  • So, I guess we shouldn't be holding our collective breath waiting for the Tucson cousins to join ASU in the NCHC...or anywhere else in D1 hockey...

      Yeah, I saw that & had the same thoughts, a real shame.

        • 2nd game of the tournament was not pretty but Sparky pulled it out, won the inaugural Adirondack Winter Invitational, bringing the hardware home. Next up - the 5th Desert Hockey Classic with ASU welcoming UMass-Lowell, Omaha, Harvard to the thaw out in the desert & have some holiday fun!

            • The good news : 10 straight wins, back to back weekend tournament championships. The bad news: it hasn't helped PWR.

                Next year playing in a conference should help.

                  The Pairwise, for a variety of reasons, is more Eastern-centered this year than in the last few years. With interconference play largely done (except ASU, of course), it's going to be hard for any of the Western teams to move up much.

                    Coach Powers took his best guess at playing power schools combined with the logistics of open schedules, just didn't work out. However, in attempting to be objective, if ASU had been able to schedule higher ranked schools they likely would have had a few more losses.

                    • One of the biggest things hurting ASU is all the home games. Yeah, it's great for fans, but it's impossible to pick up bonus points for road wins when you rarely leave your home rink.
                      Current NCAA D-I rinks I've been to:

                      AHA:
                      B1G: UMich, MSU, UMinn, Notre Dame, OSU, UWisc
                      CCHA: BSU, BG, FSU, LSSU, MSU, MTU, NMU
                      ECAC:
                      HEA: UMass
                      NCHC: Miami, UMD, UND, SCSU, WMU
                      Independant: ASU

                        Even this weekend, I thought Cornell would be higher than #19 in the Pairwise. But a sweep could really move ASU up.

                                That was a ****ing embarrassment. Got butthurt they blew the (slim) chances at making the NCAA's and turned into a goon squad.
