    Quinnipiac doesn’t offer much beyond a nice facility.  They are a middling school with a middling ECAC hockey program.  They have made it past the ECAC quarters one time in their 6 years in the league.  They did not win Atlantic Hockey in either of their years there.  HC not only made it to the NCAAs 5 years ago but stunned Minnesota in the first round.  All the problems with HC’s potential membership can be addressed with funding.  Whether HC will make the commitment remains to be seen.  The problems with the other schools (primarily geography) can’t be fixed at all.  If HC makes the commitment, they are the choice.
