Looking at overall graduation losses, it seems that UW-Platteville will have a tough task to replace its top 3 point contributers with Chmiel, Ciszewski, and Brown. The three of them accounted for 30 goals and 15 assists.
Rumor has it that, UW-Oshkosh have a few transfers from UW-Green Bay for this fall, and will have talented forward Tony Starnes back from a season long injury. Will this be able to help Oshkosh return to the top of the conference after a fourth place finish last season?
UWW graduated three contributing seniors who will be missed, but it seems that the Warhawks will be prepared to compete for the conference championship with a few key newcomers who should produce along with a very good returning group.
UW-Superior apparently returns 10 starters from a 12-6-2 season where they competed in just about every game. Could this be the year that they shock the conference and seriously compete for the the title? I'm not so sure.
Finlandia is Finlandia.
My personal predictions are:
Offensive Player of the Year: UW-Oshkosh Tony Starnes
Defensive Player of the Year: UW-Whitewater Josh Rohde
