College Hockey Weekly has announced their newest historical look at college hockey with their "College Hockey: By the Decade." CHW plans to unveil All-Decade Teams, Coach of the Decade, Teams and Programs of the Decade, and Games of the Decade. They have already released their 2000s All-Decade Team...

I thought I would start this thread for discussion on how the decades unfold. Also, I believe CHW plans on doing each decade back to at least the 1930s. Anyway, enjoy!

This looks like fun! Glad to see DU's Matt Carle as a 1st team selection.

Too many CC Tiggies for my taste, But Sertich-Sterling-Seijna are hard to ignore.

I found out about this last night, and it looks like it should be a lot of fun. DU had a lot of really good players in the decade, and there are a few that could have found their way onto the list, but at the end of the day, it's really hard to be one of the top 18 players in a decade. :p:D:D

I'm surprised Chris Kunitz didn't get a nod. I know he lost the Hobey to Sejna, but I've never seen a single player be as valuable to his team as him. Single-handedly took the Bulldogs to the CCHA Regular Season Title, CCHA Championship Game and the NCAA Final Eight. All unchartered waters for the Bulldogs. He also had many great performances against other players on the list, like his multi-goal games against Miller.

I think he also got 2 goals against the Sioux and 2 goals against the Gophers in the NCAA tournament.

Little surprised at Leopold being second team when you look at the stats. Can't be that he graduated in 2002 when you look at the selections at forward.

Agreed. I had Leopold as a First Teamer, but he lost out on the second spot to Gilroy. I thought Leopold had a more complete career.

Forward was definitely a difficult spot to crack. I didn't have Kunitz on my ballot, but he was in the running. I believe he just missed out on the Honorable Mention list, as Johnny Pohl beat him out.

No he was not :p:D:D

Panzer was a near unanimous choice despite playing half his career in the 1990s.

Agreed. One less All-American honor, one more Hobey finalist honor and 50 more points.

I'm a pretty serious Denver homer, and frankly know very little about anything outside the WCHA, but there are a few things that I would hope to see from the 2000's. One would have been Matt Carle on the all-decade team, so there's that. I'd love to see the '01-'02 Denver team on there. 32-8-1, only to lose to Michigan on their home ice in the national tournament. It also seems like Gwoz should merit some consideration for coach of the decade, but I think there's a whole lot of competition there.

Coach of the Decade will be very interesting. Gwoz, Lucia, and York all won two titles in the decade. I would lean towards York though, as BC made 6 trips to the Frozen Four (Lucia only made 3, while Gwoz only made 2), 5 title games, and won it all twice.

Agreed. I would imagine that BC will be Program of the Decade.

How they handle the 90's ought to be interesting.

Agreed. LSSU, Michigan, and Maine each won two, while BU was constantly at the door, and took home 1 title. Then of course you have North Dakota, Wisconsin, and Northern Michigan all with 1 title, but they had struggles through big portions of the decade as well. Minnesota was a near-constant threat up until the very end of the decade, and a variety of other teams were strong throughout portions of the decade (ex. Clarkson, Harvard, CC, Vermont).

Also, I don't think they plan on finishing the 2000s before moving to other decades. On our last conference call we got our ballots for the All-Decade team for the 1990s, so that could very well be next. I suppose we'll see though.
