    They have more losses than any of the teams in the top ten in RPI or Krach, so I don't buy your point. Win a couple more, and they don't have to worry. No method will be perfect for picking the top 16.

    The RPI is one of the worst, if not THE worst, rating system ever conceived, and it is THE main, or only actually when you really look at it, determining factor considered to determine the NCAA field and seedings, etc..

    I looked at the RPI rankings of teams this week and compared it to the PWR and they are virtually identical.

    Hockey is a great sport and deserves better than the RPI and the PWR based almost completely from the RPI.

    Oh, well as a Gopher football fan I can relate to a Michigan Tech hockey fan. You guys just need a great coach, another MacInnes like coach.

WOW, not sure there is more than 1 or 2 teams in the entire country that has sucked worse than Miami of Ohio has the last 2 months or so?! I think they were on a 1-8-1 run pretty recently.

    But here you guys figured out a way to lose to them?! lol

    I enjoyed the OT winner at Yost last night via TV, hope you get the sweep.

    It is a B1G deal to be the regular season champs for the first year of the Big 10 hockey. Count all of the Championships won by its members. This hockey conference of 6 have more championships than any other conference. It will be great when the Gophers pull off the double when both the Men and Women both win the championships. Both are going to be the overall number one seed.

    Using the criteria that titles follow the school here are the title breakdown by current affiliation.

    Conference/Titles
    Big 10/23
    NCHC/17
    Hockey East/12
    WCHA/7
    ECAC/5

    You could say that about a fan of pretty much every other team that had been to the NCAA tournament except NoDak (and BU and Michigan, who appear to only have Frozen Four participation banners). At least we don't put up individual banners for each NCAA appearance like Miami, Colorado College, Western Michigan, Bowling Green and a number of others. While I could take or leave the participation banner, I refuse to be embarrassed.

    Congrats to the handful of Gopher fans I like

    You of all people I didn't think would bring up sports other than hockey. For shame, sir. For shame.

    I didn't hang ****. And I sure as hell didn't start a thread congratulating my team for winning a 6 team conference.
