2009 Final Rankings

April 15, 2009 Leave a comment

When we did our preseason rankings, we had a few that were a bit, shall we say, out there. But we showed our work and gave our reasoning. Some of them worked out, some of them didn’t. One of the teams we pegged was Boston University. We had some questions about Freshman Kieran Millan but loved Colin Wilson and the deep forwards of Nick Bonino, Jason Lawrence, etc. The Terriers stayed atop or near the top of our rankings for almost the entire season, and entered the NCAA tournament as the favorites to win the title. Although it wasn’t the smoothest of rides, the Terriers came through and took the 2009 title. They are rewarded with perhaps the biggest prize of all: The #1 spot in our final rankings. Read more…

The Boston University Terriers lead off the rankings for the 12th week in a row. The Hockey East champs took down yet another Hockey East title with a win over Providence on Sunday.

Due to not a lot of our top teams being in action last weekend, we’re just going to roll out the rankings this week.

Just a reminder, all week we’ll be previewing the conference tournaments. In fact, we only have three left: the WCHA, Hockey East and ECAC Hockey. For our money those are the most interesting as well. Read more…

A lot happened in the college hockey world over the weekend. One team (Notre Dame) clinched a regular season title, two (Air Force and RIT) shared one and another (North Dakota) moved within a point of clinching one.

Going into the last weekend of play we’ll take a look at the games facing the teams in our rankings, and where we think they’ll finish off the season. Read more…

First off I’d like to apologize both for the lack of content on here and the delay in getting the rankings out this week. I had two papers due and a test last week, and have two more tests this week. It’s not a good time to be a college student, folks. This (hopefully) will be the last week of such shenanigans, so expect more content, including an updated Hobey Watch, in the coming weeks.

On to the rankings. I literally thought about BU vs. Notre Dame for 20 minutes, but in the end I think BU has the ever so slight edge still. I do know that if they get to meet up in the Frozen Four it will be a heck of a matchup, and one I would love to watch.

In keeping with my slacker theme this week, just the rankings. Oh well, it’s not like I offer much in the way of nuggets anyways. Read more…

Last weekend seemed like a warmup to this coming one. BU took care of business for the most part against Maine to remain atop our rankings, and Notre Dame dominated Northern Michigan to remain at #2. Some great ones are on tap for this weekend however as BU faces off against Northeastern, Michigan faces Ohio State and Yale hosts Princeton. Regardless of how those games turn out, next week’s rankings should feature a lot of movers and shakers.

1. BU (23-5-2) (14-5-2) No Change

The Terriers currently lead the nation in winning percentage, combined special teams and scoring margin. Read more…

As you’ve noticed we’ve had some technical difficulties recently. I’m not a computer whiz, but I’m doing my best to get them all worked out.

I was debating whether or not I should run these rankings this morning, or yesterday even though I was going to have BU at #1 regardless. The Terriers rewarded me with a 5-2 thumping of Northeastern and their 29th Beanpot title.

1. BU (22-5-1) (13-5-1) Up 1

2. Notre Dame (21-5-3) (15-4-3) Down 1

The Irish could be without Christian Hanson and Ryan Thang next weekend. Read more…
