    That is in fact a conference rule, similar to the one that Ivies in DI have limiting the number of games that they play. The NESCAC rules also specify that the NESCACs don't start playing until the third week in November.

    The scheduling rule along with the presence of one particular team in the (then) ECAC East was when eventually led to the dissolution of the interlock between the NESCAC and what is now the NEHC

    It's a big pile of rocks.

    To say the least...

    There are people on here who study the D-3 rules as though they're preparing for the LSATs, and seem to revere them, but the bulk of that rule book is completely Byzantine/inane.

    Look, folks, nobody with Brain Cell One cares about the putative "purity" of D-3 hockey... In fact D-3 a slag-heap of grown men who couldn't make it to the professional ranks, and are going with Plan B.

    So let's disabuse ourselves that it's anything other than that, and enjoy the games. No D-3 player we ever watch is going to even receive a cup of coffee at the NHL level. It's all just for fun down here, and the misplaced morality in this regard (as in the bylaws that keep it "pristine") is/are truly ridiculous.

    I've seen a few...but thanks Fish

    In all seriousness that's why I love D3. The kids (grown men) just play to love the game for the most part.

    "A few", as in: Guy Herbert..? (Just asking.)

    I have no problem whatsoever with guys getting de-facto scholarships from pricey D-3 schools, even if it's throwing money down a rat-hole for those institutions. That's their business -they have money to burn- but let's call a spade a spade already.
