Otherwise those OHL teams would never have a prayer to be the host team in the Memorial Cup.
It may actually help to share the bid expense.
Copps is not feasible because of the Hamilton Bulldogs in the AHL you can't predict if they will be playing there or not. Same reason Calgary Hitmen, Edmonton Oil Kings are pretty much out of the conversation for hosting because main tenants Flames and Oilers take precedent.
