Sakaris is American ? Also he's rumored to be Blainville-Bound next year.. Along with your boy Matteau lol just kidding I know your not a fan of him.
And Shawi earned it, kudos to them.
I really like Sakaris but he didn't play well in the second half of the season and in the playoffs. In my opinion he played better at the Memorial Cup but not enough in the eyes of coach Éric Veilleux. I know he wasn't in great terms with his coach this season. Nonetheless he's a better player than what we saw from him this season. He will be a great asset for Shawinigan in 2012-2013 if he stays here or he'll be great anywhere else.
Wow this is huge for them, I remember an early season convo I had with MA-Dumont(Foreurs) and he talked about how Val D'Or wasnt very old but had won the Q where a team like Shawi had and was way older.
IIRC Val'Dor has not won a MemCup, and Shawi hasn't won the Q..
Greetings from England
Really impressive tournament, with some great prospects.
Was able to download the games, and loved the action.
Would love to know more about the QMJHL, I had no idea that Anton Zloban was so deadly.
What is his game like..obviuolsy he can shoot...wow!
Really enjoyed the whole Memorial Cup...and Anton has just rocketed up amongst my favourite CHL Euros
Im happy for them . Especially as the underdog and host of the tournament. Im from Moncton and we were the favourite in 2005-2006 but lost to Quebec in the final game. The same Quebec whom we beat to capture the Presidents Cup a couple of weeks earlier.It was devastating as the host so I can only imagine winning the cup in your home rink as host!
