Well, I'm still depressed after my brand-new Everett Silvertips got spanked by the Medicine Hat Tigers in the WHL Championship Series after Game 4 last night. I was at both Everett home games of the series and went to 13 games total all season, and I've got to say that WHL hockey is incredibly awesome! I had never followed the Seattle Thunderbirds (who suck by the way) or any other WHL team until this year when Everett started playing and after just one season I've become a diehard fan.
Anyway, are any of you guys out there fans of any of the CHL teams? And, who do you predict for the Memorial Cup champion among the Medicine Hat Tigers (WHL), Guelph Storm (OHL), Kelowna Rockets (WHL-Host Team) and the eventual QMJHL champion, most likely to be the Gatineau Olympiques with their 3-0 series lead.
I think that Medicine Hat will pull it off as they played exceptionally well in the WHL this year and swept the Championship Series. Plus, I want a WHL team to win and I don't like Kelowna, lol.

Hey, I won't diss major-junior. The WHL Calgary Hitmen games I've been to have always been entertaining. The Memorial Cup is one of the toughest championships in all of sports to win. I hope the Tigers can take it. The people down in The Hat have to be happy with both the success of the Tigers as well as the Calgary Flames!
