    That was never the intention. The intention was ALWAYS to make a ton of money and keep that money in the conference.

    The CCHA was a great league and had really short travel distance for so many of the games .

    MTU should have stayed in the CCHA. Moot point now, thank God.
    No doubt the schools to have benefited from the new WCHA are Mankato, Tech, Bemidji and BG. Everyone else is a wash at this point or is worse off from realignment.

    Yeah but that's not how it works. Teams are paying to go to Alaska twice in once season. This is not sustainable.

    NMU has not benefited from realignment.

    Yes. "The old ways are the best ways."

    But I miss the 17-team, 3 division ECAC, so what do I know?

    I miss the WCHA. Especially the always good time the Final Five.

    Absolutely! I've yet to hear one valid argument making the case on how the re-alignment benefited college hockey in any way shape or form.

    I miss some of the teams from the old WCHA but I prefer the current tournament over the Final Five. I was at both on-campus championship games and you'll never match the atmosphere at an oversized neutral site venue.

    I think there was at least one benefit. I believe conferences were getting too big. The WCHA, for instance, in recent years had expanded to 12 teams, and that's just too many imho. I would really like to see hockey conferences no greater than maybe 8 teams in size. You can still play plenty of conference games but leave yourself with a relevant number of out of conference games.

    We went from five automatic qualifiers to six with re-alignment, and I think that was a good thing. I think we could use even a bit more of it, maybe forming another eastern conference out of some of the teams from HEA, the ECAC and Atlantic hockey.
    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

    We shall agree to disagree. The Final Five to me was right behind the Frozen Four for entertainment on and off the ice.

    I love 12. If the Ivies would move to 10 NC I'd be content for life. In my opinion that is the optimal schedule.
