So who ya got?

So it's Colorado vs. Bossier-Shreveport for the CHL's Ray Miron President's Cup, after the Eagles squeezed past Rapid City 1-0 in Game 7 of the Turner Conference finals Wednesday night.

Going strictly on the extremely unscientific How They Did Against The Komets scale, you've got to like Colorado's chances. The Komets were 1-2 against the Eagles and were outscored 14-9; they were 3-1 vs. Bossier-Shreveport and outscored the Mudbugs 14-11.

Irony alert: Colorado and Bossier-Shreveport are two of the teams rumored to have roving eyes. Wouldn't exactly be a proud moment for the CHL if both teams in the finals wound up departing for parts uknown.
