The Kingston Frontenacs are definitely the OHL version of the Leafs -- that bad team which can't even bottom out properly.
The only take on the Fronts winning all three games this weekend is that the real race for them is trying to catch Owen Sound, who's three points ahead. That way, they would drop from No. 3 to No. 4 in the draft order. Slipping down a rung would help their odds of taking a player who, you know, might actually report to Kingston. (Shades of the '05-06 Leafs: They had four power-play goals in a 4-3 overtime win today, complete with the captain who couldn't be traded, Justin Wallingford, scoring the game-winner.)
The Fronts are only three points behind the Sound Attack and have three games in hand. Oh, and they're only 11 points out of a playoff berth with seven games left. Good luck with that.
Meantime, proof there's no trust left in the world: Folks at the Fronts Talk message board are calling shenanigans over the official attendance of 4,005 at Friday's game against Barrie.
Unfortunately for Frontenacs owner Doug Springer, only teams which have have won a playoff series this decade get the benefit of the doubt these days. Then again, some would say that Springer's shenanigans are cruel and tragic, which makes them not shenanigans.
