Congratulations Golden Bears

Yesterday the number one seeded University of Alberta Golden Bears won the 2005 Canadian Interuniversity Sport Championship defeating the fifth seed University of Saskatchewan Huskies 4-3 in overtime, in front of more than 10,000 fans in Edmonton's Rexall Place. This is a record eleventh title for the University of Alberta and their third title in the last seven years.

To get to the finals, Alberta defeated Manitoba and Quebec-Trois Rivieres in early playoff contests. Saskatchewan defeated Western Ontario and Moncton to reach the finals.

This is good hockey, but its no substitute for the elite players in the world playing against each other in meaningful competition. How long until we get that again?
