That would be a dream come true, but unfortunately, not very likely. I remember when we hosted in 1993, we had to beat Peterborough in a best of 7 series during the season to get the chance to host. Branch has never favored the Soo, which is unfortunate. I was a young lad at the time, but we did a great job hosting in 1993, with an outdated building, but the atmosphere was incredible. Best memories was watching the Hounds hoist that Memorial Cup at center ice at the Memorial Gardens.

I hope you are right and we host.. There has been no mention here that we have any intention of bidding, but it would be awesome if we could host it again.
