6). Air Force - Still the #1 ranked team in Colorado Springs.
7). Northeastern - 3rd Place in the RPI Tournament and will likely get third place in the Beanpot, but may win Hockey East.
8). Boston College - 4 more National Championships and they'll be tied with DU.
9). Princeton - We're not actually buying any of this "Princeton is really good" crap the national college publications are selling, we just think it would be funny to see another ECAC #1 seed get trounced in the Tourney
