    Wheeww. Glad to see no first place vote for UNION this time around!

    Was at the Dartmouth-UC game Saturday in Hanover NH. Dartmouth is pretty good (10 freshmen), but not overly impressive.
    Union suffered from a road Harvard stomping hang-over.

    Denver may be No. 2 for now but the first of two tough stretches begins this weekend with a H/H against CC.

    BC has been so good the last 10 years. Plus it sounds like their next recruiting class is loaded. They have UNDs number lately,no doubt about that.

      Your correct on that one. I’d like to see a home series rotating every year with these two schools but I doubt that would be good Pairwise for either team if they did that all the time..

        They obviously played BU already and go there next season. Would love them to do that with BC also.

    Little surprised UNH cracked the top 5. They are playing very well, but the last couple wins have come against some lackluster teams (Maine and Vermont). But back-to-back (and 3 out of the last 4 games) shut outs, plus an OT 2-1 loss look pretty good.
