      The end game for UAF/A is going to be a true western league, and that’s more of a 5 year plan. COVID slammed the brakes on any near-term resolution to that issue. Without that, honestly, I’m not sure what the point is. Most of the rest of college hockey has made it abundantly clear they aren’t interested in Alaska (or western teams in general).

      As for CCHA teams, I could maybe see Tech, NMU and Mankato occasionally scheduling the Alaska teams. Ferris and LSSU are too poor to make the trip without us paying for it, and the general feeling around our parts is that BG/Bemidji can go jump in a Great Lake.

      The scheduling will be interesting. I’m guessing the Governors Cup will go to at least 6 if not 8 games a season. We have a scheduling agreement with ASU, so that’s 10 (or 12 if we play them 4 times). If Huntsville continues to exist they’ll be on the schedule probably 4 games if they’re independent. We always have one or two NCHC teams scheduled anyway, so that gets to about 18 or 20 games. That’s assuming UAA and UAH continue to exist.
      Why is BG & Bemidji disliked, if you wish to elaborate?

        UAF made the kind of hockey history on October 10th 2015 that no team wants to claim – the Nanooks became the first NCAA Division I victim of Arizona State.

          I can think of a dozen plus D3 programs that would pose big problems for either of the Alaska teams on the ice.

            Were they the WCHA teams pushing the hardest on travel subsidies on top of PAC12 television payments?

              Maybe so, I do not follow D3 hockey at all. So what you are saying is that there are a dozen + D3 programs that if they played in the WCHA they would compete for home ice in the playoffs. That they would knock BGSU, MTU, LSSU, and FSU even further down standings. I applaud them.

                    • Has anyone talked about the Alaska schools doing 4 game air flights and playing schools semi nearby to a major airport. Players doing school online for a week. Play Sun-Mon at one place then Thurs-Fri at the next. Maybe a school with excess housing could work a deal out for housing and do 6 games in early January when most students are away from campus. Just for Geography sake. Fly into Detroit, stay at UM or State and hit two games at 3 schools in semi quick succession.

                          Travelling to ONE Alaska school wasn't a problem. The problem was two trips to Alaska a year, combined with the consistent "will they/won't they" have a team next season. UAH got left out because they hadn't put the program on solid footing.

                            For perspective, although the other WCHA teams made 2 trips to Alaska, the Alaska teams were making 10+/- trips to the Midwest. I wonder if the lack of solid footing was at all related to paying travel subsidies?

                              Seems like some of this could have been done by all WCHA members. The same could have been done by the other WCHA members on their trips to Alaska to help reduce their costs. Just saying....

                                Their lack of solid footing was due to the falling gas prices and the severe economic problems of the state of Alaska and their university system. It is hard to run a league when you don't know from year to year that all of the programs will remain solvent. That is the real issue here.
