    Thanks for the link. That was back in the days when they actually let them play hockey.

    I'm watching the DU/UA_ game. Nanooks look really good and DU does not look like the #2 team in the nation. So much for preseason polls.

    UAF is 56-86-12 vs. UAA.

      The Nooks dropped the first game of the season 3 - 4 to Denver. SOGs were 36 - 33 Denver.
      Pretty good game for the first outing of the season. We had our chances. The Nooks gave up the winning goal with about a minute left in the game. Alaska goals by Newton, Marino, and S. Jandric. Denver goals by Barrow, Olischefski, Brink, and Guttman. Getíem tonight boys.

        The preseason polls are nothing more than a reposting of last year's tourney field with a few "big name" teams that missed the tourney sprinkled back in because the media can't not vote for them.

          Yep, pretty meaningless. Thought the Nooks had a chance when they tied it up. Either the DU power play was really bad, or the UA_ penalty killers were really good. Took the Pioneers half of the PP just to get it out of their zone! Gonna watch again tonight.

            What about the Coaches Poll? Would a fan Poll be more accurate?

                So I've spent a lot of time thinking about this, as well as some time playing with numbers. In general, past success presages future success; an Elo-style rating is generally useless as a predictive tool if you go back and say that everyone is equal at the start of the season. Even if you do a regression to the mean — which is what I've typically done — you can't regress too far to the mean and have value. How valuable? Stay tuned.

                That said, one thing that is true is that an Elo-style rating would differ from the tournament field. Sometimes, a good team is going to miss the NCAAs given the size of the field. Sometimes, a team puts a big lead out early and fades at the end of the season. I remember a couple of years ago that BELOW was saying good things about Bemidji the season prior to their Bitzer-fueled heights, despite the fact that they'd been a sixth seed in the league the previous year.

                Having been a USCHO poll voter, the other thing that I can say is this: I didn't get to watch many non-CHA games back in those days, as this was pre-streaming and non-regional TV coverage was largely limited to the postseason. You're ... you're just making stuff up, looking at standings, squinting at counting stats, and looking to see how many draft picks are on a team. I don't think that I ever spent more than a half-hour coming up with my votes, and while I'm sure that some folks were more responsible with their votes than that, the countless stories of "random SID intern" voting as "coaches" is real.

                  So what is the OUTLOOK for the UAA team? They travel to Maine for this weekend....as far as Maine goes....a real awful weekend for Maine....they gave up a ton of shots, took penalty's and had no offence to speak of. The only plus I see going into Maine season is there goaltender/Swayman...but then he can only be as good as the team in front of him....which the defense looks poor. Long trip over for UAA so that is Maine's advantage. I come away not knowing anything about UAA but see this series as a TOSS-UP.

                    Did anyone go to the scrimmage last week? Was there an actual arena sound system in place?

                            The Nooks look at lot better than the Seawolves do. I stopped watching their game. Congrats on the win Nanooks. Your team really outplayed the Huskies.

                              Beating them for the first time since 2014! After playing Denver tough last week, it is nice to be rewarded with a win.

                                And I thought the Pioneers were outplayed last weekend as well.
