This WHL final was fast paced high skill amazing best final I have seen in 30 years watching this game. I am a tigers fan and this is up there with the Tigers Memorial cup runs back to back. I ask those arguing about how players responded to a loss to remember these kids are 16 - 20 years old, and remember how most of us acted when that age. these kids gave 120% out there both teams and this was bar none one of my favorite finals to watch. Lets stop worrying about Portland for now they did their best. Time to NOT put Edmonton's chances down at the Memorial Cup but support them, I personally think after watching the way they play and are coached they stand a great chance at winning this thing. No they are not my team but its WHL vs OHL vs QMJHL vs Host and WHL is my league and Oil Kings are my champs this season. So I say Lets Go Oil Kings!

You posters who whine about Portland's behavior, they are teenagers being teenagers and they just genuinely lost something giving them a bit of a right to be upset. (I have teenagers this is normal) Whats your excuse for acting just like them? Time to be a sportsman and get past it.

Great win Kings, Thanks Portland for an outstanding series and hold your head high.

I agree. An incredibly fun series to watch. I was hoping for OT in game 7 but oh well. I am so impressed with Brossoit. Go make us all proud in the MC and bring that hardware home where it belongs!
