Probably has a lot to do with signing a proven winner like Dean Blais as head coach in 2009.
Oh, also, here is the channel for all the hockey stuff.
Sorry. I missed this last week. Even if the team keeps moving in the right direction and injured players return no worse for the time off, with the record Ohio State is posting in the first half it's still going to be difficult for the team to make much of a move within the WCHA. Fourth place is the absolute max. Fifth is more attainable. If the Buckeyes make it out of the first round of the conference tournament it would likely mean they upset a top 10 team which would be a fantastic end to the season. Maybe it's the wrong view to take but I'm kind of looking at this year's progress as a big lead into next season.
Thanks and, as always, you're welcome :)
Gah! It *is* all my fault! Well there will sure as heck be some art in the next series preview.
