    3- LSSU - could really make some noise, but haven't played anyone really tough yet, so pretty iffy
    4. MTU- if goaltending gets fixed, could win the league

    also, the rest of college hockey isn't dominated by a few teams like last year. BU isn't great, nor BC, nor Quinnipiac, so because of that there might be openings that weren't expected.

    comments?
    You're nuts.

    I could see two getting in, at most. The non-conference record is too bad right now.

    That's not reassuring. What happens if the NCAA tells them no?

    what is the waiver required for? Going below some required minimum? I would think an exception could be made for a pair of schools so far from most of the rest.

    When is the NCAA reasonable and thoughtful, though?

    If you make an exception for them, you have to make it for all. Unless you make a new Alaska/Hawai'i rule. I hope UAA & UAF find a way to make it work.

    Rarely. Very rarely. Unless you're a Power 5 school.

    UAF stays at 10, UAA drops from 13 to 10.

    I wasn't sure if I liked all the penalties at the start of the season, but I do like the results. Is it just me or does it seem the game has opened up and the players have adjusted.

    PWR only considers the first 40:00 of non-conference games, right?

    Jordan Uhelski was 31/32 after two, and the one that went in rang in —*he had the angle and the placement but the guy just snuck it in there.

    I've blacked out a lot of it, but I think that #2 was just a really good goal while #3 was a bad D-zone turnover. After that, it snowballed. I think that some of it was just bus legs.

    BG actually should have swept Miami. Outplayed them both nights could have won 7 or 8 to 1 tonight. BG just could not get a bounce to go their way last and Miami got the OT PP.

    They finally played 6 solid periods of hockey... the way we figured they would.....now can they do it 2 weeks in a row is the question.

    Hopefully not. I have grown to like his normal level of success.

    I hope not. We're just getting started with Walt - payback's a b*tch.

    In all seriousness, I think you're forgetting that their best player, Dominik Shine, appeared in his first 2 games of the year this weekend. Once he gets his feet back under him, they'll get better.

    The biggest change is that Kyle's contract now contains a fixed end date of the conclusion of the 2016-2017 season rather than being a rolling contract as it had been previously.

    What was the deal with Shine? Injury? Suspension for breaking team rules?

    No one has said much other than it was an "internal" situation. Team Rules would be my guess.
