Everyone has various metrics and such they use for something like this. To me I look at a guy like Randolph who took over something not too great, made it a top program, and has kept it at a high level. Like him or not the track record is there.

Eaves named coach at St. Olaf

Interesting hire. If he has the juice needed in the tank could be a home run for them. Hockey knowledge certainly isn't an issue. Best of luck to Eaves and the Oles!

Refs certainly weren't perfect but these are HS hockey refs were talking about, you have to be mature enough to deal with whatever calls are made and move on, that is part of the game.

Not gonna happen this year. Talent gap between the two teams is much wider this season so WBL margin is much, much slimmer.

The Little Ten has 3 garbage teams, and Penn St. has 1 quality win all season which was back in Oct.

Thus I could see Gophers winning i...

There's certainly talent here but not like the HM teams of even a few years ago, they are beatable, but will be a tough out...I think Stilly is certainly a threat.

Awesome list, thanks!

A couple things you can adjust would be:

Ryan Black is currently playing at Northern Michigan
Andrew Willner formerly at Holy Angels is now with Fort Frances SIJHL.

I think it's a no lose for Hakstol. If he succeeds great, if not he can certainly come back into college coaching at some point and get a job I'm sure.

From what I have seen this year LN and Edina are top 2 clubs. I like STA quite a bit but really think their goaltending has a lot to be desired the times I've seen them. Nothing against any other teams but I hope we see a rematch in March.
