It doesn't. NOBODY outside of diehard college hockey fans noticed that the whole conf structure of chk changed.
And you act like history was deleted and started over at the start of the NCHC and the B1G. How convenient that would be for the NCHC.
Since the NCHC was SO FAR BEHIND THE B1G to start out.
But that is not reality, reality is that history happened, the past DID exist.
And in the present, 3 B1G teams made the FF, only 1 NCHC team has.
