How about those Huskies?

This is my first year at Michigan Tech and I have obviously become a fan of their team. I was raised in the Detroit area so I know the Wings and the NHL very well, but not the Huskies and WCHA.

I was just wondering what others following the NCAA think or know about the Huskies and/or the WCHA.

Some things I know, or have noticed:
1. We are a lot better than we once were - Mel Pearson has turned the team around for sure with more wins this season than the last three combined
2. We step up against top-ranked teams. We are 3-2-2 against top 3 in the nation teams including wins against Denver, Minnesota, and Minnesota-Duluth.
3. Yet, we have a very average record including a loss to St. Lawrence.
4. We are terrible at defense and on the PP.
6. We score a lot of goals
5. Our high caliber competition is going to decline with the realignment.
6. Our goalie depth does not look too good

One thing I want clarified is the reputation we have as a dirty team. Is that how we are perceived? I can't tell, because I heard this over on FSN North, when they televised the UMinn vs. MTU game and Lucia and the MTU assistant coach were a bit fired up. The announcers were claiming we were and always have been dirty, but maybe they were just homers...
