Excellent finds, Freaked.

It seems right now a lot of things are being put in place.
Major shifting could take place in a very short time span, following Notre Dame's announcement (whenever that happens).

As soon as Notre Dame announces they are bolting the CCHA, the CCHA is down to 5.
If Western Michigan goes with Notre Dame, it is down to 4. Hopefully they both choose the NCHC, rather than disrupting the eastern leagues.

Next move, UAF goes from CCHA to WCHA. CCHA is OK with that.

LSSU may apply to WCHA. It seems WCHA would be happier with 8, that allows for travel pairs, and with 2 Alaska teams,
the WCHA definitely wants to be paired up, so 2 teams can go to Alaska at one time, and accomplish 2 at UAA and 2 at UAF in a single trip.

Regardless of what LSSU does, CCHA will then invite the 4 AHA teams.
I imagine they will say YES, otherwise they could have nipped the whole conversation in the bud, after the meeting a few weeks ago.E
If not the CCHA is kaput, remaining schools will ask to be absorbed into WCHA.

Finally, if CCHA winds up at about 6, and AHA is reduced to 8, one of these conferences may actually invite Alabama-Huntsville.
Nobody is talking to them yet, but the various conferences are aware that at the end of the day, they are ripe for the picking.

So right now, IT WOULD APPEAR that the wheels are being greased for the UAF more and the 4 AHA team move.
McLeod's meeting withe the CCHA principals probably covered 2 major topics:
1) CCHA's aquiescence to the UAF move, and
2) contingency planning if the AHA move doesn't materialize, and the CCHA folds.
