Stoney Creek informed me on a direct twitter message that they are playing otherwise as you said they have been extremely quiet on social media
Elispogtog has missed the AAA registratration
It appears that Brantford is the holdup in Ontario
The Canadian Senior Chair normally issues the list of AAA teams sometime after Aug 1 but the position has been eliminated and I dont have a clue who is running things
So No Quebec or Atlantic region entries, and no BC teams.
Could all four Alberta teams get in (with West and Central qualifiers)?
Or have three Pacific (Lacombe and Alberta finalists), two West (Rosetown and Manitoba Champ), and Central (ACH champ)
Or have two Pacific (Lacombe and Alberta champ) two West (Rosetown and Manitoba Champ), and two Central (both ACH finalist).
Or have three Pacific (Lacombe and Alberta finalists), one West (Sask/Man champion), and two Central (both ACH finalist). (fairest in my book, teams playing in AAA leagues have best shot of qualifying and no free rides, except for host) Have Manitoba and Saskatchewan play a three team round robin for berth with the team winning the Manitoba game (IDC/SEPT) on the first night being crowned Manitoba champions.

Assuming that there is no Atlantic Canada I would think it would be Ontario Manitoba Saskatchewan Alberta Host and Kelowna which would save money eliminating any inter branch travel
If you want to eliminate the free rides then have Sask playoff against Manitoba and assuming the host Lacombe is one of the top two teams in Alberta then have the third place Alberta team playoff against Kelowna in the McKenzie Cup
jimc: that is a BROKEN system, right there

doc: Going back to a thread of Don Robertson & Doug Mathieson from December relating to the number of teams that were already confirmed for this series. I see how bad the optics are, I find it very difficult doing Google searches to see what teams there are.

doc: They need to get someone to amalgamate the website to be all inclusive. Some years a city or town has a team, the next year they aren't for whatever reason. Also how does a Province take guys from defeated teams and then build an all star group.

doc: It doesn't happen in Ontario, although I am surprised to see Brett Leggat's name on the boxscore last night for Stoney Creek.

enogca: Saw that too. Looks like he was playing backup goalie to Brown.

dsvein: Blatant missed call on Stony Creek´s 5th goal. Watched it 3 times and the goal scorer was a good foot offside. Surprised Lacombe Generals didn´t protest but it probably would have fallen on deaf ears. If you have it recorded, check it out. It was obvious.

doc: Entertaining game from start to finish, even if you didn't have a favorite team playing in the final. There were fouls on both sides during the game that were not called, that's always been the nature of hockey and always will.
