I know anything can happen but I would be amazed if UNB didn't advance to the final coming out of this pool.

Definitely going to catch X v McGill on Thursday too.

Anyone know what the three fingers mean in the Team AUS picture? Does it mean '3 more wins'?

(feel free to check my math)

Notes: The host team has won 2 titles; Alberta twice. USask missed 3 finals, GLP/WAT missed the finals twice, UNB made one final of two, ALB was two for two, UdeM made it to one final of two, LKD missed the finals twice.

The host team is 2/13 (.153)

The afternoon Pool has gone on to win 10 of 13.

Of the different combination's of games, the winner has done the following:
3 straight six times
1-2 split six times
2-1 split once (ALB in Moncton)

Eric said...

Correction: Afternoon winners are 9/13.

Over the past 14 years, 16 teams have finished with the lowest Goals-Against.
- 14 of 16 teams advanced to Nationals.
- 4 of 16 teams advanced to the Gold Game (.250)
- 3 of 16 teams won gold (.187)

The two teams not to advance: UNB last year (56 GA) and McGill in 2005 (54 GA)

The Champions were Guelph in 1997 (63 GA), UQTR in 2001 (46 GA) and UWO in 2002 (35 GA).

David Kilfoil said...

As far as I know they are still only selling packages.

When were the powers that be going to inform us that there's a $2 parking fee at the AUC this weekend? A lot of people will be upset, especially with no warning.

David Kilfoil said...

What do you mean? They put an ad in today's paper!

:-)

The money goes to varsity athletics, so it is a good cause.

And it is only a toonie.

Is it a $2 fee per game or just for the whole weekend???

I agree it's a good cause but very very last minute..

$2 fee for the weekend I have no problem with..$2 fee per game is like an extra $14-$16 for the weekend which today is like 1/4 of a tank of gas

Let's get STUTommies to collect the money and give it to the SMU womens hockey team.

Maybe another poem might help the situation.

About the parking - is is $2.00 per game? Not all of us get the paper.

Ok so check this out, I just called the aitken centre box office and spoke with Vicky and asked her about the $2 parking fee

When I asked if it was $2 per day she said "I think so" and when I asked if I pay the parking attendant she said and I quote "I guess so".

Which translates to does anybody know what is going on? Oh by the way this is what happens when decisions are made last minute

Parking on UNB campus??? That's why I walk.

This will pose a bit of a problem I would expect with some people who do not want to pay this fee. Also, how are the 5 or 6 parking attendants going to keep track of about 1500-2000 cars per game. I can't see this working out to well and I for one don't wanna pay. But if ya have to it will be worth the money to watch the best hockey around. I'm all for UNB going all the way and really hope they win nationals but damn they know how to squeeze an extra couple dollars out of everyone for a lot of events.

really,thats how much gas is going up,drop the parking fees so i can pay for gas to get there....

More money, please! said...

These guys never cease to amaze. Not a peep about any parking fee until the very last minute, and now we don't know if it's per game, per day, for the tournament, for next year, for the next century. Come on you guys, get out of the ivory tower and join the real world for a couple of days anyway. And like the previous post says, how are they going to police this? Are they going to have CP going window to window to collect, or what? Are they going to date off every entrance and exit? Heaven forbid somebody have a heart attack and have to make a quick exit. UNB runs a good hockey program and all that for sure, but some of the side stuff literally makes your head shake.
