Yes more Polls!!!

The USA Today/USA Hockey Magazine pre-season coaches poll is out! I know you have all been waiting for this day! The Badgers are ranked #14, a good spot to start the season. Miami (OH) is #1 even though Denver cleaned up on 1st place votes w/ 13 (2nd in the poll) & BU was right behind them w/ 12 in the 3rd spot.

Other WCHA teams are minnesota at #6 (did Woog and the Rug get extra votes?), North Dakota at #8 and St. Cloud at #13. Duluth and CC are receiving votes, not sure who voted for CC.

Two other blogs have given their stab at predicting the WCHA standings. "This is the WCHA" (don't bother reading we have more WCHA coverage here then he does) places the Badgers 6th. Over at Goon's World, he thinks the Badgers will finish 2nd.
