16 teams enter. Only 1 is crowned the Champion. This year was an exciting turn of events, with the Crozac Cardinals and Ashtown Horsemen making their first playoff appearance in league history. Let's take a look at the team chances, as well as the insights from our ten analysts on who will be crowned the champion this year.

Team Insight

  • 16px-AHALogo.png Airdrie High Angels: If they can beat Team X in the first round, they have a shot at winning it all, especially with Airdrie being fully healthy for the playoffs.
  • 16px-Knightslogo.png Kimberly Knights: Kimberly is a strong defensive team. However, their offense will have to kick it into gear. Against their first opponent, the Scarlet Saviors, they may have a chance, but the next round, no matter what team, will test every aspect completely.
  • 16px-Sslogo.png Scarlet Saviors: They have a better chance, especially with the outstanding performance of Drew Gaudron, that Scarlet can advance. Scarlet's scoring isn't much higher than Kimberly, but in the last 10 games, Scarlet has done exceptionally well. They could make it to the North final if they push.
  • 16px-TeamXLogo.png Team X: Team X has the most playoff experience of any team. As long as they do what they do, they will win the cup again. Their hardest opponent may be the Black Blades if they make it that far, and Airdrie High Angels will be tough for them to beat, especially in the playoffs.
  • 16px-Bladelogo.png Black Blades: This team has everything they need. They scored the most goals, allowed the fewest, and have 4-5 of the best lines currently in the league. This may be the year that Black does it, and if not, their decline will show.
  • 16px-Bnlogo.png Branton Nickels: Branton has the ability to do it all again, but everyone will have to stay healthy in order to succeed. This team has been plagued with injuries all year that almost cost them a playoff position early on.
  • 16px-Bucklogo.png Brown Buccaneers: Brown will have to amp all of their statistics to shine through, even if it just to face against the Black Blades. Their defense slipped in the last 15 games of the season, giving them a negative differential. In order to beat Black, they will need to score early.
  • 16px-Korenlogo.png Koren Killers: This team has the smallest chance to make it out of their division, but a good shot to beat the Branton Nickels. Henrik Turok will have to be red hot in order to ensure victory against the high-scoring Nickels.
  • 16px-Ahlogo.png Ashtown Horsemen: Ashtown is hot at the right time. They can score as well as their divisional opponents with the exception of Yellow, so you can expect them to have a nice stretch.
  • 16px-Mflogo.png Mountain Flyers: Mountain is a hit-miss team. They can go far if they keep scoring a lot of goals, but their defence has fallen drastically this season. They will need to play better defensively in order to win.
  • 16px-Wwlogo.png White Warlocks: This team just slipped into the playoffs with a lucky OT win over Ultimate. White will have to strategize repeatedly in order to win, especially since they face the high offense Yellow Flash first off.
  • 16px-Yflogo.png Yellow Flash: The Flash have a high chance of winning it all, but they will need more depth to add the chance. Their goaltending is stellar, and far better than it has before, and that just may be the winner.
  • 16px-Bblogo.png Benton Bruisers: Benton has everything they need to win - scoring, defence, goaltending. The thing they need is a little bit of luck and variety. Their strategies won't work against every team and they will have to adjust the weight of each in order to win.
  • 16px-Cclogo.png Citadel Centurions: Citadel is a threat. To each and every team in the league. Their only weakness is their defence. However, Citadel counters this by scoring a lot of goals each game. With the teams they are facing, they will need to continue their offensive plans in order to win. If their offense slips, they too will face elimination. As for the chances, Citadel has a huge shot at taking the cup this year.
  • 16px-Carlogo.png Crozac Cardinals: Crozac has done very well in all aspects. They will need the speed they had all season to ensure good goalscoring and defence to win it all.
  • 16px-Ghlogo.png Green Hornets: Green will need to be faster than their opponent to win, and Benton Bruisers aren't easy to beat. Their defence has slipped slightly which has caused them to have several single goal losses.
