G Chris Carrozzi led the Majors to a 42-20-4-2 record in 2009-10

Just after noon today, the Canadian Hockey League is set to announce that the Mississauga St. Michael’s Majors will be the host team for the 2011 Memorial Cup tournament.

I don’t care if you love or hate the Montreal Canadiens and San Jose Sharks, Michael Cammalleri and Joe Pavelski are easily the two best stories in the 2010 Stanley Cup Playoffs. Both guys are everywhere. Scoring in pretty much every game they play. Scoring at will. And that’s why the NHL’s postseason is the greatest tournament in professional sports.
