  1. Matt Frattin. That is the only name you need to know when talking about the 2011 Hobey Baker. Kid is a beast.

  2. Listen, really, if anyone follows college hockey AND is unbiased there is no doubt Matt Frattin is the best college hockey player. You can tell me about Meile, and he is a fine hockey player, but he is not in the same ballpark as Frattin. Just go to Utube and watch some of Frattin’s highlights, this kid has it all. Speed, moves, strength and a shot that will take you into next week. Oh, did I say this shot is a WRIST shot? North Dakota has a great team but they are where they are because of one person, Matt Frattin.

  5. lost all respect for frattin, a great player, when he maliciously left his feet with intent to injure a minny player a while back…give it to hagelin, kid does everything

  8. Frattin is ridiculous. The guy is going to be a beast in the NHL, could contend for a scoring title some day with his shot alone.

    • I don’t necessarily believe that all four of the top seeds will advance… I just don’t see an underdog who seems like a great bet for an upset. I don’t do these picks to be right, but if I’m always wrong, what’s the point of reading (or writing) them? It’s a fine line between entertainment and credibility.

  11. BU hosting Providence in the quarter finals is probably Jack Parker’s dream scenario, meaning they swept Northeastern and get to host a TUC that they earned five of six possible points. Win that series (and the season finale against the Huskies) and the Terriers are probably in the NCAA tournament.

    No wonder tomorrow’s game at Agganis frightens me.

    • I am not a BU fan but I would love to see your scenario above play out. It just goes to show how important every single point is not only in HE but against all teams under consideration for the tournament. As you imply, there is no doubt Northeastern can beat BU. NU has guys playing for their spot next year and should pull out all the stops to end their season with a win. Rawlings could steal this game for NU also. If NU comes out flat or BU jumps all over them early and cruises to an easy win, it will be time to look at an NU coaching change.

  13. It’s true, only UML has clinched home ice in first round. BU can finish as high as second, if BC and UNH and PC all lose and BU wins.

  15. “While all eight teams that will play in this year’s Hockey East tournament have clinched their berths, none have locked themselves into a seed. For that matter (and I could be incorrect on this one, so correct me in the comments section if I’m wrong), but Lowell remains the only team in the league to have clinched home ice in the playoffs.”

    Yes, and yes. BC and PC could be 5th. UNH could be 6th. BU could be 2-6. MC could still be 4th, as you pointed out.

    What the PC win guarantees is that the league will have a non-“Big Four” winner of the regular season for the first time in its nearly three decade history.

  17. “…the Eagles are winless in neutral-site games” — unless you count the pre-season exhibition v Queens at Walter Brown which they won 10-2 :-)

    • @After Ieaving my work-desk job one year ago, i’ve been fortunate to find this great website that literally saved me… They offer jobs for which people can do their work online from their home. My last paycheck after working for them for 4 months was $10k… Best thing about it was that the only thing required is basic typing skills and internet connection
