What about Gunner's team as it was just announced that Pat Simmons is taking over skipping duties but that the rest of the team remains intact. Jason is skipping another team but not sure who. Interesting if in fact they do have direct entry into ROTR.

Since three quarters of the team is the same I think they do get to keep their spot to Summerside.

Does Gushue have to get a medal at Worlds to ensure a berth here?

No, he is so far ahead on points he will get a berth to Ottawa regardless. You can see the latest update to the Ottawa slots in an earlier post I did after the Brier.

It's all about the money, money, money. More teams equals more draws equals more tv revenue, more ticket sales, more food and beverage sales etc etc. And why not? I'm fine with even going to 10 teams. Remember for the men last time it was the last team that qualified from the pretrials that won the gold for Canada.

I know this is a bit older, but McEwan was not able to add any points in Aberdeen, as he finished 3rd there and that result was not better than any of his previous 8.

According to a recent facebook post from team mcewen their bronze medal win at the brier was enough points to earn a trials spot. If that's true then the only race is for the final spot between laycock and morris right?

Remember: Curling Canada fills in the qualification list in the order presented, any duplicate team is replaced by the highest unqualified one year points team but the two year spot at number 5 goes to the highest unqualified two year team. This is my interpretation of how it is stated on their website.

After the Brier it stands like this:

1 - 2015 Canada Cup - Koe
2 - 2016 Brier - Koe replaced by Gushue
3 - 2016 Canada Cup - Carruthers
4 - 2017 Brier - Gushue replaced by Jacobs
5 - CTRS two year total - McEwen
6 - CTRS one year total - Epping
7 - CTRS one year total - Laycock

One year:
1. Gushue 483.528
2. Carruthers 404.461
3. Jacobs 383.493
4. Epping 331.506
5. McEwen 312.789
6. Koe 305.355
7. Laycock 299.038
8. Morris 275.034

Two year:
1. Gushue 1011.17
2. Koe 836.515
3. Carruthers 802.305
4. McEwen 770.710
5. Jacobs 728.622
6. Epping 700.673
7. Laycock 623.050
8. Morris 491.999


Realistically only Morris has a chance of catching somebody for the one year total. McEwen really helped himself up the one year list with his third place finish in the Brier and also extended his lead over Epping on the two year list. McEwen and Morris are the only teams in the running here not already qualified for the Champions Cup. All teams are in the Players. While the non points garnering Elite 10 is going on this week-end McEwen will be in Europe at the Aberdeen spiel looking for more points. Although possible, it is very unlikely a series of results will occur where McEwen does not somehow already qualify (Epping would have to pass him on the two year list and both Laycock and Morris would have to pass him on the one year list.) Epping is probably in as well unless say Morris wins the Players and Laycock wins the Champion's cup. It is really a two horse race between Laycock and Morris for the final automatic berth to Ottawa.



It's really unfortunate that Elite 10 results don't count as Morris did so well there. Anyway rules are rules and I really pray that Morris can overtake Laycock and secure the last spot.

No it was great common sense, A skins format minus the money each end should never get points and with only 10 teams? You need some semblance of consistency when an olympic berth is on the line,

The mens field is shaping up to be super strong. Alot like the 2014 one, where 7 of 8 or all 8 entries have a fairly realistic and plausible chance (not just a fly in the dark) of winning. It should be exciting. I will be rooting hard for Gushue of course but whoever wins Canada should have a great rep.

Field is nine this time. If the non-qualifier from morris / Laycock and Menard get out of Summerside than all nine teams would have a good shot in Ottawa.

Fair enough. Maybe I'm too much of a Morris supporter to see the legitimacy behind this lol

Well almost. Despite that he has won a Brier I honestly cant imagine Menard winning the Roar, but I guess crazier things have happened.

With Morris losing the tie-breaker to get into the Player's playoff round Laycock gets the last ticket to Ottawa.

Was pulling for Morris, oh well, they can still get one next season, as it's only the last ticket for this season, wait, can't they still get points at the Champions Cup or Euronics?

ChampionsCup does not counting as CTRS this year. Even if they entered the Euro tourney it does not have a high enough SFM to make a difference.

Team Edin like never stops, they are playing like in 3 days in Europe and the week after back in Canada, do they ever take a week off, are they the only full timers on the men's tour, anyhow congrats to them on their win today, was pulling for McEwen, too bad Mike missed his last shot, teams look to be tired now as there have been a lot of misses this week.
