Will be sitting about 10 rows behind the west end net for the tournament.  Was really looking forward to this one but that is a lot of games so may have to pick some out to miss???  Blades have not been overly good this season and may show the error of host team auto birth??

don't miss the OHL games! If Barrie prevails, watching Mark Scheifele (Winnipeg's property) is worth the price of admission on his own; also great to see Andreas Athanasiou (Detroit prospect) and if he's not suspended again, Boston's future Anthony Camara. If London ends up taking it, Griffith and Rupert are hella fun to watch too.

That's the problem.  All the young stars may make it this year so will want to see them all.  Just not sure I want to go every night for 10 straight???

Camara's done for the remainder of the OHL Championship series for a dirty blindside hit.  Barrie would have to petition for him to be reinstated for the Memorial Cup.

Add on the list for the Knights that Domi's kid (2nd in OHL playoff scoring).  He's got warts in his game, but I think he has the potential to be a top line player AND he might be on the board when the Leafs draft.

Mark Scheifele has been unreal in the finals.  14 points in 5 games.

Branch did Barrie a favour suspending Camara for the duration. He singlehandedly blows opportunities to tie/win games with the selfish kinda bs he pulled the other night. Colts fans are happy to see him done too :)

Scheif has been unreal all season long. He's had more multiple point games than I can remember. Truly outstanding. Part of me doesn't understand why Winnipeg sent him back down in the first place, but the Colts are the better for it :)

Max Domi I cannot effing stand. Like father, like son I guess. Both are dumb as rocks. If the Leafs draft him, there will not be a DomiBear. Ever. No effing way. (just like there was never a dadDomibear either).

god I'm having a coronary watching this game 6 between Barrie and London. First two periods, Knights owned, built up a four goal lead……..and the Colts managed to come back in the third (without the suspended doofus Camara, and the victimised-by-a-dirty-check-that-went-unpunished Scheifele) and tied it with like 25 seconds to go. I hope they win this quickly in OT. effin' Knights…...

5-4 Knights win in OT.  Wow that was brutal.  Blowing a 4-0 3rd period lead including 3 goals in the final 5 minutes and one goal with 40 seconds left.

Ryan Rupert (Leafs 6th round draft pick) scored his second of the game and 11th of the postseason early in OT to win it. 

On to Game 7 on Monday.

No guarantee that there will be one on the 23rd either. Tie-breaker is only needed if there is a tie for 3rd place. You've got 8 games for sure.

Knights won the OHL Championship literally in the final second of the 3rd period.

Second straight appearance in the Memorial Cup, and thanks to a winning bid, they will be hosting the Memorial Cup in 2014.  Three straight appearances.  At least something is going right in terms of fandomship.

maybe for you. I feel the Colts got raped by the OHL and the officials yet again. Their possible winning goal was disallowed. And then, after being waived off by the on ice referee, the off ice officials gave the Knights that goal. Congrats to you, but London will have the OHL in their back pocket until Branch isn't running it anymore. And Barrie and Windsor were wasting their time and money even making bids for the Memorial Cup. It won't be going to Barrie, ever. Branch hates Barrie. It was gonna be London as soon as London said they were going to be bidding.

LittleHockeyFan did you want me to get either of the Domi's to autograph a bear for you this week??  JK'ing!!!  Lots of buzz here for the Cup and it all starts tonight.  Looking forward to seeing if the Blades can elevate their game as I highly doubt they can prove they belong.  Although they do have a world class goalie when he chooses to compete??

Tonight's Memorial Cup Final 7pm ET (Sportsnet)

Halifax Mooseheads vs Portland Winterhawks

Dubbed the "Nathan & Seth show", this Memorial Cup Final promises to be more than just the top 1 & 2 draft prospects in Nathan McKinnon and Seth Jones, respectively.

Halifax, led by McKinnon, Jonathan Drouin (#3 prospect), Martin Frk and goaltender Zach Fucale, will need to be at the top of it's game against a very well-solidified Portland team led by Jones, Nic Petan, Ty Rattie and goaltender Mike Carruth.

Should make for an interesting final.
