    Quick question halfway related to RPI hockey:

    Does the result of the Union/AIC game on Friday affect RPI at all in ranking/seeding? I imagine we want Union to beat AIC (which I have to believe will happen anyway) but it would be satisfying to go to Achilles and cheer for AIC.
    As it pertains to the Ratings Percentage Index (really, the only thing we need to worry about with our opponents unless they are playing each other), you almost always want to root for ECAC teams in non-conference play no matter who they're playing. There are a few exceptions but AIC definitely isn't close to being one of them.

      There is more to PWR than just RPI, as you know. It is, however, the most important component.
      RPI, though, is the determination of whether or not we are even considered for PWR points. We do not play AIC this year, so they are not a common opponent. I think we could safely say (safe enough to bet an AIC jersey on) that AIC will not be a TUC. Therefore, RPI, in this case, is the only component.

        I agree with that. The only way an AIC could help is that it would lower UC's RPI which could switch the comparison with them. It would probably hurt more in other areas in almost all situations.

        Those AIC jerseys are hard to come by.

            11 as in 2011. 11 as in "our amplifiers go to 11". Why not make 10 louder? But this one goes to 11!

            Your response makes the suggestion an obvious loser but I prefer Spinal Tap to comic book movies.

              An AIC win would actually make Union the first team out. FWIW, Dartmouth would also be in the tournament as of now.

                Thanks for the explanation. It think that I was better off before.

                    Tom, you're letting rational thought into the discussion. Tsk tsk.

                      It think you haven't been in tune with popular culture in about 30 years if you didn't get that one.

                        Does it count as thread killing if it's only one post?
