Most of the posters on this site are obsessed with Western Canadian based teams. Their already talking about Kelly Scott and Jennifer Jones. Almost nothing about Rachel Homan. Rachel has as good a chance as either of those teams to win next year.

Oh well. I predict Homan will win the Scotties next year.
I love a good "underdog". [/B]



Why shouldnt people talk about Jones and Scott. They are by far the two most successful Canadian womens teams of the last 6 years. Homan is definitely an up and coming talent and has a bright future, and she might even usurp Scott and Jones in a year or two, but until she does there is no reason people shouldnt talk about Jones and Scott as the frontrunners.

You have called Rachel Homan the Canadian Eve Muirhead but she has done nothing as of yet to warrant that. Eve Muirhead is several years younger than Homan, and is already a 4 time World Junior Curling Champion, European Champion, World silver medalist, and Olympian. What has Homan done to be compared to that.

I suspect if Homan had avoided that final end meltdown vs. Tracey Horgan she might have been able to torment most of the teams at the Scotts. However, still maybe not enough experience to take the duke. Teams like Nedohin, Jones, Kel Scott, etc. are chock full of experience and all brought top thirds to the event.

The only 'experienced' team Homan would have licked her lips and thrashed and tormented would have been Team Canada, Amber Holland who's team really doesn't measure up with Homan - except maybe at the skip position.

Homan would have finished 8-3 or 9-2 in this years field before facing adversity in the page.

Just a reminder that I predicted Homan would win the 2013 STOH when some people were doubting them on this site in 2012. Odds on this get better all the time. Don't let their domination of Ontario playdowns fool you that field has gotten deep lately.

I think Rachel Homan has already surpassed Eve Muirhead in terms of being the best young talent in the game. For whatever reason, the transition to the women's game has come easier to Rachel.
