    Anybody know why he left? Did anyone see it coming? How is this going to impact the team? Any thoughts?
    He is going home to his alma mater.

    Exactly.. this is not a hard one to figure out the motives, especially considering that Quinnipiac is not exactly a chump change program . I'm sure the money is better too. Leaves U in a bit of a tough space, as most coaches dance cards are filled out this time of year, but hopefully Rick can find another good one. Also hope this doesn't mean that any of the current recruits decide to not come..

    Money. He almost left twice before. Once for Princeton, and once for a DIII job at a school not even considered good by DIII standards, so I'd imagine everyone saw it coming.

    Or Prep. MC has had a nice run as far as the Mass Public/Parochial schools go. But most players that are destined for D-1 move on to another level for a year or two from these schools. Times sure have changed since Boston public schools sent players directly to D-1 (For BU specifically, the Sacco brothers and Shawn Bates from Medford High, Shawn McEachern from Matignon, and Keith Tkachuk from MC.

    Very much agree. It's hard to move from Prep to D-1 despite PG programs that can "tack on" a year. Some of the Prep facilities like those at Andover (Class A) and St. Sebs and Nobles (ISL) are remarkable. The academics are remarkable too.

    Is there a running list somewhere that shows all the former Dutchmen that are now playing in the ranks of professional hockey?

    Quick question who are the top all time scorers in Union's D1 era ?
    Is that much different from the all time scoring leaders for post season play ?

    If I had to guess my top ten all time scorers would be:
    Carr, Prezniuk, Trabucco, Zajac, Simpson, Walters,Ciampini, Welsh, Bodie & Vech
    Post Season top ten:
    Carr, Prezniuk, Zajac, Simpson, Ciampini, Jooris, Welsh, Novak, Bodie & Ghost.

    It would be interesting to see how much different the all time top ten is different from the postseason top ten.

    i am pretty sure I must have missed a few players on both of my lists.

    Its that blue-collar mentality that could propel him to a long and successful career in the City of Brotherly Love. Its important to remember where you came from and stay within yourself, Gostisbehere said. Dont get too big of a head. And hard work pays off.

    Pretty close.. all-time D-1 scorers are as follows (from Union Media Guide)

    1. Daniel Carr 157
    2. Adam Presizniuk 131
    3. Kelly Zajac 128
    4. Mat Bodie 124
    5. Daniel Ciampini 118
    6. Jason Walters 115
    7. Wayne Simpson 115
    8. Jordan Webb 114
    9. Mario Valery-Trabucco 114
    10. Mike Vecchione 113
    11. Chris Ford 104
    12. Joel Beal 101
    13. Jeremy Welsh 100

    Vecks obviously will make it to at least #2 on the list with a 20+ point senior campaign and could move past Carr if he has a huge season. The interesting one to me on this list is Mat Bodie @#4 - he really was consistently excellent from the blueline and averaged over 30 points a season, finishing his senior year with 39 points. He was a bit overshadowed by other players but certainly makes a case for top D-man of all-time alongside (or very closely behind) Ghost. Ghost BTW finished with 82 points and likely would have cracked top 10 with a good senior year.

    I couldn't find any numbers on post-season D-1 leaders, but would suspect that its dominated by players on the F4 and NC teams, particularly the NC senior class (Carr, etc.) that was on both. Really is unfair to compare, as it is so dependent on the success (or lack thereof) of the team as a whole and how many post-season games there were - e.g. players like Webb, Ford and Beal barely played any post-season games.

    ADK thanks for the update. I was pretty close but left off a few great players. I completely agree that the postseason list on a comparative basis is completely different and driven by number of games and how successful a season the team had. It would be interesting to see how much different that postseason top 15 list might be. Jooris, Ghost and Novak would probably crack that list. Per Rolevio maybe only Ken Schott keeps those records .....

    Unofficial tally of postseason points and it is certainly driven by the number of games and team success.

    Carr 26 pts 25 games
    Novak 22 pts 26 games
    Champ 21 pts 25 games
    Sullivan 21 pts 24 games
    Bodie 18 pts. 25 games
    Vech 17pts. 15 games
    Jooris 16 pts 16 games
    Ghost 14 pts. 21 games
    Hatch 14 pts 25 games
    Simpson 12 pts 19 games
    Prez 12 pts 11 games
    Zajac 12 pts 19 games
    Welsh 11 pts 14 games
