This jerk wants the finals on the East Coast or MSP!
Meant in general. The only options are the 3 cities named and the Target Center in Minneapolis (if that counts separately). It might be possibly 2 since Milwaukee hasn't hosted a regional in ages (not even sure if the Bradley Center is interested anymore). This was the first tournament since 2008 where the Twin Cities didn't host games in one way or another. Compared to New England, where there are a half-dozen mid-sized cities to rotate between, and NCAA trying to cut down on Olympic/campus sites, having half the options of a major college hockey area be in one city is pathetic.
But this is about the AHL and Houston moving.
