As I mentioned before that is nothing but the extra gravy for a season well played for our provincial champ. Nothing more than exposure and experience.
Disagree with the point about the Blades. The Blades are not facing any systemic barriers to success. They have the same ability to draw talented players as everybody else. In the SK vs. AB/BC/MB bantam scenario, the latter have much larger drawing pools, which is the systemic barrier to the SK rep winning. Totally not the same as the Blades in any way whatsoever.

It's the systemic barrier in this case that is not worth trying to overcome, because doing so would mean wrecking hockey in SK.
