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.
Our defensive end play has been a concern for me as well.

Defence is definitely a concern but I’m wondering if it gets fixed when Lochead is back because everyone gets slotted properly

Do we have any idea when Lochead is coming back for sure?

We will get a little bit better when Lochead returns as one of the players now playing will be bumped to the spectator category.
Any thoughts on who will sit?
I have not heard anything about Lochead.

It's hard to sit any of them. They're all playing ok. But if I had to bet, I'm thinking there will be a rotation of Hunter, MacPherson, and Constantiou sitting. None of them deserve to get press box time really. But we have a bit of an embarrassment of riches when it comes to young Dmen.

I agree on the rotation but would say Ham before hunter

I would say Schaefer before Hunter, Ham, Constantinou or MacPherson... But doesn't mean that's what the coaching staff will do... I just see them trying not to sit MacPherson because it's his draft year. Schaefer won't sit because for some reason this team seems to love him. He's ok. But... You know, whatever. Ham has improved vastly from last year and become another staff favourite, so he's not going to be sitting.

I stand by my 3 man rotation. Even if I like the thought of Lochead and Hunter together more than any other defensive pairing.

A quick look at the next two weekends…

If February 12th rolls around and the Ice Dogs are still relatively close to Barrie (4 points?), they likely played some of their best hockey of the season!
