It’s only early in the West Coast Senior Hockey League season, but one can’t help and think that maybe this year, the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts will be the 2009-2009 West Coast Senior Hockey Champs.

This was the team that many fans criticized the last few seasons but the Cats executive held true to their commitment to build a strong team that would become a contender.  Fans this year can cheer loudly as this years roster is a dominant force.

However, is the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts great start to the season a real surprise?  Here at Newfoundland Hockey Talk, we don’t think so.  If you look at this team, it was by far one of the most impressive teams last season given their situation.

Yes, you’ve read that correctly.  The Cats were a great team last year.

In 2008-2009, the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts were just 5-points behind the Clarenville Caribous and finished in third in the league.  That’s impressive for a team that struggled offensively and lacked a big name player to help this young team in their rebuilding.

The management and executive of the Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts knew they were on the right track with this team and this year stepped it up a notch and signed some big names that brought experience and offensive power.  It is paying off for them as they are now starting to gel in this young season.

The Grand Falls-Windsor Cataracts have one of the most impressive teams on paper and that is starting to translate into performance on the ice.

Yes, the Cataracts appear to be for real and this 2009-2001 West Coast Senior Hockey League may just see new champs at the end of the season.
