I wanted to start a general discussion about the influence the NHL has on college hockey. Recently, the NHL has sponsored feasibility studies for U. of Illinois and Oakland, (MI) University. This got me thinking to who are the other schools involved. I've heard Pitt with assistance from the Penguins. U. of Buffalo working with the Sabres. Also, with the writing on the wall for a Seattle franchise, will U. of Washington look to upgrade their program? What about UNLV with the success of the Golden Knights?
