After another sub .500 season in 2009, Cobra Kai underwent a radical makeover this offseason, with the team adding a slew of rookie free agents. However, as these rookies learn the ins and outs of BTSH, they join a team that is still assimilating many mid and late season additions from last year. As a result, Cobra Kai’s 2010 opening day roster barely resembles the opening day roster from 2009, and only three players remain from the team’s inaugural game in 2006.
One of Cobra Kai’s focal points this season will be to stabilize its goaltending situation. After last season’s revolving door of goaltenders, which included Paul “P.J.” Lopez, Minkus, Enayet “Retail” Rasul, Kevin Au, and one game with no goalie, the Dojo is hopeful that rookie Peter Lang can return the team to the consistency of the Stefanie Volanto era…although there are no current plans to change the team’s name to “Lang’s Heroes”.
Professional Wrestler They Closely Resemble: CM Punk. Despite some extremely impressive wins in the past, we’re still waiting for them to unleash their full potential. However, if and when they do, they could legitimately be a top contender.
