While Khokhlachev’s junior hockey career will likely be over once the Spitfires miss or are eliminated from the OHL playoffs, his impact on the Windsor organization will last longer than that.
“We’re going to bid on hosting the Memorial Cup next season and while 'Koko' won’t be here then, he is going to help us get into the playoffs and then do some damage there,” Boughner said.
“You can’t host the Memorial Cup if you missed the playoffs the season before.
"(He’s) going to take us where we want to go.”
Does the bolded blue mean "can't" as in there is a Mem Cup Host Committee rule that says as much or "can't" in a more "I couldn't see the Mem Cup committee possibly rewarding the gig to a non-playoff team so we better get in there"?
Also if it's play-offs or bust as Boughner is implying - why trade your OA captain away for a draft pick?
