How Good Is PEI?

As Ms. Eclectic and I watched the curling match yesterday afternoon involving PEI, we wondered how on earth the team had a record of four wins and only one loss. And now that PEI has defeated winless NS, their record is 5-1. The team just didn't seem all that good to us, in what limited opportunity we have had to watch them.

This morning I wrote to co-blogger, Alan, that I predict PEI will not be curling in the 2010 Scott Tournament of Hearts on Sunday, and might not even be curling on Saturday, despite their being at the top of the round robin so far. I even speculated that their 5-1 record came from beating teams with bad records (to which PEI admittedly contributed).

Well here's their record, following this morning's draw:
They defeated Saskatchewan, who are 2-3
They defeated New Brunswick, who are 2-4
They lost (13-2) to Alberta, who are 3-3
They defeated the Territories, who are 2-4
They defeated Manitoba, who are 3-3
They defeated Nova Scotia, who are 0-6.

In other words, they haven't even faced any team with a winning record yet.

Maybe I'm being too harsh, but don't look for PEI to be at the top of the standings Thursday night.

Doc - this was my thought too - they have yet to play the real teams. But as O'Rourke pointed out, they beat Gaudet and she was pretty good at the national level.
