He might have just had a bad game, but he's been unstoppable in the last 20-25 games.See his rise to 3rd in OHL scoring.

True, but at the same time...

Say London beats OS in 7 games in the finals. Then go on to beat Missisauga in 4 straight in the OHL finals.

How is what Missisauga did better than what OS did? To me, the two teams that the Knights beat last should face off in a best of 5 playoff or something like that to determine the team that should advance. If you utterly trounce the East champion, why are they the more deserving member to go on. They may have one more win, but it doesn't make them the superior team.

Agreed. But, unfortunately, this is the system they've employed.

This is what they should do:

When you get to the final four, rank the teams according to points. So this year, hypothetically, London would be ranked 1, Owen Sound 2, Peterborough 3, Missisauga 4th (or whoever). It's a much fairer way, particularly when something as valuable as a Memorial Cup Berth is at stake. (and would be useful in any year where there is a discrepancy between conferences regarding the top teams)

I mean, who cares if you win a conference championship. It's just a geographical expression. It's not like there is history behind it. (ie. NFC/AFC, AL/NL)

I agree, thats why I was suprised. I kept telling my friends all game he's gonna be a good NHLer one day and he's one of the best players in the league at only 17.

He showed some flashes of skill but didn't do much on the scoresheet just 1a (which isn't that bad against London).

A shoulder injury I believe, and I hear he was only out for this past weekend and should be back in the lineup soon.

The Attack will be in tough on the 29th, that's for sure. Fritsche and Dennis are nice acquisitions for the Knights.

Just a minor shoulder injury, he could have played, but sat as a precaution.
