Most trips up and back I29 have been less than idea for hockey games this winter. Wasn't in the mood to deal with that s#!t again.

Will head out tomorrow to take in WBB and hockey.

During last offseason, UND lost eight players to NHL contracts. That was, by far, the most of any program. It's more than double every program in the nation outside of two — Boston College (five) and Wisconsin (four).

Last season, UND, Boston College and Wisconsin all had great teams.

UND won the National Collegiate Hockey Conference. Wisconsin won the Big Ten. Boston College won Hockey East. They were all No. 1 seeds in the NCAA tournament.

Not surprisingly, the three programs — all similar in profile as college hockey traditional powerhouses — lost more NHL talent than anyone. Here's where they sit right now:

1. Wisconsin (four NHL signees) has lost six-straight games. It is 8-19-3, ahead of just one team in the Big Ten standings. It is No. 37 in the Pairwise Rankings, one spot behind Canisius, with a .317 PWR point percentage.

2. Boston College (five NHL signees) is on a 10-game winless streak, which is the longest since Boston College's program began in 1917. The Eagles are No. 34 in the Pairwise, one spot behind Lake Superior State and one ahead of Sacred Heart. The Eagles have a .445 PWR point percentage and are in eighth in Hockey East.

3. North Dakota (eight NHL signees) is No. 13 in the Pairwise Rankings with a .607 PWR point percentage. The Fighting Hawks are in second place in the NCHC, a league that would have five NCAA tournament teams if it began today.

Also, this fact stood out to me:


Colorado College has not been swept on the road all year.

And this weekend they play a shorthanded UND team with its best player out of the country.
Hopefully UND can play fast and hard and get two wins!
