Nothing too shocking. UND I thought would start 3 or 4 due to incoming freshman that will make immediate impact. but you gotta respect what the teams ahead of you did in the tourney. all i can say is...without the nhl, im really realllly gonna enjoy some hockey at the ralph this year!

All due respect to the freshmen coming in, but higher than #5?

A national champion from last year doesn't even merit a single point in the poll? Lame.

Powers &8^]I'm too lazy to actually verify if it is true, but my guess is that UMD was the most recent team to be ranked in the D-I poll before ever playing a D-I game (OSU also received votes in that poll):

Been reading the SiouxSports.com forum, Women's Hockey 2012-2013 Thread. The #5 team isn't getting much love from the locals. Same for the women's game in general. Disappointing.

Ah.... Ok, so who COULD (not will) that team be? I'll throw out (in no particular order) Northeastern, Mercyhurst, Harvard. Alright, maybe not Harvard

LA Kings definition would be a team that has been around for a while, made the final only once before, quite a while ago, not done much since, and go on a run late in the season to finally win the big one.....

So let's start with a list of teams that have been to the final once only and lost. List is not that long:

SLU, Brown, Cornell, Mercyhurst and BU.......

So who would you tag with the LA moniker.....I'd say Brown or SLU, as those are the only two teams in that list that have not been to a title game for a while.

Everyone admits LA did have some talent, but underachieved. So who do you give the nod in that department, SLU or Brown. Hard call to make. SLU is more likely to go on a run and win, but Brown has probably underachieved the most in recent years.

So my verdict is Brown is the D1 version of the LA Kings. ;)

Brown had a pretty hot goalie last year. :p
More seriously, If goal tending is a factor, don't count out Clarkson. IMHO they have the best goaler in the ECAC right now. Quinny's main tender is a senior, and she has proven in the past that when she gets hot, that team could go on a run.

Was fully expecting Minny to be first in the pool out of the gate, but was not expecting that much of a "gap". Brooky done his victory dance yet ?. :)
