i would like to add to your thoughts on the Bisons exhibition record. i think it would be safe to say that the Bisons faced A-level competition in Europe (in fact the Graz team was an A+ team) and came out of that with a 3-2 record and a tournament championship.
I am not sure of the calibre of the Italian teams. Graz was a very good team, though. They have done OK against some teams that played NHL teams this year.

Anyhow, for ranking purposes I don't give a lot of weight to games against non-CIS teams simply because there is no basis of comparison as between other CIS teams. If every CIS team played European or NCAA teams then that would change. The weight I give to pre-season games against CIS teams will also diminish. However, the inter-conference games are used as a gauge as to where the conferences fit against one another. One such result is UPEI's two wins over McGill.
