2008 Memorial Cup to be hosted in... (plus: Ice Dogs movement....finally?)

The Kitchener Rangers have been awarded as host team for the 2008 Memorial Cup. I'm a little surprised Oshawa didn't get it, with a chance to fully showcase the incomparable John Tavares to the rest of the hockey world - who really knows how that bidding process goes.... Congrats to Kitchener - the Kitchener/Waterloo area is growing and a fun place to hang out - best of luck to the Rangers next season.

In the seemingly never-ending saga of the future home of the Mississauga Ice Dogs franchise, it finally looks as though they'll be moving down the QEW to St. Catharines for next season (although the arena is apparently not up-to-snuff).
