    All Americans

    How is it that a Hobey Hat Trick and Mike Richter winner isn't a First Team All American?

    I don't get that.

    The reason for the talent in the west? Because MN didn't rely on Canada.

    That Richter Award winner had a lesser save percentage, goals against average, and winning percentage than a player in his own conference. Just saying!

    And a third, he's second best in the east.

    Which is right?

    2 of 3 put him the best goalie in the US. Which suggests list three is wrong. So the list is then suspect to me.

    Look at the stats...he was beaten in every category by Ellis! Just the facts but again you can't see that through your rose colored glasses!

    Re: All Americans

    Save percentage is the best stat we have for goalies. Previously you stated Ellis had a better save percentage than Demko...this was before the FF game. At the time, they had the exact same save percentage. You are an idiot.

    Actually, Ellis was higher when brought it out farther heading into the final four. Thanks for playing since numbers don't lie!

    Ellis 970/1036=.93629 save percentage
    Demko 1040/1111=.93609 save percentage

    The point being both Ellis and Boyle had similar years as Demko and didn't receive half of the recognition that he did.

    Demko is the better future pro goalie but if we are going for the best goalie in the nation, he wasn't better than Lyon or even Gahagen in save percentage.

    Stats up to the Frozen four are here

    Need some consolidation of the entities voting I think so some of this makes sense.

    The whole defensemen All-American awards based on points thing is also stupendously dumb.

    I agree, and I am so conditioned to it that it shocks me when it doesn't happen. RPI women's defenseman Josefine Hansen plays on the Danish National team which played in the Women's Div 1A World Championship recently. (That's the second tier tourney, the one below which the US, Canada, et al. play in.) She was named the best defenseman in the 6-team tourney despite not registering a single point in the five games that Denmark played.
