Another change, though, could be most welcome. Tortorella has said in the past that he can’t wait until Chris Kreider, the Rangers’ first-round pick (19th overall in 2009) with NHL-ready size and speed, signs.

Well, he is expected to sign when Boston College’s season is finished.

The problem with that is that the NCAA Frozen Four in Tampa — yes, Tampa, Fla. — is April 5-7, which are the dates of the Rangers’ final two games of the regular season. So if BC makes it that far, Kreider won’t have a chance to get any pro action before the playoffs.

That's why you root for Minnesota-Duluth to win the WCHA tournament. It's nothing personal against BC. They will be the #1 seed in the entire NCAA tournament if Minnesota-Duluth doesn't win the WCHA. That's the only scenario where BC isn't #1 overall. If both teams wins their conference tournaments,Duluth is #1. BC will be a #1 seed no matter what. They will be the #2 overall seed if Duluth wins the WCHA.

#16 will be Air Force/Niagara/RIT
#15 could be a team such as Western Michigan coached by Andy Murray. Danny DeKeyser. Matt Tennyson.
