“A” LEAGUE 2016/17 WINTER TEAM PREVIEW
Shall I say – the team to beat! I love this team – balanced all the way around! Good goaltending, excellent defense and very efficient forwards! Ward Peterson in the fifth round – Please! What a steal!
It appears Captain Rex Baker did his homework this time. Very solid team! Can definitely see Jeff Curran moved back to defense and either Craig Bastuba or Marty Papesh moved up to provide a little more offense. Nice squad.
Team looks like it will struggle for offense. Can’t see too much second line offense on this team. Dar could be a little busy with a wandering defense.
This team will score and of course with Billy Mac Jr. in nets – can’t go wrong there. Having the top rated forward(Nate McCoughtry) and goalie(Billy Mac Jr) is a pretty formidable combination! But – the defense looks to be the major achilles heel on this squad!
Similar to the Habs on the offensive side – second line scoring will be very hard to come by. Defense and goaltending is exceptionally solid.
Now – If this were the 70’s – look out for this team! It appears this squad is a little long in the tooth with six players including an aging goalie, who rescinded his retirement in nets, well into their 60’s! Maybe experience will work out, with some very talented younger players mixed in?
