Although I hope we make the playoffs I can’t really see who’s going to be worse than us in the east this year except for MAYBE Kingston again

Along with Kingston, there are a few teams that don’t really project to be contending teams – and by January will likely in a similar situation as the IceDogs (sellers): North Bay, Hamilton and Barrie.

I say we don’t make the playoffs ... four reasons:

1 a Three goalies with essentially no OHL experience is not a recipe for success in the OHL.


2. Sure the defense will be decent to start the season depending on which OA return, but we need to sell anything with value at the deadline which likely won’t return in 20-21.

3.... scoring is going to be a problem made even worse once Thomas is traded at the deadline ...


4. But really we need to sell sell sell at the deadline... and if that is done it will make for some long nights in the second half of the season ...

I hate to say it but the Burke’s seem to want to keep the playoff streak in tact ... and if they abandon a proper tear down and rebuild to restock the draft pick cupboards, just to try and keep the playoff streak alive ... well then that definitely will set this franchise back even further... it would be yet another boneheaded decision by an Inexperienced management group with too much emotional / personal vested interest in the financial success of the team.

It’s time for us to pay the piper, finally miss the playoffs, and rebuild for another serious run in A couple years. As a long time season ticket holder I’m totally on board with a complete tear down and rebuild this season.

Sorry to offend the Burke cheerleaders in this group .. only one team in this league can sustain success without a complete tear down and rebuild ... we all know who they are.

Hey, only a few months ago you scoffed at a few posters for thinking that the Icedogs defence could even be considered “ok” (Wee bit optimistic lol) - and now you have upped the evaluation to “decent”.

Strohs, I’m also a little concerned the IceDogs are fixated on making the playoffs. In every story or interview "keeping that streak alive" gets mentioned. However, there are more than enough sub-par teams in the Eastern Conference that the IceDogs can make the playoffs and still do what needs to be done.

It is unreasonable to think the IceDogs will trade away everyone that should be traded (Hunter and Roberts) or can be traded this year (Tomasino), but if Akil Thomas and Jacob Paquette are NOT traded at the deadline – this franchise is in a LOT of trouble! It will signal to IceDog fans that we’ll never win a championship.

Really, really hoping one of the 3 emerges as a solid starter quickly.

I do feel this is our biggest liability at this point in time. D looks ok, we still have some fire power on the Offense.
