All good comments. I think that the real question early on was whether the events center (aka rink) would be large enough to hold graduation exercises, but that was pretty much dismissed, I think, as even 3500 seats would be too few based on the current number of guests allowed each student. But, any number of seats between 2000 and 2500 for hockey might be better suited for the ECAC (Hobey seats 2100, RPI seats over 5200, but most are under 3000), rather than the HEA (Lawlor seats about 2500; Conte, XL, and Mullins seat over 7500; but most are in the 4000-6000 range); and of course 2000 seats will be fine for the AHC (RIT seats 4300, but most of the rest are between 1000 and 2700). I think that overall the goal should be for the AHC teams to become more competitive, win more OOC games, and get more than one auto-seed team into the NCAAs. And, for Bentley, the team needs to get back to the AHC tourney in Rochester, which is becoming a more and more distant memory.
