    A better educated population would never have elected this goober in this first place. Alaska unfortunately has more than its share of anti-gubment end-of-the-roaders who get all of their news from Facebook memes.

    All this makes me kind of ashamed to work in oil and gas. Never have worked in Alaska (almost did for Haliburton but didn’t—would have been cool but I’m probably better off not having done it). Liberal extremism is idealism and a distorted sense of reality, conservative extremism is plain greed in these circumstances.

    joe bertagna as interim commissioner for the newnewWCHA/newCCHA/____ to the get the magnificent seven going like he did for HEA?

    he said he is stepping down... not retiring.

    Hard pass. They need someone proactive who is in the geographic area. He’s neither of those things.

    He might have been proactive 20 years ago, but I certainly wouldn't use that adjective to describe him now.

    He's also very much a New England/northeast guy.

    Bertagna will remain the Executive Director of the American Hockey Coaches Association, a position he has held since 1991, when the AHCA was first created. Bertagna recently agreed to an extension to serve that role through the 2022-23 season.

    Idea for students at schools hosting NGSC (yeah, let’s roll with it) teams in non-con games this year:

    “Let’s Go Seawolves/Nanooks/Chargers” chants.

    Re: New WCHA is dead

    in regard to the possible formation of a newnewWCHA;

    could RIT be considered as an eight member joining the magnificent seven?

    RIT is much closer to BGSU then UAH. and its about the same for BSU (the furthest team from UAH) to travel to either.

    and that way too AHA also goes to an even number of 10 members - or maybe RIT and UAH just trade places.

    RIT's coach is a BGSU alum...

    and conceivably, as far as names go, you have all member schools in states that have a shore on one (or two or three or four) of the great lakes;

    GLHA - Great Lakes Hockey Association

    RIT would still be a very long trip for most of the teams in the newWCHA, especially those furthest west. Why not just make UAH the 8th team?

    because UAH is further then RIT for five of the magnificent seven...

    only BSU and MNSU would have to travel more; BSU 14 miles further and MNSU 86 miles further (if talking best bus-route miles)

    not to mention having the option of much, much better flights in buffalo, rochester, and syracuse.
