I'm not saying Sask. Valley was a bad team at all. In fact without Draude in the final game all of the rest of the players stepped it up. But there talent was spread through a few very good players. N.E. talent was spread a little more evenly throughout the team, and a team like that is hard to beat in long run. You are right nosoup they "nearly did" succeed, but they didn't, and I don't think having draude in the lineup would have made much of a difference. Some of the players that were called upon to step up wouldn't have been given the chance. Needing one player in the line-up to win does not make a good team. A good team steps up and pulls together as a team. Did N.E. not play the league final without their top D man? Yet they pulled together as a team and held Prairie Storm to 1 goal. That is the sign of a winning team.

All in all though it was a great year of hockey. Congrats SBAAHL players, coaches, parents, and fans.
