It is Brutal and Simple
Three teams make the playoffs - BC, PEI, and Quebec. There is much stunning about this! And it is also wonderful.
Tonight Team Canada play BC (who have NO need to win), Alberta play Ontario (who need close to a miracle to make the playoffs), and Saskatchewan play Manitoba (who will be in screw-you mode). Seems there is a vague hope that those with 5 losses (NL, Ontario) might get through. Pretty vague.
