I wonder if you even realoze that HC does play some games at the DCU center which by the way is not on their campus, but its ok for them because they arent UConn who you hate. 

All in all Still irrelevant but thanks for putting something hockey in this ridiculous thread

Holy Cross isn't joining HE because they'd get their doors blown off every night. But you can't say that so you say stuff like.  

"Look how strict these rules are!!!"

Meanwhile more than half of the teams don't follow all "rules" including UConn

 

So Commissioner THHF please tell us with your infinite wisdom when will UConn be kicked out of HE, do tell oh great one 

 

Get yer popcorn ready, lol

Those bylaws are now almost 4 years old.  And, as everybody knows, Notre Dame is no longer a conference member.

In short...it's certainly possible, if not likely, that the HE bylaws have been amended.  

But, at least you provided some evidence.  The bad news is you're still wrong since those bylaws are 3+ years old.

I wouldn't be so sure about that. Holy Cross has had far more success in the Atlantic Hockey Conference than UConn ever did. I could see them being pretty competitive fairly quickly.
