My parents struggled to make ends meet, I had to pay for my own college (- the scholarships I received for being smart) and I feel no ill will towards the hockey players who came from Canada on tuition waivers. Many of whom are also US citizens now, as well.
The only people who feel ill will towards Canadian / Foreign students are the parents of Susie who had her spot on the roster and or playing time taken by Jenny from Mississauga Ontario...
The State and US government could save hundreds of times more in many other areas than allowing kids to get an EDUCATION at the SAME COST (not cheaper) than a US student. The money spent and or saved in foreign student education is so small compared to other things the government wastes its money on.
And yes, women's hockey in Canada is deeper and better overall than US. Get over it. The US has some great players yes, but the hockey pool is larger, deeper and overall better in Canada.
That girl Jenny from Mississauga is the problem that's for sure!

Most states have some form of reciprocity with other states. But for sure you would have issues going from a US institution to Canada as their guidelines are different, but truly that is the students fault for not knowing what the requirements were when they got into it.

Plattsburgh wins 3-0 in Buffalo. Camille Leonard now stands alone as the first DIII women's hockey goalie with 70 career wins, AND she gets within 2 of Aveson's DIII Women's record of 31 shutouts.
Hamilton v Conn Coll 0-0 tie, only 2 stars given in this one.
Adrian Wins 5-4 over Lake Forest, is LF a top 10 team? I don't think so, if not 4 for 8 on powerplay than this one is a blow out
Endicott beat Salem State 3-0, they should be moving up in the polls (that's sarcasm, Endicott hasn't beaten anyone that's any good!)
Oswego loses 3-1 to William Smith. The win vs Platt can only take you so far, they need to fall in the rankings. They might end up in 5th place in their conference.
4 of 8 on the PP is pretty impressive, but that doesn't make LF top 10.
Sarcasm understood by all. No need to explain it...kinda defeats the purpose.
Oswego and Utica will win today and finish tied for 3rd/4th (no idea who wins the tiebreaker...they split with each other), and Buffalo will lose and drop from 3rd to 5th.
In today's game, Oswego outshoots William Smith 59-18 and the game ends in a 1-1 tie. I think I smell a POTW award for Maggie Salmon. 113 saves and a .982 save percentage this weekend....

If corn oil is made from corn, and vegetable oil is made from vegetables, then what is baby oil made from?

Edit 2: Going into OT tied at 3.

Buffalo State skates to a 3-3 tie with Plattsburgh. Plattsburgh finished with 42-24 lead in shots but can't put the Bengals away. Finishes the regular season 23-1-1. On to the ECAC West tourney.
