A good base, but not the immediate Grey Cup contenders predicted nor the chaos across the league with teams ready to close up shop due to the loss of players. The board of governors, who set the rules well in advance, provided GM’s a nice loophole with potential free agents, limiting Ottawa’s choices beyond the protected lists.
