    I'd love for ASU to be in the new new WCHA, so hopefully they will get the rink built in the next few years!
    Groundbreaking supposedly is imminent, with opening hopefully for '20-'21 season.

      I appreciate the optimism but a rink being ready for 2020-21 is highly unlikely. Rink construction typically takes more than 9 months.

        You are correct. The desire was for the rink to be open for the 2nd half of the season (2021), but now they have moved it back a year and a half to the '22-'23 season. They tied the arena in with a bigger project.

              Another question is as an Independent how many Ws are needed to get into the tournament?

                Good news/bad news: Good news: Can't hurt yourself with a bad conference tournament loss (ASU last year was around #10 in the Pairwise when tournament came around. With no games to lose, they couldn't drop too far.). Bad news: Can't help yourself with some wins in the conference tournament (ASU this year might need to pass a couple of teams to get in. Hard to do without collecting some scalps.)

                  Not really a specific number needed, you just need to be in the top 16 of the PWR but also not get your spot taken by an autobid outside of the top 16.

                      I totally agree with you. To be safe in general they probably need to be ranked in pairwise around 11 or lower come conference tournament time.

                          I tell them to do that every weekend but they don't always listen to me!

                                Reason I ask is I grew up in GF, used to go the Sioux hockey games in the Old Barn. Was great watching them play Minnesota & Wisconsin, all great teams.
