The West Coast Senior Hockey League’s 2009 Edition is starting to slowly unfold. With major signings by the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts and players rumoured to be moving around in the West Coast Senior Hockey League, there is definitely a shake-up about to occur.
As the season draws close, fans are anxiously awaiting to see what their teams will look like.
Will the Deer Lake Red Wings be contenders this year with their talented line-up featuring Druken, Langdon and Robinson? Will the Royals even be able to compete after their disasterous year? Will the Clarenville Caribous repeat as Herder Champs? What about Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts – will their signings improve their offense?
Newfoundland Hockey Talk’s predictions based on early rumours and signings:
- Deer Lake Red Wings
- Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts
- Clarenville Caribous
- Corner Brook Royals
Wings experience and heart will lead them to another first place in the league. The Cataracts were only 5 points behind the Caribous last year and with their off-season signings, they will be a very close second behind the Wings. The Caribous will be contenders but will not be able to compete with the depth of either the Wings or Cataracts this year. Their strong goaltending will not be enough this season to leap over the Wings experience of the new look Cataracts. The Royals – well, what can one say about this organization? Their lack of coaching, management and player talent on defense will keep this team in the basement.
