Gonna go with Als, Riders and Edmonton miss the playoffs.
There wasn't a lot of big movement in the off season, apart from Toronto getting a lot of veteran players who all had injury issues, mainly from the Als.
The Als have shed a lot of veteran talent, and while they have an answer at QB, Durant has proven injury prone as of late. QBs have recently been dropping like flies in the league, so that is not a good scenario. They are in at the start of a re-build, I'm not expecting an awe inspiring performance.
Saskatchewan was abyssmal last year, and generally in our league, when an older NFL player comes up north, they seldom light up the place. KG is a solid backup though. I don't see enough improvement here to say Saskatchewan is going to crawl their way out of the hole this year.
Edmonton went through a management debacle and depleted a bit of their Canadian depth and last season they got in, mainly on the merits of a weak, injury plagued east division.
So why not anyone else?
Calgary, BC, Ottawa and Winnipeg have largely kept their rosters intact, and they were all competitive teams. They had no off season drama and no major overhauls.
Hamilton, last year was a better team then their record made them out to be. The problem has been, the Cats have been consistently plagued by injuries over the past few years. I have doubts that bug will continue, and given Masoli's experience as backup, should make the team even more resilient. The issue is Hamilton has lost quite a few receivers and the team to me, is starting to age.
That leaves Toronto. They made a lot of signings (mostly at the Als expense) in the off season, and while the majority of those signings were for vets with a history of injuries, I doubt all of them are going to get hurt. They also have Trestman and Popp coaching the team, which in my eyes is a beneficial move for the team. I think they've done enough to squeek into that number three spot in the east and keep the crossover at bay. The biggest issue I see though is who does Ray throw the ball to? SJ Green coming off a knee injury is the only name that stands out for me.
