    WCHA What If Calculator: 2010-2011

    Well, Siouxsports has their What If Calculator back up...

    https://siouxsports.com/hockey/whatif/index.php?confid=1

    Here is what I had...

    1. North Dakota - 45 pts
    2. Duluth - 41 pts
    3. Denver - 39 pts
    t4. Wisconsin - 31 pts
    t4. Nebraska Omaha - 31 pts
    6. Colorado College - 30 pts
    7. Minnesota - 28 pts
    t8. Bemidji State - 22 pts
    t8. Anchorage - 22 pts
    10. Mankato - 21 pts
    11. SCSU - 18 pts
    12. Michigan Tech - 8 pts

    Obviously it's VERY early, as most teams have only played half their schedule. Anyway, please post your picks and thoughts.

    DU and UND have virtually the exact same (easy) schedule the rest of the way. I'd be amazed if those two teams don't finish 1st and 2nd within two points of each other.

    How about DU's schedule compared to Duluth's?

    Both play SCSU at home and Mankato on the road. Duluth gets UNO at home and DU plays UNO on the road (advantage UMD). DU gets Tech at home and UMD plays them on the road (a wash). UMD gets MN at home but DU plays them on the road (advantage UMD). They each play CC, although UMD's are both at CC while DU gets one at home (slight advantage DU). DU host AA and UMD hosts UW(a wash).

    I would take Duluth's schedule over DU's any day.

    Very similar schedules as far as who they play, but when you look at home/road it's a little different. Sioux go on the road to play the bottom two teams and then the #5 team in conference. Denver plays the #4 team in conference, two teams that are tied for #5, and the team tied for #8 in conference. It's a much more difficult road schedule for Denver. Duluth has a slightly easier road schedule going in than Denver as well, playing at the #5 team in conference, #8 team and #12 team.

    If they do that, they could challenge for home ice.

    In all honesty, I don't think we get home ice, but I would wage dollars to donuts we still finish ahead of Anchorage, Mankato and Bemidji, the first two for sure. MAYBE Sconnie, but I doubt it and we'd need to sweep them at the NHC.

    If St. Cloud played up to pre-season billing, they could get home ice. It would be a remarkable turnaround. Saying that, they play a brutal schedule including the top 3 in the conference. It will be difficult moving up, especially with the way they've played the first half, but I've seen quite a few second half surges so I won't rule it out.

    We'll know in January.

    28 pts. will be the minimum for home ice. I don't really see much chance for 6th unless you have at least 28 pts. That will also probably require some sort of tiebreaker win.

    SCSU can get there, but it would be tough. Basically they need to sweep the 3 January series against Tech and Mankato at home and BSU on the road. If they can do that, then get a split in the 5 tougher series at UNO, UMD and DU, and home against UND and UW, they've got 29 points. But any slip ups and they're going to need to pick up 3+ pts. in the UND or UW series at home, most likely, or they're going to be on the road in the first round.

    DU is 10-2-1 in their last thirteen games, including road victories against UND & UMD. I'm not too worried.

    May be time for a checklist then.

    I miss Chambers' ravings this year about how dominant DU will be (BEST TEAM EVER!!). Now this year we have to settle for Yale.

    So what you're saying is that DU's only losses and draw in their last thirteen games came on the road?

    I had Minnesota split with teams ahead or tied with them, and sweeping teams behind them. They end up with 34 points then. Obviously, this is incredibly optimistic seeming beating teams they probably should has not been their M.O. thus far.
