Its about the money. Teams/cities bid to host the tourney. Then they make money (or lose money) off the event. There's flights and hotels to book, volunteers to secure etc, its not logistically doable to not have a predetermined host.

People might like looking at this quick look at the history of the Oil Kings at memorial cups.

http://www.edmontonjournal.com/sport...409/story.html

A few surprises in there for people that didn't know and how much things that happened long ago made sense in retrospect.

My own biggest pain was listening to the radio coverage of the games and hearing the 71, and 72 Oil Kings beat. I went to a lot of the games in those years, particularly playoff games. The 72 Crusher against Guy Lafleur the biggest heartbreak.

The biggest ever success was the Kings beating Bobby Orr in memorial cup play.

What's up with the Memorial Cup schedule making? Oil Kings play 3 in 4 night while the Knights get 3 in 6. Corruption is running wild, brother.

Looked back at the last 10 memorial cups, and only twice did the host team play their games in less than a 6-day period. Just the perks of being the only team that didn't win a league championship.

If that team is already the winner of their leagues trophy, it'd go to the team with the 2nd most points in all the CHL. This year the team with the most points in all 3 leagues is the Kelowna Rockets with 118 points. They should get to play instead of the host team. So it'd be something like, Kelowna Rockets vs Geulph storm, Edmonton Oil Kings vs Val-D'Or Foreurs, and the winner of those 2 games will play for the Memorial Cup. I think that would be more fair. It'd also be a good incentive for a team to try and win and get as many points as they can in the regular season because that would guarantee them a spot in the Memorial Cup playoffs.
That would be the best way to go, in giving teams that most deserve to be there. However, I do understand that promotions and good ol' l'argent is important too. Most often, the host team is able to recruit alot of good players, because they can guarantee a player they will be in the Mem Cup. So, usually, they are pretty decent anyway.

...but still hung on to beat London. Hopefully T. Jarry can come up as big as Val d'Or's goalie did in their opener.

Reminder that if you can't watch the games, Corey Graham and I are doing the broadcasts from London for the Oil Kings in TSN 1260.

I'd rather be bound and waterboarded for an hour instead of having to face the next 12 years of this garbage.

Yeah, definition of weak.

Since when can you not get a guy out of your crease after a whistle?

He didn't even hit him, he hugged him.
