If the Dogs can come into this game with an underdog(forgive me)mentality, like they have absolutely nothing to lose, then they have a ‘puncher’s chance’. The Soo, this year, have been nearly unbeatable. They are a powerhouse in the purest sense.

Maybe the same team that played Flint a little while back will come here.

Sure, we can dream, can’t we? But I’m expecting this Soo team to pretty much not break a sweat right through to the Memorial Cup.

Dreaming is a good thing, but, once reality kicks in, we will get spanked in this match.

Here is an example how the staff is doing things a little bit different than in past year. A short part of Bill Potrecz's article...

The IceDogs are in Oshawa Friday, Kingston Saturday and Kitchener next Tuesday before returning home next Thursday to face the high-powered Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds. A tough stretch of game to be sure, and Burke said the coaching staff is mindful of the team playing so many road games.

“You definitely need to monitor some things. One thing we’ve done this year that’s been different from the past is more days off for the players,” he said.

The idea came at the suggestion of associate coach Ted Dent, who has coached at the American League level.

“There is the grind of the season and it’s no different than our league,” Burke said. “So far, we’ve been finding if we can give the guys extra days off here and there it’s paying off. They’re more energetic and we can keep our energy levels up.”

I like Thomas but I am thinking that unless he picks up his game even more, including a good playoff run, that he may end up going early in the 2nd round.
Remembering that I am a fan of his and not picking on him.

That is my prediction as well, high to mid 2nd round. I was hoping he came back heavier/stronger (needs to visit Ham's gym) and was more aggressive on the puck in the corners or in our end. So far that hasn't materialized and I think the scouts are noticing.
