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.

It seems to be a trend. Many Cumberland kids ending up with 67's at all age group. How they do it??? Beats me.

Wild are already cutting players? And tryouts don't even start till tomorrow?? That's pretty ruthless.

As a whole.. Nepean AA is less talented but they play more as a team with better coaching. Although there are a few talented kids on the AA team that would have success in AAA. (1 D in particular.. but he is not trying out)

Smart parents! I keep hearing lots of parents thinking about doing this. Even parents of the up and coming age groups are wondering if it's all worth it. HEO Minor has to figure out a way to attract the best players to AAA.

That b kid from the Valley is making Titans! Which D is sent packing?

Seriously, it makes for a very long season


I hear ya, and each age group has at least one and usually two teams in this position.

The top two Sens scorers were Kanata players, while the 3rd and 4th scorers came from Nepean and had moderate offensive success. Meanwhile all 9 forwards on the Nepean AA team had more points than any Nepean AAA player but they racked up a lot of those points against some relatively weaker teams. So the truth is that you could replace the Nepean AAA players with the Nepean AA players and not much would change. At this point it's pretty tough for any player to stand out in AAA but lots of players are good enough to fill the roster. Coaching and Team play are the keys to improving on last year's Sen's results.

Agreed, this is indeed the key.

If they find some new players during tryouts in the "interchangeable" category who either add to team play better, or who perhaps fall into the "talent identification" category of player and who are able to gradually step up their performance over the season as they gain AAA experience, that would be a bonus, but probably a small impact overall.

It will mostly come down to coaching and the overall team environment if they are going to improve.
