    Good luck chaos, looks like this should be a close one.

    On first glance it appears to me that Belleville has the slight (but definite) advantage between the pipes, and possibly in coaching as well, depending on how you value accomplishments in junior hockey and other various leagues. Sutter has a fairly impressive Adams record for this level though (1,2,2,5 plus at least 1 vote in 5 other seasons), and much more top league experience than both Belleville's coaches combined.

    Hopefully I have time to prove Halifax has better offensive punch, and I look forward to comparing the defenses after reading up a bit more on Belleville's blue-liners.

    regular season difference between these teams: one voted, the other did not. otherwise we have a tie for 2nd. I look forward to the arguments provided in this matchup.

    At first glance, I'd like to know more regarding who will do the corner work for Bellevilles 1st line.

    As well I feel like Anisins playmaking is wasted on that 3rd line, he is known for being a playmaker, is Pettersons goal scoring good enough?


    The secondary scoring provided by both 2nd lines is a huge plus for the Sleepwatchers. Christian and Hiller are both low contributors offensively. I think Halifax has the advantage at all three positions on the 2nd lines.

    Joe Carveth has a better playoff resume then Any Player on the Bulls. Leading a cup winner (and the league) in playoff goals one year and then leading his team to game 7 of the cup finals leading the league in playoff points and assists another year.

    Well..I changed the lines up a while ago but I guess I didn't do it in the roster thread, and kept it in the assassination thread.

    I'll make some changes.

    I'd like to point out that the Bulls said nothing to dismiss my concerns, and again the secondary scoring provided by Carveth, Carson, Bullard etc.. is a huge plus for Halifax.

    It's not like I have the time to argue with you over this..there is a reason I didn't want to be apart of this. Cause I knew I couldn't argue anything come playoff time due to time restraints and lack of internet.

    Its not like my half a paragraph closing statement was too daunting, anyways neither myself or Stoneberg argued at all. Just stating a few obvious points. Should we just not say anything at all because you are busy?

    Did I say that?

    It was pretty clear that I surrendered that point. Otherwise I would have touched on it. Just don't see why you needed to point that out.

    Congrats.
