2010 All Over Again: Montreal Adapts and Pulls Away From Canadian Crowd

It was supposed to be a rebuilding year. Seven core members of Montreal’s New Skids on the Block had retired in the off-season after yet another playoff heartbreak. It was supposed to be the year when their nearest Canadian rivals—namely Terminal City and Toronto—surpassed them, swallowed them up and left them behind. It was supposed to be the least competitive year for Montreal Roller Derby since 2009.

Instead, the Skids put in the best performance in Canadian WFTDA playoff history (finishing 4th in their Division after a tough loss to Minnesota in the 3rd place game for a shot to advance to the championship tournament) and finished the season 15th in the WFTDA, eight spots higher than their next Canadian opponent (Terminal City). This was Montreal’s highest ranking since April 2014 and tied for the team’s highest end-of-season ranking of all time in 2013—the year they climbed as high as 8th in the Association.
