Holy Cross this year (which matters a lot more) is not on the level of competition that the Sioux and Gophers have faced. The Crusaders have also been destroyed by Wisconsin 6-0 and barely beat one of the worst teams in college hockey (AIC). I'd put more stock in that compared to North Dakota facing off against two WCHA teams and Alaska and Minnesota facing off against a conference opponent and a mediocre Hockey East school. This is more just a general thought, but things will even out as the season goes on.
