EAST:

CENTRAL:
#3 Western Ontario
#7 Manitoba
#9 Carleton
#15 St. F-X

Now, I doubt that the conference playoffs would all go according to rankings. But these pools would give each conference a good shot at the final four.
Looks good...but I would flip Alberta and Saskatchewan. The way you have it right now it seems Alberta is in the toughest pool and Sask. is in the easiest. Alberta, by being #1, should be in the easier pool IMO. Sask., by being #6, shouldn't be the top ranked team in their pool.

Ideally, I would like to see that top 4 seeds be the 4 conference champions (OUA east, OUA West, AUS, CW) and have them all in different pools.
