    Well, I know people want to point to playing in warm weather on a campus full of hot chicks as things that will attract good players, but if that really was a big factor.

    Aside from another BIG school (that currently doesn’t have a D1 hockey program) starting one, I think Arizona State would make a good 8th (affiliate) team in the conference. Give it some time…eventually the perk of playing D1 hockey in the desert will pay off (at) Arizona State U and they will field a very competitive team.

    We’ll have to see. As I said in that part of the sentence you chopped off in the quote, I’m still convinced it should have happened already with all the things Powers has on top of playing in the desert. I’ll agree that they probably won’t be UAH 2.0 or, more locally, NAU 2.0 because ASU has Pac-12 resources, but at the same time, ASU has Pac-12 resources. If ASU really is sitting on a golden goose, the only real handicap I can see that might explain their slower rise compared to that of PSU (who didn’t have the desert, portal, Pac-12, etc) is that Powers doesn’t have Guy Gadowsky’s resume, but I keep being told that’s unimportant for reasons still unknown to me.

    That, and they were playing in a rink smaller than Roseville Ice Arena for their first few years. Even with the weather, women, and wine, it’s still tough to recruit a NHL-track player when your facilities are clearly third rate. We will see what happens soon with their new rink.

     

    It is still amazing to me the new ASU rink will host NHL home games. 5,000 seats.  The North Stars left Minnesota in the early 90’s and averaged 11,000+ tickets sold (except the year they went to the Stanley Cup Final and averaged just under 8,000 tickets sold).

    People in Kato can rest a little easier about Hastings leaving for a college job now that the big ones are filled (minus the Michigan situation). Schlossman did say on a podcast that maybe he may get a look from a few NHL teams.

    Hastings may get a look by some NHL teams. But can he relate to those younger players?

    With Granato’s extension through 2027 he isnt taking the blame.  Stroebel resigned so he was the fall guy.

    Nate Leaman signs extension with Providence. Greg Brown, a former BC assistant and current head coach with the Dubuque Fighting Saints in the USHL is now the front runner.

      Badgers bringing back Andy Brandt (current Associate HC at St. Norbert’s) from their 2006 team to replace Strobel.

       

       

      Maybe Robbie Earl can give lessons too.

        The NCAA has granted two changes that men’s and women’s college hockey coaches and commissioners have requested.

        First, the NCAA moved up the date for the first allowable full-time practices.

        In the past, full-time practices — 20 hours a week — often didn’t open until about the time teams were playing their preseason exhibition games.

        Now, they’ll open a week earlier.

        Teams will still have limited hours prior to the opening of full-time practices.

         

        The second change allows schools to schedule other NCAA colleges in exhibition games — something that was granted temporarily during the coronavirus pandemic. It will now become permanent.

          The pandemic waiver to allow NCAA teams to schedule each other for exhibition games.

          I like the idea in principle and enjoyed the scrimmage against the Tommies this past season, but it should come with the stipulation that nonconference games that have already been scheduled can not be redesignated as exhibitions.  Otherwise it’d create a fun new way to duck marquee matchups during the WJC.

          It’s found immediately after the words “The second change.”

            I think this is an underwhelming pick to be commissioner of the NCHC.

            Tech is hosting this years GLI in Grand Rapids. Michigan is not part of it this year, so Mel will have to find another team to avoid on its schedule instead of Western.

              Doesn’t surprise me.

              Though it wasn’t that look ago there was a lot of talk of frustration that these holiday tournaments were difficult to find teams for and usually were against no-name opponents. A bit hard to believe we’re seeing someone pull out of their own tournament for the exact opposite problem.

                UST arena proposal progresses to public hearing, but there appear to be a lot of questions.

                https://www.therinklive.com/mens-division-1/ccha/proposed-st-thomas-hockey-arena-other-facilities-at-highland-bridge-site-faces-public-hearing

                I will illustrate mine quickly from UST’s perspective:

                A 4500 seat arena likely means around 4000 seats sold per game, times 18 home dates, times $35/ticket = $2.5M. That is a pretty rosy picture for them. We have complained about Gopher ticket prices to watch Michigan and Penn State, and could UST get that to play Northern Michigan and Lake Superior State?

                But given that they likely need around $4-5M to run both men’s and women’s hockey, there is a pretty big shortfall there. How will that be made up?

                A second sheet of ice is likely to be a drain also, given that Schultz Arena and Drake are within about 2 miles also, and neither are full up.
