  1. Sioux Fans: Lets all be respectful regardless of tonight’s outcome. Every player is worthy of the award like he said and should by no means be “bood” because our player didnt win! Lets cheer accordingly no matter who wins k. I know I will

  2. Elliott you referred to Frattin and ‘second straight NCAA title’.

    Do you mean “WCHA Final Five title”? Thanks

  3. Exactly when did Matt Frattin score in double overtime to give the Fighting Sioux their second straight NCAA Title? Curious fans want to know!

      • No problem. Just some good natured ribbing. You actually do a fabulous job and I have enjoyed reading your work for years. I only wish there was more of it all year long!

    • Class of ’04. I covered the games at Princeton and Yale for the Valley News (regular season vs. Yale, not the Ivy Shootout). My friend from the class of ’01 (you might have seen him with a very large green Dartmouth flag) is always trying to get me to leave the press box more.

  4. Almost all of the Sioux fans I saw on friday gave Andy a standing ovation. I was proud to be a Sioux fan on friday. Thursday was a bit different with the guy in the corner flying the bird that was uncool he should be very prou of himself.

  5. As a Sioux fan, everyone knows that we would have killed for a little redemption by having Frattin getting the Hobey; but by no means would we take away from Miele’s year. Playing in a very good CCHA (as seen by having half the participants in the Frozen Four), and putting up 60 points is darn respectable. Also, Miele seems to be a very humble and gracious person without a troubled past; it is hard to disrespect someone like that. However if Atkinson had won, it may have been a different story.

  6. The Hobey Baker Award for “Character”? When you train hockey players to be “fighters” – to beat the hell out of your opponent on the ice and then are shocked and judge a player not worthy of an award off the ice because he continues to demonstrate the “manliness” and fighting spirit of hockey, you deserve to be called a hypocrite! Whether you have had a few beers and get into the “fighting spirit” – throwing a few chairs and tables around – or whether you are called up one morning when your parents need help because they are being threatened by a gang of violent, abusive, and criminal teenagers with records, who are roaming the neighborhood looking for their next victim – and you show your “fighting spirit” to protect them, getting yourself arrested along with the gang – it seems to eliminate you from the “squeeky clean” personna the Hobey people and other award appointers and bloggers seem to be looking for. If you are rewarding for “squeeky clean, then you have the wrong sport! Hockey and fighting are one in the same. Hockey has evolved that way. It’s time to re-evaluate the award and your analytic thinking..
