It is odd that Manitoba crushed Regina so badly all season, yet the Cats have basically been .500 against Sask, Calgary, and UBC.

While upsets are plausible, all signs point to a Manitoba-Alberta final. Barring injuries, I would say that Alberta's only chance is if Mucha is stellar in goal.
I am surprised Alberta's only chance of beating Manitoba is if their goaltender is stellar. Throughout the season, they won 3 of 4 matchups, and outshot Manitoba every game, for a total of 162 shot for and 111 against, outscoring Manitoba 16-10. I would have thought that either team would be capable of winning without the need for a goaltender stealing a game. Your top 35 rankings shows Alberta #1 and Manitoba #5. Surely the #1 team has a fighting chance against #5?
