    Like I said, I wanted to drop them but it's hard when Sask lost by 25 to Calgary the week before in the same conditions. If Manitoba had a shade more consistency I would have put them at #4 as their...

    Certainly a valid argument for Regina, they did finish the season on a much better run than Alberta did especially with them having played each other in week 7 and Regina getting a 14-point win.

    I think Mac is here a year ahead of schedule, and it's showing right now. Calgary has a talent advantage and those players (the Philpotts, Sinagra, the defensive line) are taking over.

    I agree about Calgary's defense, they push the envelope constantly on late hits, especially on Dueck. Just cause they're getting called for some doesn't mean they're getting called enough.
