Philadelphia a Finalist for Frozen Four

Along with the draft and ASG that we're apparently pushing for, we've been named a finalist for the 2013 and 2014 Frozen Fours.

Four Finalists: Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Boston, St. Louis


Having seen the Frozen Four in DC, I approve. This would be fun to watch.

Pittsburgh and St. Louis make little sense.

St. Louis would be an easy travel for Minnnesotans and Michiganers, as well as Ohioans. If anything, Pittsburgh and Philly are the two oddballs of this list. As PA doesn't have any D1 programs I don't think.

However, there was an article on THN today about the NCAA wanting to promote D1 hockey in CA and PA.

Anyone have guesses on what the price range would be for tickets if they were here?

Also, it seems a little funny to me that there is a press release about "finalist" cities for the Frozen Four. I mean, hey...the Frozen Four is great and everything...but we're not talking about the Olympics here. Just pick a city and announce it.

They should, PA has 2 NHL franchises and interest in the sport could increase if promoted more. There are a fair share of rinks around here now and it gets awfully cold in the wintertime. Perfect recipe for hockey if promoted more. My high school won some local hockey tournament recently. People are playing.

Anyway, my question was are there even any D1 programs in this state?

PSU should jump on this. As should a few other of the big PA schools - Temple, Pitt, ect.

For being such a big school, why does Temple athletics BLOW so much?

Robert Morris University just outside of Pittsburgh has a D-1 hockey program (only 5 years old or so I believe)

Penn State does have one of the best D-1 club teams in the country

Well there you go. PSU should be D-1.

Either way, one of the Philly schools should get involved with this, and try to get the Flyers to help promote it.

Temple?

All big schools in major Mid-Atlantic and New England cities blow at sports. The geography permits only basketball (and sometimes hockey) to have world-class facilities.

Malvern, O'Hara, and LaSalle take hockey more seriously than Temple does.

If Philly gets it and I hope they do I would recomend going. The atmosphere for college hockey is awesome. There really is nothing like it. I went last year in Manchester and saw some great hockey. 2 of the 3 were classics.

That's a PROBLEM.

Haha. O'Hara PRIDE!

How does a school of 2,000 kids take hockey more seriously then a school with almost 30,000 undergrads?

This would be AWESOME. If Miami makes the Frozen Four again I can go home and actually see it live! How badass would that be?

Mercyhurst is D1 and in PA. It wouldn't be a long shot for it to be in PA at all, hell, it was in DC last year.

Penn state would like to go D1, however the Bryce Jordan center would need to have an iceplant installed, the existing rink is tiny. Not to mention Title 9, the womens team is awful. When girls on the same line break up they stop passing to each other. (according to the straight girl i knew on the team) The club team is also in a good spot, they get gear from nike, and kinda recruit which is more than other teams at their level can do. Though it would be cool to see them play their Big10 football rivals in hockey.

It would be awesome, college hockey has the best chants. I'd so go.

Title 9 has been keeping that program off D1 for quite some time. I recall a report from some time ago that ice was an option (at minimal additional cost) when BJC was being built, but seeing as they couldn't promote the team to D1, the maintenance costs for the unused ice was not worth it. Now-days, it would be a major fundraising campaign to afford the cost of retro-fitting BJC.

This is AMAZING news. I was also at the Frozen Four in DC to watch my beloved BU take care of Miami in OT. Still the greatest game I have ever witnessed. I would love to see it here. It would be fantastic for fans who dont get to see some NCAA talent.

If we get the Frozen Four AND the draft in the same year, that will be so great, at least from my perspective. I could care less about the ASG, what a crock of crap.

They tried to get it the last time the NCAA were given them out. They weren't happy that they were passed over for Tampa Bay.

I can tell you're not much of a college hockey follower.

It was just in St. Louis a few years ago.

Pittsburgh makes a lot more sense just based on where they're located let alone having a new building. They're much closer to teams in the midwest.
