Like they said, it's extremely early, but thought this would be an interesting discussion.

<A HREF="http://thecollegehockeyblog.com/2012/04/09/extremely-early-preseason-top-5/">http://thecollegehockeyblog.com/2012/04/09/extremely-early-preseason-top-5/</A>

Who are your Top 5?

BC should be preseason #1 and no one else should be ranked. No one will know how to break their trap.

AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

What concept?

I'm not going to re-hash the stupid argument. I started this thread to talk about next season, and whom everyone sees as early favorites.

Preseason polls are usually wrong. Having Minnesota number one in such a poll makes me feel less optimistic about next season.

Stupid argument sounds right to me. Sounds good to not re-hash it.

Why not pick AIC preseason #1. At least it'll get some extra page views.

I didn't write the piece.

If you knew what the argument was, why did you ask? And yes, it was painfully stupid.

Michigan has the #1 incoming class... Always has. Always will. That means that they should always be the preseason #1.

Boston gets 2 rosters and they just back the one that plays the best. They should be #1.
Cornell is unrated or you would know that they are really #1.
Michigan Tech now has a new coach AND a skating treadmill. They got half way there last year. Next year...#1 baby!
Alabama is the #1 independent team and everyone is scared to let them in a conference because they would dominate.
Wisconsin started the Big 10 just so they could get a #1 tied to their team.
Minnesota is taking the #1 from the Big 10 and leaving Wisconsin with the 0. Just like their all-time high score in a game.
St. Cloud has already won their first NCAA game. Could this be the year they take another!? Huh? What do you mean you have to win 4 in a row to be #1? :confused:
UND will have everyone on the team doing #1 in an elevator. Does that count?
U Conn will move to Hockey Easy and then pull the trifecta of #1s.
UNH is ... never mind.

North Dakota will lose their top 2 scorers and #1 Goal tender. They don't belong in the top 5.

BC loses quite a bit, but probably not as much as they lost last year and look how that worked out :) They bring in three real "blue chip" recruits in forwards Frank Vatrano (NTDP) and Evan Richardson (BCHL) and defenseman Michael Matheson (USHL), all of whom should be able to help plug the holes left in the wake of graduations and early departures. On paper, if nobody else leaves (which is a BIG if), my feeling though is that both MN and UND should be at or near the top come October.

Well said. I would probably have BC as my #1 too. Minnesota's ranking would depend on whether Bjugstad comes back. 80% of their scoring came from underclassmen, and they lose no one on the blue line while brining in two high-end defensive recruits. Goaltending is an unknown. I like UND's team even without Nelson and Kristo if he leaves. Besides, they always seem to contend.
