Agree! IceDogs do have a core of young players who have improved over the last 5 months. The “team” we know what it needs. Excited for the draft and camp this year to see if they hit some homeruns.

As for last year, can’t argue the IceDogs would be better off this year had they sold last year, but that could be said about every team except Guelph. But that is what junior teams do when they hit that cycle. Only one team comes out looking like a genius the others not so much.

Imagine how much stronger Ottawa, Saginaw, London and even Oshawa would be if they moved out talent for picks instead of trading them away for players to upgrade their teams that didn’t win.

For one reason or another they all failed. e.g., Ottawa: reluctant to spend a few more picks for another elite player. e.g., London: mismanaged their cards with lots of picks to spend. e.g., Niagara: Since Guelph won with a subpar GK, blame falls on the coach with a stacked team.

What is done is done - time to look forward: The 2020 OHL Priority Draft and...

One drafted superstar can change everything. Somebody with the total package: size, speed, hands. A first round draft pick who’s going to fill the net would ease the pain of this embarrassment of a season. He’ll sell tickets, he’ll sell other players on coming here.
Have to, have to hit on this one.
