    I agree with that but their matchup fits bracket integrity. Ideally I would like them to figure this out without Providence being in Providence but I just don't see it happening.

      Swap the proposed Manchester and Providence brackets. For teams like Kato and ASU, it’s still a plane ride, and for PC, UMass, etc., it’s still a fairly short bus ride.

        Yes. Hopefully the committee does this.

          I assume the only fans that think keeping Providence there makes any sense from a hockey perspective are PU fans.

          And for the NCAA it's just a little extra cash when their stupidity leaves so much on the table every year.

                  Why would Princeton fans care?

                    But Quinnipiac should be rewarded for gagging in the ECAC quarters while the team that won the Hockey East championship gets sent "west" instead. Makes sense.

                      What, is calling it PU not PC?

                        It might be stinky lately, but I wouldn't count them out of any game. Tough D, with a capital D.

                          Certainly looks like the pairings are set in stone because they are perfectly matched but the locations may still be up in the air. From what I have seen in the past usually only the 3rd and 4th groups are interchangeable within the group if they do play with the pairings. They believe 9 through 12 are equal and 13 through 16 are too but like to keep 1 with 16 as much as possible. So for attendance they sometimes like to move within the last 2 groups only.

                              A few years ago Mankato went to Providence to play during the regular season. I don't think they felt like they got a fair shake going there. To put it very kindly.
