(#353) Are these five teams better than their rough starts?
In today's issue, I go back to my preseason rankings and look at the five teams that have underperformed the most based on where I had them slated in the preseason. Can these teams still do damage in the second half? Are they better than their starts suggest?
Specifically, I'm looking at Bowling Green, Minnesota Duluth, Michigan Tech, UConn, and Northeastern.
Also in this issue, Denver added goalie Paxton Geisel for the rest of this season. What could that mean for Matt Davis' availability?
Plus, news and notes on various topics, including NIL money in college hockey (another story about a recruit receiving a six-figure offer), revenue generated by Arizona State's program, and more.
