Since the NCAA says that Frozen Four can only refer to the DI mens' and womens' semis and finals, it seems we need a term for the DIII events.

I would propose the Frosted Foursome or the Quiescent Quartet. Other ideas?

How about:

The Big Chill Championships

or

Le Grande Quatre (for our Canadian players and friends)

If the D3 championship is going to stay in Lake Placid (not a bad idea). Maybe the NCAA should have a trophy made up and they can link the name of it with the Adirondacks (Adirondack cup, High Peaks championship, etc).

Say what? And this is supposed to appeal to the 25 :rolleyes: teams in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Illinois, and Michigan.

Silly person. There is no hockey west of the New York border. Haven't you learned anything from being on this board? :D

Remove the cheese from your ears and conduct a survey in your listening area. You may find your opinion is not consistent with your listeners.

It is not my opinion. It is the opinion of the east people. Or most of them, I should say.

It should appeal to all of college hockey. It's not about east/west, it's about the venue, and the history that surrounds it. I understand that there is "eastern bias" all over this board, but this shouldn't be considered one of those cases. This is the site of a game that will have a special place in the history of college hockey, since it was college players that accomplished the feat.

If you can't beat them, maybe just join them and adopt the official NCAA nomenclature "The Insignificant Four":mad:

Screw the NC$$. It shall remain The Frozen Four in our hearts, and in our minds. And that is all that matter.

This is true, but I'm sure Webb and his colleagues can't use the term because the NCAA won't credential them. That would be worse than drinking water from a cup that doesn't say Dasini.

It may not help the west teams come selection time with all the criteria and the NCAA's low coffers, but Lake Placid is hands down the ideal Championship site.

The only downside is its remote location. Two and a half hours from Albany with zero cell service until you see the 'Welcome To Lake Placid' sign if I remember correctly.

The Olympic Committee is fantastic, especially with the use of the Olympic Training Center as a base camp for teams. It's design and function is to house athletes on a temporary basis. Full-service cafeteria, healthy snacks available 24/7, full workout facilities of world class, literally. Recreation like basketball, ping pong, Xbox 360 and more. Starting to sound like a commercial for Howard Johnson yet?

If you didn't go last year I recommend saving your pennies for this coming year, regardless whether your team is in the dance. Likely the best hockey experience I've ever had. Great town, unbelieveable history, beautiful setting and the locals love having us.

It should appeal to every hockey fan. Great excuse to visit a place every hockey fan should experience once.

I hear the adult grain oil establishments aren't bad either, but that's just second hand information. :D

HOCKEYGEDDON 3000. See, it works well because it won't become dated until after the year 3000.

The Non-Quiescently Unthawed Four" - note, while frequently misused, “unthawed” means “not thawed”, therefore if it isn’t thawed, it is frozen.
