Windsor is in similar spot as Saskatoon Blades was in few years ago, knocked out in first round.
Now just waiting for Memorial Cup, becoming very cold due to lack of play.
Best chances of winning the Memorial Cup is between 3 league Champions now, whomever that will be.

And they're off to Seattle, saw the bus go by this am. Saw that someone was trying to put a fan bus together, wonder if she got the numbers she needed. Would have loved to have gone but other committments for the weekend already.

Receive an email back from Shaw, huge bummer they will be airing Eastern Finals. Kelowna makes it passed Seattle they will be airing WHL Championships.

So all those former Regina & Lethbridge residents get to see them play.

9 goals scored between Seattle & Kelowna, unfortunately Seattle got 5 of those goals.
Its only game 1, as always I'm good with a split.
