Say your team is hosting(as the Blades are this year) And you can only pick ONE scenario for your team. Would you rather...
A - Win the Memorial Cup via backdoor berth
B - Win the league Championship but fail to advance to the Memorial Cup finals.
Personally, i would rather have "A" If the Blades win the Memorial Cup but dont fare well in playoffs, whatever. there will be the usuall "backdoor criers" But when it all comes down to it, the Memorial Cup is the ultimate prize!
For me, all i hope for this year is for the Blades to win their final game of the season!
