  1. If I can watch it online, why do I care about it being on TV?  The issue has always been that the networks and leagues make it very difficult or expensive to watch online.  Perhaps this is a chance to embrace the fans and offer it online (with quality) for free?

  3. Free?  I think there is a better chance of Harvard or Colgate getting an at large bid to the NCAA than them putting it on for free.

  5. Yeah right…The ECAC do something for free?  That is funny as hell…The ECAC has turned into a joke….They moved the tourney as far away as possible…Even though St. Lawrence and Clarkson are not there, if it was in Lake Placid or even Albany, i would have deff went to all 4 games this year…I say it serves them right for moving it all the way to Atlantic City….The numbers don’t lie…The numbers were better in Lake Placid then they ever were in Albany or Atlantic City…The ECAC gets the use of the building for free in Atlantic City…So move it there to save a few bucks instead of making more bucks by keeping it closer to majority of the teams…When it was in Lake Placid, it was a nice setting and backdrop for the league, not to mention the history of the arena…

    • If you’re going to go that far South, put it in Philly. Part of me thinks that Glen Falls would work, or what about the Pru?

  7. Just one more speed bump on the way to obscurity.   Why are we discussing this now…….I would have thought these negotiations would have been done, wrapped up and held long ago?    Can it get much worse?  Holding a tournament in a place where no one will go save the few diehard fans from the schools.  I mean really, I love the ECAC but how irrelevant have we become.  Did you look at the Game 3 attendance figures last night for Colgate and Harvard?? 672 at Starr and 801 at Bright in one of the largest Metro areas in the conference in a game against an arch rival in Ylae.

  9. Honestly, the ECAC is just killing itself. I actually e-mailed Hagwell last season (I know, get a life) and he replied with a “for the alumni” type response. Don’t get me wrong, I was impressed he returned my e-mail, and felt he was very professional. I just don’t think he has a clue what is best for the league “hockey” wise. Whose to say I know any better, but I know one thing. There is NO WAY on earth I would ever place the ECAC final four in Atlantic City NJ!

    • As a person who went last year to AC….while the crowd was kind of sparse…it was an amazing time.  I never attended while it was anywhere else….AC is a destination.  It makes sense for alumni (my brother is one…I am just a fan).  They are hoping for them (alumni) to spend the weekend there….like we will again this year.  Now as far as St Pete…that makes little sense.

  11. This is ridiculous they should have never moved the ECAC final weekend out of Albany.  I went to Albany the last time it was held there and it looked packed.  People wanted to go there and besides who wants to drive 5 hours to that garbage dump of a state..No one.  How do they expect anyone to take the ECAC seriously when its run by a bunch of clowns who cant get their act straight enough to get a TV contract in order ahead of time.  This should be a wake up call, MOVE THE TOURNEY BACK UP NORTH WHERE IT BELONGS.  Im sure the five fans that travel to Atlantic City will enjoy the games but what about the rest of us that dont wanna pay hundreds of dollars in travel and tickets. Ridiculous. 

    • whadda ya mean ,they never should have moved outta albany  !!!!! it was an underhanded deal that albany got and albany isn’t up north LAKE PLACID is and that’s where it belongs end of story!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  13. The conference has really fallen in stature in so many ways. Putting the finals in AC for three-years was such a bad decision. It fails to build any new fan support, it is a hardship for the existing fan base to attend, it puts the crown jewel of the season in a setting where hockey doesn’t matter and in a bad building with a poor sheet. Who made this decision?

    The tourney needs to get back to Albany or Placid. Maybe a rotation is a feasible idea. In any event, some tradition needs to be created, as with Hockey East at the Garden

    •  You forgot to mention the officiating – forgetting completely the new rule about switching sides in OT (RPI vs Clarkson) is just an awful oversight, that’s not even a judgement-call based issue that is debatable! Now they can’t even secure a TV deal. Even AH has a TV deal!!!!!

    • The RIT Tigers have all of their home games televised on Time Warner Cable Sports and a fair number of other games are as well on the same channel including Niagara and Canisius. You can see Tiger games back in Albany often enough that I was surprised Time Warner was broadcasting RPI vs Union this past weekend.

  15. I haven’t missed a ECAC finals weekend since the last year in the (old) Boston Garden, but it’s highly unlikely I’ll go back to Atlantic City again.  Last year was the most depressing setting I’ve EVER seen for a finals!
    Albany wasn’t that great, but in comparison to AC, it was Nirvana.
    Lake Placid is just as long a drive (excepting Clarkson and StL.), but it always had a great atmosphere!

  17. If you can not get it back up to Lake Placid,  then get almost there and put it in the Glens Falls Civic Center.  It is a great hockey town.  Ask resident Mr. Barry Melrose why he never left.  Plenty of rooms, watering holes and restaurants.  The correct capacity for off campus hockey in roughly 5000 seats.  Within a 4 hour ride from every school in the conference.  Albany is a basketball town, and Lake Placid won’t please coaches with the big ice surface, but it would please the fans.

  19. A real shame. I know the commish was in touch with a number of TV outlets and producers. The cost of doing a game at Boardwalk Hall compared to Albany is much, much higher. The unions at Boardwalk Hall in AC are more expensive to deal with than MSG in NYC. That’s how bad it is down there.Still another year on the ECAC contract with AC, so don’t expect TV next year either.

  21. They should have made each session a package, like they did with the first 2 rounds. 10 bucks for both semis, 10 bucks for the consy and championship.

  23. Never should have left Boston.  Even if the ECAC was in the shadow of Hockey East you don’t get more attention in the middle of nowhere (Lake Placid) or a third tier city (Albany) or the most depressing place on the Atlantic Coast (Atlantic City).  At this point I say try the new arena in Brooklyn.

  25. You don’t just have something like this happen in the last couple of weeks.  This should have been set months or years ago.  Where is the planning and vision for the league.  ECAC is frequently looked down on and this is one of the reasons why.  Too bad my favorite school is part of ECAC.  Maybe it is time for some of the schools to find a new home, then the message might get through to the top.

  27. The internet video feed is decent, especially if you are outside the regional cable area.. most of the union games are only shown in the albany area, which is useless to fans elsewhere.

  29. Very unorganized by the ECAC, come on really all the other leagues will be televised.  What did ECAC do try to find a station this week???  Im a very big fan of the ECAC teams and enjoy the competitive hockey.  I just watched the High School championship game on tv.  ECAC get with the program….  Very disgusted….  BTW, move it back to Lake Placid, stop being greedy…..

  31. Attention ECAC league office, you made a mistake, it happens, no TV this year, but you at least have a chance to make it right (or at least accepted THIS YEAR)…write the check and make the webcast free, don’t make people pay to watch online what you should have put on television in the first place…you get one chance at a little love back from the fans before they all turn on you.

  33. Said it before, I’ll say it again – leaving Albany for AC was an epic mistake.  Not being on TV is even dumber.  If Hagwell had any self respect he would resign, as he’s made a complete mess of the ECAC’s premier event.

    • Absolutely! Hagwell has made a complete hash of his tenure as League president. Just look at all the league publications: High School Harry amateurish! The web site is unchanged for years and no one looking for up to date info on the league would consider using it. It’s a joke! No TV is a failure of colossal proportions! No regular season trophy presentation to the champions by the league is disgraceful! Having our premier league event in a city south of ALL the league teams is just STUPID! This man is responsible for deterioration of our iconic league and he must GO!

  35. Absolutely pitiful…As already pointed out, why this revelation just days before the tournament? With four of the country’s finest academic institutions participating, the hackneyed term “scholar-athlete” is not an oxymoron in this case. National TV exposure of the ECAC would be a perfect occasion to showcase what is right about college athletics. How in the world can this dereliction of Hagwell’s be tolerated?
    TV not withstanding, Atlantic City was an equally pituful choice as a venue. It is overpriced, unattractive, and only accessible with great effort. Maybe the ECAC coaches will will bring the powers to be to their senses in choosing a more attractive site. The short shrift received by the ECAC on a general basis is very undeserved. There is too much to be proud of.

  37. Wonder if they if even thought of reaching out to YES Network or SNY, two regional sports network with national reach via satellite.

  39. Just another example of the ineptness and idocy of Commissioner Hagwell and all the Commissioners.  College hockey needs to throw the current group of Commissioners out before they run college hockey further into the ground.  This is just an embarassment.

  41. This is disgusting.  Im a huge Union Fan and am unwilling to make the 5 hour trip to the S hole that is Atlantic City and now they arent even going to show the games on telelvision. This makes me sick that if Union is able to win its first ever ECAC Championship I wont even be able to see it happen and maybe ill get a chance to hear it on the radio.  This isnt just about U, this is about the constant screw ups by the people in charge and this should be a wake up call.. And to have the nerve to charge people to see the games is sickening.  The ECAC should be paying for it and  making it avaialable to every one.  So Terrible FIRE HAGWELL and return the tourney up north
