The balance of the CHL has shifted west as the WHL has placed 4 teams in the CHL's top ten rankings. Calgary leads the way at #2 after leapfrogging the Vancouver Giants. Joining the Hitmen, Giants and Saskatoon Blades are the Brandon Wheat Kings. Brandon sneaks in at #10 thanks to 9 wins in their past 10 games. The official release can be found here. While I'm glad to see my hometown getting some recognition, I wonder how Brandon gets in this week, while Spokane couldn't crack the top ten a few weeks ago when they were perfect in 11 games?
