    "while emphasizing league games"....I would take that to imply that HE teams do not plan on scheduling out of conference teams. Does anyone else read that differently?

      There was more information on a Twitter site last night ( @jimmyconnelly). Cannot confirm his connections, but he seems to be be followed by a bunch of hockey guys and he tweeted last night that there would be a Hockey East announcement today, so this gives him some validity with the earlier league post:

      Here were some of the highlights of last night's tweets:

      1) Play probably does not begin until mid-late November;
      2) Multiple iterations of schedules, but possibly could be a full league season (30-men, 27-women) if all goes well;
      3) Intention to hold conference tournament as scheduled (8 teams, two weekends);
      4) Emphasis on league schedule in case adjustments need to be made along the way. Non-league games are possible if teams can find opponent/open dates;
      5) Everything is still fluid but there seems to be a commitment to play as much hockey as possible;
      6) Possibility of fans will be determined as they get closer to the games in conjunction with state/local restrictions;
      7) Priority on limiting hotel stays with the exception of Maine and Vermont games.
