  1. No secret in past seasons that Paula hasn’t liked the GLI- be it the terrible press facilities, half empty arena or spotty brand of hockey. BUT, I have to agree that this tourney was pretty compelling and the attendance was solid- especially with the championship match-up. Last year wasn’t bad with CC there, either. 

    As far as the rumors about the GLI- This is still Tech’s tourney. Michigan and MSU think this is a very important part of their schedule and will have plenty of non conference space to accomodate it once in the B1G conference. Besides, it will give the non-Yost Michigan fans and the Spartan fans in the metro area a chance to see both teams since the B1G Ten Tournament will most likely move away from Detroit. Finding a fourth team has never been a problem. The biggest question mark is the reduced tv coverage which has been disappointing.  

    • The TV coverage was VERY disappointing.  I do wonder how the new Big Ten will factor into this.  

      I also wonder where the Big Ten championship tournament will be held.  Haven’t heard yet.

  2. “LSSU rebounded with a win over Vermont after losing to RIT.”Actually, LSSU beat Vermont and then “rebounded” by losing to RIT.

  3. I have followed the GLI since my sophomore season at MSU  in 1967.It is thee Holiday College tournament.It’s longevity and attendance is second to none.The other 5 holiday tourneys this past week drew a total of 22,600 for their Championship night.T that is an average of a little over 4500.I have seen every minute of every game during  3 out of the past 4 years.Coach MacInnis of Michigan Tech stated this tournament in 1965 to showcase the great game of college hockey,and nobody does it better than THE JOE at the GLI.My dad and I travel 420 mi from Peoria, Il. to Detroit to attend this tournament,and we will continue to do it each year.I would like to see Western Michigan be the 4th team in 2 years.That would give you 2 Big  Tens,a WCHA,AND a National team for the 2013 GLI.Mike Olson,MSU 1966-1970.
