    A little sad, but not surprising. New people coming in, and no defensemen leaving, is bad news for guys who essentially didn't play last year (Zero games for Bigelbach and 4 for Zalambos). Not sure on Furry, but he just turned 21, so he can't go back to the USHL.

    If this new league imposed stiff exit fees like the NCHC did, that would make it far more difficult for MSU to leave. As for “trading” for Miami or Western Michigan, that’s nothing more than fan speculation.

    I’m just passing along information from the most trusted source I have within the program. WMU and particularly Andy Murray don’t want to leave the NCHC and enjoy being a member of the conference.

    I can tell you Chris Bergeron would prefer to get Miami into the WCHA for part of the reasons I mentioned, but getting administration on board is a hurdle (as it was for Blasi as well).

    Ultimately, the conversation I had led me to believe that the NCHC would stay at 8 teams, and if the Mavs get the invitation, it would be in a scenario Miami leaves, not at addition to 9 or 10 NCHC teams.

    If there is a sizable exit penalty, I wouldn't expect MSU to join the new Mercury 7.

    We all thought that at the start of last year, but in the player intro video, he called himself a junior.

    Which is why MSU has been transparent with their long term goal or what they’d do if the NCHC asked them to join.

    Personally I think it would make much more sense for these 7 to join with NCHC and create 1 conference with a great lakes and Western conf. That would eliminate 1 auto bid and for some NCHC teams on the bubble that would be appealing. But at this point who knows. I think the 7 team league is a good move although I really don't like doing to UAA, UAF and UAH what the NCHC did to us. We shall see what they do with name and logo, scheduling too. Im not sure on the rules but will the smaller conference allow for more non conference games?
