Dang. I was hoping they'd put ice back in here for an event game. Stay at the Wagon Wheel. 

Coached a few games there. Frickin dungeon. Lighting was terrible. If I remember right it had chain link fence for plexi glass.

I’d prefer we play these games in high school hockey hotbeds and use the game as a recruiting tool. Host recruits etc. 

But I have to agree that Nashville is a great town and well worth the trip for fans. Like a little Las Vegas.  

I’d never give a B10 program like PSU who is now focusing on hockey and backing it with cash the ability to tell recruits they get games and opponents like this.

Penn State likes to play a game at Wells Fargo Center, so them playing against UND at Nashville isn’t going to have that big of an impact on recruiting against UND.

Chicken wire.  The old barn.  Fog on the ice.

High school hockey hotbeds? High school hockey is pretty much only big in Minnesota. So I’m not sure where you would think we should be playing a destination game.

Just got back from Nashville, I’m in for this.  They need to bid on a Frozen Four and get one. ASAP.
