Connor had same points as eichel did last year. And vesey had a better junior year than senior year. *scratches head*

He played 4 years.

I am sure he is deserving, but more deserving than the other two?
They made a deal with him last year, return to school and the award is yours. Voting ending before he spurned Nashville.

The Hobey winner is not the best player.

So what is the Hobey definition? The not quite best player in college hockey for that particular year :)

I say this as a Michigan fan, this does not shock me. While I of course wanted Connor to win if you look over the requirements for the award they picked the correct individual this year. The Hobey Baker Award is about more than just who has the best stats. It's true that in recent years it has been primarily about statistics but this year the voters had a chance to right the ship. That and have a winner from Harvard, that never happens. The kid had a decent year albeit
slightly down compared to last year but his off the ice presence iswhat won it fo him. The kid attends freaking Harvard, that's no school for dummies. He speaks fluent Mandarin. He also participates in many causes off the ice. He is the captain of his team. The guy just gets it.

Connor meanwhile kicked ***** on the ice this year but didn't do much else outside. The kid partcipated in "Mock Rock" this year when is a one-time vareity show which the hockey team has their freshman class enter every year. Sure all of the proceeds from "Mock Rock" go to charity but it isn't like it was his choice. "Mock Rock" is basically a simulation of SNL. I'm pretty sure that decision comes down from Coach Berenson as a way for the incoming Freshmen to form team bonding.

He also grew a mustache (maybe) for Movember to bring awareness to Prostate Cancer. Basically said, he was more concerned about learning where his classes were. I'm not yelling at him, as a Freshman you're undergoing a lot of changes and not expected to be in a lot of causes. I guess I'm complaining more that Eichel won last year. I think the right person won this year even though I wanted Kyle Connor to win.

What's really funny about this argument is that both sides think they have a shot against Connor.

How you feeling?

There are always going to be arguments made for the other two who didn't win. That is why they were nominated in the first place. Jimmy was a more complete player this year and if Harvard's D were more skilled, his numbers would have been better because he wouldn't have had to spend so much time in his own zone helping to clear the puck. He played a 200 foot game every time he suited up. I didn't see much of Connor or Demko. They are great players but I think the committee went with the most complete player of the three.
