The Brampton Inferno have once again taken a risk and have played with fire. The Inferno have made a trade with The Barrie Blizzard exchanging Brandon McMullen, Shawn Udema, Brody Barfoot, Matthew Bennett and Eric Benesch plus the Inferno’s second round pick in the upcoming NLL supplemental draft in exchange for Barrie’s first overall pick in the supplemental draft.
The Inferno hope that they will be able to land a star who has been cut by an NLL team that will give them the edge this season. The Inferno have also made a deal with the Durham Turf Dogs trading their pick first round pick and fourth round pick in the NLL supplemental draft for home town native John McClure.
The Inferno Roster is hard to evaluate at this moment as the Inferno have a lot of players who are trying out for NLL teams. The Inferno were one of the few teams who during this year’s entry draft took a risk and drafted players who were drafted by NLL teams. The top players that the Inferno could have back is Dhane Smith, Curtis Knight and Alex Crepinsek.
If the Inferno got these players back this season they would be a force to be reckoned with.
The Inferno have made risky moves this season as they traded their top three scorers from last year in Dylan Llord, Dan Williams and Brad Favero. The Inferno though will have Sean Thompson and Jamie Kirk. Thompson and Kirk all had productive seasons with the Avengers last year but it will be interesting to see how they play of the Inferno.
The Inferno team will be relying on John McClure to step it up this season after only having 35 points last season with the Turf Dogs. The Inferno though are expecting Steve Toll to lead this team and hopefully get back his game. The Inferno this whole off season have been playing with fire so they will either be burned by not having any of their drafted NLL players comeback or they will light the league on fire with a talented team.
