College Hockey News: NCAA Tournament Pairwise Comparison Ratings
UConn comes in at 25....
Technically they are calculated all year but no one posts it early. Since the pairwise is only useful when it has a sufficient number of results across the board to weed out statistical oddities and variance, and with the Ivies starting three weeks after everyone else, PWR is useless to look at until after New Years. It doesn't provide any real gauge or insight on how teams are stacked against one another or where they'll end up. As dumb as it is, polls are the best thing to look at right now for that.
I have come to think that KRACH is a better measure.
Agreed, it is. That said, PWR isn't a bad tool. Infinitely better than the BCS was/
23. Quinnipiac 24. Yale 25. UConn
Yale's goalie (Spano) is horrible. Unless they find a new goalie, this looks like a season with no NCAA tournament. QU is also not what they've been for the last few years. CT may be shutout of the postseason, unless QU pulls through.
Yale did change the goalie for the 3rd period.
I haven't seen them, but if their goalie is indeed bad that spells trouble for them as they relied heavily on Alex Lyon over the past couple of seasons for their success.
