    It's my understanding that in a multi-team tiebreaker, you use the tiebreaker to get 1 team that wins, then start the whole process again. So in this case, you'd determine the #1 seed, then start it again as a 7-team tie, so the records you used to determine #1 won't be the same. After you determine which team comes out of that, you start all over again with a 6-team tie, etc...

      Scott is 100% right, but it's also 100% not worth the effort of running 28 tiebreakers for it, you already did more than enough.

        Agree. Sean always provides lots of useful information but unless this scenario comes close to happening leave it as he presented. Besides it is great to see UConn at the top and BC preparing for a trip to Hartford. If that doesn't motivate BC to turn it up a notch nothing will. That scenario is probably the .2% chance that BC doesn't make the NCAA tournament field. That is of course if they lose to UConn in that Quarterfinal.

          I'd love to see Albany and Stony Brook add hockey. Would be great to get HE exposure in the Capital District as well as out on LI.

            If you want exposure in NYC get a team from NYC. Not sure who it could be or where they could play but it would be interesting. I think Sacred Heart must be intent on being the 12th team with the on campus rink meeting requirements. Wouldn't be surprised if they had some discussions about it already before proceeding with their plans. Only other prominent schools that fit the footprint are of course those other 4 already mentioned, RPI, Holy Cross, URI and Quinnipiac. But how about the possibility of a D1 program in Hockey for MIT, Brandeis, Tufts or Clark. All top 100 Universities that could use a name brand sport besides swimming or track and field.

              Unlikely to happen as those schools are D3 and are probably not going to elevate their athletic programs to D2 or D1. Besides, ice hockey is not one of the 33 men's, women's and coed varsity teams MIT currently offers.

                  Is that confirmed with the league office? Hockey East has only had three 3-way ties and twice the head-to-head broke them completely. Only the last time it happened did 2 of the teams remain tied and the tiebreakers have to be reapplied. The current tiebreaker rule states "If more than two teams finish in a tie, the same criteria will be applied to reduce the number of teams tied, and then the process will commence again," but it doesn't say if it will only reduce the tie by one team (and from the top or bottom) and start again with all the remaining teams or just with the remaining tied teams (as I did). If anyone is interested I have added a sheet to my workbook with the previous 3-way ties. For the two completely broken ties dropping one team (from top or botton) and reapplying the tiebreakers didn't change the seeding order. For the third one the top 2 teams remained tied, so the bottom team was dropped and the tiebreakers were reapplied.

                      Seriously? Yeah....let's get these dead end New England liberal arts schools & D3s instead of NY flagship schools with thousands of students, growing athletic depts & more media coverage.

                        If we're talking about NY, I'd much rather see Syracuse. Already with a women's program plus a sizeable fan base and alums spread throughout the northeast. (Not holding my breath.)

                            I was afraid HEA would go this route. Disappointing. Feels like a parochial hire. I don't get a sense that this will help address some of the issues (officiating, marketing, attendance) that the conference has been plagued with.

                              Nothing will make BC fans happy unless they get an invite from Big Ten hockey.
