    Great move by the Ottawa teams to game their auto bids like that. I'm sure some other contenders won't be so happy that they were allowed to that, but it should be good for the event.

    Despite Alaska's proximity to Canada, they're not really culturally or socially close to us. They feel way more at home with the US mainland.

    I'm taking that to mean that there is no rule specifically prohibiting it, unlike say NCAA Div I. But that doesn't necessarily mean it'd be allowed.
