Peca was the strongest link on the Quinnipiac team. I'm not surprised they aren't on that list with him leaving.

He was a great player but I'm pretty certain he can be replaced. They definitely should be considered at the top of the ECAC to start next year.

Union College standout Carr impressing Canadiens
http://www.nhl.com/ice/news.htm?id=774809

But none of those names topped the list for this member of the Canadiens front office. Instead, it was a widely ignored college free agent signing.

"The guy we're really excited about," the executive said that day, "is Daniel Carr."

Less than a year later, only Gilbert remains of those four other offseason acquisitions; Sekac was traded to the Anaheim Ducks in February, Parenteau signed with the Toronto Maple Leafs after the final year of his contract was bought out by Montreal, and Malhotra has been informed he will not be re-signed by the Canadiens.

Then there is Carr, poised to compete for a spot on the Canadiens this fall after a tremendous first season of professional hockey with Hamilton in the American Hockey League. Carr, 23, led AHL rookies and Hamilton with 24 goals in 2014-15, making him a prime candidate to fill a serious offensive need for the Canadiens.

The following is a simple accumulation of the numbers of non-senior players on each ECAC team, listed in the final USCHO ECAC league statistics for ECAC points. (http://www.uscho.com/stats/conference/ecac/2014-2015/) There were 80 players on the list and 24 were seniors. The seniors are assumed to be graduating and not returning and are not included in this count.

There is no accounting here with regard to players who have jumped into the pros. For example, I believe Colgate has lost at least 1

There is no adjustment for players who have missed games due to injuries or adjustments for scoring intensity (Points/Game).

This is a possible proxy for scoring depth and one of many possible metrics that we can look at to predict how the Dutchmen will do next year.

Number of returning players from USCHO ECAC top 80 (56 total)

St. Lawrence = 9
Harvard = 8
Yale = 7
Q = 6
Colgate = 6
Clarkson = 6
Union = 5
RPI = 3
Cornell = 2
Brown = 2
Dartmouth = 2
Princeton = 0

Footnote:

Those teams that went deep into the ECAC tournament played more games and added more points and are thus slightly advantaged.

- We return Vec, Wilkins, Taylor, Foo and Scarfo and 70% of our scoring.
- Harvard only loses 1, returns Vesey, Criscuolo, Moy, Kerfoot, Malone, Esposito, Hart, Newell. They only loose McNally (ugh)
- I did not include the Colgate losses of Johnson and Baun. Johnson did not make the top 80 anyway.
- Q loses Peca, Agosta, Federico but still have 6 returning.
- Yale loses NO ONE (double ugh)
- Dartmouth gets decimated, loses 6 and virtually all of its offense.
- Cornell loses 2 and returns 2
- RPI loses 3, returns 3
- Brown loses 1, returns 2
- St. Lawrence loses 2 and returns 9

The next metric that I looked at was talent. This is just about impossible to quantify. As a proxy I have taken the number of current NHL draft picks per team. As we all know, this variable has not always correlated well in years past. The following is a simple accumulation of the numbers of NHL draft picks on each ECAC team, listed in the current College Hockey News and updated with the last draft results (Harvard 2, Yale 1, Union 1) (http://www.collegehockeynews.com/reports/roster/Harvard/22) Because this number includes all the current rosters, including freshmen, no separate judgment is needed for each recruiting class.
There is no accounting here with regard to players who have jumped into the pros. For example, I believe Colgate has lost at least 1.
Again, this is a possible proxy for talent and one of many possible metrics that we can look at to predict how the Dutchmen will do next year.

Harvard = 10
Cornell = 6
Yale = 4
Clarkson = 3
RPI = 3
Brown = 3
Q = 2
Union = 2
Colgate = 1
St. Lawrence = 0
Dartmouth = 0
Princeton = 0
