A decidedly non-Cornell team. Maybe because we're a team and not individuals.


Right you are. Hard to conceive of any other ECAC champion that has had such sparse representation on the all-league teams.

Now we just need to win in LP.

But the thing that really annoys me is having Alec McCrea left off. I mean he's the "Best Defensive Defenseman" and can't make the team, even third team!!!!!!!!

5 of them are 5 out of top 6 d'men in points. Only Kaldis disturbed it.

I guess that signals how they decide.

It’s nuts that the defensemen are judged primarily on their offensive output, as shown by the selections.

I think that's an interesting pattern to observe, but it's still conclusory. Has anybody also checked, say, a list of all ECAC defensemen by +/- against these picks? Or number of blocked shots?

Yeah the first in +/- list is Amorosa, at #14. McCrea is third and we have 5/13 before Amorosa.

Basing all-conference defensemen on points isn't great, but I do think defense can be hard to measure beyond the eye test. Plus/minus and blocked shots both help, but they only go so far. Points is a hard and fast stat, so I can see the appeal. Plus, high scoring defensemen tend to be star players.

Yeah, but.................leaving off your pick for "Best Defensive Defenseman" tells a lot. If you can pick that, you ought to be able to decide if he belongs on All-ECAC team.

They said no, but I'm glad he's on our team.

Maybe, but somehow they were able to decide on a "best defensive defenseman."

Maybe what you can do is to pick your top offensive forwards first. Then, for each of your candidate defensemen, see how many points your stud forwards scored when they played against each other.

True, such an isolated +/- is partly a measure of the respective teams rather than the individuals involved, but that's a necessary problem with all individual awards in a team sport.

No real argument here. Vanderlaan is at least a 3rd teamer to me. I wish Smith got more recognition. Donaldson in my mind deserves the rookie team but that's probably #b31b1b glasses.

Note that 2nd place (and dead!) Union has even less representation than we.

I would have to imagine that this would remove Colton Point out of the running for ECAC player of the year. One would think.

It's the Dryden Award. I'm all for using that name. Frankly, I think the national goaltender award should also carry that name.

Probably due to budget issues, but some of these CHN articles look like they were posted as written without any amount of editing. Not as blatant as the stuff on USCHO though.

(Before adamw or anyone reads this the wrong way, I spend a ton of time on CHN, especially the stats page, and love how great a resource it is.)

There are very big sites, 10X, 100X the size of CHN or the lax sites, that make do with little or no editing. Every site is cost-conscious. Online advertising just doesn't match print advertising.

This is [Jackson's] fourth trip to the Frozen Four with Notre Dame and second in a row.

And from an RPI alum, God bless the Lally School of Management.

Out of 13 new players for next season including a transfer who showed up last season to sit out and two more transfers who won't be eligible until the second semester, 11 are in the online directory as of today and all are Business and Management majors. All five incoming women's players are also Business and Management majors.

I often think that the NCAA should require that the distribution of majors on a team should reflect the general student body, just like grades are supposed to, but it will never happen.

All five incoming women's players are also Business and Management majors.

I often think that the NCAA should require that the distribution of majors on a team should reflect the general student body, just like grades are supposed to, but it will never happen.

I can see the SEC mandating that 95% of all its graduates must major in Physical Education.
BU's disproportionate major of choice among the hockey team is the College of General Studies, or CGS, a holdall intended for freshmen and sophomores still determining life's path and not wishing to be frightened by undue academic rigor. Also known as Crayons, Glue, Scissors.

Not sure how many of the majors/colleges are wrong but Yanni is in the Hotel School last I knew....

God bless the Hotel school.

And from an RPI alum, God bless the Lally School of Management.

Out of 13 new players for next season including a transfer who showed up last season to sit out and two more transfers who won't be eligible until the second semester, 11 are in the online directory as of today and all are Business and Management majors. All five incoming women's players are also Business and Management majors.

I'm afraid I must defend CGS, as my son went there. It's true that BU channels students to CGS who are in the lower part of BU's admission distribution. As it was explained to us, these are students who have shown they can do well at BU but who need more structure acclimating to college. Unlike other colleges, like Arts & Sciences, CGS has a very structured curriculum, with no electives until the second year (and then only one per semester). Instead, the faculty decides what students need to know and team-teaches a set of courses, which themselves are coordinated with each other. For example, one course might be covering the Enlightenment at the same time a complementary one might be covering Newtonian physics. My son had applied to one of BU's most popular majors (Film & TV), but was admitted to CGS instead. Initially we were leery of this, thinking it was some sort of booby prize. But when we spoke to faculty members in F&TV, they said students coming out of CGS were often better than those coming from A&S. This persuaded us to let him go there.

It does not surprise me that CGS students are better prepared. At many colleges it's common for incoming students to spend their first two years fulfilling "General Education" requirements. Although some majors may prescribe certain courses to fulfill GenEd requirements (e.g., engineering might require calculus to satisfy a quantitative reasoning GenEd requirement), most majors allow the students to choose most of their courses. For example, I know of one university that allows students to choose from over 14,000 GenEd credit hours to fulfill a 40-hr GenEd requirement. In contrast to, say, Columbia with its great books tradition, this is the exact opposite: the university in question doesn't have the foggiest idea of any substantive knowledge students should have. And, of course, with a ratio of over 350:1 of credit hours to choose from per 1 credit-hour requirement, it's easy for students to find gut courses.

I'm very happy my son went through CGS before going into the F&TV major. When I heard him holding his own discussing quantum mechanics with his older brother, who was a National Merit Scholar and double-majored in physics and philosophy at a top liberal arts college, and when after we saw Lincoln together he mentioned that Democrats and Republicans "were reversed" (left-to-right) at the time of the Civil War, I knew he had made the right choice.

That is indeed an interesting list. Of the seven RPI men's players listed, only Brady Wiffen is expected to be back for the upcoming season. You may remember that he was unable to play his freshman season due to being a partial qualifier. Also, all of the seven are foreign-born.
