First - let me say - I don't want to do this, but here's an idea if someone else wants to run with it.

The USCHO Div. III posters could award a weekly D III Player of the Week. I see it running something like this.

Each week a thread would be started to take nominations.
Any poster could nominate a player, something simple like:

Chris Cannizzaro, Hobart, 4 goals and 3 assists as Hobart beat Lebanon Valley 9-1 and tied Neumann 5-5.

Pick a time to close nominations, say 5pm on Monday, then whoever's running the thing could pick what he thinks are the 5 best and set up a poll. Close the poll sometime on Wednesday and the player with the most votes is the DIII Posters Player of the Week.

I would actually be willing to run this, if there is interest. However, I'd like to come up with a more concrete (i.e. objective) way to whittle it down to 4-5 players for each week's poll.

My initial thoughts on this would be:


*Must have won at least 1 game that weekend.

*Items to consider for skater: Goals and Assists, GWGs,
PPGs or SHGs, GAA of the opposing Goalie.

*Items to consider for Goalies: Saves, Save %,
Goals Allowed vs. Avg Goals per Game of opponent, Shutouts.

If there is interest, I'll probably use these criteria to narrow the field of nominated players before posting a poll.

What do people think? Is there interest, now that I'm offering my time to do it?

Sounds great to me. I'm game!
