This will be the big question this year: go with the absolute most skilled players or sacrifice some skill for size? The skating is really close now between all players trying out and the bigger players have other advantages even if they are not the absolute most skilled. There just isn't much room for small players who can't go into the corners and win the battles or stay in front of the net. A team of all big players will win by the end of the season.

Titans D are going to be huge! Not one small kid will make it. Forwards are more skilled than big. Pretty good mix.

^they have to take an import. Team will be really good outside of goaltending.

Titans goaltending?

One moved to Cyclones and an Aces kid is playing AA. There's a chance there's going to be 4 new forwards but 3 more like it.

What forwards aren't back?

Every team will have 3 new F and 1-2 new D.

67 have just under 40 skaters and 8 goalies. Cannot distinguish between AAA, AA and B kids.
It is going to be a long season.

Titans tryouts have started. 3 new forwards and 1 new D. I would be shocked otherwise.

Do the B goalies have potential to step up once they adjust and get some experience maybe? The Sens are going to have to pick somebody from the 5 who they think/hope can take a step. Or just ride the top guy. They could win more than last year just doing that.

Nepean goalie gets the call as #2 and they play the boy from last year more.

Where is the kid from the combine with the black gear, why is he not trying out?

Both the Wild and Titans are deeper and kids from other teams are going to get cut for that reason.

So deep that they use an 05 ap in playoffs and sat one d for most of the playoffs.

Wild are deep with forwards and at the D position. There will be some good players available to other teams to benefit from !

If you are taking cuts from other teams, you have little chance at beating those teams. So 67 expecting to do better than 3rd?

One of the best AA teams in the province, will have another great season with most players returning. Even if 1 or 2 of the kids trying out for AAA make it, the odds are the kids they displace come back down to Raiders AA as well. Plus you'd think from the number of Nepean B kids trying out for AAA, there is a strong group for the AA team to draw on from B if needed as well. Raiders AA is indeed a great situation.


Nepean has better AA kids than anybody else. It's still the second tier.

That is funny. For years the Rangers and Sting have been in the top three teams in AA and the Grads have been near the bottom. Now all of a sudden there are 6 outstanding players who are cut by the Wild before tryouts begin and who are locks to make the 67s. If you're going to stir up crap with a BS story at least make it plausible.
