  • By the way.....CC misses because they lost to Augustana on October 28. A bad loss. They would have been a #3 otherwise.

        • Mike McMahon is in complete disbelief that common sense prevailed in regard to keeping Maine-Cornell in Springfield and Michigan-North Dakota in Missouri.

          Now, the funny thing here is they hit the jackpot of teams in Missouri where the 2,500 seats won't be enough. Man is this system broken.

          • Fun Fact: According to College Hockey News, eight of the eleven youngest teams in Division One are in the Tournament -- BC, Denver, BU, Michigan State, Wisconsin, Cornell, Minnesota and Michigan, along with the oldest team in Division One, RIT. LINK

              And… Maine is tied for 12th. UMass is tied for 16th.

                Ya "neutral sites" falls on complete deaf ears to me when it seems like a #3 or #4 seed end of benefiting from it more than top seeds and now they're playing in a 2500 seat arena when they could sell 5-10k tickets for a regional baffles me. We could have 1st round home matches on campus at BC, Wisconsin, Denver, Maine, Michigan State, North Dakota, BU and Minnesota. Would be absolute insane atmospheres, instead we're forced to deal with this nonsense

                  Easy solution for Missouri. Sell tickets for each game separately, that way you double the attendance there for the first day.

                    So 5000? Still doesn’t equate to the capacity of any of the top schools. On campus for the regionals is the way to go. Neutral for the semis and finals.

                    • Are there parameters in place for hosting a regional? I thought there was one with regards to arena size, but that could be wishful thinking on my part. I don't understand how Maryland Heights got the bid based on their size. Was it given an exception? It's a practice rink for the St. Louis Blues. I'm flabbergasted as to how it even was selected.

                      Family circumstances and lack of time to book a trip are preventing me from making the trip to Sioux Falls. I'm always up for adding both a new arena to see BU play in, plus a state I've never been too. Sadly, not in the cards this season. Trying to figure out if I go to a watch party or watch from the comfort of my couch where I can change the channel if things go awry.

                        WHAT?!?!?! I've been told over and over that older players are an unfathomable advantage that can't be overcome!

                        • The NCAA is shooting themselves in the foot scheduling games on Easter weekend. Not only do they lose fans because of family obligations but they again compete with the sweet 16 in basketball for fans attention. I know they think that weekends are better for attendance but by making a day off between they already take it one day out of the weekend. Why not play it on a Monday/Tuesday with locality getting more preference whereby you don't compete for fans. Better yet they could have gone to the following weekend this year with few basketball games to compete with. I know that it would give little time for fans to make arrangements but the Frozen 4 is essentially sold out anyway. They could sell combination hotel and game ticket packages to the participating schools by blocking off hotel rooms for them. There is a way it can be done with proper planning.

                            • With Maryland Heights being deemed acceptable I can't wait for BC or BU to submit a bid to host in the Warrior Ice Arena!

                                Canisius cannot host in the Harbor Center, the Sabres practice facility as it is their home rink but Niagara could.
