NEHC playoff structure
« on: February 12, 2017, 08:48:08 am »
Very worried about Norwich losing momentum due to lack of games. They only played one game this past weekend, now they have a bye, and the NEHC semi and final are played on two separate weekends. If they win out and get another bye into an NCAA QF, it would only be their fourth game in five weeks. Very hard to remain in game form over a span like that.

Back in the interlock and the 11/1 start-date, two-game weekends went past Valentine's Day, the league final four happened on one weekend, and the NCAA first round games were on that first Wednesday. I liked it when the hockey was packed in, allowing players to keep the routine going.

So far, so good. through the Castleton tussle.
