- Two less wins than Portland in 6 less games

Also, why does the WHL get to play more games in a season? OHL and QMJHL play 68, WHL plays 72... I'm not accepting that they have more teams as a reason, as the OHL has more teams than the Q, yet they play the same amount.
Everyone thinks they're a joke, which is why I wonder why so many Moose fans make a big deal of why we're not #1 lol .... That being said, Portland lost for the first time in awhile last night, so you have to think we would regain the #1 position ... But then again, they're a joke so who cares.

This.

They hold no bearing on anything... just bragging rights for the fans.

Edit: They are #1.

That was quick! When I made my post, the newsfeed on the CHL website had the "BMO ULTIMATE CHL FANS SCORE TRIP TO MASTERCARD MEMORIAL CUP" as the headline, and it's now the 4th slide.

Perhaps someone from the site saw my post and decided to update it?

Halifax and Portland both have such incredible teams this season that losing just a single game gets you knocked out of first place.
Wow. It's not often that teams are actually expected to win every night.

Out shot 50-39? Yikes.

I'll chalk that up to road fatigue and the 3 in 3. A win is a win, makes it 10 in a row.

Wow! Talk about a dirty, deliberate knee on knee hit... and he only got 2 minutes for it? The officiating in this league need to figure this stuff out. These hits have no place in the game of hockey.

It definitely could have been much worse for Drouin, but luckily he escaped serious injury.

Having no Trey Lewis must have hurt as well. I was worried about our depth on D after the trade deadline and I think my worries were well founded.

As much as I love this team, and as much as I do believe we have great chance at the QMJHL title, I just can't see this team winning the Memorial Cup.
Yes, it's a very short tournament so anything can happen, but the defense that teams like Portland and London have are just on a whole other level. Portland especially. Aside from Seth Jones they've also got Derrick Pouliot, the 8th overall pick last year, Troy Rutkowski, their captain and former 5th round pick averaging around a PPG, and Tyler Wotherspoon, a 2nd round pick who made Team Canada for the WJC. London's no slouch with guys like Olli Maatta and Scott Harrington.
We just don't come anywhere close to matching those teams on defense.

The thing is that a GM needs to build his team to win the league they play in. You can't worry about the Memorial Cup because it's such a crap shoot.

Even with the questions on defense, I still think we are the team to beat for the QMJHL title. You then take your chances in the Memorial Cup.

IMO London is overrated.

We're definitely the team to beat in the Q. Just can't see playing seven games against anyone else and losing four times.
Still, if you're going to build a championship team in any league, you have to be careful leaving depth on D so bare. With Lovell out we really can't afford to lose anyone else in the playoffs.
Not trying to be pessimistic, just cautious. He could probably do it, but I don't want to rely on Fucale to bail us out all through the playoffs.

Stolen from Reesor, here's our injury situation ...

MacKinnon - Starts skating tomorrow but won't be playing this week.

Lewis - Over his concussion, but has to get back into game shape. Should be back at some point this week.

Falkenham - Doubtful for this week, but is close.

Lovell - A month away probably ... Round 2 at the earliest maybe?

Falkenham and Nate seems like a week or more away, so don't rush them, there's no need ... Lewis is ready to skate again but I'd rather have him 110% than sluggish throughout the post-season ...

Drouin may also be day-to-day.

No, but it's not like our D is terrible or way behind theirs ... We lead the Q in GA, and are right up their with London.

Maybe we have the offense that London and Portland can't come close to matching? We do average a full goal more than London, and 0.6 more goals than Portland per game ... Portland have a very good top line and top 4 D, but the thing with Halifax is no one can match our bottom-6 ... Having MacAulay, Fournier and Andrews in the "bottom two" lines is something no team in the country can match.

Our top line might be the best in the CHL too, and having 3 lines with a 30 goal-scorer on each is nice ...

Moose lose 8-7 in overtime.

Didn't watch the game, but did the defense take a dump tonight or could Clarke not stop a beach ball?

Going to the next couple upcoming home games should be fun. Any word on Drouin's status, he's got a scoring title to win!

For the Moose brass, in the grand scheme of things, a scoring title is totally irrelevant to the team goals on the long run.

Drouin will be sidelined for as long as needed and will get ready for the playoffs.

Well Clarkey only had 22 shots on him. Apparently he just **** the bed.

I think Drouin will be back in against Moncton from what I've heard. Maybe Nate too but that's pushing it probably.

But why rush him though?

My guess is that you will see MacKinnon back before Drouin.
