      My guess: If the NCHC takes ASU and MSUM and then the Alaskas disappear, do WMU and Miami bolt back to the WCHA? They'd get way better travel.

      Instead, let the Alaska situation sort itself out and let ASU come up with something more than a vaporena* to play in.


      * vaporena: An arena claimed or planned but that does not exist at this time. Similar to term "vaporware" in the software realm meaning software that we're working on but don't have yet.
      Couldn't they just play where the Coyotes play, or even where the Suns play. Wouldn't that work, just fine?

          ASU will play at Gila River Arena (Coyotes) for four games this year. AEG takes over the building from the Coyotes after this season, so I'm not sure what the plans will be next season.

          For the long term solution, it seemed momentum was for the Coyotes to build their new Arena on ASUs campus. Those plans seemed to change and it sounds like Scottsdale is where the Coyotes will be. I believe ASUs focus is now on building a midsize hockey venue on campus. But nothing official has been announced, thus the skepticism around the program.

          Gila Is not a great option as it is just too big and even a decent crowd will look and feel terrible. The makeshift Oceanside facility, while there were nice improvements, is not NCAA quality. So right now, neither option is great. So hopefully the on campus venue comes to fruition soon.

            True, guy with one post.

            All 700 fans in the MacInnes would rain boos down upon the now-hated Purple Cows of Mankato State. The players would need years of psychological treatment after the sadistic tauntings of the diabolical Tech fans warped their cerebral cortex. If the Mavericks players were somehow able to make it through the game, the bus back to Mankato would just be filled with bawling, quivering young men clutching blankies and calling out for their mommies to come hold them. The bus would reek of human waste as the Mavs' brains would be so addled, they no longer even have the capacity to use the bathroom. Coach Hastings would have to completely overhaul the entire program, if not discontinue it altogether, after all the Mavs have been rendered totally useless as hockey players.

            Thank God the Mavs get to start at home. Thank God, indeed.

            We mourn for days after a loss, puff out our chests for a week or more after we win. We brave the cold for tailgates, our friends know not to ask about the game after a tough loss, we laugh, we cry, we BLEED hockey, specifically the maroon'n'gold. Many of us have a tattoo waiting in the wings, WHEN (not IF) the Gophers are champions again.

              You westerners and your sense of humor.
              It's great - keeps the summer interesting while half of you fall apart.
