Yes - Dave Adolph hinted to that in an interview at the end of the tournament. That each pool would advance two teams to the Semi-finals. This also resulted in the tournament starting earlier (Tuesday), the logic being most teams miss the week anyways.

I also think the CIS is trying to avoid the chance of that crazy shoot-out tie breaker and 'you lose, but still advance' or 'you win, but someone else advances'.

Upside for host - you could possible get 4 games
Downside for host - you don't advance at all and you have higher expenses
