So the only unknown is who coming out of OHL, as of tonight it's looking like Oshawa Generals they are up 3 games to 1 over Connor McDavid's Erie Otters.

I really like our chances.
Don't count out gold medal goalie & 2013 Memorial Cup winner. Quebec Remparts went out and got him for this reason.

Added:
Last Top 10 CHL ranking before playoffs:

1) Oshawa Generals
2) Kelowna Rockets
5) Rimouski Oceanic
Honourable Mention: Quebec Remparts

Good thing that the otters are out...we would have to hear the orgasm fest the sports casters would be doing over McDavid for the next week or so.

Just like Im glad that the Laffs never get into the playoffs because if they do you would think they won the stanley cup

Winning the round robin does not guarantee winning the Cup (just a by into the finals). As long as Kelowna makes top 3 that ensures a chance to play for the Cup.
Do not want to be4 #4 on the list.

Added: few times the #3 team has saved the best for semi's & the finals.

Also i you dont want to play in that tie breaker game either. You would play 3 games in 4 nights if you made it to finals and if you are Quebec or Rimouski it would be 4 games in 5 nights.

I have high hopes of the rockets winning, but without knowing much about other teams its hard to say. I think that what makes this tournament interesting to is these teams no very little about how the other teams play other than what they have seen on video.

Very true jaz about tie breaker. We do know that Quebec Remparts went out & got WJC gold medal goalie & pervious Memorial Cup winner from Halifax Moosehead.
Just for this reason to win Memorial Cup, because he knows what it takes to do so. If he turns out games like what won either WJC in January, or 2013 Memorial Cup Championship. It could be lights out for the other 3 teams.

Not the start I was looking for and Madison Bowey was more of liability then anything else, no surprise.

True, with that at least 2 of Quebec goals could be directly contributed to by Madison foolishness/brain fart.
