The older, long-time contending men's curling rinks in Canada have been eliminated from the play-down to determine who will represent Canada at the 2014 Winter Olympics. Out of the running are the rinks skipped by
- Kevin Koe
- Russ Howard
- Jeff Stoughton
- Kevin Martin
The final will be between the rinks of Brad Jacobs (last year's Brier champion) and John Morris (who recently joined the Cotter team in BC). Both teams are much younger than the ones listed above.
At the same time, however, the women's final was between long-time champion Jennifer Jones, and perpetual contender Sherry Middaugh. Both have been around a long time, and the young contenders were all eliminated in the play-down.
