    Well now that you've been so gracious as to educate us easterners about how this college hockey thing works, I guess I will reconsider my position on this topic and think about joining you because your opinion must be right...

    Nope... I still think the conf tournament is more important.

    You're right. BU and BC fans wouldn't know anything about that difference.

    ^This guy gets it.

    UNH should move to the WCHA. Imagine the arguments over who is more awesome because of their RS titles.

    Well the Atlantic was an exception, no? Don't think that should be counted then.

    Not even close the regular season title is much bigger than getting hot for 3 or 4 games.

You need only to be hot at the correct time and win 4 of perhaps 5 games against just 3 teams to win in the tournament, while winning in the regular season means beating many more teams over the course of 24-28 games.
    If you win your conference, I'd venture to guess that you're going to the tourney already.

    It's somewhat sobering to realize that my alma mater (RPI) has not won its league's regular season championship since 1985.

    We have been pointing, for a very long time, toward the conference playoffs as the only chance to make the NCAA tournament. Under the circumstances, it's pretty hard to view the regular season as being bigger than the playoffs.

    Officially, the WCHA title is awarded to the regular season champion. That just is, its not an opinion. The Conference Tournament is like if the NHL, between the regular season and the playoffs, held a mini set of playoffs within the divisions that gave the Islanders another chance, even though their terrible once again, and which the Rangers won because Lundqvist got hot. Whoop-de-doo.
    Exactly. I do enjoy linking this debate to professional sports because professional sports leagues don't even bother with a "Conference Tournament" like the NCAA has. They have the Regular Season and then go straight to the Elimination games/series.

    To crown a conference champion based on a handful of games doesn't make a whole lot of sense, at least IMO.

    Regular Season crown means jack $hit.

    well, since only UNH fans reasonably believe a regular season title is better than a national title, the better baseball analogy for that year is the AL pennant (not the world series); but since the same team won that your moot still stands

    stop trying to make us cry, onion man
