Win or lose at this week's world men's curling championship, Brad Gushue feels his team's legacy is secure.

"I think we are the best team to ever play from the longevity that we've had and the success that we've had," Gushue said. "It's a hard argument for anybody else to make, so [a title here] would be icing on the cake for sure."

His team of vice Mark Nichols, second Brett Gallant and lead Geoff Walker has padded the resume nicely this season with a Trials win, a fourth national title in six years and an Olympic bronze.

Another medal could come this weekend after the team nailed down a semifinal berth with an 8-6 win over Scotland's Kyle Waddell on Friday. The first-place Canadians (10-2) secured the top seed in the evening with a 9-2 rout of Denmark's Tobias Thune.
