    Bentley's biggest issues are they don't play a very difficult schedule, have a short history, and can't quite seem to win their conference. They are one of only 7 programs to have never captured conference hardware, and of those, Bentley has played fewer D-1 games than any of them...sans Arizona State. If they can get over the hump and win some hardware, they can move up. If not, then it does appear that Arizona State will pass them in the very near future.

    Know we have several months before The Top 10. Even though gophers didn't make the tournament, I project DU eats into their 30 point lead, but not enough to take over the third spot. BC and BU may flip spots at #s 5 and 6, but not enough points to take DU out of #4.

    You know I'm not a NoDak fan, but I hope the ugly helmets don't take the top spot.

    bentley should be much higher due to all the wins they have over northeastern (best team since sliced bread!!)

At that pace, we should have this wrapped up just before the season begins...and we can transition back to more exciting topics. It's a bit streamlined from previous seasons, so let me know what you think. So, without further delay, #60-56:

    Thanks...it's crazy to think I have been putting this together for nearly 10 years now.

    It typically takes me about 2 weeks to get everything in and then do the triple-double check, so I should have the numbers ready by the end of April. I might do the reveal slightly differently this year, so I may not need as much help as in year's past.

    As for Saturday night, it looks like it will be a tremendously close race between Duluth and Tech for the 10 spot if the Bulldogs take the title. If the Irish lift their first title, it might shake things up a bit more than I was originally thinking...but they should still crack the Top 20.

    Thought I'd give a quick update here before today's games.

    Michigan - Likely will take over the #1 spot after this season. The biggest question will be how big will their lead be?
    Minnesota Duluth - They have a shot at cracking the Top 10 if they win their second national title.
    Notre Dame - Should crack the Top 20 with a national title.
    Ohio State - A championship would likely push the Buckeyes into the Top 25.

    #4 – Denver Pioneers
    Points: 413.4035 Points
    Points Earned in 2016-2017: 47.6355 (Rank: 1)
    Points Earned in Past Five Seasons: 59.5618 (Rank: 2)
    Last Season Ranking: #6

    By all measures, the Pioneers had a very successful season, culminating in winning the National Championship 3-2 over UMD. Along the way they won the NCHC regular season title with 59 points, tying the conference record set the year before. Their record when leading after the first and second periods was 41-0-2. Although they graduated eight seniors, the only big loss was Hobey Baker winner Will Butcher. Everyone else returns, including coach Jim Montgomery, who turned down an offer to go to the NHL. Denver is the heavy favorite to repeat as national champs. – Siouxfaninseattle

    #3 – Minnesota Golden Gophers
    Points: 444.5372 Points
    Points Earned in 2016-2017: 4.1891 (Rank: 7)
    Points Earned in Past Five Seasons: 33.4809 (Rank: 7)
    Last Season Ranking: #3

    Minnesota maintains its #3 position. The Gophers won the Big Ten Regular Season title, their NCAA record sixth consecutive regular season title. Indeed, only Minnesota even knows what it is like to win the B1G Regular Season championship. The Gophers fell to eventual Frozen Four entrant, Notre Dame, in the Regional Semifinals, and ended their 2016-2017 campaign with a 23-12-3 record. Coach Don Lucia returns behind the bench for Minnesota, his 19th season in charge of the Maroon and Gold. The Gophers return an experienced netminder in Eric Schierhorn, along with leading scorer Tyler Sheehy, and stud recruit Casey Mittelstadt. Minnesota will look to bring more hardware back to 3M Arena this campaign, and they may need to if they wish to hold off hard-charging Denver. - Fighting Sioux 23

    #2 – Michigan Wolverines
    Points: 504.2659 Points
    Points Earned in 2016-2017: -0.8752 (Rank: 60)
    Points Earned in Past Five Seasons: 12.1605 (Rank: 14)
    Last Season Ranking: #2

    Michigan struggled in 2016-2017, going 13-19-1 in legendary coach Red Berenson's final season. Their 13 wins were the program's fewest since 1985-1986, Berenson's second season in Ann Arbor. The Wolverines have now missed the NCAA Tournament in 4 of the last 5 years, but will look to rebound in 2017-2018. The U of M does return its top 5 scorers and experience in net. If the Wolverines can get back to their winning ways and bring home some hardware, they should push North Dakota for the #1 spot in these rankings. - Fighting Sioux 23

    #1 – North Dakota Fighting Hawks
    Points: 507.9874 Points
    Points Earned in 2016-2017: 1.1858 (Rank: 14)
    Points Earned in Past Five Seasons: 68.0516 (Rank: 1)
    Last Season Ranking: #1

    North Dakota had its share of ups and downs in 2016-2017, but once again found its way to the NCAA Tournament for a school record 15th consecutive season. UND fell to Boston University in double overtime in the Regional Semifinals after a controversial no-goal call in the first overtime after the Hawks appeared to score the game winner. North Dakota failed to make the Regional Final for the first time since 2010, and did not bring home any hardware for only the second time in the past 15 seasons. North Dakota lost three underclassmen who went straight to the NHL in Brock Boeser, Tyson Jost, and Tucker Poolman. UND does bring in another strong recruiting class, and the Hawks will look to bring home some hardware this season to try and maintain their #1 spot in these rankings. - Fighting Sioux 23
