BC-With Rourke, Figueroa, Burke & Burnham gone, that’s some big chunks to fill on offence. If they can’t replace Burke’s production, & hole @ LT, then they’ll be in trouble. Only 4-5 w/o Rourke. Almost certain to have a QB controversy sometime this year IMO.
Edm-MLB & SAM set. WIL at this point likely Woodly A.'s to lose. My Elk buddy tells me the DL may have 330 lb Pelley, 305 lb Ross @ DT with another 300 lb’er in Ceresna @ DE. If so, that’s some major beef for OL’s to contend with. As you say, there will be competition everywhere in Elkland.
SK-Completely agree Blake will transition to G. OT’s a big question mark.
WPG-Bombers have to get younger & move out older guys on OL. Or, like Bladek in Regina, risk losing them after year 3. Riders kept LaBatte so Bladek left. Kolankowski is 31, never started much until last year. Was on the Bomber Practice Squad for all but 2 games in 2021. Had Couture been healthy he wouldn’t have been starting. Eli is a natural centre but hasn’t played much since being drafted. IMO there will be a change @ CTR this year.
Ott-With Vaughn retiring, Bull recovering, big question @ OT.
