Pre-Season USCHO poll released(Read bulletin board material)
The USCHO.com preseason poll came out today and has four teams from Hockey East in the top 20. The Poll looks as follows
1. Notre Dame- strong team with lots of returnees from Frozen Four team last year
2. Miami(OH)- Have two great goalies and will carry the team this year
3. North Dakota
5. Newton University?- This is not a top 5 team in the country, but hey I'll let them think they are to start off the year
7. Colorado College- I still love this team for embarrassing BC last year in the tounrny
8. Minnesota- Duluth- defending champs
9. Yale- still the most overrated team in the shittiest conference
10. BU -I have seen BU ranked everywhere from 2 to 10 now. I prefer the lower ranking to motivate the team and avoid any early season let-downs but I truly believe this team is better 10 but no better than 5. BC at 5 is a joke but like I said we'll let them say their prayers before every game and pretend they are better than they actually are
12. UNH- led by Frozen pizza goalie Matt DiGiorno
15. Merrihack- Dennehy has the goons led by Bigos ready for their second season of being relevant.
16. Maine- Coach Tim Whitehead knows if this team doesn't make the tournament, it will cost him his job
There will be more hockey to come in the next few weeks as BU and many other teams have exhibition games this coming weekend.
