I was wondering who is in line for this award??

Is Brady Murray a shoo in coz he plays for UND?? or would some one like David Backes, the Minn State Freshman, have a chance??

What do you guys think??

Murray has a chance, but he is no where near a shoe-in simply becuase he plays for UND. Backes, Briggs, Raduns, Irmen and J. Parise have also made arguements for themselves.

I agree, the WCHA has a boatload of good candidates, including those. Some other names I'd add to list would be: Matt Carle (Denver), Matt Zaba (Colorado College), Taggart Desmet (MTU), and Robbie Earl and Andrew Joudrey (Wisconsin).

I like Carle and Earl the most, but I' don't know who Desmet is, what kind of game does he play?

Are you SURE that he played in the WHL? because if that's the case, it violates NCAA eligibility rules since WHL is Canadian Juniors. If the NCAA finds out about it, it could have serious repercussions for Taggart and especially MTU.

As the season has gone along, he's playing better and seems to gain more confidence with each game. He's still very much a project though. IMO, he's still trying to find his "niche" (for a lack of a better term) as far as his role and where he fits in in the Gophers lineup. It's evident that he's still learning and developing but he should be fine.

Yay! I guess that's good to hear. Be another probably 3 years till he even gets a look at by the Wild right?

My bad, I stand corrected. I researched it further. You're correct, he did get in 7 games with the Hitmen but then went back to Camrose. I was going by the info on the MTU site, which doesn't provide much insight on many of their players PRIOR to them entering the school.

Thanks for the setting the record straight on that one for me. ;)
