Just checked the U of S roster. Out of 28 players listed, other than the third-emergency goalie, only two of them (Matt Spafford, Jesse Ross) do not have major junior experience. That means 25 U of S Huskies have major junior experience. As it is with top Canada West teams like the Alberta Golden Bears, Manitoba Bisons and Calgary Dinos (and even the UBC Thunderbirds have some impressive former major junior grads), most of these guys are not former WHL fourth-line plugs. The Hockey Dogs have a bunch of former 30-goal and 20-goal scorers from the DUB, not just one or two. Most of these guys were top 6 F or top 4 D on their respective WHL teams and many of them were obviously good enough to be chosen as one of their team's three overagers.
If you really think that major junior teams would win over CIS teams like that (and I don't think they'd have much luck against the Regina Cougars or Lethbridge Pronghorns either), you are simply out of touch with hockey reality.
The only way this could happen is if a goalie did cartwheels and stood on his head.
AUS and Canada West teams, along with maybe the top half of OUA squads, would eat their lunch.
Historically, can you tell me of one major team which has actually defeated a CIS team in the past decade or so?
