Further Proof Of WCHA Dominance
Four out of the past five national champions have come from the WCHA:
2000 national champions: North Dakota, who finished second in the WCHA
2002 national champions: Minnesota, who finished third in the WCHA
2003 national champions: Minnesota, who finished second in the WCHA
2004 national champions: Denver, who finished fourth in the WCHA and did not advance out of the first round of the WCHA playoffs
Looking at this makes me want to break out my eighties disses of other hockey conferences ... the CCHA (Can't Cut It Hockey Association), the EZAC, and Hockey Least.
