      I've heard their steaks are good. Maybe that could be substituted for the Broadmoor. The Final Five winner now receives a case of Omaha steaks.

      Or conversely, we could just uphold the status quo and keep it in St. Paul which is held in an AWESOME hockey facility with a ton of things to do within walking distance (beer tailgating, checking out Twin Cities skanks at Tom Reids, the Woodfire Grill place with awesome food, having 3 inches between yourself and the next person at McGovern's).

      How about this? Each arena could just alternate hosting, and the WCHA could lose a fortune. I'd love for it to be at tDECC, but frankly even 7000 seats ain't cutting it.

        But my point wasn't that it is too small, it isn't. I just expect a smaller rink to be more intimate than it is. There are way too many seats too far away for the size of the rink so it isn't that great for atmosphere IMO.

          Does that mean that instead of Red Baron pizza being handed out next to the arena they will hand out perfectly cooked Omaha filet mignons?

          Only if Tech gets to host first!!!

            My seats are usually on the end, maybe 5 rows from the top, and I love them.

            As for atmosphere, if the game warrants it, it's there. I haven't been to a more intense game with unreal atmosphere than the UND-MN F5 title game a couple years ago. Yes, that's a dream scenario, but when a game is good, the crowd is electric.
            Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

              Just think if the Gophers would have made the tourney and won a game or two..... the threads about it being an unfair advantage, why is it always there, blah blah blah would have been staggering.

                I've definitely been at the X when the atmosphere has been awesome, so that argument is pretty stupid. Luckily, the final 5 isn't going to be moved anywhere, because the people that make the decisions are smarter than the people on here that think it should be moved.

                  Unless another facility/city want to try to outbid St. Paul and the X, it's going to stay here. The bottom line is no other WCHA city has a facility that can compete with the X except Denver. Unfortunately for them, they aren't centrally located - only DU and CC are close. UNO is the next closest program - about 7 hours away. Everyone else would have to fly.

                  St. Paul is about as centrally located as you can get for this league. Only DU, CC, and UAA fans would be flying to get here. It's driveable for every other team.

                    Except Tech, they are always playing at home that weekend... with themselves.

                          Haha, I was there but I am pretty sure Tech wasn't. It was Wisconsin 4 - Bye Play-In Game 0

                            That sounds exactly like the Tech that I'm used to watching.
