Default Time to grade Niagara at the half way mark?

We are 2 games away from the actual mid point of the schedule and with nothing going on for two weeks.... h....
This might be a good time to grade our team as a whole, from say A+ to F if we desire.

Niagara has played 32 games, with a record of 16 wins..... 11 losses...... 3 OTL's.......2 SOL's ; for 37 points.

We are 4th in the Eastern Conference and 11th Overall in the OHL

We are 3 points behind Kingston who have 40 points and we have one game in hand on them.

We are 4 points ahead of Ottawa who have 33 points and we have two games in hand.

We are 5 points ahead of Peterborough who have 32 points and we have one game in hand.

This team still has a lot of growing to do but, so far, they are better than I thought they would be..

I am giving our team a score of B-

With 2 games before the official halfway point the team could still get halfway to Billy’s prediction at least points wise so B+

I would agree with your grade if it wasn't for the fact that they have had too many games that they decided not to show up and the pathetic power play loses them some marks as well

Am I wrong in thinking or saying we're actually 16-16? 11 regulation losses, 3 overtime losses and 2 shootout losses adds up to 16 losses. We're a .500 team. With that being said I still like that we're in 4th place in the East ( a lot higher than I predicted) but there is still 36 games left in the regular season time will tell. I say C+ or B- as well.

Nope because the five extra time looses will be ties if they go with the old system it will be 14 11 7.

I agree...B- at best.....too many of the other column games were just because of irresponsible play and lack of effort.Most of these could very well ended up in the W column ,with just a little bit extra effort.

The league average is 36 points or .562 Win %.

A letter grade of C or C+ would be a .500 record (32 points).

A letter grade of B- would be a team slightly below the league average of .562 (36 points).

Since the Ice Dogs are slightly above the league average .578 (37 points), my letter grade is a B.

For a team most expected a .500 record from, the Ice Dogs are significantly above expectations:
<> 4th in the East (4 points ahead of Ottawa and 2 fewer games played).
<> Surprisingly, 8th in the OHL (Win %).


Go Dogs!

If you didn't win, you lost. They've taken to the ice 32 times, won 16 and lost 16. That's .500 in my books. (Don't care about loser points, that's why more than half the league would be above .500)

Being in 11th place in the league pretty much solidifies that. Win half your games, be half way up the standings.

Either way they have a better record than I predicted. Still don't think there is enough talent to make noise this year or win a championship next. But, the first half was better than I expected.

Goaltending: A
Defence: B-
Offence: C
PP: D
PK: B+
Lineup management: D (for the simple fact that #67 is getting ice, when #68 sits in the stands)

Overall: B-

Including OT loses, actually brings up another interesting stats.

There are only 7 teams with fewer losses than Niagara:
SSM 8.
Sarnia 10.
Barrie 12.
Kingston 13.
Kitchener 13.
Windsor 14.
Saginaw 15
