    Re: Lake Placid Attendance

    Without Norwich, Plattsburgh, Oswego, Geneseo, Utica, Hobart, Trinity, I cannot believe it will be a big turnout in Lake Placid.

    Is it ever, anywhere..?

    But, yeah, I'd expect a low turn-out there yet again.

    I was at the ECAC final last weekend ( unfortunately Cornell lost on Friday 💦&#128166. But for the Saturday final between Clarkson and Princeton, attendance was listed as just under 6000. My rough estimate was that the Olympic Center was about 85% full. And it was a VERY exciting game

    The latter two options would guarantee a full arena for both semifinal games.

    Agreed, normally near sell outs when Point and SNC face each other during the regular season at either venue.

    Re: Lake Placid Attendance

    On the way home from the game Saturday, my daughters and I hatched a plan for how to get to Lake Placid, instead of what we have planned for the weekend.

    Since we are going to be on the road Thursday anyway, Daughter #2 said, "Let's just go. Mom will fall asleep in the car. When she wakes up and we're in Ohio, it will be too late to turn around."

    Unfortunately, my wife vetoed the plan, noting, "I'd have to pee long before we made it to Ohio."

    So, I will not be joining in the fun in person.

    Funny! My wife was the one pushing for a trip to Lake Placid on our drive home Saturday, but I had to be the one to veto it.

    We'll be there, Section 7 as usual. I don't need much of an excuse to get to Lake Placed, and three good hockey games does it. So what time do the Lakers play on Friday?

    Wait... what???

    I'm guessing that the attendance will be fairly abysmal. Colby and Salve don't even draw at home, Point is an outpost (been there, BTW), and Placid is a major haul from Green Bay (been there too).

    It's a fun town, but "you can't get there from here" in almost any D-3 context.

    I'm actually expecting SNC to bring the most fans. Granted, that's not saying much, but...

    I remember watching the broadcast two years ago, the announcer joked that there were 2000 fans dressed up as empty red seats.

    Re: Lake Placid Attendance

    The thing about neutral sites is that they can still usually hold more people than campus sites, even when the campus sites sell out. Granted, neutral sites can still appear to be "empty" even with numbers that exceed campus sites because of the size of the building. And thus, atmosphere can suffer. I get that. But, to just flippantly say neutral sites are a failure based purely on attendance is wrong. The numbers are pretty good at times. It's the intangibles that need to be compared.

    Here are the attendance numbers as reported at Lake Placid, followed by the other neutral sites. The semifinal games are listed in parenthesis in the order they were played, in case it matters for those years separate semifinal attendance figures were given (I don't know how they do that since they don't empty the arena out between games). ADDED: Championship final teams are bolded.

    2008 (St. Norbert vs. Norwich, Elmira vs. Plattsburgh)
    Semis: 5600
    Final: 4770

    2009 (Gustavus vs. Stout, Neumann vs. Hobart)
    Semis: 3036
    Final: 3141

    2010 (Oswego vs. St. Norbert, Norwich vs. Plattsburgh)
    No attendance listed.

    2012 (St. Norbert vs. Norwich, Oswego vs. Amherst)
    Semis: 2100/3100
    Final: 3300

    2013 (Oswego vs. Norwich, Eau Claire vs. Utica)
    Semis: 1538/1389
    Final: 2089

    2016 (Geneseo vs. Stevens Point, St. Norbert vs. UMass-Boston)
    Semis: 653/2282
    Final: 2304


    ELMIRA 2006 (Hobart vs. St. Norbert, Elmira vs. Middlebury)
    Semis: 1373/2554
    Final: 1474

    SUPERIOR 2007 (Oswego vs. St. Norbert, Middlebury vs. Manhattanville)
    Semis: 1293/1042
    Final: 1052

    RIDDER 2011 (Adrian vs Oswego, Norwich vs. St. Norbert)
    Semis: 1761
    Final: 1741

    MAINE 2014 (Geneseo vs. St. Norbert, Stevens Point vs. Oswego)
    Semis: 1827
    Final: 1851

    RIDDER 2015 (Trinity vs. Adrian, Stevens Point vs. Amherst)
    Semis: 1181/1284
    Final: 1303

    UTICA 2017 (Trinity vs. St. Norbert, Adrian vs. Norwich)
    Semis: 1525

    Colby does alright, considering that most of their 1800 students are off campus for a good chunk of hockey season due to semester break and a January program of independent study. The on-campus arena holds 1700 and is sold out every year for the rivalry game with Bowdoin, complete with the annual squid toss and occasional grilled cheese sandwiches (Colby - get it..?). As I am writing this, I finally understand why they schedule that game so early in the season (first weekend in December).

    When are the NE teams traveling? I suspect it might be an issue today...
