2008 Memorial Cup

In two weeks the 2008 Memorial Cup host city will be announced/awarded - next year it is the OHL's turn to host. These five teams/cities are in the running:

London Knights
Kitchener Rangers
Saginaw Spirit
Sarnia Sting
Oshawa Generals

The winner will be announced during the week of May 7th.

(Memorial Cup is held between the winners of the OHL, QMJHL, WHL, and the host team which gets a bye into the tournament. The host city also stands to make serious money.)

Gut feeling, I'm going to say Oshawa wins it - London hosted two years ago, Kitchener might be a little small/old (even though I love it). I plead ignorance on the Saginaw/Sarnia presentations. Oshawa has a brand new arena, proximity to Toronto, and John Tavares.
