WCHA Web Media Poll: Week 7

Each week, I participate in a WCHA Web Media Poll that is put on by the Tech Hockey Guide with 11 other people that represent both the print media as well as the hockey blogosphere.

There is a little bit of movement in this week’s poll. The Denver Pioneers remain in first place even though they were beaten twice by UNH and Yale.

Next, the Minnesota Golden Gophers stay at second where they now hold that position all by themselves this week – even though they have yet to beat team that is in the national rankings or has a winning record.

Sliding to third is UND who has split their nonconference series with the 6th ranked Notre Dame Fighting Irish, in South Bend, Indiana.  Actually, UND has played three teams in the top twenty in three out of the last four weeks and holds a 4-3-1 record – so much for being rewarded for playing a tough schedule.

There was no other movement in the rest of the top seven teams as they all remained the same.
There was some other movement in the bottom five teams – Minnesota State climbed out of the basement of the poll from 11th place to eighth place.  After being swept, the Wisconsin Badgers fell from eighth place all the way down to 11th place. The Beavers and the Bulldogs traded places at ninth and 10th place.
