    There's Minnesota in the top 10 again. When will these pollsters ever learn?

    Not understanding Lowell above BC, UNH, and Vermont. If they ended finishing above one of those teams this year I think they'd be thrilled.

    Sure, I'll bite.

    They lose just three players to graduation. They have one of the best defenses in the country, led by All American Maury Edwards. They have two proven goaltenders.

    BC, UNH and Vermont all lost a lot of talent to graduation. Lowell owned Vermont last when they had Hobey candidate Viktor Stalberg, I don't see any evidence to make me believe that that status quo won't be maintained. BC finished 6th last year and start the season with Muse out for (most of?) the first half.

    I don't understand other HE fans not seeing the obvious. Maybe when the coaches poll comes out and Lowell is 1-2 (probably second, BU national title and all) they'll get the picture.

    yeah, but BC has Whitney... he was awesome last year, and

    Lowell has only Falite, who cannot skate or score and
    Holmstrom who plays like a little girl... never competes, plays hard, hits or looks like he wants to win

    (If Jimmy Hayes starts playing the way I think he is capable of playing, I will sing a different tune, but as of now... Lowell should be FAR superior to BC... Hutton and Hamilton together and are better than Muse, in my opinion)

    It's the 11 players they have that are 23+.....at some point they will outplay the under 20's. This would appear to be that year.

    And last year has what to do with this pole? If status quo is is maintained we can look for UML to finish behind UVM and UNH again?

    Agree, as a BU fan, UML scares me more than any other Hockey East team starting the season.

    Re: USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine Poll

    Can someone explain to me what all the points mean? Like how do they figure votes into points? This is something that doesn't make much sense to me.

    1st place = 15 points
    2nd place = 14 points
    3rd place = 13 points
    4th place = 12 points
    5th place = 11 points
    6th place = 10 points
    7th place = 9 points
    8th place = 8 points
    9th place = 7 points
    10th place = 6 points
    11th place = 5 points
    12th place = 4 points
    13th place = 3 points
    14th place = 2 points
    15th place = 1 point

    I hope that makes more sense now.

    I'll admit it, I didn't know either. Mostly because I never gave a crap to look it up or figure it out though.
