Time for a stupid poll, and who better to author such things. From which of the 4 conferences will the National Collegiate champ crowned next March appear?

Why is the Freddie Meyer conference not included?:confused:

You might as well have named this poll "Which conference has the most fans posting on USCHO.com?"

I agree but I did vote for WCHA even though I am a CHA fan. I just can't see Mercyhurst or anyone from the CHA winning it this year and as long as the WCHA keeps winning it,who am I to think it won't happen again.

Way to early to say for sure but at this stage if any team should be considered as the favorite you would have to say Wisconsin. If they stumble then the race could be wide open for another team, WCHA or otherwise, to step up and win it.

(sure hope that this is the case!)

You should have specified D-I.

You should have specified D-I.Technically, there isn't an NCAA D-I champion. But you're right, I should have included "Collegiate Champion" so as not to confuse everyone who saw the title and automatically assumed it pertained to D-III.

The CHA might earn a few more votes in this poll after this weekend's success. I LOVE IT!!!

Noncon records so far (ex. Sacred Heart, 1-0 ECAC, 2-0 HE):
ECAC 2-1-2
CHA 4-4-1
HEA 1-1-3
WCHA 3-4-2

Is this the first season-opening weekend the WCHA has ever had a losing record? But certainly this a new standard for parity among the conferences. Going to be a lot of movement in the polls all year, and wouldn't be surprised to see a team at .500 in January in the Frozen Four again.

Until another conference does win I have to stick with the WCHA... ask again in January!

Not over yet, Minnesota plays Syracuse in about 40 minutes.

Well, Mn's win over SU gets the WCHA to 500 right?

Technically you're right, but wasn't it so much more fun relishing the idea of a losing record, instead? :D

Don't worry.. our UMD team half made of freshmen has 4 non conference games out east .. Mercyhurst and BC this year.

Unfortunately, now I'm even more confused. Can you explain the technicality you mentioned?

Can you explain the technicality you mentioned?The NCAA refers to it as the "National Collegiate Women's Ice Hockey Championship" -- no mention of Division I. I believe the reason is that because there is no separate D-II tournament, D-II teams could theoretically qualify for this tournament field. In practice, that would be very difficult.

Now I'm confused. D-II? I didn't think there was such thing in Women's hockey.
