Yeah, but the reports are that the Volts are all banged up. Should be an interesting game none the less.

Good news is Myers is the best player on the ice. Too bad the rest of the team fell apart around him.

All in all, Myers had an average tournament. He's capable of much better than he showed in the last couple of games, but at least this time around he didn't try to do too much himself when his team was down. Good sign that he's got some mental discipline.

Now, I don't suppose we could persuade you guys that another year in Kelowna would bring just as much progress as this one did?

10 pounds should be an easy enough thing once McKinney gets ahold of him. The Prospect Camp will be fun - now that their stable of D are mostly all signed.

Watched the 2nd half of the Rockets-Spitfires game yesterday. First time I'd seen Myers play. I also picked Benn out easily without knowing his number. He was easily the most fluid Rocket forward. I saw a bit of the Thursday tiebreak game, but not enough to form an opinion of Windsor. The final was all Windsor; they just had so much more jump in them. It was 3-1 when I started watching, and maybe Windsor had changed to more of a defensive style, but I saw no offense from Kelowna. Ineffective dump-ins, no forecheck, not a lot of cohesion trying to gain the zone, etc.

I didn't think Myers was anything special in the 30 minutes I watched. On a couple Rocket PPs, he wasn't skating that fast to retrieve the puck after Windsor clears.

From what little I've read, Windsor really came on late in the tourney, and if their play yesterday was any indication of how they played their semifinal and tie-break games, then the definitely deserved the Coupe Memorial.

Hopefully Myers spends the summer resting, eating, and lifting.
