I'm worried that without the creation of more B1G hockey teams (which won't happen quickly), hockey in the Big Ten is going to take a step backwards compared to where we were. Conference challenges will certainly keep things interesting/competitive for awhile, but how long can the B1G be considered a 3rd tier hockey conference without hurting the participating programs? 

If the Big Ten is serious about college hockey, it needs to add two new schools every 3 or 4 years, and have a plan for those on-deck.

I don't know that that will be the case because of the four power teams in the Big Ten -- Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan and Michigan State. You're still talking about four of the premier schools in the country along with BU, BC and North Dakota. Those four alone have the means to continue to recruit at a high level and stay at the forefront of college hockey regardless of what happens in Hockey East our with the NCHC.
