The reorganization of existing teams into new conferences may lead to the growth of D1 college hockey, but I'm not sure how? If college hockey doesn't grow it will become an increasingly minor and provincial sport, although this would suit some fans just fine. If you're one of them, stop here.
I believe expanding college hockey's fan base is the critical element in the growth of college hockey. A number of things could contribute to expanding the fan base, including bigger rinks, more games, a longer season, more teams, better parking, etc. - but I believe more access to watching college hockey is the key to its growth. I believe a deliberate and concentrated effort to seek increased TV coverage of college hockey is by far the most effective initiative that the NCAA, conferences, teams, and fans can make - even if it produces no immediate financial rewards.

I think that we need to work on (as a collective whole) the trademarks and copyrights associated with college hockey. Think about it. If college hockey owned something exclusively they could exploit that revenue - regardless of conference affiliation!!!!

I can't believe better parking only came fifth in your list. I have been tirelessly posting for years about how the lack of parking at college hockey games is the one thing keeping it from being more popular than the Super Bowl and World Series combined.

Bigger rinks might hurt the sport in some area, if some causal hockey fan came to check out a college game and the rink was half empty wouldn't look any better than a smaller rink. Heck some schools can't fill small buildings why would they want to spend the money on bigger buildings. Lets remember too these are student athletes so more games isn't going to happen. Plus I don't know if I ever heard anyone say "I would love to be a fan of sport ____, but they just don't play enough games." More teams yeah that would be great, but for the time being lets see if we can keep the 59 we have going. Parking? Wth?

For now lets work on boobies, beer, nachos, and I would like to add fireworks.

Regarding the boobies, teams could have those hot girls that come out and scrape the ice during breaks in play.

What do you call a fish that opens its mouth and charges around aimlessly when nobody's trolling?

The White Whale
Or whatever ate that guy in the bibleThe "white whale" was named Moby Dick. He appeared in a book named, umm, Moby Dick, by Herman Melville. The "guy in the Bible" was named Jonah. He was swallowed by a "great fish" or "huge fish," depending on the translation. As you said, that's in the Bible, whose author you may have heard of: God.
