississauga and in brampton this weekend. little was fantastic in both games. he made wolski look like *****. i can't imagine how good wolski would be if he'd try every now and then.
