    That's exactly what keeps the HEA down in third. The top teams in HEA were (as you know, these are based on last year's numbers) right there with the NCHC teams. But since this is an average teams like UML (3.7), UMass (5.6), Providence (7.5) and others brought the average for HEA down significantly. That actually should help the top HEA teams in the PWR, since the PWR undervalues strength of schedule. An ideal schedule for the PWR includes a significant number of cupcakes to bolster winning %, and HEA will have that built in with the bottom 1/3 of the league. NCHC and Big 10 teams, if they all trend towards being upper-tier teams, will need to schedule as many weaker teams as possible in their non-conference schedules to keep up.
    That's a big IF for the teams trending to be upper-tier teams. Someone is going to be a bottom feeder in the conference. And if you are a recruit, do you want to play in those conferences to play your non-conference games against lower level teams?

      Re: Future WCHA versus Big/Little THC ...

      This thread is ridiculous. As was stated, recruiting will make a massive shift once the conferences realign. In Minnesota, for example, it's not unusual for someone to opt for a small state school knowing they will be playing essentially the same schedule as the Gophers a la WCHA. Come B1G, these kids will more than likely push for being a Gopher in order to play Michigan, Ohio St, Wisconsin, etc -- rather than playing Bowling Green, Ferris St, Alaska, or Omaha. The same will be true in Michigan and Ohio.

      The dominant conferences will be the B1G & Hockey East. The new conference will have dominant schools, but considering most are pretty solid now, some will end up as doormats or the parity in general will bring the others to mediocrity. I would think No Dak and Denver will hang higher, but post-Dean Blais Omaha, SCSU, and Western Michigan will likely be doormats. Duluth, CC, and the rest will likely continue their roller-coaster like results with good years and bad. The W/C-CHA will be a hair better than the ECAC and I wouldn't be surprised if a handful of schools end their D-I statuses.

      Bottom line? Quit whining about the B1G reforming. Those schools carried two conferences and now realize the secondary schools can carry themselves. Without the B1G schools revenue boosts, there wouldn't be a D-I Ferris St, Bemidji St, St Cloud St, etc. It's good for hockey to show major conferences. Maybe the Big East will be the next to form, which would really put hockey on the collegiate map.

        10/7/11

        Bemidji State 5 (WCHA 1-0 vs. BHHC)
        Miami 3

        Northern Michigan 3 (WCHA 1-0 vs. LTHC)
        Wisconsin 2

        St. Cloud State 4 (WCHA 1-1 vs. BHHC)
        Alaska 1

        10/8/11

        Miami 3 (WCHA 1-2 vs. BHHC)
        Bemidji State 2

        Wisconsin 3 (WCHA 1-1 vs. LTHC)
        Northern Michigan 2

        Alaska Anchorage 4 (WCHA 2-2 vs. BHHC)
        St. Cloud State 3

        10/14/11

        Lake Superior State 5 (WCHA 2-1 vs. LTHC)
        Michigan State 4

        Colorado College 3 (WCHA 2-3 vs. BHHC)
        Bemidji State 1

        Michigan Tech 2 (WCHA 3-1 vs. LTHC)
        Wisconsin 1

        Northern Michigan 5 (WCHA 3-3 vs. BHHC)
        St. Cloud State 2

        Alaska Anchorage 3 (WCHA 4-3 vs. BHHC)
        Nebraska Omaha 0

        Overall:
        WCHA is 4-3 against BHHC
        WCHA is 3-1 against LTHC
        WCHA is 7-4 overall against BHHC + LTHC

        I don't have time to keep this updated throughout the next two years, but this is where it stands now.
        BTW, this is biased. Where's the Minnesota sweep of UMD? That would make the conference records 3-3, not 3-1. That's assuming the rest of the quoted post is accurate. Must be your epic No Dak edumacation.

          Congrats on remembering your password after registering three years ago. But on the downside, Minnesota's victories over UMD are irrelevant to this thread. I'll let you figure out why that is. Since you obviously don't have a No Dak edumacation, it shouldn't be too difficult for you.

              Been quite some time since someone on their 2nd post decried a thread I created but since people who have been here forever and gained an honest disdain for me have already beat you like a red-headed stepchild I'll take a pass this time.

                  Goon stop trying to use big words, everyone knows u are just a dumb No Dak Hick.

                  The last time you were in Minny someone probably taught you what retort meant and you have just been waiting to use it. Before that all your fat butt knew of was a chocolate torte.

                  MN 4-0 and leading all stats in the WCHA.

                  SUE 2-1-1 and Krispy Toes is your only good player....a MN kid of course.

                    Wow!!! What a major "****** Nozzle" you are... Actually, if you think that Kristo is the only good player that the Sioux have on their roster you're probably beyond ****** Nozzle. Wow!!! Did any of your family members live? Minnesota beat Sacred Heart aka the weak sister of the poor a team that was shut out in three straight games and has scored two goals on the season. While Kristo might only be tied for 7th nationally, he didn't get to pad the stats against a ****ty team like your guys did.

And after today's results my viscera is pretty satisfied ...

                          It was 7-4 ... right now it's 10-4 with just two such matchups to be decided. Bemidji is tied with CC 4-4 at the moment and If UA_ beats the fun-filled family card game it will be 12-4.
                          1. If I remember correctly, the person who referred to it as the island of misfit toys was a fan of a future wcha team.
                          2. "posing" as better hockey teams? They are better hockey teams. Find one piece of statistical evidence that shows the teams of the future WCHA as being comparable to the NCHC. Oh wait, you have two weekends worth of hockey.
                          3. As Mike Tice said "ENJOY the season."
