Hey guys. Knights fan here, following the race for the last playoff spot. Obviously cause I want to know who we'll play in the first round, but I think Windsor really needs this to stay in contention of a Memorial Cup bid.

After what's been happening in Saskatoon, I don't see the committee giving a non-playoff team the Cup. Sure, they'll be better next year, but it's still a risk. Actually, I feel almost certain that they won't give it to Windsor if they don't make the playoffs. That may have been a big part of the reason they didn't trade off KoKo and got Aleardi - they needed the playoffs.

That said, Windsor could turn this race around in a hurry if they take both of those upcoming games against Saginaw.

Last 15 games for you guys:

Plymouth X4
Saginaw X2
London X2
Erie X2
Niagara X1
Kingston X1
Sarnia X1

And Saginaw's schedule:

Kitchener X3
Plymouth X3
London X2
Windsor X2
Sarnia X2
Guelph X1
Oshawa X1

Both look pretty even, I'd say Saginaw has the slightly tougher final 15. Then again, they have been beating teams they have no business beating (5-3 over Barrie last night).

It'll all depend on the Sag-Wsr home and home.

Should be interesting going down the stretch.
