    The point is, Ovie didn't win the Cup and we didn't win the National Championship. Since those are the only two things that really matter in our respective leagues, we won as much relevant hardware as he did.

    No Huskies drafted yesterday.

    Let's hope Damon Whitten can change that direction real soon.

    I kept an eye on the later rounds just in case, but I wasn't surprised. Central Scouting only rated Kero and Seigo as 'C' prospects.

    I swear KD Warvie reads the boards.

    HOUGHTON - The NCAA is at it again.

    And many believe once the NCAA gets involved in anything, nothing good can come out of it.

    The body that governs college hockey for Division I and Division III men and D-I and D-III women recently proposed some rules changes for the game at a meeting with those schools in Florida. And as often is the case, some of the proposed changes are very controversial.

    The most radical changes proposed have to do with icing the puck. If one of the two new rules involving icing is adopted, a team playing shorthanded will not be allowed to ice the puck.

    The second rule would do away with no-touch icing. This new rule would put the icing call in the official's hands.

    The officials would make the determination whether icing should be waved off based on which player would reach the puck first. If the official feels the offensive team would have reached the puck first, icing will be waved off.

    If the race for the puck is considered a tie or the defensive team is ahead in the chase for the puck, icing will be called. Which team's player gets in front of the faceoff dots first will determine the call.

    These changes to the icing rule were not well received by the schools in attendance. The vast majority believe the rule should be left as is.

    "All of the D-I men's schools were against changing the rule," Michigan Tech coach Jamie Russell said. "It could make the referees less inclined to call a penalty because players would have to stay on the ice for the entire two minutes.

    "The rules committee's heart is in the right place. They want to make changes to improve the game, but some of the changes could have a severe impact (on the game)."

    A far less controversial rule has to do with the contact to the head call. If this new rule is put in place, players would receive a major penalty and could be kicked out of the game or suspended for the next.

    "The NHL has brought in a new rule eliminating blind-side hits," Russell said. "No matter what level of hockey it is, no one wants to see a player get hurt.

    "But it's a fine line because the game is so physical and players have become much bigger and faster."

    The committee is also considering allowing players to wear half-shields instead of the full facemasks they currently sport. But it was determined that not enough research had been done and the proposal was tabled until a final one could be drawn up.

    Three other rule changes were also proposed during the meeting. The first called for goaltenders to change ends between the third period and overtime.

    The second would do away with the obtainable pass, and the third would allow a team a power play even if it scored during a delayed penalty call. None of these proposals, however, have been permanently adopted.

    All the proposals will be approved or denied when the NCAA's Playing Rules Oversight Panel meets in July.

    There is only one way to find out. Let's link to a fake USCHO story about how NMU and MTU will be cutting athletic costs by having a unified/combined squad for hockey and then we'll see if it shows up in the paper.

    Just "intelligent" is probably enough.

    Yeah, about that. You should add "delusional" to the list, also.

    Weldie is pretty awesome. Although instead of running around to stay in the shot, you guys would probably design some gadget that recalibrated the camera when the cameraman tried to aim it elsewhere.

    There are always Michigan born players drafted and this year was no exception. This was one of the interesting stories of a first round draft pick from Michigan, Austin Watson to the Nashville Predators.

    When Watson was 12 years old, his parents, struggling financially with the downturn in the auto industry in their home state of Michigan, packed up and moved to Florida, where Mike had a job opportunity in sales.
    A gifted minor hockey player, Watson decided he would stay behind with his grandparents and play hockey and have a chance to play in top-level tournaments in Alaska and Quebec City. "The decision was basically mine," Watson said. Not yet a teenager, the decision wasn't based on "Will Austin Watson play in the NHL," but on wanting to continue to play with good friends at a high level. The playing was the easy part; the living apart from his ever-growing family for most of four years was less so.

    Also Justin Florek of Marquette was taken by the Bruins. He currently plays for NMU.
