So Windsor loses in first round of playoffs then gets into Memorial Cup because they are host city and then ends up winning. Need to change format, but will never happen. All about ticket sales and $$$.

Worked for Windsor, not so much for Saskatoon few years ago.

Added Later: in the last 17 years 5 host teams have won the Memorial Cup:
2004 Kelowna (losing in 3rd round in WHL playoffs)
2005 London (losing in final round in OHL playoffs)
2007 Vancouver (losing in final round in WHL playoffs)
2012 Shawinigan (losing in 2nd round in QMJHL playoffs)
2017 Windsor (losing in 1st round in OHL playoffs)

2018 Memorial Cup should have been hosted by QMJHL team.... since it 100th year the Regina Pats will be the host team.

To lose the first round only to win it is funny. Almost as good as not making the playoffs only to win.
