Memorial Cup overhaul

The Memorial Cup needs a new format.

I disagree with the host team earning an automatic entry into the tournament. It brings me back to the last Memorial Cup win for the Ottawa 67’s. Eliminated in the second round, they weren't even Ontario League champions, yet a one game final allowed them to walk away as Canadian champions.

It's wrong and any host team that wins the Memorial Cup without winning their league deserves a big asterisk beside their names.
