    Sidney and company will try to tie the Qmjhl's undefeated record tonight against
    the Bathurst Titan in Bathurst.If successful they will have a chance to break the
    record at home against Bathurst on Sunday.

    yeah, i think they would have done it no problem, their games aren't even close calls - they're winning by 3-4 goals every night. still, at the end of the day a 28 game unbeaten streak to start the playoffs ain't too shabby ;)

    Looks like they will tie the record, it's 5-1 in favor of the Nics with 8:00 to go in the 3rd.

    Done, and done.

    Congratulations to Océanic.

    If they win next game, (last of the reg. season right?), will they hold the record un-tied?

    And yet the winner of the Memorial Cup will still be Kelowna or Kootenay! :beatup:

    Brandon will be a challenge, granted.

    But that Q ballerina stuff... forget it.

    There's a reason that league rarely wins the Cup. It's more like a Swiss league than a pre-NHL league.

    I think the Oceanic streak will mean squat if it doesn't translate into something come playoff tourney time.
     
  12. Swiss league is a pro league, while the CHL is three junior leagues. :teach:

    Of course. It was only an analogy. You'd think someone with an academic's cap would have realized that!

    Yeah wonder why they bother playing the Memorial Cup.

    Forget Rimouski - the hottest team and the top player in the CHL

    Forget London and their 4 World Junior Championship Players...

    They should scrap the whole Memorial Cup and just give it to the Dub..

    Absolutely beautiful. It's extremely true, as that comment was ridiculous. London, Rimouski, Kelowna, Erie, all some solid teams, it will definitely be a challenge this year.

    Well I don't totally agree with the Q being a ballerina Swiss league...there is no denying that the WHL is a better league.

    Yes, London will be in the Memorial Cup as the host. And Oceanic might prevail in the tighter play of the playoffs leading up to the tourney. But are the built to win it?

    All I ask is that you don't cite their winning streak in the Q as evidence that they will beat the two OHL teams, let alone Kelowna or Kootenay. K?

    The winning streak is of interest to those in the Q. Little significance across leagues however.

    History has shown many top-scoring powerhouses from the Q falling flat on their face once they meet the closer checking, harder hitting play of the Memorial Cup.

    If I was an Oceanic fan I'd be worried about complacency.

    Rimouski are not a sure-win for the Q championship this year, it might be presumptions to crown them even before they played one playoff game.

    London seems to be the favourite in the Memorial Cup, they are currently 66GP 59W 5L 2T 0OTL 120PTS 9W-STK and a .909 PCT

    0 overtime losses coupled with only 5 losses thus far is an accomplishment that will carry onto the Memorial Cup.

    Rimouski: 69GP 44W 17L 5T 3OTL 96PTS .674 PCT U27

    27 undefeated games for Rimouski is also an accomplishment coming into the Q playoffs.

    Lets not forget about last years Memorial Cup champions the Kelowna Rockets: 71GP 45W 12L 12T 2OTL 104 PTS .732 PCT

    Kelowna, Rimouski and London are all currently league leaders in standings and are not going to go away that easily in their respective league playoffs.

    Well Hull came friggin close to winning it last year, they dominated the **** out of Kelowna (whose best point man had 49 pts that year), but Kelowna played the most soporific and boring brand of hockey I've ever seen. A Q team has reached the finals in the past 2 years. You can't call that league weak. Go Rimouski!!

    I was thinking the same thing, Erie are underdogs in the first round and will be playing without Blunden.

    a/w congrats to Rimouski, this is some run!

    That's a little more diplomatic of you... anyone is capable of winning these - the Q champ beat both the O champs and the Dub champs last year, only to lose to a well rested ( certainly talented also ) host team.

    All people are saying is it's anyones game.

    I think it's Londons to lose as they are the most complete team - nobody else combines their scoring and defense - but upsets are quite common in the Memorial Cup and who knows what will happen when teams from different leagues with different styles come together.

    And history has also shown in the past 10 years many top-scoring powerhouses from the Q as destroyed that closer cheking, harder hitting play ot the Memorial Cup.

    If I was a Dub fan I'd be worried about the incredible offense of London and Rimouski(if they make it).

    I'm not saying that it's one of those two team that will win it, but common, hockey is more defense first now but offensive team still win the cup frequently.
