Wow you really think THIS team can go 16-8 the rest of the way?

If so ... holy moly ... how much kool aid did you drink?

This team does anything better than .500 and I’ll be impressed ...

Holy cow,, not much faith in this team..

We are just two points away from tying last year's point total and there are a lot of games yet.

I always thought that 40 wins might be difficult for our still young and learning team and what is wrong with setting the bar high?

Once again, my prediction was for them to finish 5th in the east and we are currently 3rd. I still think that we will finish 5th or better yet 4th.

And actually, when we get right down to it, their road record is not that bad either. It's not like they are brutal on the road.

There are 6 teams in the OHL loaded and built to win (SSM, Sarnia, Kitchener, Kingston, Barrie and Hamilton) that the Ice Dogs are not going to beat down the stretch. And 10 of their remaining 24 games are against those teams.

If the Ice Dogs can play .500 hockey the rest of the way it would be considered a very successful season for a young and developing team.

The next 8 games (6 Road / 2 Home) is the toughest part of their schedule. So be realistic with your expectations.

Could be a rough couple of weeks... however that said they may just surprise us and actually start showing up to play a 60 minute game like we all know they can do

The Dogs really have done a good job banking points thus far. My concern is entirely defensive. Even now, after all this time, the Dogs still really struggle just getting the puck out of their end, and up to the forwards. Man, if only the Dogs could lighten the load on Steve Dhillon. Without looking the numbers up, I’d be willing to bet the Dogs’ average shots allowed per game is over 30. I’ve been at games where the shot clock is over 40 on both sides. Dhillon has absolutely been the Dogs’ MVP this year.
