Raytch is prolly at least 80% favored to grab another Ontario Scotties.
That would enable 2 other teams to contest the wildcard spot at STOH.
Raytch's nighmare is falling at the Ontario scotties - not sure how that would happen but it would be more Homan going off-kilter and someone else going into hero mode.
Nightmare Pt. 2 - the play-in and a likely Top 10 canadian opponent higher hated than most of her Ontario competitors. (ie. Carey or Scheidegger, Fleury or Einarson, Flaxey, Spencer, etc.
No problem with CCA pre-slotting her into the wildcard game - if she fails to grab her card thru Ontario.
Let me preface my remarks by saying I have not talked to Rachel Homan in months.
But unless some extraordinary changes have taken place since that time, I can assure you that your suggestion this team is or will have "nightmares" about reaching and participating in the 2018 Canadian Scotties is ludicrous, at best.
To the contrary, this team has never become unduly concerned about any challengers they may face in any event. As a matter of fact they look forward and actually relish the thought of taking on the best in the world. Even as a teenager ( when she defeated Jones in the Canada Games) , they could hardly wait to step onto the ice against the former Canadian Champion.
Soo, if anybody is having "nightmares" about the upcoming Canadian Championship it's not Homan & Co., it's only You !
