Re: NCAA Hockey 2021-2022 Season

It may also help make sure that all the regional games be shown on TV instead of a couple streamed. Not sure how ESPN thinks about the idea of an extra day of hockey on TV though I'm guessing you mean if the regional weekend were a combined 4 days instead of 3 (ex. 2 regionals have semis Friday and...

To be clear, most of the details were already known after his resignation from RMU and his USA Hockey ban; the U just got hit with a lawsuit now bringing it back to the forefront.

Fairbanks wasn't a surprise since, without Anchorage, there's nobody local to play and they're now an independent (or about to be), so they have to take whatever they can get.

Mercyhurst is unexpected. Aside from independents, I'm surprised to see anyone outside of the conference flying to the Twin Cities when travel budgets are likely to take a hit for awhile.

I would hope something else takes College Hockey Stats' place or somebody else takes over. It has been such a great resource and it's departure would leave such a huge vacuum.

I'm guessing a WCHA crew is going to work this game, but if an East Coast crew does instead and calls a tight game, would there be an advantage for either team or be a wash?

For 5 yes. Hopefully it doesn't take another pandemic to get all 6 with the Tommies about to join us. Statistically that's just going to be pretty unlikely. Yeah maybe so. There is an outside chance of it though, more so if the WCHA/CCHA gets stronger or one of the MN schools decides to go elsewhere.

Eight teams, half the field, were in the iteration of the WCHA that existed just before the Big10 formed.
