    The CCHA is better top to bottom.

      Haha, nonsense.  Maybe have a case with WCHA.  But Miami, with it’s down year?  Plus the bottom feeders compared to competitive teams like Vermont, both UMasses and others who actually make tourney appearances here or there?  Please.

        Exactly, three years ago, Merrimack was horrible. Now, it is the only undefeated team left. The last two years, Providence was terrible, now no one wants to play them.

    What we learned this weekend is that UMO is, once again, a very poorly coached team.  Fire Tim Whitehead already –

      Things like that are why folks call Maine the Mississippi of the north.

    I think UML’s blowout of BU shows not only how much potential they have this season but how overrated BU is this season!  I really can’t see why they are still ranked in the top 20 this week.

      BU is just being its normal, erractic self, especially before the Beanpot.

      There have been years where BU was a top-ten preseason team, got to Number 1 during the regular season, and then did not qualify for the NCAA tournament.

      There are not that many teams in NCAA Division I hockey.
