As expected, goalie trades were made on January 10th.  What’s unexpected is that they still have three.

2-NIPAWIN HAWKS (6) 23-17-2
Major statement this weekend with lopsided sweep over La Ronge.  Five game win streak for the Hawks, who changed their chemistry this past week with early returns being overwhelmingly positive.

3-FLIN FLON BOMBERS (3) 25-9-5
A lot of offensive forward mouths to feed on a powerplay that is already electric.  Goaltending was bolstered too.

4-LA RONGE ICE WOLVES (2) 22-16-3-2
The matchup with the Hawks may not be a great one for the Ice Wolves as they seem to match or exceed their physical presence, otherwise the Wolves are the most physical team in the league.

5-MELFORT MUSTANGS (5) 22-13-3-1
They’ve got games in hand and will need to use them wisely to avoid the dreaded 4th vs 5th quarter-final match up come playoff time.

6-YORKTON TERRIERS (4) 26-18-1-1
Loss of Ouellette stings, but Bond has given them back to back outstanding efforts, including 56-saves in a 2-1 win on Saturday.  Nevertheless, this team allows way too many shots on goal and that’s a dangerous way to live.

7-ESTEVAN BRUINS (11) 18-17-3-1
Plenty of games in hand and they’ve capitalized by earning 11 standings points out of a possible 12 in their last six games and are in the clear driver’s seat for the final playoff spot with lots of chances to keep moving upwards.

8-HUMBOLDT BRONCOS (8) 19-16-4-2
They continue to bring a great effort on a nightly basis, but not a lot of depth behind Foster-Shewchuk-Spadafora.

Klippers have lost seven of their last ten to fall a couple of games out of a playoff spot and will need to right the ship quickly to get back in the mix.

10-WEYBURN RED WINGS (10) 16-22-0-1
Joe Young gives them a shot each and every night, so for that reason alone you can’t consider them a gimme.

Eked out a gutsy win over Notre Dame on Saturday night that pushes them up a spot in the rankings.

12-NOTRE DAME HOUNDS (9) 15-21-3-1
Inconsistency has been their worst enemy all season.  Teams 9-12 in the rankings are almost interchangeable any given night.
