So true. Otherwise, we'd go crazy...like, crazier than we already are for debating CIS hockey on a message board

Saskatchewan

So, will Saskatchewan try to roll 4 lines vs UNB?
No, TV time outs, until Saturday's games.
Or will Dave Adolf shorten the bench, to get top 6 forwards,Bortis,Bosch,Hulak,Bailey,Durrand,Bubnick more minutes?
I would think a similar plan awaits, as if they were facing the U of A?

I never go for predictions in this kind of tournament. It's just too short. You face a goaltender who's amazing one night and you're out of the whole thing.

I agree.
just like in 2003, when UNB outshot UQTR 57-23 and lost. That goaltending performance was the best i've ever seen under pressure. Alberta's Sorrachin in Moncton vs UNB at the 2008 University Cup final, is a close second.
If you get that kind of goaltending, then the competition is in trouble!

Thankfully, UNB is going in with LaCosta posting 2 shutouts in his last 3 games.

Sandwiched around a pretty weak effort...another game like game 2 vs. SMU and they will be in trouble.

Thankfully that was his only weak game this year, hes been solid, he's taking over the number #1 spot from Travis Fullarton (5th year) much like Mike Ouzas did from Reg Bourcier (5th year)

Now with tomorrow nights game Saskatchewan and UNB, if the huskies win, It will be a sure given the gate turnout will be a success for the remainder of the tourney. But what happens if the Vreds defeat the Hometown Huskies tomorrow night or for that matter a big win that would make it next to impossible for Saskatchewan to have a hope at a tie breaker to make the final. What would the remaining tournament games attendance be like, mostly the Final

It would depend a lot on how many packages are sold. I not many, then expect small crowds.

Im sticking to my guns UNB 7 Saskatchewan 2 or (6-1, 5-0)
If Saskatchewan does win 3-2 in OT it will be because their goalie stopped 45 of 47 shots minimum, and Lacosta let in 3 of 20 shots or less.

If this game was in a neutral location, Edmonton, Thunday Bay etc, I would give it a close score, I just have a feeling the large crowd will actually hurt the Huskies game rather than Help it, only cause of player nerves.

Predictions

Predictions

Thursday.
UoA 5 - Wat 0
UNB 4 - USK 2
* I don't see UNB faltering in this game; the lose to PEI in game 2 of the Semi's and game 2 to SMU in the Finals plus the added bad taste from last year's lose to UWO will push them to finish this game off early with a big first period.

Friday
SMU 3 - Wat 1
USK 3 - UQT 2

Saturday
UoA 4 - SMU 2
UNB 4 - UQT 3

UoA(2-0), SMU(1-1) & Wat (0-2)
UNB(2-0), USK(1-1) & UQT(0-2)

Sunday
UNB 3 - UoA 2 (OT)
* despite being outshot for the first time in years at nationals; UNB's LaCosta out duels Mucha for gold

UNB is accustomed to crowds of 3,500 and have been very good on the road. Then again, this is a long way from home and a much bigger crowd. Close game folks!

I'll play...(UNB fans are going to love me). I think Waterloo gets hammered in game 1 and then reverts back to their OUA-playoff selves and win game 2 despite being outshot.

Thurs:
Alberta 7 Waterloo 1
UNB 5 Saskatchewan 3

Fri:
Waterloo 3 SMU 2 (OT)
UQTR 4 Saskatchewan 2

Sat:
Alberta 4 SMU 2
UQTR 3 UNB 2

Sun
Alberta 4 UQTR 1

McGill outshot UNB in the national final if I recall.

I think the crowd thing gets overblown....all of these guys played in front of this kind of atmosphere/crowd in junior or the AHL or even NHL in LaCosta's case.

The shot difference would be +12 in UoAs favour (not 1 or 2).

Here's how I think it will unfold:

Thursday:
Alberta 6-Waterloo 1
Saskatchewan 2-UNB 1 (2OT) - The time difference will kill UNB in multiple OTs

Friday:
Waterloo 2-Saint Mary's 1 (OT)
UNB 7-UQTR 2

Saturday
Alberta 3-Saint Mary's 2
Saskatchewan 5-UQTR 4

Sunday
Saskatchewan 3-Alberta 2 (2OT)

The large crowd shouldn't hurt the Huskies. I mean most of their players are CHL grads where a crowd of this size isn't uncommon. If anything, I figure the crowd being so large will actually jack up the Huskies. Nothing like having a full house getting loud to help a team with momentum. I suspect if the Huskies make the final, the attendance record set in 2000 will fall.

However, it looks like the lower bowl is all that is open tonight. Looking at Ticketmaster's seat viewer, there are plenty of seats available for tonight's game. Granted, it being Thursday night and quite snowy and cold, might hinder some of the walkup crowd. The other thing is the University Cup has been lost in the hype for the Memorial Cup in Saskatoon. I remember between 1998 and 2000 there was tons of publicity for it and whatnot. With the Memorial Cup being in Saskatoon (and the Blades being quite hot only 2 loses in their last 20), the casual hockey fan might be saving their money for that. I have tickets to a pair of games for the Memorial Cup as well, but we'll see how the walkup crowd does for this tournament. Oddly enough the fact Grey Cup is in Regina this fall might hinder ticket sales to the casual sports fan. With finite budgets for tickets (and the Riders almost forcing people who want Grey Cup tickets to buy season tickets), many people might not be interested in going.

There was a letter to the editor in today's StarPhoenix griping about the $5 service fee Ticketmaster charges and how the author was going to go to tonight's Huskies game and decided not to when he saw that. Apparently the difference between $30 and $35 was too much for this person. I just accept the fact that there are service fees on the price of tickets just like there is taxes. It has never stopped me from going to games, but seems it might for some. I suspect 2014 will be better attended since as far as I know it is the only major hockey event in Saskatoon next year.

I'm stuck at work, anyone have any updates? The Live Stats seem weirdly wrong, is it 1-0 Waterloo after 2? Did neither team have a shot on net in the 2nd?
