    WTrumpet… what is your hometown?
    I was hoping to go to Lincoln Speedway (New Oxford) or Port Royal Speedway on Saturday night, but the weather forecast doesn’t sound conducive to that plan. So I may just go to the America on Wheels Museum in Allentown.
    I grew up in Westminster, MD...which is a good 2.5 hr drive from Allentown, but closer than Michigan. I wouldn't mind going to Hoffman's for some ice cream. I would also cram my car full of Utz chips to bring home if I make it to Pennsylvania.

    I probably won't do this because the off day regional format means taking 2 days off, and it's doubtful NaSK could take 1 let alone 2 days to go with me, but I'm looking at a big road trip to Allentown.

    I'd use the off day for nostalgia. I'd drive down to Hershey and go on the chocolate world ride (since the theme park doesn't open until 4/1). Then maybe down to my hometown which I haven't been back to in a decade (my parents moved out of state in 2012).

    Give them time. Realistically, Sioux Falls is a good location for a west regional, so they will certainly have chances.

    2024 is *some* risks- Missouri gets to have a regional hosted by Lindenwood. And SOUTH Dakota gets one hosted by UNO. I'm sure ND and Minnesota will have no problem going there.

    Sioux Falls is the west regional in '24, the Midwest in '26.

    Other than Toledo, there are no other actual midwest hosts through '26. Maybe when our program can get some stability we will make a bid for somewhere. But we can use some help from all the rest of the schools in the lower part of our state.

    What's the deal with Truscott? Out for the year?
    Is this a result of his injury in January?

    I'm sure MSU would go along with their B1G buddy.

    IMO, Michigan has some burnt bridges to repair before most of the Michigan schools partner with them.
    So nice that you totally missed my point. ANY one of the other schools in the state can also host a regional. Not help Michigan do it, but host it as well.

    But continue hating and lashing out for no good reason. Fine by me.

    It should be noted that it's not going all the way down to the NHL 200x85, despite what Clymer said on the broadcast.
    Can't remember what the exact measurements will be but it's gonna be 200x90-93.

    Just another case of Clymer saying the wrong thing but with a lot of confidence.
    Sort of half way, then. Ok. So it should still be more open and fun to watch, then. I was also trying to figure out how you reseat the fans when it's *that* much narrower. But going half way isn't quite as bad.

    Help from the little people? It never ends.

    The roof definitely came off after that goal, although that didn't last long lol.

    Olympic rinks are a thing of the past, I think there's only a couple left. With how effective the NCAA has become producing pro-ready players it only makes sense to have a rink that better translates to the NHL for recruits. I don't mind the changes because our style of play has become much more NHL-like than in the past. I actually think our game would translate better against you guys on NHL/Hybrid rinks than Olympic.
    Really? I see our games as almost identical. Which is why our games go so very fast in time.

    I always thought it was funny how some Michigan fans would complain about playing on your sheet, even though we always, always played well there and at Northern. Didn't win every game, but our style of play translated perfectly to the bigger sheet.

    Alas, end of an era. I see your point, especially since the Olympics use NHL players more often than not- so sheet size is almost irrelevant.

    But you hit on why I enjoy watching these teams play, even if it's so stressful.
