After St. Paul, Buffalo, Detroit, next year Pittsburgh (which was a nice surprise and a fun city) then Boston, let's hope we get a wild card like Nashville, or Vegas along with Tampa in the next group. Early April in Midwest and Northeast does not equate to fun outdoor activities.
    Apparently the Lightning do not want the Frozen Four anymore because it forces them to play the final week of the NHL season on the road, when they may be fighting for a playoff spot/seeding.

    Too bad. Loved both trips to Tampa.

    Also agree. I traveled to both Tampa FFs, and and likewise had great times.

    HOWEVER: Everyone who cares about the event was extremely fortunate that North Dakota qualified the second time around. Without the best traveling fan base in college hockey, in-house attendance would have been embarrassingly bad. Have to believe that's another factor in the decision.

    Basically we went back to Tampa too soon. Without the novelty factor, neutral fans won't travel in sufficient numbers to fill the building at a non-traditional site. I'm proud to be part of the Frozen Four fanbase. But for the most part, we're a budget-conscious group. IMHO, more years will have to go by before Tampa is financially viable again, regardless of the Lightning's preferences.

    On a somewhat related note, does anyone remember when tickets for the regionals typically go on sale?

    Yes I do! They should do that again so any team that make it to the Final Four need to get ahold of some reserved tickets held for once!
