Wasn't he one of the stars in one of the elimination games against the Rangers? Somebody else might have stepped to deliver the same calibre of performance, but it's just as likely they would have been eliminated.

Other than the rather easily part, I said the same thing. With the injuries the Colts had, it is probably the Rangers who got jobbed.

Never said I had proof. I've heard things, but that's hardly proof. Maybe you can prove he wasn't? Here's one thing Spitfires fans should be pleased about - at least this happened to them in the OHL and not the NCAA. Had it happened there, the banners would have come down and we wouldn't be talking about whether or not the Spits were going to get to host the Memorial Cup, we would be talking about how they were disqualified from participating (let alone hosting) through 2014.

Now there is a whole thread dedicated to the Spits shennanigans. Maybe we can take any additional discussion on this front over there?
