This is awesome - thanks for posting. I started following (then) OUAA hockey in 1982/83 and looking at the standings brought that season back. During that era, U of T were an absolute powerhouse. If you look at the standings that year, you'll see that their record was 22-1-1 - in all my years watching CIS hockey, I don't think I've ever seen one team that much better than everyone else (look at their goals for - they AVERAGED 9.5 goals per game!). But they had an achilles heal. Their one tie and one loss that season were both against Laurier, the only two games they played against each other during the regular season. They both advanced to the Queen's Cup and Laurier took out U of T 2 games to none, for their first ever conference title. This was one of the best examples I've seen of there clearly being an elite team, but that one team had figured them out.
