  1. If Wisconsin and Minnesota think making and moving to a Big 10 conference is going to help them recruit, they’re nuts. In the Midwest we play hockey the way it was meant to be. The way real hockey players play. The Canadian way!!! Hard hitting, fast moving hockey. Not that “basketball mom” hockey played out east where if you check a guy the mom’s start crying and the refs need oxygen between periods from blowing their whistle every time one of the mommy boys gets checked. :)

    • H4rm,
      You sound jealous. :) Dissing eastern hockey makes no sense. The last three champs are from Boston, and the last midwestern team to win (Mich. St.) was lucky to beat Boston College. Matter of fact, starting in ’97, a Hockey East team has been in every championship game except 2005 (DU beat N.Dak).

    • Really bro ?sounds like an eastern team destroyed one of your little teams as a child both physically and on the scoreboard…no need to diss eastern hockey when its just as good if not better than midwest..

  2. Yay BT Hockey! As a Michigan fan I’m really excited and I think the other leagues (WCHA, CCHA) will be just fine. The WCHA is ultra deep and has a number of great teams and tradition. And the CCHA has Miami and ND to hold down the fort until some other programs step up. Let’s not forget that NMU, LSSU, etc have great hockey tradition and have won championships.

    • I could see some of the ex-WCHA teams in the CCHA leave for the WCHA when the Big Ten conference starts. I like Coach Jackson’s (Notre Dame) idea of combining the CCHA and WCHA into one big conference. Then break the conference into sub-groups of 6. One of the 4 groups would consist of the Big Ten schools (UMTC, UW, UM, MSU, OSU, PSU)

  3. Not to sure I am a fan of a Bit Ten hockey conference. Are you going to play with only 6 teams in the conference? pretty sure that’s the number of bt schools with hockey. mich, mn, wi, mich st, o st, and soon penn st. Why take great teams away from two conferences just to form another and add another auto bid. better to have Penn St. join HE or CCHA maybe AHA. Just my opinion.

  4. H4rm, the tier 1 Boston leagues pulled out of USA Hockey I thought so that they could check earlier. I’ve seen mite checking games, my mite participated in a tourney with checking. ‘Nuff said.

  5. Everyone knows that there will be a Big Ten hockey conference. The question is when and if any more non hockey B10 schools step up to Div 1. WCHA will be fine with DU, CC, UND, Neb-Om, Alaska,MT, BSU, Duluth and MN State. If they add Fairbanks and Air Force, they will be set and survive nicely. THe CCHA will finally need to add UAH, which they never should have denied in the first place.

  6. Anyone know if Illinois is considering moving up to D1 hockey? Especially with the news that a Big10 conference would be formed.

  7. What about Ill, Iowa, and Prudue step out of the shadows of club sport and into the big leagues. Even if the Big Ten helps out with loans to get the clubs into Div 1.
