So last night was the opening night of the season, here are my predicitions for the season. Victoria - With the moves they have made this summer its hard not to see them playing in the Mann Cup this summer. Might not end up being first in the regular season because Vinc might not be here but I don't think they will fall past being in 2nd with Flindell in net. This team has a lot of offensive firepower that I think going to outscore teams until they get Vinc in town. Langley - Will be interesting to see how they deal with the loss of Ratcliff, can Brandon Goodwin, Shayne Jackson and Alex Turner all step up their games to make up for the loss of Ratcliff. Will see how important Rod Jenson is to them on the bench at the start of the season with his suspension, I wonder how much it will affect him. MacDonald will be the key to them again this season. Coquitlam - Another team that will have great goaltending with Rose in net all season, they could be in trouble if Dobbie injury is serious and has to miss the season. One of the few teams in the league that has a better group of lefties on offensive the righties. New West - I just cant see New West missing the playoff 2 years in a row I expect Richards to make sure of that. The thing that will hurt them is how many games can Crowely and Schuss get in. The more these 2 guys play the better off their will be but only play 5 games each could be hurting the teams chemistry on offensive. Be interesting to see them get back to playing faster and transitioning more out of their own end, so many more teams are trying to play this way. Maple Ridge - After a tough last season I think they will be out to prove to everyone that last season was a fluke, having Dickson in the lineup all season will be a plus as well as having Dalgarno, Pascas and Murphy all on the left side this year. Getting Macintosh and Mallory in the draft also will help out this team a lot. But the biggest move I feel like they made was to get Levis in net a big upgrade from their goalies from last season. Burnaby - A good young team that is going to try and beat a lot of teams in transition with McFetridge and Salt. I think on offensive they are going to have a problem because they are so dominate right handed and will have very little support on the left side. And I feel like they will suffer a seatback after making the playoffs last season. Nanaimo - With the moves they have made this offseason, this is the easy team to predict, hard to see them having a good season as they have the least amount of talent out of anyone. They will need huge season from Boychuk and Bremmner to have a chance this year. Sure they are the only ones that believe that they can actual go out and win games this year as no one expects them to.
