Week 22 – One Month To Go

Canadiana Music Moments continue as we look to Vinny’s East Coast roots and give listen to Sloan.

WHAT HAPPENED THIS WEEK?

  • Erty had a huge week with 39 points
  • He went 3-0, as did Rolphy, Cordy, & Derko
  • Cordy jumped ahead of Fulty into 1st
  • Derko sits in 3rd, one point behind Fulty, and with the injuries to Cordy & Fulty lately, D could come up the middle
  • And don’t count out Rolphy as he just refuses to be shaken. He’s gone 21-5 in the new year – hottest team in 2016
  • GoJo’s on a bit of a run: 6-2-1 in past 3 weeks
  • EZ’s quietly working on #teamtank as he’s taken only 3 games in the last 7 weeks.
  • Haukster’s been putting together winning weeks and could catch ORV
  • ORV doesn’t want to drop in the standings since he traded away his 1st rounder (no surprise, really… he’s never been afraid to trade). He’s already dropped one spot since the trade.

GET TO KNOW ME!

Time to get to know your OFHL Franchises. This week’s spotlight…. TEAM VINNY

  • 12th season of operation
  • 1st season: 2004-2005 (the season of the strike)
  • First real season: 2005-2006 finished 7th out of 11 (0.340 winning %)
  • Worst finish: 10th (2x) 2008 (last place) & 2013

  • Highest pick: 1st overall – Steven Stamkos TB in 2008
  • Team Icon…
Ah, yes... the Williams Lake Vinny Table at Horty's misses it's regular and singular attendee ever since he transferred the franchise to Quesnel. His weekly order of small coffee (6 cream) and an onion bagel with blueberry cream cheese is his lasting legacy.
