I know that we are losing a ton of our scoring power this season, but you have to be excited about where our defense is. We will in all likelihood be getting back 5 of our top 6 defensemen. Last year the Ams had the number 1 defense in the WHL allowing fewer goals than any other team. I thought our defense would be our weekness going into last season. I know you cant call last season a rebuilding season with so many 19 year olds, but going into the season we had a lot more questions than we do going into this season. Last season we had huge holes to fill in goaltender, and defense. Bob somehow got all of that turned around by the first of October and we never looked back. Bringing in Topping and Ryckman turned out to be huge pick ups for the Ams. I expect Rankin and Stromwell to have break out seasons this year and Fesser could really suprize some people.He quiatly had a very good season last year with limited ice time. I also am really excited to see if Mychan can start this season where he left off. He is that physical threat that the Ams never seem to have. I expect Bob to make 1 or 2 Offensive pick-ups before the season starts. Hopefully he can pull out some of that magic that he always seems to find in players who were underutilized on their teams.
PS does anyone know if we got anything from Kootenay for our Euro draft pick.
