Claimed:Toronto Legion: Mid-Season Review 6/6 final


Recommended Posts

Please grade for Jan.5 - 11. Just posting now for discussion.



Toronto Legion

20-15-9 (5th NA Conference)

GF: 127 GA: 142




Just past the halfway mark of the season and the Toronto Legion are on the outside looking in. They're currently 10 points behind Calgary for the final playoff spot and are in tough to break into the post-season. There's quite a few reasons for their lack of a playoff spot, but we'll cover all facets of their season so far.



The Legion only have four players who've scored more then 50 points so far this season. Their leading scorer is rookie Sachimo Zoidberg, and is proving his scoring touch from the VHLM wasn't a fluke with 56 points. Zoidberg's line mate, Tyler Cote, put up 51 points of his own and is a big reason for Zoidberg's success. Jerrick Poole is the Legion's third highest point getter and is having a fantastic season so far. Poole's 52 points put him tied for third in the league amongst defenders in the league. Sundberg is the last Legion player to put up more then 50 points with 55, 28 of those being goals. Beyond that the Legion don't have much offensive depth and their lack of scoring has hurt them so far this season.



Jerrick Poole leads this young defense with 148 hits and 109 shot blocks. His -7 rating is a bit worrisome but he double shifts constantly to compensate for the Legion's three defenders. Rookie Jaime Hill isn't making a huge impact on the offensive front, but is nipping on Poole's heels in the defensive categories. Her 147 hits and 98 shot blocks are knocking on the door to overtake Poole and has a +2 rating. Hill can only get better and the promise is there for that to happen. The Legion's other rookie defender, Ed Grr, is a bit further back of the other two. His 11 points, 31 hits and 70 shot blocks leave something to be desired, but he is a young player.





TOR G is having a very solid season despite all expectations being much lower. He's played every game this season and is posting a respectable 2.98 GAA with a .910 save percentage. He's gathered a shutout and even helped out with the goal scoring with 2 assists. In the minors they have Fedir Okranitz doing his best imitation of a brick wall. 37-2-2 with a 2.73 GAA and .902 save percentage is giving Legion fans a lot to look forward to as their goal-tending situation in the future looks very bright.


The biggest thing to remember with this team is that they are a very young squad with the majority being S39 and S40 draftees. The Legion have brought the fans in and not disappointed with some high flying games and a winning record. Toronto looks to finish out the season strong, and we'll be back with a post-season recap.

Content: 3/3 - Zoidberg is certainly having another good season to carry over from his time in the minors. I don't think Toronto is making the playoffs this season, but you guys are just starting to grow and have a solid core with a bright future ahead of you.
