I have a very hard time cheering for a WHL team in the Memorial Cup and yet when the tournament begins I'm usually behind them.

Except for those damn, dirty Rockets. Was a HUGE Windsor fan in 2009.

Who are the players for Edmonton theyll lean on for success in this tourney?
Looking at the stats for the playoffs they seem to be a balanced group offensively and a D first team, like the Knights.
Pysyk Ive seen but am looking for a bit of a scouting report on the rest.
#1 line, checking line, style of play?

Good luck OilKing fans!

Edmonton has a lot of depth, that's why they beat Portland. Guys like St. Croix, Foster, Rachinski, Lazar, Pysyk, Wruck, Reinhart, Lowe, all those guys play key roles.

Wruck is injured, and at the moment jordan Peddle has been lighting it up. Maxwell is also playing good. The oil kings have a good chance to win the whole tournament.

Sea dogs have a good chance too. A solid line up with depth.

Oil kings should of walked all over shawinigan if they want a chance vs. saint John. They will have to have a much better start vs saint John and be much better defensively

I thought Edmonton was going to run over Shawinigan, looks like the host team doesn't have a bad team after all.

Saint John beats Shawinigan 4-1 and advances to semi-final. Edmonton will play Shawinigan in a tie-breaker game for a berth in the semi-finals against Saint John.

Edmonton is eliminated by Shawinigan, good run by the Oil Kings though.

Was pulling for London after Shawi beat Saint John, but as stated in another thread, they beat the 3 league champions, back to back to back. Host team or not, that's pretty damn impressive. Only the second team in history to win the Cup after playing the tie-breaker.
