    Yes, that is correct, but it is just a single game for the US Hockey Hall of Fame like Tech played this year vs WI. It will also be held at the Orleans venue, not T-Mobile.

    I "strongly dislike" the Whioux?, but honestly that is a game that should be played at T-Mobile (~17,500 capacity) rather than the Orleans (<7,800 capacity). The Ice Vegas Tourney could have been at the Orleans for the first couple years with capacity to spare. Very good chance they could have told out T-Mobile as well, or at least come very close. People have been begging for this game since the Whioux? walked away from the WCHA.

    Much like the Desert Classic a few years ago, when you put 3,000 fans in a rink that seats 15,000+, the atmosphere suffers. If I want to see hockey in a rink that is 90% empty, I'll go watch the Bi6(7) conference tourney.

    The Orleans Arena is owned by Boyd Gaming. MGM is the tournament founder and partner with bdglobal in it. MGM is also a partner in T-Mobile Arena.

    T Mobile was absolutely frigid on Friday. Didn't seem as cold Saturday but maybe because I added a layer. With that being said, I didn't think the ice was in great shape. Maybe because you had 4 teams practicing there?

    In regard to Tech attendance, just curious if you guys know. Where do your alums live? Primarily Michigan? Spread out somewhat evenly across the US? I was very impressed with the # of Tech fans there and definitely was not expecting it. I know Vegas is a special kind of trip but still an impressive showing. First time I have had the chance to see Michigan Tech play in person.

    We have a quite a few snow birds in the southwest, but yes, most alums are in Michigan, Chicago, Wisconsin, Minnesota. We have always traveled well...We were the largest crowd at the Desert Hockey Classic, always draw well to the GLI and were the best draw or very close 2nd (penn state) at the regional last year in Cincinnati.

    Tech generally has the biggest visitor contingent of any of Kato's WCHA opponents. Many are Twin Cities people, but there are a good number down from the UP as well. Keep it up! We need the revenue and the atmosphere!

    Back from Vegas, and I have to say, I don't think I've had a more enjoyable college hockey road trip. There is not a better place in the country to travel for an event like this than Vegas. We gambled, watched hockey, gambled, watched some shows, had some great meals, gambled, walked the strip multiple times, and ran into other Tech fans and former players all the time. We went out there expecting a good time, and our expectations were completely exceeded. The entire trip was incredible, and we will go back any and every year Tech is invited back.

    The arena was very nice. Yes, it was too big for this tournament, at this point in the process, but hopefully it will grow into T-Mobile. The arena in-game staff was not Golden Knights staff, so they were still figuring it out. I was very impressed with Tech's fan turnout, I thought we did a great job of showing that we should be invited to these kinds of events, because we will travel.

    Fingers crossed that Tech is back in the field again in the near future!

    With NMU's fan support, if they hosted a championship game, the WCHA would move back to neutral sites. *******http://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...e8.jpg********

    Well, they only draw for one opponent. And I think we all know who that is.

    And they don't even let the Pep Band in the building.

    They should let the pep band play in the arena (if it came down to it) for a playoff game. Something that needs to be addressed by the league.
    Hell, Tech's band played in Minnesota even when the hockey team didn't make it there; back in the former WCHA.

    I guess I should have written "Pep Band".

    Ah, they got to play in the 18,568 seat XCel Energy Center. Can you post a copy of Tech’s invitations to opposing teams bands.

    The Mac doesn't need the opposing fans or their pep bands to provide a great atmosphere.
