CJHL Weekly Rankings
CJHL Weekly Top 10:
The Grizzlies continue to be a fixture in the national CJHL rankings as this week we are up to number 10.
I personally, don't put a lot of stock in these rankings to be honest as the leagues in the West of the country are widely regarded to be a better standard than the leagues east of Manitoba.
The Grizzlies are 10th on this list, but, I'd put them closer to third behind Brooks and Penticton. A little arrogant on my part being a BCHL and a Grizzlies fan,but, those have been my observations over the years.
However, that's to take nothing away from the teams who have made this list and an idea of the inform clubs and ones to watch so far in the 2012/13 season.
