        My bad - I didn't look at who the post was from!

          I asked GR on Twitter after the game on Saturday. There was a little confusion but he just responded again. Ultimately, he said he always evaluates in the summer but will probably be back.

          I still haven't heard anything about Baun officially. Hoping he comes back.

            Other teams have multiple players leaving every year yet they still persevere; Colgate is fortunate to have ONE, but the impact it has and replacing him will be much harder for the Raiders. I was surprised when Wagner left so early and wondered if he was dissatisfied with 'Gate.

            Article on today's front page says Colgate should be back next year. Hopefully we'll be under the radar; we always seem to do better from there.

              It's not only Baun we could lose. We have to replace Corcoran, Gentzler, Lidgett, Wilson, Herrington and Spiro - a daunting task. Unless we have recruited a super class coming in, it is going to be difficult seeing us as favorites next year. Having been picked #1 this year, not sure we want to go there anyhow

              Shabby, how was the attendance in LP? Do you think having a consy game would have helped keep some of the SLU and QU fans around for the championship game? Have you posted a report about your experiences in LP? Looking forward to your reflections on the weekend.

                I hear you, ColSkate...but those players are Seniors and their departure was anticipated. Baun is a Junior and was not expected to leave.

                Last year, Colgate was "young" and overachieved. Next year, the Spinks need to shine. They've had impressive stats but this year was a bit underwhelming IMO, in large part due to Spink's injury. As seniors, I hope they can be a true, dynamic duo. Perhaps the rest of our team is young as well, but we have some good playoff experience under our belt and have shown that being young does not count you out. SLU was young and went far this season as well. Obviously, Hayton helped with that.

                Friday's attendance was 5,025; Saturday was 4,940, only a 75 person difference! At 7,700 capacity, it was filled about 65%, not bad, not bad at all...and that is without SLU in the title game. I don't know that the consy game would have made much of a difference. It appeared on tv that there were more Harvard fans in attendance on Saturday than on Friday, which is understandable.

                Last year with Union, Quinnipiac, Cornell and Colgate, attendance was only 4,337...and that is with 3 New York teams. Saturday's attendance with a Union/Colgate final had even more...4,850! Both schools had a great presence for being a small size. Again, no consy game.

                In Atlantic City (2013), the semifinals included Quinnipiac, Yale, Brown and Union, with the latter two in the final (boy, I had forgotten the Bears made it that far, and now look at them)

                2013 2014 2015
                3145 4337 5025 (semifinals)
                4017 4850 4940 (finals)

                Lake Placid seems to be successful if you ask me, and the atmosphere alone is priceless.

                  100% agree with everything stated above. I was actually surprised to see 5,025 for the SLU/Colgate game as I thought it looked like even more than that to be honest. Plus, I know that the opposing teams and coaches are usually in the stands and they fill some seats without being counted in the attendance figures. Take that as you will ... Also, if Clarkson and SLU ever make it on the same year then we could be looking at sell outs (potentially) or close to it. I think it's been a great success since it moved back to Lake Placid and it will hopefully continue to be more successful year after year!

                    Saturday, March 20, 1999 at 1980 Olympic Arena (Lake Placid, NY)
                    Attendance: 8,469
                    Semi final attendance was 6,679 for CCT-Prin and 8000 for RPI-SLU according to the USCHO Box Scores.

                    Other 3 teams were RPI with Princeton and Colgate in the Thursday play-in game that weekend.
                    And there was a 3rd place game at time between Princeton and RPI.
                    That was the year that Clarkson blew 4-0 and 5-3 leads to Princeton in the semi-final. Princeton ties the game with 43 sec to go. Then Willie Mitchell had his famous slap shot from center ice go over the glove of the Princeton goalie and into the net with 3 sec to go in the game to win it.

                      I remember these games very well and what a weekend that was! ... With the exception of my Saints losing to their archrival in the championship game. That was not exactly my idea a good way to close out a good weekend of hockey!

                        Nothing yet on Baun at 1:30, holding my breath.
                        It all starts with the goaltending.

                          I remember Willie Mitchell. Not a (non-Clarkson) fan favorite.

                              Every article I've read says capacity is 7,700; perhaps that is seating room only. Can't imagine the ECAC turning aside fans with extra green in their hands.

                                7,700 is the seating capacity but it can hold quite a few more in standing room attendees.
