Memorial Cup Host Wins League
 
Quick question. What happens if the Host of the Memorial Cup wins their respective league? i.e. Saskatoon this year? Who takes the extra slot?

Team that loses in the final.

I really hope the NHL Network here in the States carries this tournament live this year like they used to. The past two years they showed practically the whole thing on a tape delay, each game condensed into 2 hours the following day. Clueless:shakehead

If Saskatoon or any host team makes it to their league final, their opponent for the league final automatically has the league berth into the Memorial Cup. I believe that if the host wins their league championship they have a choice as to be in the 'League Champion' slot, or the 'host team' slot for the tourney Schedule.

That makes a lot of sense. I'm sure the people who bought ticks to watch Stoon, would be fairly upset if the current schedule changed.
