    i was giving the ralph the benefit of the doubt. it may not be equal to haa, but i've never seen it so i didn't want to come across and knowing. perhaps you've been in the basement at both barns and know for sure

      it doesn't need the benefit of the doubt. i don't need to see it in person either. unless you've had your head buried in the sand, you would have heard plenty of people who have seen both call it the best facility in college hockey. i'm just going off what people in the game have said on record.

        Yes, but their location is a big drawback. Getting a kid to commit to living in Grand Forks for four years is a lot harder than getting a kid to commit to live in Boston. Plus, with UND you have multiple overnight bus rides every year where in Hockey East 50% of the trips aren't long enough to finish a Coke. UND buses to Omaha and Houghton...not exactly a major selling point.

        Of course their facilities and fanbase are superior to everyone's in the world practically, so it's a give and take. But the location definitely is a drawback to the UND job in comparison to the likes of MN, BU, and BC. It's hard to rank these things, BU is absolutely a top 10 job, beyond that, who knows. Don't forget we haven't hired anyone in four decades, so it's not terribly easy to gauge the desirability of the job.

          I wouldn't exactly call your end of Comme ave a draw in terms of location, unless of course you have a thing for concrete campuses, smog, filth, noise, homeless people, crime and rats the size of dogs.

            Millions of people flock to live in cites, so it does have an appeal.

            Mookie has told his story many times... After penn didn't accept him early admission he sent apps to bu and bc. When regular penn admission rejected him too he had to pick between bu and bc. He got out a map and saw were each was located and picked bu sight unseen on location only.

            And the only reason he picked Boston - bu and bc was Larry bird.

                  Bonanza, as I said...it's a great job. Def top ten, I just don't see it as top three. In theory you're right about recruiting but und always has top classes just like bu. So if grand forks isn't attractive, that's where the rink, tradition and putting kids into the pros comes into play.

                  Hoky, nobody said the team with the best facility always wins. If agganis is so great how did bu not even make tourney? See, dumb argument.

                        It was starting to look like Union, Cansius and Yale was the road top the final still Union, Quinnipiac, Yale not much more formidable.
