    We didn't use the "Alaska exemption" the last time we had it, and I'd say we almost certainly won't this time, either. Especially given that with our new playoff format, we've shortened the regular season by a week. Rumor is we're getting a trip to BU this year (Until I see something official, I'm skeptical), the UMD split series, and hopefully another Fri-Sat home and home with the Gophers. If that's what it ends up being, you can't say we're ducking people.

    So it's definitely going to be set opponents? I know last year they did championship format, even though Colgate participated...

    I also have a St. Cloud series for Mankato. It'd put you at 36, which is about what I'd expect. I would not expect 38 games.

    Re: 2017-18 Schedules Thread

    Link to this year's spreadsheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...k08c3pHev5-Fw/

    Effectively complete* schedules:

    ECAC: Non-travel partner conference schedule mostly released

    NCHC: Conference schedule released
    Colorado College
    Miami
    Nebraska Omaha
    North Dakota

    * Effectively complete meaning the school has released the schedule, or enough alternate information has been reported to determine the schedule is complete, minus exhibition games. Discretion will be used to determine whether WCHA teams will be using their entire allotment.

    Hockey East will have each team play four extra league games 2 home and 2 away, so that makes BC's extra league opponents: Home UConn and UML. Away Maine and one of(NU,MC,UVM,UMA,UNH or PC).
    Maine and Vermont either play twice at home or on the road series against the others in Hockey East because of travel. So BC's Conference games only need that one to fill it. UML and UConn will host BC taking up the other 2 not listed on the spreadsheet.

    Is was reported Merrimack will be playing BU, Northeastern, Providence and Massachusetts three times. That drop BC's possible opponent for their last 3rd game to NU, UVM, MA, UNH or PC.

    It has to be a team they play once at home, so that drops UVM.

    Was it also reported HOW the specific teams comprising the 4 "extra" league games that each HEA team will now play in the post-Notre Dame era are/were determined? Was it based on last season's order of finish? Or has the League been partitioned into unofficial 'divisions,' so the extra games reside in each team's cross-over division? Is each team locked into its respective division permanetly? Will this season's 2 extra home games flip to road games vs. the same opponent next season? Is there a fixed rotation of opponents in place going forward? Just curious re: the details, and whether Bertagna and/or coaches and ADs have given any thought to ensuring some semblance of multi-year 'balance' vis a vis assigning extra opponents in future seasons ...

    For the four extra Hockey East games. Merrimack will have Boston University and Northeastern at home and UMass and Providence on the road.

    "When you look at our schedule for 2017-18 when we’re back at 11 teams, the coaches voted to add four games. So in addition to the home-away games against each opponent, each team will play an additional four games in the league, so we’ll have an imbalanced schedule.

    We had Tim Danehy, who does computer programming for the NCAA, he figured out a way to take the previous year’s standings and make it fair. You want to make sure someone isn’t getting the top-four teams or the bottom-four teams in those extra games. You need to get a mix, and there is a point system working in there.

    There’s the potential that, just because a team is eighth one year, it doesn’t mean they don’t have a good year the next, so you could have a schedule that has a concentration of very good teams. But no one wanted the alternative, which was 20 league games and 14 non-league games. Instead they wanted 24 and 10, so we’ll see how that goes. But I don’t see us getting to the point where we just take a 12th team because it isn’t working, we can make it work."

    Bertagna didn't mention more than one season, but the BDN reported that while UNH will visit Maine twice this coming season the Bears will visit Durham twice the following year.

    http://bangordailynews.com/2017/03/2...?ref=SportsBox


    "Each Hockey East team will play six conference opponents twice and four teams three times apiece. The schedule is set up on a two-year rotation so teams play the same four opponents three times.

    For example, UMaine’s extra games for 2017-2018 are against New Hampshire, Boston College, Boston University and Massachusetts. UMaine has the extra home game against New Hampshire and Boston University and plays twice on the road against Boston College and UMass.

    The home-game arrangement is reversed for 2018-2019.

    Bertagna and Hockey East director of communications Brian Smith said an algorithm was designed by Tim Danehy of collegehockeystats.net based on the 2015-2016 Hockey East standings to ensure the schedule is equitable."

    Interesting they're going to reverse it, instead of take the approach from the other leagues that over the course of a number of years, you get specific opponents an equal number of times. At least that makes next year easier.

    Are you sure about that. If the computer calls for an extra game at Vermont then to be fair it should be at Vermont. Unless it is tweaked to prevent that. For Maine it appears to have worked out well giving the extra game the opposite of the two initial ones. Maine and Vermont are unique in Hockey East scheduling and either play both at home or away.

    I am only going off a twitter feed which shows the match ups so with that stated I am ASSUMING they are going back to the points format to declare the champion as this would ensure that both Big Green and Yale do not face each other.

    Also on the twitter feed it states that the Big Green will be playing at DU and I believe it is in Denver!

    But if there was the call for an extra game, would they really play thrice away or thrice at home? That doesn't make too much sense to me, and they would at least try to split that up. Obviously BC has three 2-home-1-away situations, and given they've released a home schedule, we know the last one will be away. I would think it'd be a 1-2, but we will know soon enough.

    Correct! The 29th Annual Ledyard Classic will be played on December 29-30!
