I believe Santini's OJHL's rights are held by the Chargers and Terreri's by the Capitals. I would assume both would be obtainable but an interested team would have to pay both the OHL and OJHL team. Could be costly. $10,000+ each for players rights? Both are '91's so you'd only getting be them for a few regular season games and a playoff run.
Newmarket would love Terreri! LeBlanc has been hurt since November so maybe able to take that OA spot.
After that can't they have no OA room with Bonner and Davies.
How deep are the Canes pockets? Not sure!
Does St. Mikes have room for Santini?
I'm pretty sure the league dropped the "2 year" portion of the return to league rule during the summer of 2010. Any former OJHL carded player playing Major Junior or the USHL who wanted to return to the OJHL, would become the property of the last team he played for regardless of the length time outside of the league.
There's no way Jerome should go out and get a 5'9" forward, D-man or Zamboni driver. This team needs to figure out a way to manufacture some offense against the Dukes and presumably any other team they meet in the playoffs. Wellington plays such a strong puck possession game that the easily intimidated Hawks can't seem to win battles or beat the Dukes to open pucks. If they don't find some players that are willing to pay the price along the boards or retrieve the puck on broken plays this stellar regular season record will be all for not. Trenton needs a nasty piece of work that's disciplined and focused. I'm convinced if someone can push back a little and create some room for the talented forwards that are already on the team Trenton can beat the Dukes in a 7 game series. For the time being they're being held to the outside for most of their shots on net and Marble is going to continue to stop all the pucks he can see.
Zippers hit the nail on the head! Also, Yorke has only managed to put up 8 points in 12 games; not really lighting the house on fire...
With 1 or two cards left; I wonder what Jerome will go and find. The one thing about Wellington I have noticed is they are not intimidated by goon clubs. Wellington has a great powerplay and theyll kill you with a man advantage!
I think it would be silly to acquire an OHL overager; from what I've seen, a lot of them spend a fair amount of time in the box! Better off getting a role player off a bad team who really wants to play and win in this league!
Zippers is absolutely correct in his assessment. I've been saying it for more than two months now, Trenton needs one or two more guys like Shawn Hulshof. Big, strong forwards who can win battles on the walls and win loose pucks. Too often, at least against the Dukes, the Hawks have not been able to generate much sustained offensive zone pressure because they lose the initial battle, the Dukes make one or two good passes and they're on the attack again, forcing Trenton to chase the game. It's an exhausting way to play. If you can't win the battle on the walls and the majority of the 50/50 pucks you'll never win anything of significance.
