Hi. No restaurant

Uh... that's a problem that can be fixed by walking about 200 feet.

Do you guys think the ECAC would go with a three city rotation of Albany, Providence and Lake Placid?I think developing a tradition of going to a particular site adds to the experience. I hated Albany at first but it became a lot of fun after several years of finding fun things to do. So no, I do not think a rotation would be beneficial, but it's an interesting idea and thank you for suggesting it.

If the ECAC wants to try something "radical" in their tournament scheduling I would suggest either: (1) split the SF and F into best-of-three series at the top seed's buildings, or (2) hold the tournament at MSG. Otherwise, I would suggest going back to the geographically logical site, Albany.

No data or inside information either, but I have a hard time believing that RPI comes close to breaking even, even if scholarships aren't included. They are usually shown as breaking even when listings are posted on line, but it is always a question of what is included.

I do think that RPI (and Cornell too) would make money on men's hockey if the added income of donations by alumni and others due to hockey is quantified.My understanding of the Cornell situation is it comes down to how you assign facility costs -- offloading costs for rink operations onto "common" makes hockey profitable, and it's arguably valid since the rink is also used for physical education and as a public facility. To the extent that they roll up into the hockey budget, the program becomes a money pit.
