Years ago, McLeod said, the tournament depended so heavily on Gophers fans that league officials fretted about what would happen if the Gophers did not make it. They found out the Final Five could stand on its own. While he can’t predict how it will weather the latest changes, he is hopeful it will endure.

“Our vision was always to make it a destination,’’ he said. “The NCHC, the Big Ten and us all agree that we’ll be OK. We’ll all get our slice of the pie. But none of us are going to have anything like this.’’
