Here are roster numbers for every team for the last 4 years (including goalies)...although the data isn't complete for all teams this season.

http://www.eliteprospects.com/teamse...p?LeagueID=127

I don't hear anyone complaining about Carleton having 28 and 30 players the last two years, or Laurier having 30 and 31, or Concordia having 30, 32, 34, 32 the last 4 years, or Nipissing having 28, 30, 33 the last three. Or even Dalhousie, who has used exactly one fewer skater than UNB the last 3 years (28, 27, 26 vs. 29, 27, 26).

Even if you assume every team carried 3 goalies there were 28 (out of 35) teams that used more than 21 skaters last season (or more than 24 total players).

I think a limit of even 22 skaters would be reasonable....giving each team 4 scratches.

Plain and simply, if UNB wasn't as good as they have been no one would care how many guys they use and this wouldn't even be an issue.
