Is DU Hockey Better When CC is Very Good?
Root for CC? Well, not exactly. But, after placing last in the National Collegiate Hockey Conference (NCHC) media poll for the second straight year, is DU hockey actually better off with a strong Colorado College team? Of course, any hockey team can win on any given night because hockey is about emotion and effort as much as it is skill. Especially in a relatively short 4-game series when the under dog is highly motivated. But, over the course of a long season, the most skilled teams will usually rise to the top of league standings.
Do you think DU hockey is better when their main rival, CC, can battle for the top spot? Or, do you see an extremely competitive NCHC and believe DU needs to scratch out every win it can get - especially against CC!
