Is that a "C" on his jersey? It's not really clear, can someone confirm?

Have a city be the host, and have the two teams in the finals of that region be the memorial cup representatives. They wouldn't do it because it wouldn't make them as much money but that is a better and fair format.

The Mem Cup costs too much $$$$ not to have the host team participate. Teams spend the money to have their team in the tournament, not for the fun of spending to see other teams take part in the tournament.

Definitely a sketchy site. I don't even see it on the trusted sources list.
And if you look at the pixels in that photo, you can see some smudging around the "C".

Shopped and FAKE!

Are you going to pay to offset the losses if the host isn't one of those two teams? If the host team isn't there then ticket sales take a huge hit.
