I don't mind them as a second OT, but completely scrapping the normal 5x5x5 OT bothers me a bit.

Agree, I really liked the way they had it.   UND is traditionally a 5 on 5 kind of team, so it suits us well.  That said, with guys like JBD, Sanderson, Kiersted, Miller, Moore, and Bast, on defense and guys like Kawaguchi, Adams, Pinto, Mismash etc. you have got to like our ability to control the puck in a 3 on 3 situation much better than a few years ago.

They seem to be more worried about the length of the games than anything else. Otherwise extending the 5 on 5 OT to 10 minutes would have been better.

I have been calling for that for years.

I'll be interested to see the power rankings implications and how this will be incorporated.  I've always thought getting no "credit" for a 5x5 OT loss was a bit unfair.

Are the games going to be played with no fans, just student fans, season ticket holder only fans, or normal capacity amount of fans? Will Nashville happen? Somebody must have an idea to this coming season's game plans. I know that Chaves said that they are going ahead as scheduled, but I haven't heard at what capacity of fans will be allowed to attend.

Until they announce otherwise, everything is planned to go ahead as normal.

I believe that they have stated that they will not (or at least don't want to) make a decision on Nashville until closer to fall.

I thought Illinois was ready to announce that they would start up hockey.  Would guess they could find another one or two besides them eventually.  UND would have to have assurances that if charter members take up hockey they wouldn’t be the odd man out.

Not sure if this is addressed elsewhere and I just missed it, but the Gophers are pushing for Big Joke expansion again.

Is the big ten tv going to pay und more than midco is? If no I’m having a tough time understanding how this would be good for und considering both the NCHC exit fee and how this would negatively affect the teams left in the NCHC

IMO it comes down to getting enough money to support the other Athletic programs at UND.  Most other D1 programs do this with their Football program.  At UND we need to do this with our Hockey Program.  If they get a Butt load of money and assurance they will not get kicked out once Illinois joins I say go for it.  Otherwise stay in the NCHC.

Personally I would be shocked if they would offer a bunch of money to join as the Big Ten is too argent and could care less about hockey.

First off, neither actually needs each other. If given the opportunity and the $ was right, UND would jump at the opportunity.
