The Memorial Cup has been fun to watch this week. Took yesterday off — which means that I stayed home and watched the first two periods 😉
The most striking things about this tournament are the strength of the goalies and the size of the players.
On goalies — Bernier of Maineiacs has been “other worldly”, but Sexsmith, Keetley, and Neuvirth have all been very good.
On size — it has been interesting that their are some huge guys (Whalers-Sestito is enormous, Maineiacs Denny is a tank, Giants Lucic is a “train”), but it is likely to be the Tiger’s mighty-mite speed & skill guys ( Russell, Bosch, & Ennis ) that are gonna take the cup.
