One thing to remember about Memphis, they beat the Bats last year without Gagnon or Pahlahnuk. In that sense, they are better than last year.
Also, what I said about Game 1? There have been 47 best-of-seven match-ups in combined CHL/WPHL history. The Game 1 winner has taken the whole thing 39 times (82.9%).

Only fitting that the two best teams in each respective conference made it to the final. Memphis is such an explosive club, Austin must play a very patient game to win this series (stay out of the box Bats). The X factor is that Memphis knows what it takes to win while Austin has the payback in mind. The key to the whole series is the defensive corps for Austin -- they will have to be physical from the get go, keeping the skill of Memphis to the outside. Would love to see ex-mate Dougy and Reeser win one. Austin in seven, 36 goals and Seguin MVP.
