    EDIT: After doing a little bit of research, it looks as though the International Intercollegiate Hockey League (IIHL from now on) was basically the Ivies and some Canadian schools (I could be wrong, I've done minimal research). I don't know the years that the IIHL played, but it looks it at least partially overlapped with the Ivy League. Either way, the IIHL was not counted, nor will it count. Perhaps this could be revisited if the day ever comes when a Canadian School joins the NCAA and D-1 hockey.
    Thanks for the answer. I'm interested where you found your information for the NEIHL and other leagues. The basis of most of the information I have is from the Official Ice Hockey Guides and The Intercollegiate Hockey Newsletter. I have supplimented that with newspaper articles, college yearbooks and media guides.

    The IIHAA is mentioned in one of the early Official Ice Hockey Guides I looked at recently. I need to look into it some more to see how lomg it may have lasted and if other teams were members.

    As you mention, the IIHL had both Ivies and Canadian colleges so I doubted it would be counted. However, I thought I would throw it out there as it was also in the Guides I happened to look at recently. I didn't bother to mention the leagues with the Pacific coast programs as they are all either defunct or club teams now.

      I used team's Media Guides. Most teams include their conference and conference finish in their year-by-year results.

        I don't really have an answer for you there. Somebody that has more depth in understanding of that particular era (or of that particular school) would probably be able answer that for you.

            I just thought I would let everyone know that I am planning on doing a midseason update of the Greatest Programs.

            I'll post a link in here to CHW when I have finished with the midseason update.

                Thank you. Michigan has a big enough lead that I don't think they can be caught this season. North Dakota could get awfully close though if they were to win the title and if Michigan were to have a poor second half.

                  Wow!

                  Perhaps they will just "make" an NCAA tournament.

                        I was originally planning on updating it monthly

                        Towards the end of the year is when the points really start to add up...so I definitely could just post it then, but I figured a midseason update works as well. There won't be huge differences in standings/points, but it is still interesting to see (at least for me) what direction teams are going at this point in the season.

They also beat "Brock Hall of CT" for the AAU Title. Neither of those teams were a part of the EAHL. I would love more information about those two squads, so if you have it, it would be greatly appreciated.

                          North Dakota didn't have a team in 1940, so anyone would have been "better" than nothing.
                          It could very well be a reference to the Amesbury Maples from Amesbury, MA. These days the team is essentially an adult rec league team as far as I know, but Amesbury is a predominantly French Catholic town, and I believe the Maples have been around in some form since the 1920's and according to rumor were supposedly were pretty good back in the day.

                              Given the changes in your life and the other responsibilities you've assumed since then, I suggest that holding off until end of season to do an update then is much more practical and understandable!

                                Yeah, that is what I think I will do. I was hoping to get the midseason update done by the time law school started back up, but obviously life happens. I'll probably make the updates in May when school ends for the semester, unless I get time during Spring Break to get the biggest part of the legwork done. I wouldn't count on that though, as I have to get ahead during Spring Break so that the trip to Tampa for the Frozen Four won't be bogged down with school work.
