So we can once again have a team, other than the winner of the Frozen Four, win their last game.

I think that UNH, UVM, and Mack will be playing at least two fewer games next season. NU is keeping their senior goal scorer.

Thank Christ. Not everyone will get a participation ribbon. As it should be in this world.

When you consider that Hockey East had the Silver Domers take their ball and go home because they couldn't compete in this league... and now this 8-team tournament reversion; two of the more ridiculous changes in Hockey East have now been undone. All we need is for the NYR to hire Quinn and get Parker behind the BU bench and I'll be happy.

It was possible for LSSU, UAA, and ASU this season.

If you finish NINTH, you don't deserve a post-season. It is that simple.

ECAC won't do it unless RPI wins the league championship from a 9-12 spot. :p

...therefore bring here the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and be merry

Finally....a true playoff system. Should of stayed this way...no ifs or buts about it. Makes the regular season have a meaning again.

Good move!

Agreed. Now let's hope the rules committee doesn't come up with some crazy overtime format. I'm fine with ties and dislike the shootout. If anything increase the overtime to 7 minutes. I can't understand why the need to keep screwing around with the game.

I can't understand why the need to keep screwing around with the game.Right on...ties are part of the regular season play...deal with them {ties} and for sure NO SHOOT-OUTS....but instead of a 5 minute overtime...go to 10 minutes and then if tied then so be it. That's Hockey.
