That will not be the case this season if Wisco beats VT. Wisco is going to lose to a Hockey East school somewhere down the line. Might as well get it over with early.
    In the last 10 years WCHA 6, HE 3, CCHA 1. Any other stupid comments you wish to make?

        And I am not hating on the WCHA. I am only hating on all the teams in the WCHA besides NoDak.

              I have seen Vermont play on TV a few times and in person - went to the series vs. BU in Burlington. Vermont won those 7-3, 3-2.

              When Vermont plays well, it seems to me, that they score quickly - not a lot of controlling possession in the offensive zone for a long period of time and then scoring - but more of quick offensive possessions resulting in scores.

              Since I don't see UVM controlling play in Wisconsin's zone for long stretches, that may be an advantage. And, Madore can be a lights-out goalie on any given night - see the back-to-back shutouts against #1 seed New Hampshire. (And we all saw how UW struggled against Lee when he was on the Final Five).

              I'm not necessarily predicting a UVM win. If Vermont plays poorly and Wisconsin is at top of its game, could be 7-1 Bucky. But if the Cats are on and Wisconsin is not, a Cats win isn't going to surprise me.

                So you are going with a 3 year sample size to prove HE's dominance. Brilliant.

Greger Hanson if he plays the way he did in the CCHA tournament St. CLoud is in trouble. With 6 guys in double digits in goal this team can strike at any time. its gunna come down to Stewart in net i feel.
                  That's certainly impressive. But having said that, SCSU is still a deeper team than NMU.

And we had 5 guys with double digit goals, and our conference schedule doesn't include games against powerhouses like Western Michigan and Bowling Green.
                    Nope just powerhouses like Michigan Tech, Minnesota, and Anchorage.

                      Certainly offensively.

                      Of course if our top 2 lines score 7 goals on Friday you can take your depth with you all the way back to St. Cloud.

                      (The same could be said the other way around.)

                      Also we have some guys on our 3/4 lines who have been playing well lately in Pietila and Maltese.

                                Minus the cupcakes you mention, NMU is 3-0-2 against the WCHA this season with two of those wins at Duluth and Minnesota. Granted they should have had a clean sweep against Tech (1-0-2) You may also want to consider that NMU (with much of this years team) also swept Wisconsin in Madison last season so you cannot affort to take the Wildcats lightly.

                                Looking forward to the game this weekend. Hope to have a couple of beers with fellas fans in Saint Paul. Go Cats Go!!!
