    This will be Maine’s last week in the Top 20, after they get crushed by North Dakota next week.  Thanks Timmay!

      North Dakota should be better simply by graduatiing the most overrated player in college hockey, Genoway.  Never saw a small, injury-prone weak defensive player get so much praise

        What is your deal with Genoway? He was consistently part of the pre season WCHA teams and post season as voted on by the coaches, etc. He got injured one time from a brutal check from behind that made him miss basically his entire senior season at which point BTW he was one of the highest scores in the league as a defenseman. Get over yourself guy.

    Who votes in these polls? How does Miami lose to an unranked team in Bemidji at home and remain in the top five, while UMD splits with the #1 team in the country (Notre Dame) and drops a spot in the polls. Some knucklehead even gave Miami a first place vote…homer. Good thing the polls don’t mean anything.

    no problem with the number one given BC demolished UND.  BC isn’t playing its best yet, but they still killed the Sioux
