OHL update

1) The OHL hosts the 2008 Memorial Cup - presentations are underway right now and it is between the following five teams as to who will host:

Kitchener Rangers
London Knights
Oshawa Generals
Saginaw Spirit
Sarnia Sting

All things being equal, London would probably easily defeat the competition, with Oshawa putting up a good fight. I wonder if the fact that London hosted in 2005 will hurt them.

Is Saginaw a real possibility? Would this sell major junior to the good people of Michigan?

2) London's Patrick Kane was named OHL rookie of the month for the second time this season, with this meager stat line for February:

GP: 9
Goals: 13
Assists: 16

Yes, that's 29 points in 9 games. He's making quite the run for the number one draft pick this June.
