Now that we're at the break, let the speculation begin. Is it between Amanda Kessel and Noora Räty?

If Bozek keeps her game up, she needs to be in the mix, and I don't care what they say about defensemen not getting serious looks. Ruggerio won, and I sincerely think Bozek is as qualified a player.

Anyone that doesn't wear a rodent on their jersey that can crack the top 10, or 3?

No, it is Amanda!!! We should talk about the runner ups. We talk a lot about stats on here and her line is 19 games played 25 goals 29 assists for 54 its +39. She scores, she helps other people score and she knows where the "D" zone is.

As for runner up, Noora is in there for sure. I too would like to see a D-man in the mix.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but each team only can nominate two players? So for the Gophers how do you choose between Kessel, Noora and Bozek?
As for other teams, I can't speculate about non-WCHA teams since I see almost none of them, but for some of the WCHA teams this is what I think.
UW - Decker and Rigsby
UND - the sisters

To answer my own question for the Gophers, if I only get two to put up, and not as a knock against Kessel, but I would choose Noora and Bozek. Mostly because Kessel is a Junior and will get another shot; a crummy reason I know.

Ok I went back and looked at WCHA POTW honors and nominations and now I'm all torn up between Kessel, Noora and Bozek. I may have to retract my previous statement and go with Kessel and Noora.

Kessel won't be on the Ballot next year, perhaps two years from now (Team USA). Heisman went to a freshman.

You have to go with the best options, regardless of year. Never know what's going to happen during their senior year. Wisconsin has had two junior Kaz winners in Bauer and Decker. Take 'em when you get them.

Agosta was in the running as a freshman, and again 3 more times, but never won it. Agree with those that say, nominate to put the best on the ballot. You never know what any future season brings.

Off the top of my head from the ECAC view here would be a list of candidates (from the top 5 teams in the league).

Rattray and Howe from Clarkson (or possibly Ambrose as the top D)
Dempsey from Harvard
Babstock from Quinnipiac
Jenner and Saulnier from Cornell
Sabatine from SLU

My personal pick from that lot would be Dempsey. (Based in a limited sample size of watched games).

Bump. I can't believe there hasn't been more response to this. Where is Dave1381?

Unless Amanda Kessel is a complete sociopath off the ice, I don't see how she doesn't win it.

She's no sociapath! But she'll bury you on the ice. She is a complete player. My vote goes to Kessel no contest.

I think Jessica Wong is very deserving of a nomination, at least.

I would have to give it to Noora just based on what she gives the Gophers. The problem as I see it, everyone is so preoccupied with offensive numbers. Take Noora off the Gophers and I would put money up that they aren't undefeated at this point, and probably would've been no where near the consecutive wins record. The story for most of her career has been, score a goal and you have a 60/40 chance of winning. Score two or three goals and now you have about a 90/10 chance of winning.

I've read this post at least 6 times and it is still funny.

Team Noora over here as well.....

If not Noora, Sara Bauer.

This is not true of Kessel as well?

Also, given that the difference between a "great" goaltender and a "good" goaltender is at most like 0.5 GPG, and the Gophers have won every game by MULTIPLE goals, you could probably have put an average goaltender in net for Minnesota and there is a 95% chance they would still be undefeated.
