At the start of the season, there was a scheduling issue with a few teams in order get the season kick off on time without having to change the entire schedule teams were move to between east and west the Charlottetown Islanders and Chicoutimi Sagueneens were the 2 teams most affected by the schedule. Once the change was made the season was played out. Now that we have the 4 division and 2 conferences the brackets were made up of QMJ West and QMJ Maritimes as one conference and the other conference is made up of QMJ East and QMJ Central giving us are 2 conferences. So moving to next season all teams will be placed in the correct divisions. All scheduling issue should also be corrected for the start of season 11 So Round 1 will be 1 vs 8, 2 vs 7, and so on. Round 2 will be highest seeded team remaining vs lowest seeded team remaining, and the two other teams will match up. So Rounds 1 and 2 stay within the conference. Round 3 gets out of the conferences with just four teams remaining. The four remaining teams are reseeded by the overall standings, and 1 vs 4 and 2 vs 3.
