If this game actually meant anything, you think these guys would have made a difference. Don't know why people are all pumped about Alberta's win. Does it help their CIS Top 10? No. Was the game meant to showcase the CIS? Sadly, no. Dosen't put the debate to rest, just adds to it that last years members and 1st year locks were not in the lineup.
The discussion originated with an argument I had with a friend. The argument was that on average a CIS team would beat a major junior team. It was never that a CIS team would beat a major junior all star team. Even with the heavy hitters canada had out of the line up that was still a great line up of jr players. I think Alberta showed CIS is great hockey even without the high end skill. I also think it puts the argument to rest.
