    Hobey Baker

    I'm ok with Perunovich winning. He was a terrific player, although if I were picking a team I'd pick his teammate Samberg over him. Guch had a great year, but it wasn't a dazzling statistical year to set him apart from the other players. He was simply clutch. But as for UND snubs in the Hobey voting, he'd still fall behind Greg Johnson, Jeff Panzer and Matt Frattin in my book.
  2. For goaltenders and forwards drafted in the top ten: Goalies: One year -- Rick DiPietro (1), Three years -- Al Montoya (6) Forwards: One year -- Phil Kessel (5), Kyle Turris (3), Jack Eichel (2), Clayton Keller (7), Tyson Jost (10), Casey Mittelstadt (8), Brady Tkachuk (4), Alex Turcotte (5), Trevor Zegras (9) One and a half years -- Kyle Okposo (7) Two years -- Dany Heatley (2), Thomas Vanek (5), Jack Skille (7), Jonathan Toews (3), James van Riemsdyk (2), Colin Wilson (7) Three years -- Blake Wheeler (5) Four years -- Eric Nystrom (10)
  3. For top 10 defensemen in the last 20 years, it is sort of a mixed bag (draft position in parenthesis): One year - Noah Hanifan (5), Jacob Trouba (9), Erik Johnson (1), Ryan Suter (7) Two years - Quinn Hughes (7), Cale Makar (4), Zach Werenski (8), Brian Lee (9), Jack Johnson (3), Mike Komisarek (7) Three years -- Four years -- Ryan Whitney (5) It's possible I missed a player or two, but I think it's hard to predict whether you'll get one or two years. You almost certainly won't get three out of a top 10 pick. One thing that might be working in our favor is there is some thought that this year's draft might be "down" a bit in terms of talent. The other thing, it's kind of crazy that Michigan has had five of the eleven players listed.
  4. Time to call it a season and award the championship according to the PairWise.
  5. I have to believe that if you are a Warroad high school hockey player, TJ Oshie and Brock Nelson are a couple of players whose names you are familiar with, so I assume that helps as well.
  6. I was bored last night so I was just messing around with CHN's pairwise tool that lets you modify game outcomes. If Canisius had swept us again this year, we'd still be #3 in the pairwise. Of course, none of us would still be around to see it.
  7. The only time I worry about what a UMD fan is saying is when they are reading my order back to me at McDonald's.
  8. St. Cloud swept Duluth in St. Cloud a couple of weeks ago. Tough at home.
  9. I don’t think they swap 1/16 out west with host school there, but maybe.
  10. I was looking at Jim Dahl's site. The St. Cloud situation is pretty crazy. They are at #27 in the PWR right now, and are a below .500 team fighting just to get home ice in the playoffs. If they finish the regular season 6-0, they could be as high as #6 in the PWR when the regular season ends. 21 spots in six games is crazy, especially this late in the year. Games against UND, Denver and UMD will do that, though, I guess.
  11. I personally don't think it will be that many. Atlantic Hockey, obviously. The ECAC and WCHA are the most vulnerable because they only have two at large qualifiers right now, which means that if any other team wins the tournament, that's another spot. Right now the B1G really only has PSU and Ohio St. as qualifiers with Minnesota on the bubble, but I think that if Minnesota, Michigan or maybe even Michigan St played their way into a conference title, they'd also probably be in the top 15. Same for WMU in the NCHC.
  12. Actually the games tonight are very interesting for the teams in the 15-18 spots of the Pairwise. Just playing around with the calculator at CHN shows these results: CC and Mich St win 15 MN 16 WMU 17 Mass-Lowell CC and Michigan win 15 WMU 16 Mass-Lowell 17 MN AF and Mich St win 15 Mass-Lowell 16 MN 17 Quinnipiac 18 WMU AF and Michigan win 15 Mass-Lowell 16 MN 17 WMU 18 Quinnipiac
  13. I agree 100% about Jake. He has improved so much. He clearly understands the game and is pretty good about making a comment about what a team is doing or needs to do that makes complete sense.
  14. What really strikes me from that table is how locked in the current #1 seeds are. Even if BC won 8 or more of its final 11, they still would need a lot of things to fall right to sneak into one of the top 4 positions. Everyone else who has a chance at a #1 seed outside the top 4 need to basically run the table and hope everything else goes perfectly for them.
  15. I think she writes about women's college hockey on USCHO and perhaps at other sites. I haven't seen a lot of what she has written, but I think she's a pretty vocal advocate for women's hockey. That's great, more power to her. For women's hockey to survive it will need a lot of vocal advocates for it. But I have no time for the vilification of UND for choosing to drop its program, especially as they are spending money that supports, in some small way, women's hockey in general by paying to advertise during a women's college hockey game.
