As the Otters await their opponent for the OHL Western Conference Finals (either London or Guelph) it's a good time to take a step back and look at this team and what they have accomplished. First of all, as they head into the next round, the Otters have won eighteen of their last nineteen games, they have some of the best talent in the OHL in players like McDavid, Fox and Brown, Devin Williams has played lights out and Kris Knoblauch has control of this talented club from top to bottom. Do I need to say anything else. But there is more, these are some of the best young men I've had the pleasure to interview. They are courteous, kind and cheerful. If players reflect an organization, then this edition of the Otters is top notch. They make you want to root for them and see them succeed. I think their character comes through in crucial situations too, like the comeback wins and overtime wins. This is more than just a good hockey team, it is the epitome of what a team and organization should be like at the junior hockey level.
