Like you statsy, i too am unbiased but know a lot of people and know alot of these kids al over the league. yes i have my favourites but i try to not let that cloud my judgement. I look at the people in Misssie, markham stoufville, Durham, etobicoke's midgets and int and have to give em credit. You are doing a great thing with this forum because girls need to know and need to hear. you call durham a long time power in hockey, say like the new jersey devils. but the devils have been known to win at all one year and tank it the next for whatever reason. yet those same players will win it the next year. those are also the facts. the wquestion is, is this group like the new jersey devils or like the new york rangers. this past month, one has to give them credit because they earned it. that is all im saying. and as i said before, i felt you missed the fish earlier and now you have them in. you are missing durham and the aeros, and you dont have them in yet but they will be. Hamilton, well, yuorinclusion of them is questionable but not without some thought as you have pointed out. well they probably enjoyed it for the last time.
