You pretty much have the 1st team nailed.

I'd be inclined to stick Joe Colborne on the 1st team, for sure on the 2nd team. He has 20 goals & 18 assists in all games. He really exploded in the 2nd half of the season when DU went 14-2-2. He scored a goal in almost every game but two or three.

And perhaps Ruegsegger on the third team at least.

Rakhshani Ruegsegger & Colborne scored 56 goals for the #1 team in the country.

Non-conference games don't come into play when picking the all-conference teams. As far as I know at least. Colborne and Ruegssegger were right there still though. There was about 6 extra forwards that anyone could make a case for. Those two and VandeVelde, Olson, Sweatt, and Stepan.

The changes I'd make are Kevin Genoe from Tech over Mike Lee, Kristo as ROY (yes, I'll admit bias) and Jason Gregoire on 3rd team over Mike Connolly (I'll admit bias on this one too).

Gregoire over Vandy? :confused:

Either or really....but, I do give a slight nod to Gregs. They've both played extremely well, especially as of late. I certainly wouldn't argue either.

They are both right in the mix but the forward class is soooo deep. Hard to pick who you would take off the list.

Check out some of the "real" ballots for the All WCHA Team. http://www.westerncollegehockeyblog.com/2010/3/9/1363871/linkorama

The names Cheverie, Rakhshani, Ruegsegger, Colborne, Weircioch, and Donovan appear on a regular basis. :) :)

With all this talent it sure would be unfortunate for you guys to lay an egg in the postseason!:)
