If anyone is wondering why the Petes rolled the dice this year. Just look at the Eastern Conference. The Rangers would be leading. They'd have a better goal differential than everyone in the East, and here we are holding on to 6th in the West. Trust me, we're holding it, Sarnia's going to push this team. They might not have enough points to lead the East, but they are likely better than anyone in that Conference as well.
I'd be curious on people's thoughts. If this team was in the East what would have you done at the trading deadline?
I don't think that we have the stuff to have won and OHL championship this year, but three-four rounds of playoff revenue is a big potential payoff no matter how you look at it.
Our record vs. Eastern Teams:
North Bay: 1-0
Overall Record against the East: 11-2-1
Record vs. the West: 14-12-3
I think that you'd see a similar pattern in all Western Conference teams.
Tom Conaway circa 2000 - "At times goals were harder to come by than teachers at a Mike Harris pep rally."
