Surely we've got to try to progress, for me it would be foolish to pick a short-term gain of a single fixture with a larger crowd over the possibility of a "cup run" that would promote the club and potentially lure new sponsors, fans etc

Sporting success before commercial to me.

Sure we'd get a big crowd, but how many newbies are going to come back if we get thumped by Panthers?

Anyone has a chance against any team this year, but got to play the percentages. We've beaten Guildford already this year, they're local (so less travelling for an 'extra' fixture) and we can always have a 'big' game if we make it to the next round.

Flames need to beat Cov in a dead rubber to finish 4th seeds so Fife would be the obvious pick from the rest.

Cov beat Guildford tonight, so Flames end up 5th or 6th seeds depending on the final games Notts v Mancs next week.
Panthers currently in 6th place can leap frog Guildford and Cardiff to 4th seed if they win.

The Challenge Cup QF ties will be decided later today at the latest EIHL board meeting. For those who are interested the announcement will be shown live on the EIHL Facebook page from 1pm.

Finalised list of seeds:

1. Sheffield Steelers
2. MK Lightning
3. Belfast Giants
4. Cardiff Devils
5. Guildford Flames
6. Fife Flyers
7. Nottingham Panthers
8. Dundee Stars

Despite the result on Sunday, I canít see us picking anyone other than Guildford. I donít see how it makes sense to pick Nottingham, just to get a larger crowd, or to pick either of the Scottish teams and add extra travelling. Donít think theyíll fancy picking Cardiff too much either.

The slight fly in the ointment is that I think Sheffield will pick Guildford first.
