The Winterhawks are the Best Major Junior Team


awesomeness

That’s a given. What makes them so great?

  1. Fifteen NHL draft picks in the past two years. Four first-rounders, five second-rounders. Oh, and let’s know forget a player who did not get drafted, but, go invited to go to a training camp and got signed.

  2.  Around ten players signed to NHL contracts.
  3. After being eliminated in the second round of the WHL play-offs in 2010, we made it to the league finals this year. Next year, we look to advance to the Memorial Cup, something that nobody a few years ago would have been talking about.
  4. We’ve got not one, but, two of the most hated players in the WHL, because, of their aggressiveness.
  5. A few years ago, we were at the bottom of the standings. 2010, we made the play-offs. This year, we were the division and conference champions. Next year should be another fun year.

Who can argue with that? I can’t.
