For a team without a first round bye minimum would have been 7 games and the maximum would have been 11.
In an AUS Season where both the Final and Semis are best of 5's such as last year.
1st round bye minimum 6 games maximum 10 games
without a bye minimum 8 games maximum 13 games
With that said I see no big deal in the OUA to have a best of 3 Final, with the minimum games being 8 and the Maximum 12.
I don't like the fact that Q teams cannot host a Queen's Cup Game. I know it wont happen but the OUA should be devised up with one conference being the OUA and the other being maybe an Eastern conference or Quebec-Ontario Conference involving the Quebec Schools and close to the border schools like Ottawa etc, Entirely Separate Leagues, no more cross conference play
The Quebec-Ontario conference is kind of what the RSEQ does in womens hockey - a league of Quebec teams, plus the two Ottawa schools. I just dont see RSEQ having any interest in Men's hockey, nor would the OUA want to lose the Quebec schools - specifically McGill, the first ever winner of the Queen's Cup.
I really think the one-game format has more to do with two Uni Cup berths than with anything else. Just a guess though.
