    Hope the rest of the schools make a decision based on how their team has been handling the requirements and not punish them for issues going on in other parts of the school or community like UVM has chosen to do.







    Not good...this is potentially a bad sign for the school to as you said, "punish" kids who have been busting their butts and making sacrifices to stay away from covid spreading situations. I hope for the other 8 schools sake that administrators dont ruin this for the kids that have been working (not on the ice but EVERYWHERE else) all semester to this point to have some part of a season and then allow Vermont to get going again in a couple of weeks.

      9 schools... And I think you might see not only the school administrators doing this but the politicians as well. Poor kids for sure, but safety first!

        Had a chat with Coach Crowley with a big COVID focus to the interview (uh, obviously): https://www.bcinterruption.com/bosto...ey-hockey-east

          HockeyEast Power Ranking aka - HEPI ranking system: http://hockeyeastonline.com/women/standings/index.php

          HockeyEast tourney info here:
          http://hockeyeastonline.com/articles...ing-format.php

          Looks like things are relatively set. Most teams have played at least half of the conference but Vermont and Boston U have only had 6 or 7 games. The high end is 18 games for UNH with BC, NE, Providence, UConn, and Holy Cross all having at least 15 games so far.

            Heard from my favorite HE player that Providence has a significant enough Covid outbreak that they are done for the year. Wonder how that might change the tourney...

                I haven't heard that, and neither have the usual people I talk to, but it definitely could be true. PC stopped mid-weekend last week, isn't playing this weekend, and the conference tournament is literally next week.

                  Following up on this -- hearing PC is expected to be back next week but Merrimack is all done.

                    Interesting...thank you and good for Providence. I have not heard any updates from my kid. Will ask later this weekend if she has heard anything new.

                      It'll be interesting for sure. Right now Hockey East is at 9 teams for its tournament, so I'm guessing there's an 8/9 play in game being planned unless someone else drops out... which, frankly doesn't seem at all unlikely, since only 6 teams are playing this week.

                      Man, I am going to be SO ANGRY if we beat BU today and drop them back down to 7th. I don't want to play them in the first round at all.
