    Eichel #2
    Lachance #4
    Whitney #5
    Wilson #7
    Keller #7
    Young #11
    Quinn #13
    ---------
    Rest of the first rounders (including this year's draft)
    Shattenkirk #14
    McAvoy #14
    Farabee #14
    Fabbro #17
    Keith Tkachuk #19
    Bellows #19
    Kealty #22
    Oettinger #26
    Coyle #28
    Bowers #28

    Amonte was a fourth round pick by NYR in '88. Drury, a 3rd rounder by Quebec in '94, was the second Terrier taken by Quebec that year after Kealty (the new assistant GM in Nashville). One other BU pick in '94: Albie by the Islanders in the 5th.

    Three Terriers were taken early in NHL supplemental drafts: John Cullen, #3 in '86 by Buffalo; Sniper Tomlinson #3 in '89 by Toronto; and Jacques Joubert, #9 in '93 by Dallas.

    The first Terriers ever drafted: In 1970, Ric Jordan, Bobby Brown, Tim Regan and Bob Gryp. Grypper was the first to reach the NHL.
    2/3 of the 1st Round picks have been in the past 15 or so years. With better players having been picked in later rounds in the past (Amonte, Drury, McEachern, etc.) it seems like talent evaluation at the NHL level is improving.

    Hmmmm. Only four players with a gpa over 3.0 last year? Is that a typical number?

    I was thinking as I typed those three that if I had four, he would be number 4. His straight ahead speed was just ridiculous. And he and Amonte together were a lethal combination.

    Amonte and Eichel were the only two that came in as freshman and were clearly the best players on the team. Drury was different - solid freshman season, but just crushed it after that, going from 12 goals (mostly on the 4th line - boy how times have changed) to 36 the next year. And with him, his dogged determination to get the puck was part of what made him special.

    McEachern's OTGWG v Maine in the 1991 HEA finals is still one of my favorites.

    What they did to us 3 weekends later was not nice.

    0 goals in 49 games over the past 2 seasons - not a surprise. He doesn't bring the "other" aspects that you get with a guy like Curry, so if he ain't scoring, it's hard to justify playing him.

    I have to admit that Wilson's NHL career has been disappointing to me - I expected him to be able to do more, based on how good he looked that sophomore year. I thought he would slot in as a dependable two way forward with a nice scoring touch - 2nd line material.

    I'm confused by your last statement - do you mean what NMU did to BU? Or are you a Clarkson fan and mean what BU did to you? Or was 3 weekends the Michigan series?

    Summer plus: reading about the newcomers on terrierhockey blogspot (What happened to Evan Tironese?)

    Summer minus: Four guys above 3.0 gpa? Must hit the books! Maybe Albie can point out the value of the education...
