    EDIT: FYI, the Minneapolis campus is primarily on the east bank as well.
    This is the internet. So change the numbers if you don't like them.
    East/West/North/South
    Doesn't matter and who cares?
    It's all college hockey.

      Wow.... MN and SCSU being considered "Eastern" schools. That takes some effort

          Thanks! I took the Mississippi suggestion to its fullest extent.

          If you asked me to pick a dividing line, I've had gone with the Mississippi/Ohio River transitioning to the OH/PA border transitioning to Lake Erie/St. Lawrence seaway... but nobody asked me.

              Why not the Hudson River? Then I could ignore Union.

                The whole thing is an embarrassment. We all are ardent (read tiger Dads) supporters for our teams and conferences.
                What we should look for is the best teams make the tournament.
                Anything less is selfish.

                  The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

                      Nice to see the conversation has devolved to the "mine is bigger than yours" stage.

                          Not if you discount the parts that are actually west of the Mississippi

                            My apologies. It was my comment about the eastern power that led to all this.

                            All I meant to say was that there are more eastern teams rated higher in the PWR than there have been ever in the last 10 years, since i have been watching it, and I find that interesting.

                              Sorry, but you get the entire state of New York.

                              However, I have to amend my recently proposed line to account for exhibition teams from Canada. The East gets Quebec and everything to the east. The West gets Ontario (yes, including Ottawa).
