Last night host Quebec Remparts got their revenge against the QMJHL champion Rimouski Oceanic. From being denied the right to hold both the host and champion title in their own arena the Remparts are now on mission to prove that they aren't just lucking into the Memorial cup (Shawinigan). The Kelowna Rockets dominated the WHL playoffs and came up relatively short in the Memorial Cup tournament. Scoreboards aside I think this has been an excellent tournament so far and any of these teams deserves the cup. Except Rimouski, since they are eliminated.
