    To be fair, Albany usually seemed to have the short end of the stick when it came to teams with fanbases that travel well. This year, you had local Clarkson (who travels well, regardless), and Cornell (who are arguably the best traveling fan base in the league).

    That said, from a fan experience, Lake Placid is always special. It's a destination, of sorts. They make the event feel important, and there's enough to do for free time. It always felt like an after-thought in Albany, IMO. The olympic sheet may not be ideal, but that is on a short list of "negatives" for Lake Placid, personally.

    I don't think the tournament is going anywhere anytime soon. The attendance figures have been solid and have continued to go up steadily every year. The arena seats less than half what the arena in Albany seats and is perfect for the turnout figures for the tournament, which have been pretty steady for more than the past 10 years. I think, as long as Lake Placid wants to continue to host the tournament, then it's theirs to keep. The commissioners statement of "I think ECAC hockey has finally found its home" seems to back this up.

    I think you were counting Fridays attendance twice. The total was slightly over 10,000 for the weekend.

    I really don't see the big surface as a negative. There is really nothing unfair about it in my opinion. I love watching teams play on it. I have a feeling it's not going anywhere anytime soon, but we will all see!

    Having been to Albany, Atlantic City and Lake Placid, I prefer Lake Placid hands down. Great place to hang and to watch a game. There is a lengthy previous thread on this subject somewhere on USCHO where many other northeast venues were spitballed and IIRC Lake Placid was the general consensus.

    You are correct there once I compared how they came up with previous numbers totals I seen they did the semis as one and not to separate games so this years numbers were 10,300 and that was with a storm that keep some fans away Friday.

    . I sure hope that you are right that the tournament is here for many years to come. I truly believe as well the ECAC has found a home there. My fear is just that I have heard a couple scernincos on what they were looking at doing with the tournament as far as moving it. With these rumors and no announcement during tournament weekend that they were coming back has me nervous. The last time there contract ran out for the 2014-2016 contract it was in the local paper the day after the tournament that they were return for 2017-2019 so lets hope they are returning.

    I think Lake Placid is a very good location. Albany is more practical and has more (and more reasonable) accommodations, but otherwise Lake Placid is a far more special place.

    From this article, the quote is actually this ...

    I couldn't see it until today, frustrating, you can see it now on the ECAC-NCAA thread. Post #22 by "Is There A Dog".

    Looked like a hit from behind by the Cornell player to me, and his knee got bent back. I think the whistle should have blown the play dead on Galadja's injury, he couldn't move. In another post the explanation given was the goal was still on it's pegs so you don't blow the whistle. Had nothing to do with the winning goal but caused Galadja to injure himself.

    Re: 2019 ECAC Championship Weekend in Lake Placid

    Hey everyone I heard this week that the reason we havenít heard anything on the ecac championship is that lake placid put into to have the regionals. I have been told if this is so and they get the bid that they are not allowed to have the conference championship as well. Does anyone know if that is true. Also werenít they suppose to announce the regionals this week for the next two years

    It was stated that they would be announced Thursday or Friday, so I guess we wait until tommorow. First I have heard about a Placid regional.

    A regional on an Olympic sheet? Would the NCAA even allow that?

    the ncaa rules give a minimuim rink size for tournament games along with a max size and the max size is the olympic sheet. Also remember people the difference between the two sheets is the olympic sheet is 15 feet longer

    Re: 2019 ECAC Championship Weekend in Lake Placid

    There are more differences than the width and length of the ice sheet, much more room behind the nets .

    International
    Hockey rinks in most of the world follow the International Ice Hockey Federation (IIHF) specifications, which are 60.0 by 30.0 metres (197 ft ◊ 98.4 ft) with a corner radius of 8.5 metres (28 ft).

    The two goal lines are 4.0 metres (13.1 ft) from the end boards, and the blue lines are 22.86 metres (75.0 ft) from the end boards.[2]

    North American
    Most North American rinks follow the National Hockey League (NHL) specifications of 200 by 85 feet (61 m ◊ 26 m) with a corner radius of 28 feet (8.5 m).[3] Each goal line is 11 feet (3.4 m) from the end boards. NHL blue lines are 75 feet (23 m) from the end boards and 50 feet (15 m) apart.[4]
