Suddenly it doesn’t seem so objective…

Lots of outstanding hockey last night, including a bunch of upsets. If you haven’t taken a look at CHN’s Tourney Watch be sure to take a look and catch up what happened around the league.

As many of us are doing, we head straight over to the Pairwise to see what’s going on. Who is in, who is out.

Most of the hockey world has been basing their PWR on the assumption that there will be a PWR bonus of .003 added for quality road wins. Here’s where things is frighteningly scary.. a PWR bonus of .002 will leave drastically switch things up thanks to Niagara perilously leaving on the edge of the TUC Cliff, which could effect a lot of seedings and some NCAA berths. Lets how for controversy’s sake they choose a nice round number like 0.0025… that way everyone can scream when they find out Niagara would become a TUC at 0.0026…

If there was no bonus, and no upset champions:
Last two in: UMass, St. Lawrence
Last two out: Maine, Michigan Tech

If there was a .003 bonus, and no upset champions:
Last two in: UMass, Michigan State
Last two out: Michigan Tech, St. Lawrence
*Niagara now a TUC

If there was a .002 bonus, and no upset champions:
Last two in: Denver, UMass
Last two out: St. Lawrence, Michigan Tech
*Niagara no longer a TUC
