Good news, it appears the B10 May start up their season in October. The NHL is living in a bubble in Toronto and Edmonton. You leave th...

Re: LIU -D1 Hockey/ Saint Thomas to CCHA

A new 5,000 seat arena for a D2 basketball venue? I agree, a total misappropriation of funds while the hockey program was struggling ... Millsy, what do you think the probability is of the AHA extending an invite to UAH? I don't think the chances are good. UAH is out of the AHA footprint, and unles...

Re: LIU -D1 Hockey/ Saint Thomas to CCHA

It’s a sad day when college hockey loses a program due to budget constraints. Fairbanks will have to continue as an Indy program after the WCHA disbanded and formed the new CCHA. As for UAH, they will have to continue the Indy path after the upcoming season unless the AHA decides to bail them out. ...

Re: LIU -D1 Hockey/ Saint Thomas to CCHA
