    On pace for 80....too close to the 70's for comfort.

    I will take this opportunity to give the NE goalie Frankel a big stick tap for the save of the year against Watts late in the game, going post to post and gloving a rocket shot off the pass at the back door by Watts. A finer save I challenge anyone to show me. Was Frankel on the National Team recently?

    Yes, made her debut vs Canada a couple weeks ago. Played in front of 5 or 6 thousand, played great and got a win.

    76. The Beavers were tough as usual. I predict this next week it will get worse and Watts will score no points.

    Add in five postseason games, and she is on pace for mid-80s. Or the Badgers could decide to slough enough games to finish second in the WCHA in order to play a league quarterfinal series and add a couple more games. No? It was worth a try.

    Actually Timothy A might be the one to say Yes to #2.

    IIRC, Tim's the guy who laments the 1st Round Bye when it goes the Badgers -- believing the weekend off is a disadvantage.

    I HATE THE FIRST ROUND BYE. It deprives me of 2 games to attend. I don't think it bothers the players or the coaches too much. The issue is this league needs an 8th team badly.

    As does the Men's Hockey B1G.

    If the University of Illinois actually does step up & add Men's & Women's D-1 teams, it could be a very nice solution all around. But we've waiting for that for... well, forever. And of course there's no guarantee that the Illini Women would join the WCHA. But we can hope.

    Would they look at the cha instead?

    The most likely candidate is the University of St Thomas when their athletic department moves up a division or two.

    They might. I could imagine them following Penn State's game plan. Short time as independents, then B1G for the Men's team & CHA for the Women's team.

    I'm sure that the CHA would be pleased to have them, and the travel wouldn't be that much more. Just mostly East, instead of mostly West.

    Good point. The St. Paul location would make them good geographic fit, and undoubtedly a popular choice.

    And just think. Gophers vs. Tommies: The Green Line War. Biggest thing since Millers vs. Saints.

    The men's team would not spend any time as an independent. It's a Big 10 rule that, if you play a varsity sport in which there is a conference league, you must play as a part of the conference. When Penn State started their team, men's hockey was not yet a Big 10 sport.

    Yeah, I suppose that's right. Penn State launched their program before B1G Hockey existed, which presumably gave them the independent option at the beginning.
    {EDIT: Which I now see you've added to your comment.}

    Still, it seems like a lose-lose situation to rigidly enforce that rule for a brand new program. Is it really in anyone's best interest if a team of mostly freshman goes 0-28 in their first year of conference play? You'd think a new program could be granted a year or two for incubation, in exchange for a binding commitment to join the league in Year 2 or 3.

    Fortunately in Women's Hockey there's more flexibility in this regard.
