They're gonna lose 4 in a row after winning 14 aren't they lol
Consistency is the key.
The moral of the story is show me a great goalie and I'll show you a great........
The 67's are not going to lose in 6 because of goaltending.
Guelph is a stronger team, the Storm have dominated the weak-willed 67's.
Not giving up them.....
1-0 good guys LFG
Now it’s a letdown within a letdown.
What a gongshow haha
First Belleville and now the 67's. Hockey Gods hate everything about Ottawa
It was a good run
Pretty unbelievable choke.
This might be worse than any choke the Senators ever pulled off. Disgusting effort by the 67's once the going got tough.
Full marks to the Storm: they completely outclassed Ottawa in every way.
Can we just have one nice thing? No?
Sens vs Leafs in 2001 is way (WAY) worse than this, imo. Tough to beat the Sens when it comes to choking/disappointment though, they set a high bar.
It's tough for me sewer the 67's too hard, as it (clearly, imo) would have been a different series with DiPietro in nets. I'm definitely not excusing the 67's overall effort or (lack of)execution in the last four games, but the step down from MD to CA changed the series (and subsequently, the season).
The way the season ended leaves a bitter taste after the fantastic regular season + 14 straight playoff wins. I really would have liked to see them in the Memorial Cup, even though I think they would have been outclassed by the Q/Dub teams without Mikey in nets.
Well, that was hard to watch.
Not much to say, Guelph definitely deserved it, they turned it up and Ottawa couldn't match. (Which is ironic, as that's basically what Ottawa did to other teams all year long)
The team definitely lost confidence once DiPietro went down. They abandoned a lot of what made them successful all year long. Andree played well, but did let in a few softies that I'm sure he would want back. I expect him to be very good next year, that series was definitely a learning experience that will serve him well in the future.
Was a great season and we definitely had a lot of fun over the year going to the games. Will be fun to watch next season if they can continue to be this good and finish the job.
The loss had alot more to do with Guelph being much better and the 67s not knowing how to respond to adversity.
The Bahl injury was far more detrimental than Dipietro. Andree was not the reason they lost. Game 4 after getting spanked in game 3 was one of the worst push back efforts ive seen from a team in my life. I knew it was done after that game. Chmlevski was one of the only players competing like the season was on the line what a player.
Noel Hoefenmier is a horrible selfish hockey player. Once Bahl was injured it exposed how bad he is. No way Arizona signs him.
If Arizona hasn't signed Hoefenmeyer by now, they won't. I expect him back with the 67's as one of the overage players. I have a feeling that Keating could be one of the others. I would expect that DiPietro and Chemelevski go pro. Marco Rossi in his draft year is going to be a sight to behold - he will be a top ten, possibly a top five pick in June 2020.
Bahl was clearly hurt - his mobility was compromised when he came back. Full marks to the kid for gutting it out, but we needed him full strength to deal with the Suzuki line. That line just ran roughshod over us for four games straight, and there was seemingly nothing we could do about it.
Check back at Christmas, though - Ottawa should still be one of the top teams in the OHL, as this group has possibly one more run left in them before they have to re-tool. Guelph, on the other hand, will be in the basement and they know it - they shoved all their chips into the middle of the table to make a run this year.
FWIW, I've got Prince Albert to win the Memorial Cup...
Anyone else find the Bitten trade very strange?
Me too. I checked the main 67's board to see what I was missing, and they all seem somewhat perplexed also. Bitten is a local kid, well regarded by the organization, and wasn't taking up an OA spot. There must be some other moves afoot that will see a top six forward move in here, possibly an overager, because otherwise it doesn't make much sense. They sure didn't get much for him either...
