Those at or watching the Regionals, if you could post your "guesstimates" as to how many are at each of the games this weekend, I am sure many would like to know.

From the looks of two games I saw not enough to screw with bracket integrity.

Manchester has a very good showing. Appears to be just a few empty seats in the corners. Manchester should do well on Saturday also, no matter who wins the night cap. Full house if it's Lowell/UNH.
I watched the Minny and NoDak games as well... looked like lots of empty seats.

I do not know why the games were so early. Minnesota/Yale game should started at 5:00 ET and North Dakota/ Niagara should started at 9:30 ET.

So the Gophers lost the game because they were forced to play during naptime or something?

The #1 problem is ridiculous ticket prices and forcing people to buy two day packages. And if you want to attract neutral locals, don't start at 2 pm on friday.

And if college hockey gets miniscule tv numbers, why are they so concerned with staggering games?

Or because this is the attendance thread they could be talking about why attendance was so low...

You're right, that is a possibility. But it doesn't seem to be a likely one.

If tihe NCAA continues to have regional games at neutral sites, attendance is quite predictiable. We've had the Frozen Four at Joe louis Arena a couple of times and, if there is no Michign teams in the event, you
can file a musket off and it will echo like hell. They can't have it both ways.

I think it would have help having some local people attend plus the fanbase would have to take a full day of work off. Example N. Dakota fans could worked a half day or something and flown out. I am guessing most fans did a red eye flight or flew in Thursday.
