You want answers?!?!

It's been too long. ... Let's do a You Want Answers?!?! Q&A. ... You know the drill: Go to the comments section of this post and drop me a questions about MSU hockey (or anything, really — seriously, where's the creativity?), and I'll answer them in a post on Thursday afternoon.

What do you think about the report in the Fairbanks Daily News-Miner about the "new" WCHA's 28-game schedule factoring in travel to Alaska, and the possibilities of a 10th school being added (Alabama-Huntsville and three currently non-existing programs in Moorhead, Iowa State and Green Bay)?

If the state bonding bill passes, what exactly will we be able to expect for the Civic Center improvements? They kind of outlined it, but I am not sure what they mean. How will it change to the look of the main part, and what will happen with the practice rink?

Another question - are you getting the feeling there is any 'buyer's remorse' from the NCHC teams and their media outlets? I think you have brought up many valid points about how this didn't seem to be a needed thing for any of those teams. In fact, I don't see if it is supposed to cost more to be in this other league how SCSU will be able to support the football team that almost ended last year, taking them potentially out of the NSIC in the other sports. That would be a sad loss of a rivalry for MSU.

1) Do you think Hayes will return to MSU for his senior year? I know it has been said that NHL clubs have taken notice of him as a free agent, but it seems like he's been having a bit of a quiet year, save for this past weekend.

2) Are you surprised with Tyler Pitlick's lack of success (at least scoring-wise) for the AHL's OKC Barons this season? I thought for sure it was only a matter of time before he cracked the Oilers line-up after he signed his pro deal. Now I have no clue how it's all going to work out for him.

1)There's been a lot of rumors about who started up the NCHC, with most centered around UND and Denver. Is there any truth to this rumor and if not, who did decide to startup the conference and pick which schools to invite? Also, what have they meant by 'Like-minded Institutions'?

2)Do you think the Mavs have a realistic shot at finishing above their current 11th place this year? The next 3 weekends seem to be their best shot at getting out of the bottom.

Couple quick questions regarding the Conference realignment.
1. Did you catch the interview of Denvers Coach from Moose on CHT? If not, i recommend listening. He put him on the hot seat about "like minded institutes" and as usual, no answers where given.
2. Is anything happening in regards to the new WCHA?? it seems like the silence is deafening as to what direction they are going. I would hope that we leave Bruce Mcloud in Denver and relocate the offices with a new commissioner in either MN or MI.
3. Lastly, whats you opinion on an over/under in years before Miami and Western Michigan realize they made a mistake adding all this travel with little or no gain in attendance at home to offset it? I'm saying 6 years.
