I agree, though both MB and NO have looked inconsistent. I was wondering how they decide second if there is a 3 way tie: "And should Newfoundland/Labrador, Manitoba and Northern Ontario all finish with 8-3 records, they will be ranked based on their pre-game draw to the button cumulative distances, which won’t be finalized until shortly after tonight’s games begin. All three teams finished 1-1 in head-to-head games, which is the first tiebreaker." I've noticed Brad Gushue seems more relaxed this year - not getting uptight when things go sideways. of course, they haven't gone sideways very often this week.
