Is there any truth to the rumor I've seen on Facebook that the reason we don't have a Hobey Baker nominee this year is because our Athletic Department didn't nominate anyone?

I assumed that’s why. This initial vote is basically every player nominated by the schools. Schools can nominate 3 players.

That said this fan vote has virtually no bearing on who will be Hobey Finalists.

Truth. UND didn’t even nominate Duncan for the award in the year he won it. 

Ryan Duncan:  "Best player in the country?  I'm not even the best player on my line."  I'm paraphrasing his response after winning the Hobey...btw, his linemates were TJ Oshie and Jonny Toews.

Speaking of Duncan, how did he not make the Olympic team?

I thought he had a good chance to make it. 

The other two goalies on the team have worse numbers.

UND moved from 12 to 8 in the PWR with a pair of "did not play" games this weekend. 

A couple more weeks off and we'll be #1!  :D 

Alright, we quit. See you guys in Sioux Falls! :D

My guess on how the final standings will look.

Final NCHC Standings

Team GP Pts
Denver 24 49
SCSU 24 48
UND 24 40
UMD 24 39
Western Michigan 24 36
CC 24 28

Miami 24 20

I'm assuming this is ILD's call, correct?

I hope you are right but I'm thinking UND sits at #4 and gets #5 Western in the first round.  Duluth's setback last weekend won't happen every week and until UND can prove it can sweep some series, it's hard to predict they will have those type of results.

The schedule is favorable for UND to move up. 3 teams at the bottom of the league and at home to close with SCSU, who isn’t as strong of a road team as they are at home. I am cautiously optimistic. 

UMD is off this week so perfect time to move ahead.

From your lips to God's ears.  I love it when I'm wrong when it benefits my team.  If the projection above stands, UND could be playing CC for the FOURTH time in FIVE years in the 1st round of the NCHC Tournament.

For Duluth to get to 39 points they would have to take 15 out of the remaining 18 points they have at stake.

For North Dakota to get to 40 points they need to take 16 out of the remaining 24 points they have left to play for.

 

Both are pretty realistic I think. Although it wouldn't shock me if UMD ran the table.....I just think they will lose one at Western Michigan.

I didn't delve into this until just now, but I agree. I think we have the advantage, here. But, we gotta actually do it. That's the kicker haha.

That, or just not play and have us move up in the PWR anyway, like we did this weekend :D
