If the CIS wanted to embrace the full-but-small rink ideology, I'm fairly confident a joint UW-WLU bid could be successful in Waterloo. I'm aware of how bad things were a decade ago, but the biggest difference is that the tourney was held in Kitchener. I know the cities run into eachother, but trust me - as a student of UW or WLU, the Kitchener Aud might as well be in Windsor. If you put this thing close, the student bodies and will fill out the crowds.
The Waterloo rec complex is about 2 km from each campus, and its capacity is about 4,400 with standing room (3,400 seating capacity). The corporate money in Waterloo has also exploded since 2001, and many of the region's well-to-do companies are headed by WLU/UW grads willing to give back.
I wouldn't expect a bid and, if there was, I wouldn't expect it to win. Just food for thought.
