      I'm going with Adrian as my guess.
      With Norwich hosting, it will probably be Bethel

          I'd love to see Adrian. Definitely an up and coming program. They have become among the perennial powers. Having them here might make up for the recent downgrade of boys with the blue Ms on their home sweaters.

            The only thing that maybe might hold Adrian back is that they came out to the NSB Tournament in 2011 so maybe they would prefer to go to Middlebury or Plattsburgh.

            Regardless,

            St. Norbert, River falls, Stevens Point, Eau Claire, St. scholastica and Adrian would all be excellent additions to the field.

                I saw that game. Norwich mailed it in. BTW, that was the only win thus far for a western team. Would love to see SNC or Adrian. Even Point or Eau Claire would be a good fit. SNC or Adrian would make this tournament a true event!

                  I forgot, a middling western team could NEVER have won that game if Norwich had "cared." Thanks for the reminder that it's cows on skates in the West.

                      It was in a lot of ways a less than memorable Norwich team, but I did edit your post, and I'll put up Vermont cows against the overrated Wisconsin cows any day of the week. White Cheddar > Orange Cheddar any day of the week.

                          Current top 4 teams in the nation would make a nice little tournament.

                          1 St. Norbert
                          2 Norwich
                          3 Plattsburgh
                          4 Adrian

                            Amen. If this year's SNC team is anything like what I saw last year near the end of the season and in the NCAA playoffs...they are a machine with superb parts at every position. I hate seeing great teams with a loss before the holidays go down in the standings most of all NU (but actually I hate those polls anyway). But what a great addition to the Primellink SNC would be and who knows how it would play out.

                            Good luck today NU Cadets!

                              From my post on the Plattsburgh thread ...

                              Unbeaten Cardinals, Cadets to clash in PrimeLink Great Northern Shootout - {Article courtesy of the Plattsburgh Press-Republican 11/28/2014}

                              The PrimeLink Great Northern Shootout habitually features intriguing matchups, and the 2014 tournament starts off with an especially tantalizing game.

                              Two undefeated, top-three teams — Plattsburgh State and Norwich University — will face off this afternoon in a nonconference men’s hockey game at Kenyon Arena. Host Middlebury College will play Concordia College this evening, and the championship and consolation games are set for Saturday.

                              “Going into the PrimeLink, the premier tournament in the country, we’ll find (out) a lot about ourselves …” Plattsburgh coach Bob Emery said.

                              Norwich, ranked second in the USCHO.com Division III Men’s Poll, has won its first six games, including a pair last weekend against St. Anselm and New England College.

                              Like Plattsburgh, the Cadets have found success using two goaltenders. Sophomore Ty Reichenback has played three games, posting a 1.67 goals-against average, while freshman Braeden Ostepchuk has been in net for the other three and posted a 0.67 GAA.

                              Offensively, senior forward Gerard McEleney leads the team with eight points.

                              “Norwich is going to go, go, go. That’s the type of team they are,” Emery said. “They really forecheck hard; they cause a lot of turnovers, and I expect them to continue to do the same.

                              “I think they’ll have a good power play, so we gotta to do a good job staying out of the box.”

                              No. 3 Plattsburgh has started the season 7-0, and Emery said one of the main reasons why is the play of Spencer Finney and Brady Rouleau. Finney is 4-0 in net with a 2.25 GAA, and Rouleau is 3-0 with a 1.34 GAA.

                              “Obviously, our goaltending has been good. They’ve given us a chance to win every night,” Emery said. “When you have unproven goaltenders after the graduation of an All-American, when you’ve got two guys coming in playing as good as you did, I think that’s the most important thing.”

                              Emery said playing hard and being disciplined have also been key to the Cardinals’ strong start.

                              Although they’ve been pleased with their overall play, the Cardinals are still looking to improve.

                              “You can always get better,” senior defenseman Preston Kaye said. “Defensively, we can tighten things up, avoid some of the odd-man rushes that we’ve given up. And getting pucks to the net is the biggest thing we can work on. And just getting dirty, grinding, (scoring) some of those dirty goals.”

                              Middlebury (1-1-2) comes into the tournament after tying Tufts University and defeating Connecticut College last weekend. Concordia (4-3-1), which plays in the MIAC, swept Bethel last week and is on a three-game unbeaten streak.

                              Kaye said the players enjoy the high level of competition at the annual tournament.

                              Oh, it’s by far the best D-III tournament in the country, and especially bringing in a team from the West; this year it’s Concordia,” Kaye said. “So it’s always interesting to see how they are in comparison to the East teams, because you never really get to see them. But it should be fun.”
