Scheel a top ten finalist for the Mike Richter award.  

Chance that a goalie not named Spencer Knight wins the award????????

I see McKay winning it.

If Scheel and Knight played the same number of games and same competition, I'd say Scheel would have better numbers across the board.

I don't think I have ever told this story here, but this seems like a good time. It was June, 2016. My brother asked Brad to come to my mom's house with the national championship trophy. My mom didn't

Bubbs is such good people its ridiculous.  Bringing the students pizza before the games, talking to people on the street that others wouldn't give 10 seconds of their time too, taking the time to talk

Love how Leipsic's penchant for cocaine/MDMA use is the buried story here.  Hope it was just him and not the other members of that group . . . . Also, funny how "locker room" talk gets you booted

I thought Dryden McKay was the clear shoo-in to win the Richter? He is higher than Knight in most statistical categories.

You guys think so? I definitely think McKay is going to win it. I get the "East Coast Bias" thing, but I feel like McKay is highly respected across college hockey.

I think McKay will win also. I also think he should. He’s been great for Mankato since he got there.

Well, he’s got the name for it as well.

World Juniors AND at an East Coast school will make Knight a favorite for the award. Personally, I think McKay deserves to win it. Just don't feel it is going to happen. My 2 cents...

That's fair. I personally believe (and hope) those who vote for these kinds of things have an idea of what McKay has done to not ignore him. The WJC connection is stupid and should have zero bearing.

I think they should hold off on some of these awards until after the regionals so they can get a little more idea on how conferences match up. 

... this year especially.

It's tempting to just conclude that championship winners are better, but I don't think we can be that simplistic.   IMO, Archie Manning was a better QB than a bunch of those who won SBs. 

My Thinking on this is that Scheel in my opinion is the better goalie but he has yet to prove himself in the National Tourney.  I harken back to a discussion I watched on the NHL network between I don't remember who the talking heads were but the discussion was about who was better Jonathan Toews or John Tavaris.  The discussion ended in agreement that Toews was the better center because he had won several championships and both agreed that Tavaris name should not be compared to Toews until he won a ring.  That is how my thinking leans in the discussion between Cam Johnson and Adam Scheel.

Weatherby and Scheel named forward and goalie of the month in the conference. Raise your hand if you believed this would happen for Jasper back in January? If you're raising your hand, you're a liar lol.

Impressive stuff for him. Scheel just keeps showing how great he is. He's so confident right now. Great month... let's make March even better.

Somewhere between three and eight games left and then this strange, fun season is done.  They're obviously just as good as anyone, but there's a handful of teams who feel the same, and another couple handfuls who want to pull a Yale. Because it's hockey, any of them could. 

I just rewatched the 1997 title game and the main thing that stood out to me was how much the defense position has changed.  This current group has such good hands and feet, and I hope that's what ultimately separates them from the field.

Boatloads of individual awards this year.  Congrats on the well deserved honors, but they count for exactly zero goals on the scoreboard in upcoming games.

Yup, all those awards and it still takes $5 to get a footlong ham sandwich at Subway.
