    While many of these guys highly deserve to be on this list, I somewhat feel it was chosen by overall potential. Bjugstad, Schwartz and Brown had good years and have bright, bright futures, but you could argue they didn’t have the best year on their team.

    I will admit I didn’t see many east coast games, so it is difficult for me to make lodgements on those selections, but I’m a little shocked to not see Krieder.

      Excuse my misspelling, I meant judgments, not lodgements. Stupid autocorrect.

    How can Shawn Hunwick be a Hobey finalist, the only Hobey finalist goalie from the West, yet not be one of the top two goaltenders in the West?

  • Union Tampa

    Ecac leads in all Americans… Still the ez-ac?

    Union more than any other team…
