Vancouver Giants,The Best Junior Team Ever...so far


This past week, I went to my first Giants game in a few years at the old Pacific Coliseum. They beat Swift Current 8-1 to improve their record to a ridiculous 28-2-3 for an .894 winning percentage. If this were to hold up for the remainder of the season it will be the highest ever in CHL history. The '05 London Knights led by Corey Perry hold the record currently at .882 with the '71 Guy Lafleur led Quebec Remparts holding down second with an .879 Pct.
Perhaps even more impressive for the Giants is their ratio of Goals For to Goals Against. With 163 goals for and 64 against they have a ratio of 2.55 to 1. London had an impressive ratio of 2.48 -1 with 310 GF and 125 GA. The 1979 Trois Rivieres Draveurs (whatever that is) scored 527 goals and allowed 233 for a ratio of 2.26-1. Obviously this Giants team is in unchartered waters of domination, and it is more impressive that they have been able to stay dominant after winning the Memorial Cup a few years ago.
