Re: Divsion 2 bids questionable?
Drexel suffers a bit because they had to play WCU and Neumann 4x; Temple looked outclassed by a 12 seed in the playoffs. As an adverse party (I hate everyone in ECRHA DII equally!) I'd say that there were five tiers in the ECRHA: Neumann, WCU/Albany/Ship, Maine, Temple/Drexel/SRU/Bingo/Cornell/Vermont/MVille/Brockport (in no particular order), and then Scranton/Ramapo/Briarcliffe. The level of differentiation between tiers was minimal (teams came very close to beating Albany all year, teams did in fact beat Ship, and Maine tied, lost, or came very close to losing to teams they really shouldn't have given their seed) but there was a noticeable drop-off after Maine. As a guy who wants the ECRHA to send teams that are strong candidates for top 8 teams, I have no trouble sending 4 very strong teams as well as a team that cut things closer than they should while being strong rather than send a team that is demonstrably weaker. Sorry, Drexel and Temple.
