Semi Final 1 Caledon Hawks vs Toronto Eagles
Semi Final 2 London Jr. Knights White vs Mississauga Ice Warriors (IW in easy Div shouldn't be in semis)
Predict Eagles vs London in Finals
Eagles to advance to Sarnia in close one
TE dad is annoying. But to say IW did better against London is an apples to oranges comparison. IW lost to London. London lost to Caledon 6-0, TE lost to Caledon 4-0 so I'm thinking that the Eagles did better. Not to say this guy is justified in his annoying posts. Just sayin'
You're right, it is apples to oranges.
TE is a top 10 team. IW is ranked 30th.
No one should be surprised that TE won their division. I'm surprised that IW won their division. It was the easiest division, but IW did beat a top 10 team, MW.
There were 3 top 10 teams in the semis and IW was certainly not one of them.
In the semis, TE got schooled by CH, a top 3 team. In the semis, IW was tied with LJKW, a top 5 team, with minutes remaining in the third period before losing by a 1-goal margin.
Yes, CH beat LJKW quite handily in the finals, but both teams played to a 4-4 draw in the round robin.
No one expected IW (ranked behind MW and PPP at the time) to make it out of the division, let alone win the division outright, and to make a game of it against LJKW.
IW overperformed and exceeded expectations whereas TE underwhelmed in the knockout stage.
