    I forgot where I read this, but when our governor forced us all to gift 9 digits to some billionaires, I do recall reading a quote about how they wanted to host special events at the new arena, and I believe it was in the context of having icemaking capabilities despite the Admirals moving across the road to Whatever They're Calling It Now Arena.

    (Maybe not evident from the quoted post here, but this is in response to some discussion about Milwaukee and the new arena replacing the Bradley Center)

    Well this whole process is broken...if the NCAA can't get bids from more locations in the actual midwest/west then they need to change the process...

    It seems that the NCAA has taken the approach that members from the NCHC/WCHA/B1G will be considered for 2 regionals while HEA/ECAC/AHA will get the other 2...wonder if Air Force could bid on the east or northeast regional?

    Um, uh, does the host city for the 2018 West Regional have to rename to "Hawks Falls" before March 2018?

    Really, unless that shrader guy throws a kick @ ss welcoming party at The Shrader Estate, then there's not much reason to go to Buffalo. Were I younger I wouldn't mind a chance to p !ss on any building owned by Delaware North and Jeremy "Mr. Burns" Jacobs, but can't be bothered now.

    Re: Future Frozen Four sites

    Is it arenas that make the bids or the schools/leagues that host? Isn't there an arena in Rochester NY where the AHL teams play? Or the Mass Mutual center in Springfield?

    Its both but obviously the Arena wants to make money on it...many of the midwest regionals have done horribly with attendance so without beer sales, they struggle to turn a profit and most don't bid a 2nd time.

    Rochester hosted a Regional once (I believe it was the last time Clarkson made the NCAA playoffs).

    I know Rochester bid the last time selections were made, but didn't get picked. I don't know if they bid this time around.

I assume it all came down to what each host university/city bid for $$$. Too bad as Portland would be a great City to spend a weekend.

    New York City to Portland, ME: 315 miles
    UND campus to Sanford Premier Center ("Hawks" Falls): 320 miles.

    And how many DI programs do you drive past from NYC to Portland?
    I guess easterners can't be bothered with more than a 100 mile drive. < shrug >

    Not sure about the relevance of New York here.
