This may well be the mother of all games for both clubs guys, especially if Calgary beats Winnipeg next week. A Winnipeg loss and Montreal will be playing for 1st place and an Eastern Final birth. IF... Winnipeg loses! The Lions too are playing for 1st place and a birth in the Western Final. The difference in what is at stake is that the Lions can get it IF they beat Montreal regardless of what Edmonton and Calgary do in their respective games so the Lions will be playing full bore regardless.
Question to Montreal fans:
If Winnipeg beats Calgary do you think Trestman will change his starting line-up and "save" some of his players knowing 1st place would be out of reach? I've always felt that in the CFL the players play their hearts out no matter what is hanging in the balance but some common sense must prevail here. Do you play your best guys and do they keep their foot on the gas and risk injury or do you give the other guys game experience and the chance to hone their skills? If they do this it would be something the Lions would welcome. What do you guys think?
