To the surprise of only a few, Regina joined Moose Jaw and Swift Current in making a number of moves (Regina guaranteed a berth, while one of the Warriors or Speedy Creek will be out in the second round). The prices paid were steep, and in Brandon's case, a team who was doing better than expected and not that far back of Speedy Creek for second in the East, Kelly (who would have given the go ahead even if he is busy in Vegas) once again fleeced his trading partners. The return for Clague was huge and pretty good for Kaspick too. If one adds to these transactions the taking to the cleaners by the Wheat Kings of Saskatoon for two years into a row (Schenn and then Ferland), it may have been better to be a seller this week. However, for the next three months though, the Jaw (or Swifty) will look real good, and be tough to beat. And while upsets can happen, it is likely the Pats will be practicing for awhile should they get knocked out in the first round, which is very realistic given the status of the East this season.

So how many years is going to take the Pats to recover after selling the farm to host the Mem Cup? 5 years....a decade? Silly in my opinion, they should have learned their lesson from the last time they hosted.
