    It's this "honest discussion" thing that I try to stick to, rather than complete and total boorish homerism. I know it's pretty rare, so it's not completely surprising if if confused you....
    If you don't change the world today, how can it be any better tomorrow?

      add Maine to the list.............they had something like (30) players stockpiled by Shawn Walsh (including 4 goalies) in their hayday. Maine's abuse was one of the major reasons the NCAA established the Clearing House when they and, I think, Wisconsin were recruiting the same blue chipper. Wisconsin couldn't come close to getting him admitted, while Maine had no problem. When the dust settled, there were two very different grade reports in existance.

        If not for injuries and pro defections, BC's 2001 class could have been very, very special. Chuck Kobasew only stayed one year, but what a year he had with a 27-22-49 scoring line and winning the MVP award of both the HE & NCAA tourneys. I could easily have seen him putting up 35+ goals if he returned for his Sophmore year. Ben Eaves seemed to be injured his whole career at BC and not only missed many, many games, but he also played long stretches while seriously injured with knee and rib problems. Even so, he still managed to put up 169 points in his shortened career and could have been BC's best ever had he stayed healthy. Tony Voce was the third forward of this class and was the only one who played close to a full slate of games for all 4 years and put up an impressive 90 goals. On defense, JD Forrest was an elite recruit who played exceptionally well until late in his Sophmore year when he suffered a lacerated wrist/tendon and was just never quite the same. Still had a very good career putting up 98 pts.

          carltonbarret's post made me curious. The players who entered Cornell in the fall of '66 played 576 games and put up 650 points, good for 0.70 goals and 1.13 points per game - including defensemen (but not goalies). The forwards averaged 1.33 points per game in their 281 games played. They were led by John Hughes (father of Olympic gold medalist figure skater Sarah Hughes) with 151 pts in 78 games (1.94 per game).

          Anyone have career numbers for one of your favorite classes?
