    Let's say UML beats BC tonight and goes on to win HE. Didn't they say that Conference Champs get an autobid? If so, Lowell gets in. BC and UMass are locks. I don't see the NCAA taking 4 Hockey East schools. Could be wrong. Also, I don't think UML gets by BC tonight but because BU needs them not to, the chance remains that it will happen. So...not a lock in my opinion. Close to one, but not 100%.
    BC is a lock and if UML wins HE they would be in. I think you can make a case that BU deserves it over UMASS. BU finished higher in hockey east and swept UMASS. That should end the debate I would think...although UMASS is slightly higher in polls...finished higher/beat them twice. Not saying BU is a lock but they should be in.

    To be said in the same tone with which you asked "How did I not know that Kevin Shattenkirk was a Duck?" - How the heck did I not know that this happened!? (Thanks for sharing.)

    The issue is still with the other bubble teams though. Denver has a case to be made ahead of Omaha but Denver also has a losing record. Providence would be on the bubble but BU is ahead of them in the conference rankings. I don't see any of those teams being picked ahead of BU. I suppose if there is total chaos where UML wins HE, NMU wins WCHA, Canisius wins Atlantic and Colgate/SLU wins the ECAC...
    Without winning the HE autobid, PC has no case over BU. BU finished 2nd, PC 5th. They split the season series - and PC's win was BU's first game of the season and PC's 9th, so that devalues PC's win. Against the other 4 teams in the top half of HE, PC is 3-6-2 BU is 5-2. Yes, BU played like garbage for the past 3-4 weeks but results are results.

    It's also ridiculous to think a 10-13-1 team has an at-large shot over a 10-4-1 team.

    The conference tournament champion always receives the autobid in hockey.

    I think you guys are nuts. Check out the bubble teams. Having to decide between an under .500 Denver, Providence etc. BU is in and I don't think they are going west either. Committee wants to limit travel and I think BU easily slides into either Bridgeport or Albany as a 3 seed.

    ND looked very good. Would hate to see BU go out to Fargo, but would also enjoy watching BU play ND. Would be a big reality check and possibly a long game for BU.

    Oh, and Cole Caufield as scored 28 goals. Unreal, given the abbreviated schedule and familiar foes. Has BU as a team scored 28 goals this season?

    Ideal situation is either BC or Umass wins Hockey East.

    Honestly, I don't think any Hockey East team can stay within 3 goals of ND or Minnesota. The Big Ten/NCHC are at a different level this year.
