It has never made sense to me that you go through three rounds of best-of-three's to get to the final, and then it comes down to a one-game sudden death for the championship.
Also, way too many teams make the OUA playoffs! Like, 16 out of 19? C'mon, really? How about six teams qualifying from each division with the top two getting a first-round bye? You could do cross-overs after that.
In no sport at this level should a team have a better than 80 per cent chance of making the playoffs before the season even starts.
That's a joke.
Check out how many b'ball and volleyball teams make the playoffs in the Canada West, for example.
