When the world’s best curling teams all play each other in a major competition, it’s anything but guaranteed that the No. 1 seeds will win the event. Sure, it happens, but it’s just as likely that a No. 2, 3 or a 6 could get hot that weekend, and knock off the top squad en route to a championship.

New season. Different Team. Same story. One year ago, the curling world was marvelling at the run that Winnipeg’s Mike McEwen was on to start his season. His team was winning practically every event it played in, and rarely lost a game along the way. And while Team McEwen is still the World Curling Tour No. 1, having won two of its first three events this season, Brad Gushue’s incredible start has got his St. John’s foursome in striking distance of the top spot.
