I see London Halifax final, would be exciting but i also see Portland-Halifax and London-Portland. But the Blades might sneakily get to the final never know

IMO the Blade have the talent to "compete." Just not sure they could beat Halifax or Portland. Best thing about the mem cup is it is not a best of sseven series. Literally anything can happen in one game.

Love a Memorial Cup where it is actually the best of the best battling it out.
London, Halifax, and Portland where all the best teams in their respective leagues all season long.
Saskatoon has a good team, but I can't see them edging out all 3 of those powerhouses and winning.

My vote goes to London.
They have the best goaltending, their D-Core is right up there with Portlands, and they have the best forward depth.

This is gonna be a great tournament.. couldn't have predicted it better. If the Knights have solid goaltending, i'm confident that they can take it.

Portland looks to have the "easiest" schedule...they don't play on back to back days. Same could be said about Saskatoon, but they've got to play Portland/Halifax/London so that's anything but easy :emot-parrot:

I've been on the Knights wagon since '04-'05, so I'm pulling for them. As a Blazers fan though, just hoping it's anyone BUT Portland.

Definitely a small sample size. But I am going with portland. I went to the game 6 in edmonton. Portland absolutely dominated, they probably made one mistake (pouliot kicking the edm goal in his own net). But every rush edmonton had, the portland defence forced them to the outside to shoot.

Portland is just so complete from their offence to goaltending. (again small sample size as this was my first whl game as i just moved to edmonton)

Halifax has absolutely demolished every opponent they've played so far in the post season. It's really hard to go against them. There is so much talent there, it's kind of scary. That said, both the Knights and Hawks are good in their own right. Anything can happen. My money is on Halifax taking it this year with the Knights taking it next (as hosts)

Bo Horvat.. who ever gets him in the draft is getting a future captain, i see selke and lady byng potential in this kid. Not biased, just saying, while everybody else was out partying with the cup on monday he was at his billet family's house with friends.

Think David Backes.. we know gillis likes him

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Edler, Markstrom, Hansen, 2nd round pick 2014 to Islanders for Ryan Strome, 5th overall pick 2014

This is fairly even as well.

Back and fourth game between Halifax and Portland. Mackinnon and Drouin taking over so far.

If the Avs don't take Mackinnon with the 1st overall, they're gonna miss out big time.

Who would you rather have, Erik Johnson or Jonathon Toews?

They're gonna get Erik Johnson if they take Jones.

Jones looked really bad when he faced MacKinnon, MacKinnon just sped by him and got a good shot off. Didn't even hit him just slashed his stick after he shot. You can't do that in the NHL. MacKinnon > Jones.

As good as Mackinnon has been I still think Colorado takes Jones. Avs need defense more than they need more centers.

I agree they need defense. But if Mackinnon is going to be the next big star in the league, you just can't pass on him. You make room for him.

They can always trade Statsny or O'reilley for D at some point.

I think it will be a huge mistake if they pass on Mackinnon though.

I agree, but Seth Jones does have a local connection, I think in some ways that's something the team needs to get attention in the local media. But I'd take Mackinnon.
