    Are the Tigres the real deal? - The Tigres have had a great start out of the gate..

    [​IMG]

    The Tigres currently sit atop of the QMJ East Division with 45 points through 27 games. This is also good enough for first in the entire QMJHL. Furthermore, the Tigres have scored 111 goals while only letting in 54 - that’s more than double what they’re giving up. Comparatively speaking, that’s the second highest goals for in the Q and if we are just looking at their own division, Rimouski has almost the same offensive production, but aren’t as sound defensively. Not bad, not bad at all.


    Now let’s take a look at Victoriaville’s management:



    @Mike_yacoub - Owner (7-1-1)

    Following a 45-point campaign in Season 6, Mike looks to be on his way to surpass his career-high and will likely accomplish it quite soon as he’s already at 29 over the last three weeks. Moreover, Mike has been producing in every single game that he has suited up for; making him a threat for the opposition to keep an eye on. The Victoriaville owner does need to improve on his discipline as he has been in the penalty box a handful of times. This could be harmful to the team moving forward if it continues. Additionally, Mike will need to cut back on his giveaways; his negative T-G is higher than what you want to see at this stage of the season regardless of being a forward.


    Overall, Mike is having a solid season to start and looks like he has put together a competitive roster that will be a challenge for the rest of the QMJHL.



    @looper_61 - General Manager (8-0-1)

    LOOPS! Coming off a Memorial Cup, Looper decided to stick around in the CHL and take a management role; perhaps thinking he could create another magical run to the finals. He’s having a hot start as he has not lost a game in regulation and seems to be crushing it offensively. Like his owner, Loops is likely to hit a new total in points with 32 so far. He previously had posted 64 for the Edmonton Oil Kings in Season 6. What concerns me going forward is that there hasn’t been any consistency regarding what position the GM is playing on any given night. Sure, it’s nice to have someone that can play wherever you need him to be, but it’s more ideal to play in the position you’re best suited for. This is something to look out for as the season progresses and how Loops handles moving around.


    Overall, Looper is crushing it and as long as one of his teammates keeps an oxygen tank nearby, this GM will continue to be a driving force for the Tigres. We don’t need him passing out like he almost did during Game 2 of the Memorial Cup finals.



    @dixonater - Assistant General Manager (6-3-0)

    Dix had a stellar Season 6 with 75 points and a 16-7-1 record. It’s not a surprise that Mike and Loops went after Dix in bidding and landed him for $5.25 million. He was quickly offered the AGM position after inking his one-season deal, keeping him down in the CHL. So far this season, Dix has tallied 27 points and has only been shut out in one game (vs Drummondville). The Tigres will need their AGM to continue to produce in order for them to keep their spot at the top of the standings in the Q. With that being said, Dix has only 14 takeaways and a -95 T-G so far this season. If he continues on this pace, that T-G could get scary and not in a good way. Imaginably this is due to forced plays and/or teammates not in the right spot for his feeds.


    Overall, Dix looks like a good pick up by the aforementioned management pairing and will be key to their success throughout the season.



    Rest of their starting roster (as of March 9):


    Forwards -

    1. @Mom1sec (7-0-0) - 18 points
    2. @AsTrOnOmYx (1-6-0) - 7 points
    3. @Agent-X-555 (3-1-0) - 15 points
    4. @Cmutimmah10 (7-2-0) - 32 points
    5. @Fordifide (8-1-0) - 25 points
    6. @Persian_Swag123 (7-1-1) - 26 points
    Defense -

    1. @kc2917 (9-0-0) - 8 points
    2. @mistohmurlee (5-2-0) - 4 points
    3. @jhorcher2018 (4-5-0) - 4 points
    4. @Joey-campbell (9-0-0) - 12 points
    5. @roha21 (4-4-1) - 4 points
    6. @TJaremey (3-0-0) - 2 points
    Goalies -

    1. @akizzle92 (9-2-0) - 2.18 GAA, 0.850 sv%
    2. @Landamov (12-2-1) - 1.83 GAA, 0.856 sv%


    When you quickly look at their other players, some of them do not stand out and appear to be having rough campaigns so far. The reason? A handful of these players have either just come over in trade or are newly promoted. So until we get a better viewing of these players, we’ll keep an open mind about them and trust Victoriaville’s management on their decisions. There’s no reason not to right now with how they have started the season.


    All in all, the Tigres have a fantastic duo between the pipes that will steal them games when needed, some gems on the blue line with KC and Joey and a forward group that has the depth required to push them to victory.


    It’s too early to say if they’re legitimate contenders, especially after a few moves, but there’s no reason they should not stay at or near the top as weeks go by.



    Well-done, Tigres.​

    @b_tpa was a useless AGM, an even more useless GM (atleast Willy was on besides when it was his games), and a pretty bad owner (according to his own teammates).

    He don't wanna go to the Titans cause Willie is there.
