Junior Dynasty?

from Bob Duff of the Windsor Star,

Today, the Windsor Spitfires reign atop major junior hockey for the second year in succession, and many without even a glimmer of historical significance are ready to anoint them the greatest junior hockey dynasty of all time.

That, it says here, is not the case, though the argument is far from over.

This is a debate that will be years in the settling and in reality, may never be settled, taking into account all of the variables that must be considered.

Comparing sporting eras is never an exact science. In junior hockey, it is especially daunting.

Some of the best junior teams of all time were assembled during the sponsorship years, when NHL teams had working agreements with junior clubs and supplied them with prospects from across the country.
