    Thanks...great case...I watch/see a lot of hockey and there are none in the Top (next) 5 NCAA players that play the 200' game as well as he does against the best competition in college hockey - that he scores is also a compelling factor and had I a vote he'd get it.

    That said, I'd be very surprised if they awarded it to a Boston area player for the 4th year in a row and to a program that isn't having that great of a year.

    You are correct...any scholarship funds, i.e. in kind grants for tuition, books and housing that he receives goes 1-1 against the team's scholarship allocation. I believe that the NCAA recently carved out an exception for food and, possibly, some personal items...i.e. a program can use funds to feed its players for the semester without it counting against their scholarship, pool...

    Federal and State awarded aid is exempt...

    It came from the folks who make these decisions. Perhaps Theut has subsequently earned a partial as the team needs a practice goalie. Frye had aged out of juniors and was, AFAIK recruited walk-on. It's entirely possible that either or both of these guys have financial aid - instead of scholarship $. Keeping your kid outfitted with goalie equipment can quickly help a family to qualify for aid . IIRC if a player gets financial aid, there are severe limits on the amount of scholarship $ he may receive (and vice versa).

    There's a significant drop in G/GP between #1 BC and #5 ND...it's not just Northeastern...I will note that BU swept BC this past weekend...one was a shutout...BC's remaining games has them going against some pretty good goaltending...

    Before we beat up on the goaltending any more than we already have, it's instructive to note that NU has three players among the top ten scorers nationally (ZAR - 4; Sikura - 7; Gaud - 10) but absolutely nada among the remaining 40. Says something (bad) about secondary scoring.

    So we're winning the conference tournament? Sounds good to me.

    FiveHole, I can see there was some tongue in cheek sarcasm there but you did put NU in the 12 spot. No taking that away from you!
