Do you agree with this article?

Sorry I never responded by, yes, the AUS has taken a shine to hockey. On the article's points:
- I can't compare the popularity of the AUS's other sports.
- They do draw better crowds than the other conferences
- I would disagree on the player base. Their teams have more money and recruit outside their home base. The Manitoba Bisons only recruit Manitoba boys, and do quite well. That would never work, however, for UPEI. UNB's tentacles stretch across the country.
