    Re: The ECAC Championships are moving...

    Wow, not thrilled. Never thought Albany was really all that bad - I'll be sure to appreciate it even more this year, pending SLU makes it.

          Reminds me of companies that design products and when customers don't start buying them, their rationale is that the customers are just "too dumb to get it." This is classic stuff and is exactly why many companies fail and why events change locales.

          For me, AC would not have been my first choice...but at least I know that the ECAC office is not some form of ponzi scheme. I was starting to wonder if anyone worked there.

The fact that a number of Americans games were postponed/forfeited due to a leaky roof that warped the floor should be immaterial to the merits of the Northern

            Now, an arena that WOULD fit the ECAC would be the South Mountain Arena located in East Orange(?). Just off the interstate and past Seton Hall Prep, the SMA has been host of the NJ State High School championships and other important events in its long and illustrious history.

              SMA is also where the Devils practice, so it has adequate locker room space and parking even though it's not in a metropolitan area (both my parents grew up in surrounding towns). It was recently redone and really is quite nice, but the fact that there are few hotels near by and little to no other attractions in the vicinity, I don't ever see the ECAC utilizing the rink. (The only restaurant I'd want to go to right in the area is Starlite and that can't hold a whole crowd's worth of people).

                  Well they blew-up Puckman in Albany last night, and they blew up his house too,
                  Down on the boardwalk gloves dropped in a hell of a fight, gonna see what those Fightin' Deer Ticks can do,
                  Now there's trouble musclin' from outta state, and Feola can't get no relief,
                  Gonna be a rumble out on the prominade,
                  And non-conference Huntsville is holding on by the skin of its teeth.

                          South Mountain (now Richard J. Codey Arena) is in West Orange. It's nice enough after the recent renovation, but it only seats 2,500; decent for regular games for a team that doesn't have many fans, I guess, but not big enough for any kind of a major tournament. And no, there's really not much around. (Trust me, I grew up like five minutes from there.)

                              The Devils do not use Cody Arena (SMA) as their practice facility anymore opting for the new practice rink that's attached to the Prudential Center.

                              I always wished that Seton Hall would jump into varsity hockey and Cody Arena with some minor renovations would be a perfect venue for that school. Of course pigs will be flying before that ever happens.
