    (Keeping in mind the title on the thread...)

    Minnesota has won three regular season WCHA championships in a row, and four out of five. Wisconsin has won three regular season championships in a row, and five out of six.

    Ohio State has yet to win a WCHA regular season championship.

    Looks like Muzzy has OSU locked in.

    I think after the last St. Thomas/UMD game that will be unlikely.I expect UMD will be piling on.

    One of these days someone will let their guard down and be too complacent and the Tommies will shock them.

    Both St. Thomas and Bemidji have predominately Minnesota players. The Beavers have a pair of players from Alaska, several Canadians, and a player from North Dakota. St. Thomas has one Canadian, a player from Maine, a player from Alaska, two from Switzerland, one from Hungary(via Vermont), plus the Promersberger sisters from North Dakota. These two teams have a very similar composition.
    I think Bemidji does have a harder time recruiting than any of the other colleges in the WCHA. They have given the Gophers many headaches in the past, and I hope that they get it together enough to keep pestering the highly ranked teams.
    It's much more about coaching that it is recruiting. The bottom half of the league has to play a different style of hockey against the top half and secondly improve across the board as a team as the season moves on to be closer to the middle of the standings at the end between. The glaring difference between STT and BSU? Coaching. Does the 'buck stop' at the HC in the WCHA.

    I don't know what to do with that.
    Admittedly, that was against two of the top five statistical defenses, so it is unlikely to be repeated. For some reason, that is something that we have seen from time to time from the Badgers over the years. They will have long stretches where they are dominant, and the other team can barely get the puck out of the zone to change. Tons of offensive zone time, and it will produce what look like good scoring chances, but the puck just doesn't go in at the rate it should. You definitely have a roster where the dam can break and they will explode again, but it is a puzzler.

    Probably true on the weekends that you watched them, but the Gophers had just lost Laitinen when they were in Madison, and Oden moved to the blue line to fill her spot so three lines were reconfigured. Now Laitinen is back, and the forward lines have at least had more time to adjust. UMD is still tighter defensively than UM. On their plus side, the Gophers aren't going to go 180 minutes scoring a single goal. Of that I'm confident.
