Noel Reuben? He coached Avon's Ryan Siedem (BC) too...

Whose track record? Reuben's or Bradley's *advisor*?

Gr8Sk8M8.. you are a NU well wisher..
right? 'cause most of us on the NU forum.. ya know, want to be about that (least i think so) & the program to succeed in a competitive hockey landscape. I would wish a good prospect would want to come to a good school (which NU certainly is).. yr in, yr out.

Yes...I am a NU well wisher...I'm also a hockey guy which is something that you folks always fail to consider or are too busy trying to find fault with whatever I post.

Two odd years ago, I said to not count on Kyle MacClean actually attending NU...4 odd years ago I said not to count on Cam Darcy finishing the year...4 years ago I said Oksroba wouldn't be back...5 years ago i gave a heads up on blockbuster late breaking recruits...Roy brothers... all met with disbelief in various venues and forums by the Huskie faithful...

I hope Bradley attends NU but he's 15 years old...he has the OHL draft this year and while his advisor group is well known for some of the local players in the NHL *cough*eichel*vesey*cough* who have played college hockey...Bradley is a different situation...

McLean was an easy call as he had been drafted by the same OHL team that his dad had played for. When you made these forecasts, what was your screen name at the time?

It's good to know that I'm consistent. What were some of your screen names? Who knows? I might have liked one of them.

Are you a politician? Perhaps a spokesman for the president? I ask a question, don't get a specific answer, and find you've answered with a question of your own.:rolleyes: What is HF referring to?

I would guess Hockey Futures board. Far more focused on NHL/draft pick stuff.

Interesting read. On the first table when you looked at Opp win% did you include their records against the team you are actually considering? It probably won't make a huge difference, but for the story you are trying to tell it would be more exact. Additionally, how is it possible that teams Kelleher has played OOC have played >120 more games than NU or Union's opponents. Also since Union plays Ivy League opponents I find it surprising their opponents have played 37 more games than NU, as they have 6 in conference opponents who play nearly 10 fewer games than NU's equivalent opponents.

I am not a huge fan of punishing a player for being on the ice when empty net goals are scored for their team. For one thing it means they were on the ice in crucial situations. Secondly it means they succeeded in those crucial situations. From a pure points perspective its interesting to track, but I am not sure it can be considered a huge negative.

Northeastern's OOC games tended to be two games series against the same team, so their total games played would only count once (For example, QU played NU twice, but their 34 game schedule only counted one time). UNH played teams predominantly one time each, in fact they did not play a single one of their out-of-conference opponents twice. So while they played the same number of OOC games, the fact that UNH played more teams meant there were more records to be included in the calculation of winning percentage. The same logic applies to why Union has more games in their calculation than NU, in spite of the Ivy League teams. Of Union's 11 OOC games, only twice did they play the same opponent twice.

If that was a butchered, incoherent explanation I apologize.
