Battle of the Polls

Each week, I conduct a new media National Collegiate Hockey Conference Power Rankings poll for Inside Hockey. I was interested in seeing how the results of a fan poll would compare with the bloggers/writers. So looking at the results, how do the two polls compare? First look, I would say that there are more UND fans that participated in this poll. What do you think of the fan’s responses?
