    I just think most D3 arenas (Kreitzberg included) could not handle a men’s final four crowd nowadays.

    You’d have to have at least 2500 seats I think to host it and have enough seating.

    A campus site when the host doesn't make the finals makes for a small crowd - If the Cadets had not made the finals, you would not have seen the kind of crowd that was there last night. I agree that if the facility is too big it spoils the experience. On the other hand, Lake Placid in 2010 was an amazing experience. There was a lot less atmosphere in 1999 and 2004 when it was at Kreitzberg and Norwich lost in the semis. It was great in 2003 when Norwich won at Krietzberg, but I think the idea of a right-sized neutral site is way to go.

    I agree.... but even Herb Brooks Arena looked pretty empty for that 2010 game.... same with Ritter Arena at Univ of Minnesota the following year even though it is less than half the size of Herb Brooks Arena.... whie the finals were a good crowd nowhere near capacity as I remember that game. I think the unfortunate reality is that unless a neutral site is within a couple hours of one of the final two that it is likely to seem pretty empty.

    That said, I like the idea of neutral sites.... just about any D1 arena would be big enough I would think... like the Gut or Thompson Arena.

    In looking back to the 2008 FF in Lake Placid, the semi final day with Plattsburgh vs Elmira and Norwich vs St. Norbert drew an announced 5600 and the Ntl Championship game between Plattsburgh and St. Norbert drew an announced 4770....total = 10,370... probably the 'Perfect Storm' with three top East Regional teams and SNC involved....I do remember a ton of Plattsburgh fans there...

    The first year was perfect. It’s been slightly downhill ever since....

    So lets say that we assume that not all the Platty/Elmira fans stayed for the second semi and/or not all the Norwich/SNC fans went to the Platty/Elmira semi... so there were 5,000 in attendance for those games.. that is only 65% of the HB Arena capacity but at the Gut or Dartmouth the place would be rocking!

    I still contend that if the players had their choice of Gutterson, Dartmouth or the 1980 Olympic Arena, Lake Placid.....most would want to play in Lake Placid !

    Except for his time with the Isles, Coiner never really got a good chance to show his skills in the NHL. There was a lot of sizeism in the NHL in the past.

    I find the lack of wild, rampant speculation disappointing
