    I'm picking MN based on their blue line talent/depth, strong special teams, and ability to win playing both offensive and defensive styles.

        Ambiguous title: Cornell is always my pick to win.
        . . . still crazy after all these years. . .

          Quinnipiac

          I never have great reasoning, but here it is...

          They have an excellent team....

          They kept taking and losing the top spot in the polls all year...

          I like to see ECAC teams win.

          As I said, great reasoning as why I 'want' them to win...but no great reasoning why I believe they will.

            Cornell would also be acceptable.

            Harvard would be a distant third.

              I want to see Tech go all the way, but I'm too much of a realist.

              Had to go with the Gophers. Close could/should have been a Richter finalist, a lot of depth/high end skill, and the B1G was competent this year.

                Changed my mind! After yesterday game i would love to see Colgate go all the way! once again, no firm analytical reason why other than i like to see the underdog overcome!

                    I know I'm late commenting, but I wouldn't lie, I had Denver in the Frozen Four and losing a close game 4-3 to the Gophers. I also would have put Michigan in the FF with Q and Michigan winning that game and losing 5-4 to the Gophers, in OT.

                    Now that DU is out, that doesn't actually make me more confident as there always seems to be an underdog with tons of experienced players and I'm more afraid of one of those type teams than I would be a Denver or Michigan or even a SCSU who split their series with the Gophers. But I think the Gophers have the best all around team and the one preview show I watched had both of the commentators picking Minnesota as well.
