It would be intersting to see how many times a host has been knocked out of the playoffs early (1st or 2nd round) and the gone onto win the mem cup
There's been 2 teams that I can remember who have lost in the 2nd round and gone on to win the Mem Cup (Ottawa, Shawinigan), but I can't think of one team that has lost the first round and gone on to win.

Strangely enough, the last host team to lose in the first round was the Regina Pats in 2001....coached by Lorne Molleken.
