Along with the 39th-place ranking, the INCH staff made this statement about Ferris State - "The good news is that the Bulldogs have a reliable defense and strong goaltending. The bad news is you can't win games without scoring goals."

Ferris State, under 16th-year head coach Bob Daniels, was listed 30th in Inside College Hockey's 2006-07 preseason rankings.
