The 2011/12 Brampton Battalion

So here's the deal... I wanted to be done this by May, but due to time restrictions and travel it is happening now. For 20 days, In The O... will be looking at each OHL team and thanks to a consensus Panel will formulate what we believe the 2011/12 roster for these teams will look like. To decide this, the consensus panel first pitched who they thought, would be the OA players for the team. We then took 2 of their OHL priority Draft selections and added them to the roster. We did not look at 2010 selections in determining the roster and looked at a 13 Forward, 7 Defence and 2 Goalie system, thus leaving 8 player cards open for each team. We did not look at trades or other additions to the roster. Just simply took the 10/11 Roster and made minor changes. Sounds simple doesn't it... here is what In The O... projects as the roster for... The Brampton Battalion

Over Age Players - Ian Watters, Michael Santini, Jonathan Johansson
OA's Cut - Craig Moore
2011 Priority Draft Selections - Brandon Robinson (F), Keegan Wilson (G)

Goaltenders - Matej Machovsky & Keegan Wilson - The sole purpose of drafting Wilson was not only because he fought his way to get noticed, but much like the 2010/11 season, thrusting a young European goaltender into the Number 1 spot would be too much. Even though Keegan would be the rookie at the age of 19, he can keep Matej focused which would equal success for Brampton in 11/12.

Defence - Jordan Auld, Jordan McNaughton, Marcus McIvor, Spencer Abraham, Dylan Blujus, Cameron Wind, Zach Bell - This young D-Corp was just amazing last season and can still play together with no changes for another 2 seasons.

Forwards - Philip Lane, Michael Santini, Adam Lloyd, Connor Jarvis, Sam Carrick, Andreas Tsogkas, Jonathan Johansson, Dominic Alberga, Brandon Robinson, Barclay Goodrow, Matt MacLeod, Alex O'Neil, Ian Watters - The team had problems scoring last season and another years experience should help. The 2 OA forwards provided so much offence last season that it may look like a phenomenal D effort will be needed every night.

That is it... Just that simple. This is just a quick look at who could be on the team, with the importance placed on who will be playing as an OA or who will be cut from the Team.
