But they really have no top teams in the oua east to compete against. Western looks good in the west. Lakehead is always a top team. Unfortunately they have taken a few steps back this year so I can't see them making any waves.
The number of teams argument is kind of accurate and kind of not. The west also has the ACAC (8 teams) and BCIHL (7 teams). The MCAC tried to get a league going but it looks like they won't, for now anyhow. So the 7 CW teams are at the top of a 22 team pyramid.
